The IEEE Standards Coordinating Committee 20 (SCC20) directs the development of ATML standards for exchanging the following unit under test (UUT) test and diagnostic information among components of a test system:

  • Design data
  • Test strategies
  • Test requirements
  • Test procedures
  • Test results management
  • Test system implementations

The IEEE Std 1671 standard defines the ATML framework and specifies a set of common XML formats. Related standards specify XML formats for exchanging various categories of UUT test and diagnostic information. The ATML Test Description (TD) standard, IEEE Std 1671.1, specifies the XML format for exchanging the TD information.

Use the ATML TD standard and its associated standards to identify and document the descriptions of tests that can be used to implement a test program to test a UUT.

Schema Files

The ATML standards use XML schemas to specify formats. The <TestStand>\Components\Translators\ATMLTDTranslator\Schemas directory contains the following XML schemas the IEEE Std 1671 and IEEE Std 1671.1 (1.01 and 3.0) standards define:

  • TestDescription.xsd
  • Common.xsd
  • HardwareCommon.xsd
  • DatumTypes.xsd
  • Operations.xsd
  • IeeeStd1641.xsd

ATML TD instance documents can also refer to the following XML schemas related to the IEEE Std 1641 standard and also located in the <TestStand>\Components\Translators\ATMLTDTranslator\Schemas directory:

  • STDBSC.xsd
  • STDTSF.xsd
  • STDTSFLib.xsd

Refer to the IEEE standards listed below for more information about the definition and use of elements these schemas define.
