Create manufacturing and validation tests for hardware development.
Python Test Station
Welcome to the pytation project! This test framework package allows you to easily create tests for your custom hardware projects. Although building manufacturing test stations is the primary goal of this project, you can also build repeatable development and validation test stations. The framework allows you to run tests using a variety of runners including the graphical PySide6 runner and command line runner.
You will need Python 3.9 or newer. You can install this package using pip:
pip3 install -U pytation
Alternatively, you can clone the repo:
git clone https://github.com/jetperch/pytation.git cd pytation pip3 install -U -r requirements.txt python3 setup.py qt
You can then run the example:
python3 -m pytation gui pytation_examples.simple.STATION
On Windows, you may need to use
python rather than
This project uses several terms that can vary between different testing frameworks. This section defines the terms used throughout this project.
- Test: A single step that produces a pass/fail result along with optional detailed data.
- Suite: A sequence of Tests performed in order. The suite also produces a pass/fail result. If any test fails, then the suite fails.
- Device: An abstract definition for usually hardware instruments, sensors, and the device under test that are used by the tests to produce stimulus and measure results.
- Station: The combination of Devices and a Suite of Tests. For manufacturing test stations, the station often runs the suite using the manufacturing GUI, once for each device under test.
