WinDev is an Integrated Development Environment, created by PC Soft, used to develop software in WLanguage. Mainly, It is used to develop data software.

What is TestStand


TestStand is a instruction sequences engine and a development environment for creating a test sequencer evolved several common test for different products. We have a generic software that loads, as the test product, sequences specifying actions, tests and tolerances, and components (such as DLLs) for communication with the hardware.

TestStand: Car radio validation

The aim of this test bench is to validate electronic measurements and audio signals. The system must be enough flexible to permit the test of several models of car radio.

Radio car validation bench

Hardware Technology

The bench is composed of:

  • an industrial PC with:
    • a test sequencer, its measurement libraries and instruments drivers
    • VAN bus PCI card
    • a bar code reader .
  • a conversion RS-232 / I2C module
  • an audio AM/FM generator GPIB
  • an audio analyser GPIB
  • PXI chassis containing:
    • MXI3 card
    • DIO card
    • two switches matix cards
    • a multimeter card
    • GPIB card

Software Technology

Operating software : MS Windows XP
Measurement software : NI LabWindows/CVI
Test Sequencer : NI TestStand
Reports : MS Excel

How does it work ?

The operator connects the car radio to the interface which is connected to the test bench. He identifies the unit to be tested with the car radio bar code. The sequence test the sound quality, the consomation, the EEPROM software and the radio reception. At the end of the tests, a Excel formated report is generated.

The modular material and software architecture allows the component generisation and thus a change robustness gain.


TestExec is a test sequencer software, available in G language for LabVIEW or in C for LabWindows/CVI.

He was replaced by TestStand of National Instruments, offering more flexibility and is compatible with the latest technologies.
