I have a complete RF test program developed in VEE. Now this test program is going to be used on a test computer to test a product. My problem is that there needs to be a wrapper around this program which calls the VEE test program and also controls a handler which changes the DUT. There is a need for handshake between the test program and the handler controller. To explain it more clearly this is what I need to implement.
Handler controller program:
1/checks the ready to change flag
2/checks the bin number and takes the tested DUT to appropriate tray
3/places a new device in the test fixture
4/sets a ready to test flag
1/checks ready to test flag
2/tests the device
3/sets the bin number and the ready to change flag
So, the RF_Test.vxe needs to be able to sent out data to be used by another program and wait for data to be provided by another program. I would appreciate any advice you can provide, even suggestions to new implementation tactics.
