REMOTE CONTROL OPERATION
Tapestry provides an ETHERNET, RS232, GPIB gateway by which the simulator hardware can be controlled via remote control for any location - (Ethernet providing the most powerful framework allowing for control from a separate physical location).
Our remote control implementation:
- Simple text strings, A simple format, such as $LoadScenario < Scenario Name >, $Start, $Stop, $SetPower provides a simple token strings that can be sent asynchronously to the hardware.
- All commands receive an $ACK.
- 100's of Scenario's can be commanded via the Interface. Our remote control was designed to facilitate large-scale product regression testing etc.. a SCRIPT FILE can be developed that simply lists the names of the Scenario's to be run.
- Complete operation via DOS-BAT files
