Pickering Interfaces Joins OpenTAP Open Source Test Automation Software Partner Program
CLACTON-ON-SEA, England–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pickering Interfaces, the leading provider of modular switching and signal simulation solutions for electronic test and verification, is now an OpenTAP Partner. Pickering joins other notable testing companies in the open-source shared software workshop that allows users to contribute, collaborate, and build automated testing solutions.
OpenTAP focuses on simplicity, scalability and speed using test automation to create a more efficient world. OpenTAP’s goal is to make test automation easier and more accessible to everyone, and it encourages shared experimentation and innovation, with the goal of inspiring and teaching partners better ways to test. automate.
Comments Noman Hussain, Vice President, Software and Strategic Business Development, Pickering Interfaces, “OpenTAP is part of Pickering’s philosophy of enabling test engineers to develop the best possible solutions for their specific automated testing needs. . next test platform by forcing them to choose a standard form factor from a limited catalog of test hardware; that’s why we have over 2,000 modular switching and simulation products. Having an open-source solution provides a similar approach for test software, allowing test engineers to build, modify, and customize their test applications without having to shell out thousands of dollars in licensing fees and end up in proprietary solutions. . »
The Pickering Map Plugin for OpenTAP supports Pickering’s entire product portfolio through a single interface. The plugin comes with open source software, distributed under the MIT open source license. It enables thousands of like-minded application engineers to take advantage of state-of-the-art switching hardware. They can customize the plugin, fix bugs, make feature requests, and make changes and suggestions to the OpenTAP ecosystem.
Hussain concludes, “Test engineers can use OpenTAP to help solve new test automation and system design challenges while preserving their tightly owned IP.” Read the full blog post here.
