Abstract:

The concept of utilizing a computer as an aid for test program design and validation is not new to automatic testing technology. During the 1960s a number of attempts were made to develop simulators to simplify the test program debugging and validation effort. Most, if not all, such efforts proved to be less than effective. The complexity of the units to be tested generally made modeling prohibitively expensive. Attempts at modeling circuit designs to generate test programs with computers were frustrated by the same difficulties plaguing automated circuit design systems the models required extensive libraries of component characteristics which were extremely costly to develop and very difficult to express mathematically.
