This document describes the programmatic interface to OpenTAP and shows how to get started using OpenTAP for implementing test steps, instrument plugins, DUT plugins and result listeners.
This document is written for C# programmers who are developing OpenTAP plugins or integrating OpenTAP into their own applications. It is not a reference manual, but rather a document that describes the principles behind OpenTAP and how to use its most important features from a programmer's perspective. If you are looking for Python developer documentation, go here (opens new window).
Development requires the following software:
- Visual Studio 2019 or above
# Suggested Resources
VISA driver e.g. Keysight I/O libraries for instrument communication
# PathWave Test Automation
Together with OpenTAP it is recommended to use a Graphical User Interface. Keysight Technologies offers both an enterprise and community version of PathWave Test Automation Developer's System (opens new window) that provides a highly flexible graphical user interface and code examples.
