  • Hello VaultmicroDTM and Matthew71,

    The Windows Touch Tests are generally designed to run by hand, but there are a couple of tests that will require some additional equipment.  There are two vendors from which you can order this equipment from, or you could build your own jigs to assist with the testing.  Here are those vendors as well as some contact information.  Please contact them directly if you have any questions about making a purchase:

      Additionally, we have produced two videos which demonstrate how to setup and use the touch test tools and run the tests.  In the video we use the equipment from Triex.  Those videos are here:

      How to use the RA tool to measure Touch Latency (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/windows/hardware/jj161011) - Provides video instruction on how to use the Rotational Acoustic Test Tool for measuring touch down and touch panning latency in accordance with the Hardware Certification Kit (HCK) for Windows 8.

    •  How to Use the Precision Touch Testing Tool (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/windows/hardware/jj161013) - Provides video instruction on how to use the Precision Touch Test Tool (PT3) in accordance with the HCK for Windows 8.

  • Hi,

    I also test the Touch Screen for Win8 Touch Logo.

    You must buy RA tool because the WHCK server will check the connection with it.

    If server can't detect it, you will get failed message finally.

    About PT3 tool, you could find other suppliers or develop it by yourself

    However, I recommend to contact suppliers which got certification from Microsoft, because MSFT uses the same tool to test your Touch device.

    We are an engineering company specialized in robot-assisted testing of mobile devices and touch panels.

    Videos of our technology can be found here for more information: http://www.youtube.com/optofidelity

    We believe that with our solution the complete touch certification test process could be fully automated.

    Would you be able to help out in how we could go about validating our solution as being a certified test solution for the logo testing, please?

  • Dear Paul

    Does Microsoft really certify Industrial Technology Research Institute 's equipment about RA and PT3 test tools?

    Best regards,
