Where could I find the materials on MSDN to build up our RA tool and PT tool of WHCK Touch test? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Sirs:

    I know that there are some vendors that could provide the RA tool and PT tool for the WHCK Touch test.

    But we choice not to use the ready-made tool.

    We want to integrate the RA tool and PT tool into our touch test equipment.

    Could you tell me where I could find the materials on MSDN to build up our RA tool and PT tool of WHCK Touch test?

    If not, please tell me how could I get these materials to build up RA tool and PT tool.

    Thanks.

    BR.

  • Hello Fievel,

    We have a couple of whitepapers that we have published to MSDN which go into detail about how the test works and the equipment that we recommend using in order to run the tests.  In order to execute the latency tests, you will need some extra equipment. 

    The first paper I would like to point out describes how to measure touch panning latency, and the equipment that is needed.  This is part of the RA tool that you will need to measure touch latency.

    The second whitepaper I would like to point out is how we designed the HCK to measure the delta from when the end user touches the screen to when Windows actually detects the touch.  The following whitepaper shows you the hardware you will need to run the test:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/hh966787

    Finally we have a video which demonstrates how all of the tools work.  The video can be viewed using the link below.

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/jj161011

    As for the remainder of the touch tests, they are designed to be run by hand, but you may need the aid of a jig or other device to help ensure that the touch gestures or actions required by the test are done accurately.  I would suggest watching the following video which demonstrates all of the interactions that are required by the test.  That way you will then have a feel for what additional hardware you may or may not need.

  • Dear Paul:

    Thank for your reply.

    Actually, I've ever done the test in the RA and PT video.

    For PT tool, I would say it should be easy to integrate into our touch test equipment.

    For RA tool, there is a control box and a step motor.

    The control box control the step motor and report the panning latency and touch down latency test data to the DUT by a USB connection.

    I need to know could we produce the RA tool control box by our self?

    If yes, I think I need some documents to tell me how the control box run the step motor, get the test data and send to USB.

    Did you have these documents?

    BR.

  • Hi Fievel,

    Everything you need are into those document. I've made my own RA Tool and it works perfectly. The control box is nothing but an Atmel dev kit.

    Best regards,

  • Hi Fievel,

    Everything you need is in the documentation.  Please use the documentation to help you with your test environment.  If there is something specific that you feel is missing, please let us know and we'll try and track down that information.  If you have specific questions about purchasing equipment, please contact the respective manufactures directly.

    Thanks,

    Paul
