Title: Design of a P2P-based network architecture for automated test equipment
Author: Pandit, Parag
Abstract: Schemes that use intercormected devices such as control systems and Automated Test Equipment (ATE ) traditionally use software that is built upon the client -server model . As a result , these systems are incapable of guaranteeing control of the master over slaves in the event of many cases of system failure . Also , these systems are often written in compiled languages like 'C' or 'Assembly' , which makes the task of recompiling software and rebooting systems necessary when modifications are performed . In an effort to provide greater fault tolerance and reliability , we explore the possibility of using the P2P model for networking devices . Moreover , we attempt to use scripts for defíning system behavior , which provides flexibility and ease in making modifications at runtime . We met our goal by developing a distributed P2P architecture for confederations of devices and by defíning an XML -based scripting language for writing distributed applications that run on the said platform . Message protocols for communication between devices were defíned . Many useful features were implemented that make the framework powerfiil and yet simple to use .
