GeneralWell my struggle continues... PinprofessionalglennPattonWork2-Apr-14 3:23 
Hi All,
Need a whinge about the lack of documentation for some instruments I am using and having to interface to in the process of building the test rig for a customer. In the past I have used TTi instruments for ATE work and have a good understanding of them. They do the send them a command once the command has been operated on they send you back a prompt (a '>' ) to let you know it's safe to send another command fine you wait until you see a '>', I am told to use another companies the procedure appears to be send a command and get a line feed back. Fine, so you wait for a line feed, get a line feed and send the next command and splat! it all goes very wrong. Looking through the software I was told to fix (impossible!) I could see a these Thread.Sleeps() Looking at I thought oh that's bad, should do that with 'Sync Locks' to ensure data is correct and Thread safe. Face + Palm I can't seem to get it working I have had to use Thread.Sleep to allow for the instrument to reply. It's wrong but I can't think around it. Why reply when a command is given (even incorrectly) if you can't act on another. I get the impression these instruments are not really intended for ATE work. Sorry whinge over!!
If anyone reading this (if you got this far) is writing code for instrumentation bear this in mind. Here ends the rant!
