When electronic circuits are tested, the test campaign consists of multiple tests that should be executed on different hardware measurement equipment, interconnected via RS-232, LAN or GPIB. Each test includes a series of actions to be taken at different time intervals. To ease the repeatability of a test campaign, it would be beneficial to have a framework running on low-cost hardware (e.g. raspberry pi), executing a series of tests and storing the resulting measurements in a database. The goal of this thesis is to develop and demonstrate a flexible, user-friendly, lab automation test framework, based on a raspberry pi, interconnecting with different devices.
