Scope of this Article
This article serves as a reference document for the user to set up the DUT (Device Under Test) and configure the test setup before running tests on the GRL-WP-BST-C3 (aka GRL-C3) WPC Qi Wireless Charging Base Station Tester Hardware via the GRL-C3 Automation Test Browser Application.
Test Configuration with GRL-C3
The GRL-C3 Browser App Test Configuration screen allows the user to select which set of tests is run on the DUT, set up test parameters, run selected tests and generate test reports.
- Open the GRL-C3 Browser App and connect to the GRL-C3 tester hardware. For details on using the Browser App and initial hardware setup, refer to the GRL-C3 Browser App user documentation in http://graniteriverlabs.com/download-center/.
- Go to the “Test Configuration” screen as shown in Figure 1 below.
Figure 1: Test Configuration Screen
Before running any tests, make sure to configure the BSUT Self Declaration Form as described below.
BSUT Self Declaration Form
Before running tests, the user will need to provide information on the DUT using the BSUT Self Declaration Form as follows:
Figure 2 Configure BSUT (DUT)
- DUT Type: Use the DUT Type drop-down to select either “BPP” (Baseline Power Profile), “EPP” (Extended Power Profile), or “EPP5” (Extended Power Profile 5) as supported by the DUT.
- Transmitter Type: Use the Transmitter Type drop-down to select the coil type of the DUT.
- Qi-ID: Enter the device identifier of the DUT in the Qi-ID field.
