To enhance the development efficiency of test programs in Automatic Test System (ATS), a framework of test application development platform based on ATML (Automatic test description language) standard is built in this paper. ATML-oriented test application development platform contains configuration tools, test flow description, ATS resource description, and runtime system. ATML is used to describe ATS-related information and the test flow based on signal definition. By leveraging the ATML description documents, runtime system achieved the automatic matching of the test resource and test requirements, and generated the test programs automatically. The platform is extensible, and the test program sets can be transplanted to other platforms.
