Virtual Devices

A Virtual Device in SeqZap is a device created by a tool or by a script (workbench tool). A Virtual Device is a type less device with any number of virtual device entities of any type.

A virtual device is used as an abstraction between the connected physical devices and the test script.
This is also called a testbed.
Each device entity is linked to another compatible source device entity.

By using a virtual device, existing scripts can remain unchanged if a physical device is replaced by another model or a completely different device type.

The test scripts can also be made more readable by assigning the virtual device entities meaningful names.

For more information on creating a virtual device in a test script please refer to the Devices section of the tools manual.
