Here is some information about board farms.


  • create a mailing list?
  • define API between test framework and DUT controller layer?
  • survey of existing tools, hardware, practices
  • collection of presentations?
    • that is, add a list of presentations on this topic from previous conferences
    • "Herd Your Boards, Become a Farmer" by Geert Uytterhoeven at ELCE2016
    • "Automation beyond Testing and Embedded System Validation" by Jan Luebbe (Pengutronix) at ELCE2017
