OAL Timer Test (Windows CE 5.0)
The OAL Timer Test confirms that the timers in a board support package (BSP) and OEM adaptation layer (OAL) operate correctly. This test verifies that the resolution and drift of each timer are within acceptable bounds and that no timer runs backward.
Although the test cannot automatically compare the timers on a target device to a wall clock to verify that the clocks do not drift relative to the wall clock, test case 141 provides a manual test for that purpose.
The following table shows the hardware requirements for the OAL Timer Test.
|Clock||At least one of the following clocks:
At least one clock must be known not to drift relative to a wall clock. You can use test case 141 to manually confirm this.
The following table shows the software requirements for the OAL Timer Test.
|Tux.exe||Tux test harness, which is required for executing the test.|
|Kato.dll||Kato logging engine, which is required for logging test data.|
|Tooltalk.dll||Application required by Tux.exe and Kato.dll. Handles the transport between the target device and the development workstation.|
|Oaltest.dll||Test dynamic-link library file.|
Note When you run the OAL Timer Test, the Microsoft® Windows® CE Test Kit (CETK) temporarily copies files to the root directory of the target device. Before running the test, verify that there is at least 0.3 megabytes (MB) of free space in the root directory of the target device. If there is not sufficient space in the root directory of the target device, the test cannot run.
