In Fall of 2020, TimeSys and Sony proposed a "board farm REST API" for managing boards in a lab.

Here is some information about that project:


In October, 2020, Harish Bansal of TimeSys and Tim Bird of Sony gave a presentation about the API at Embedded Linux Conference Europe, 2020.

At that time, the following had been accomplished and demonstrated:

  • the API had been added to TimeSys' board farm server (
  • a command line tool called 'ebf' had been developed
  • support for ebf was added to the Fuego test framework
  • a test was developed which used the API to executed a test in a lab-independent fashion
  • the test had been executed on a board in the TimeSys board farm from a LAVA system and a Fuego system
