The intent of this document, ANSI/IEEE Std 716-1985, IEEE Standard Common
ATLAS (ClATLAS), is to define a high order language which is a subset of Level 18 of
IEEE Std 416, Abbreviated Test Language for All Systems (ATLAS). The language described
in this document is to be used for the writing of test programs for Units Under
Test (UUTs), so that these programs can operate on various makes and models of Automatic Test Equipment (ATE). The subset is defined in terms of two sections. Section A consists of essential verbs and syntax structures; Section B consists of nouns, noun modifiers and units that are selectable, depending upon the application.
