hardware setup with OCTSIM attached to a jenkins build slave
The idea here is to have a sysmoQMOD attached to one designated jenkins build slave (could be the "left APU" in the 19" rack which also runs sim card reader tests? or any other suitable machine?).
Having this unit would allow us to run tests such as the TTCN3 CCID_Tests test suite.The unit should have
- dedicated, known SIM cards inserted in all but one slot(so we can execute tests both against present and absent slots)
- ability to completely power cycle the unit via USB (upstream hub port must support usb power switching)
- ideally, also a way by which we can press the "DFU" button programmatically to update the SAME54x firmware
Lets try to sort out how we can achieve this in a safe manner.

i am not sure if we can put it into the same vm running sim tests via jenkins, but i think it would be good it that works.
there is enough physical space and i'd even move the qmod testsetup for remsimtest next to it.
the major question is what 'switchbox' we want to use for 'pressing the button' and maybe switching (usb) power (may be simpler than syncing up some usbhub with a gpio board)
i am currently leaning to using some usb connected sbc like an arduino with usb-serial cable or such as 'gpio box' but i'll try using the USB-RLY08 board i found in our collection first (acm-serial).
another possibility is to use some serial-usb like cp210x and the flow-control lines for a small number of gpio.
the 'button' should be 'pressed' by a small n-channel fet like a bss138/bs170 or similar controlled by that gpio.

i have added the ascii representation of the commands for simple lookup/testing
Command Action dec hex ascii 56 38 8 Get serial number - returns 8 bytes of ASCII that form the unique serial number for module, I.E "00001543" 90 5A Z Get software version - returns 2 bytes, the first being the Module ID which is 8, followed by the software version 91 5B [ Get relay states - sends a single byte back to the controller, bit high meaning the corresponding relay is powered 92 5C \ Set relay states - the next single byte will set all relays states, All on = 255 (11111111) All off = 0 100 64 d All relays on 101 65 e Turn relay 1 on 102 66 f Turn relay 2 on 103 67 g Turn relay 3 on 104 68 h Turn relay 4 on 105 69 i Turn relay 5 on 106 6A j Turn relay 6 on 107 6B k Turn relay 7 on 108 6C l Turn relay 8 on 110 6E n All relays off 111 6F o Turn relay 1 off 112 70 p Turn relay 2 off 113 71 q Turn relay 3 off 114 72 r Turn relay 4 off 115 73 s Turn relay 5 off 116 74 t Turn relay 6 off 117 75 u Turn relay 7 off 118 76 v Turn relay 8 off
