* Might not work, to be reviewed
This tests are made to work stand-alone too. So, it is possible to call each one using 'python'
FmcAdc100M14b4cha tests on VME platform (SVEC)
CERN, BE/CO/HT. Created 2014

NOTE: The testing environment requires Python2.7 or later, but the current (may 2014)
SLC distro comes with Python2.4. Therefore, the must be launched
using a Python2.7 local insall.
E.g. ../../svec_pts/ubuntu/pts/2.7.3/bin/python
List of tests:
- svec_test00: Loads gateware and test mezzanine presence
- svec_test01: Tests all the peripherals
- svec_test12: Acquires all the channels
- svec_test30: Test software reset
- svec_test34: Test interrupts (eic + vic)
- svec_test36: Prints sdb records
- svec_test37: Test trigger time-tags (embedded in data)
- svec_test42: Sampling frequency counter
