VectorCast gets integrated with Trace32 development tools

May 12, 2015 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Embedded software tool provider Vector Software has integrated its test automation platform with the Trace32 microprocessor development platform from vendor Lauterbach. The move enables development, test and certification teams to set and continuously collect large amounts of test data from RAM-constrained embedded systems.

The integration benefits customers in aerospace, automotive, defense, medical devices, industrial control, and commercial environments where software quality and industry compliance are critical. The development team of Vector Software (which should not be confused with German software tool vendor Vector Informatik) already worked closely with Lauterbach and the TRACE32 implementation of IEEE Standard 1149.1-1990 JTAG and IEEE-ISTO 5001-2003 NEXUS.

VectorCAST’s Unit Test Automation and Structural Code Coverage is data driven, making it the only test automation platform capable of minimizing the on-target memory requirement for all aspects of test case data where cycles of 100k to 1M or more are required.

The impact of this combined capability, VectorCAST and Trace32, affects all of the supported hardware from Microprocessors such as ARM, Imagination-Technologies, MIPS, Freescale/NXP, Fujitsu, Intel and AMD as well as Microcontrollers such as TI (Including Hercules), ST-Micro, DSPs from Analog Devices, CPLDs from Altera, Xilinx, and many more.
