Automated Software Test for single and multi-core embedded systems
- Software debugging, tracing and testing within one single IDE
- Unit, integration and system test
- No code instrumentation
- As close as possible to the real hardware
- Standard version free of charge
February 23, 2015 - iSYSTEM AG today released a new version of iSYSTEM test API and test case editor testIDEA. In 2009, more determined than a simple functional testing tool for software developers, testIDEA today is a comprehensive and flexible tool for the software test of single and multi-core embedded systems.
iSYSTEM’ s Software and Blue Box Technology stand for fast and easy single and multi-core processor hardware access via any kind of debug interface. No matter whether one is developing, debugging or testing embedded software on a real hardware, iSYSTEM’ s solutions work for you.
The new release comes with major improvements in the field of test case generation and test result visualization
- Increased comfort of test case creation - Test Case Generation Wizard
- Graphical representation of test case execution (call graphs, flow charts, UML sequence diagrams)
- Standalone application for both, Windows and Eclipse
- Multi-Core Testing
- Improvement of the test automation API to, e.g. import and/or export Python scripts
"12 years ago iSYSTEM developed hardware debuggers only, with a clear focus on supporting new microcontrollers in time. It all began with the publication of the iSYSTEM Application Programming Interface isystem.connect, an open and public API to remote control the iSYSTEM tools. This very powerful and easy to use interface led to more and more integration of other tools used in the embedded systems product life cycle to iSYSTEM Tools. It also increased the use of iSYSTEM Tool functionality within our customer’s development process as well. Since about seven years, software testing gets more and more popular within the embedded market. One reason is to get control of the increasing complexity of software itself whereas standardization also defines testing as a major requirement for certification. This was the beginning of the iSYSTEM’s test tool era. Today more and more of our customers use the debug and trace tool together with the test API and test editor to perform unit, integration and system testing.", says Erol Simsek, CEO of iSYSTEM.
The standard version of the test interface and test editor testIDEA are free and available on the download section of the website iSYSTEM.com. For the professional use, a license fee applies. The condition is that a Blue Box hardware and iSYSTEM Software is already in use.
