Mx-Suite automates Back-to-Back Testing from Simulation Models to On-Target Code

February 23, 2018 ECD Staff

Mx-Suite, Danlaw's embedded systems test platform, now offers a back-to-back testing solution between MathWorks Simulink models and Lauterbach TRACE32 emulators. By using the same test tool and the same test cases in both environments, equivalence between the model and its generated C code is easily demonstrated, eliminating the effort of creating a second suite of tests for the target environment. Further, the effort in achieving ISO 26262 compliance is noticeably reduced:

-By comprehensively testing the generated code, the need to qualify the code generator for ISO 26262 is eliminated.
-According to the ISO 26262-6 Road Vehicle – Functional Safety specification "the test environment for the software unit testing shall correspond as closely as possible to the target environment." Through back-to-back testing, the effort devoted to testing on the target is virtually eliminated.
-ISO 26262-6 recommends performing code coverage measurements. Mx-Suite leverages Danlaw's RapiCover code coverage tool to transparently automate the capture of MC/DC code coverage statistics, while tests are executing on the TRACE32 emulation target platform.

Teaming up with the world's largest In-circuit Emulator (ICE) company, Lauterbach, provides Mx-Suite customers with the best solution to streamline their ISO 26262 compliance.

Join us for a demo of this solution at Embedded World 2018, Hall 4, Stand 4-157, February 27 - March 1, in Nuremberg, Germany.
