Our embedded system testing services help fulfill customers’ demand for innovative, higher-performing products while addressing safety-critical issues, time-to-market and cost pressures. Whether a cell phone, PDA, X-Ray Machine, car or an intelligent home theater system embedded software drives most of the functionality in all devices. The following traits of embedded software can make it difficult to test:
- Real time responses
- Separate host (target) systems from development environments
- Lack of standardization in deployment architectures
- Lack of established interfaces to systems under testing
- Stringent Fail-Safe requirements
- Extremely high cost of isolating and fixing defects
Benefits to Clients
- Address end-to-end product quality concerns with experienced professionals, proven methodology and effective tools.
- Shorten the automation ramp-up at much reduced cost of quality.
- Tool and Framework Training reduce regression testing times with automated builds and testing.
Techno Endeavours provides end-to-end testing services for embedded software across a host of target devices, Real Time Operating Systems (RTOS), development platforms and programming languages. Our services include embedded software testing strategy and code-level testing, as well as coverage analysis, functional testing, stress testing, code review, debugging and code maintenance.
We have experience in testing embedded software in the aerospace, defense, digital consumer, industrial/automotive and network infrastructure industries.
