Vector Software Announces Advanced Integration with Lauterbach’s TRACE32® powerful suite of development tools

VectorCAST Test Automation Platform integration with Lauterbach TRACE32 provides practically unlimited volumes of test data from RAM constrained embedded systems.

Vector Software, the world’s leading provider of innovative software solutions for robust embedded software quality, announced today an advanced integration with the Lauterbach TRACE32 product. The leading Test Automation Platform, VectorCAST, now enables development, test, and certification teams, to set and continuously collect, practically unlimited volumes of test data from RAM constrained embedded systems.

This latest integration benefits customers in Aerospace, Defense, Automotive, Medical Devices, Industrial Control, and Commercial environments where software quality and industry compliance are critical.

Vector Software’s development team 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; AMD, Microcontrollers such as TI (Including Hercules); ST-Micro; DSPs from Analog Devices, CPLDs from Altera, Xilinx, and many more.

“We are very excited to see VectorCAST take advantage of our TRACE32 product’s engineered features,” stated Rudolf Dienstbeck, Software Developer at Lauterbach GmbH. “This enhancement significantly improves our customers’ debug capability in the most demanding scenarios.”

“With the Lauterbach TRACE32 and the VectorCAST Test Automation Platform’s newly engineered features, we have been able to add two whole new dimensions to our customers’ embedded systems development arsenal –those of time and space,” said Bill McCaffrey, Chief Operating Officer at Vector Software.
