For professional embedded software development an efficient possibility for testing during development is essential. This especially applies for hardware-affiliated tests at the interface between system software and board or processor module. A flexible adaptable test automation also supports ongoing serial or release tests throughout the product life cycle.
In case of parallelization of hardware and board support packages development the interaction between a certain hardware revision and the Linux system can be tested with little effort and therefore quite efficiently. These largely person-independent regression tests also allow a fast and reliable comparison of hardware revisions.
Make Automated and Documented Quality Assurance Economically
Especially when the embedded Linux operating system is subject to an external assessment, the developer is dependent on a defined and reproductive test procedure to guarantee a successful certification. To a large extent manual tests will be replaced. Employees will be relieved from routine tasks.
The emlix Test Application Framework (TAF) is a reliable quality assurance tool for embedded Linux board support packages , which meets the requirements of numerous projects. It perfectly suits to the dynamic of agile development and subsequent component optimization. It allows quality assurance parallel to development and production processes based on continuous system, module and integration tests with high test coverage.
