[Avionics Magazine 10-11-2016] Embedded systems development company Syncore Technologies has selected the VectorCAST test automation platform to support the DO-178B/C software testing requirements on several Saab flight systems.
Working with defense and security company Saab, Syncore Technologies has developed a number of separate aircraft systems in accordance with DO-178B/C. These systems include flight deck display panels and wing mounted devices that monitor fuel level reserves.
Syncore's development team chose the VectorCAST test automation platform for its ability to test source code, create continuous test environments and comply with FAA and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) software development guidelines. The VectorCAST platform supports the creation and management of test cases to prove that the low-level software requirements have been tested. Additionally, VectorCAST supports the capture and reporting of structural code coverage data at all levels prescribed by DO-178B/C, including Level A.
