An introduction to TESSY and unit testing - 1st June 2016

Unit testing is a huge but vital process when you are working towards certification in one of the many safety-critical standards available today.

TESSY performs automated dynamic module/unit and integration testing of embedded software and determines the code coverage along the way. This kind of test is required for certifications according to standards such as DO-178B, IEC 61508 or ISO 26262. 

This 1-day seminar will introduce the basics of software testing to the while focussing on unit, module and integration testing.

Delegates will learn how these tests can be conducted with TESSY, the basic functionality of TESSY and it will be demonstrated how it can help you achieve the required certification with tested, reliable and bug-free software for your application.
