In 1993 iSYSTEM’s first development tool was shipped to an automotive embedded control unit (ECU) supplier. Since then lots of automotive software has been developed, debugged, analyzed, tested and deployed using iSYSTEM’s Embedded Software Development Environment (winIDEA/testIDEA) in combination with iSYSTEM Blue Box Debugger and Analyzer Hardware. Companies developing automotive embedded software require sophisticated debug and analyzer functionality, test automation support, professional support services and qualifiable tools for certification purposes. They must fulfill the requirements of functional safety standards such as ISO26262 (Road vehicles – Functional Safety, parent standard is IEC 61508) and have to test as close as possible to the hardware. A flexible and seamless integration and application of such tools in their development and test process is a key requirement.
