Saving time and money on testing embedded hardware

Putting design and production tests in their place Recent high-profile product recalls and failures have shown that even the most experienced and well-funded company can suffer from the limitations of product testing when testing embedded hardware. A product goes through two fundamental types of test. The first is of the design itself and the second is production testing of a product. These two categories have different aims and this article sets out to explore the differences. Increasing pressure on timescales and the relentless pace of new technology introductions can pressurise companies to reduce design testing to a minimum. Conversely, production testing can be over-engineered to no great effect, resulting in increased production costs and a false sense of security, with testing of a design carried out in production, rather [...]

New Electronics: Embedded software testing is as important as hardware test

Embedded software testing is a discipline that is both easier and more efficient if it can be conducted concurrently with software development, and preferably with the hardware. The extent to which this can be done varies. For example, ByteSnap, a design consultancy specialising in embedded system development, can be presented with projects at the concept level and so the complete design flow – hardware and software – is in its hands.
