VectorCAST test automation platform for safety-critical RTOS

The VectorCAST test automation platform has been designed by Vector Software for DDC-I’s Deos safety-critical real-time operating system (RTOS) and OpenArbo integrated development environment.

According to the company, the integrated platform greatly reduces the time and cost associated with developing, testing, and certifying DO-178 safety-critical application software.

VectorCAST is a dynamic software test solution that automates C/C++ and Ada unit and integration testing, which is necessary for validating safety- and mission-critical embedded systems. According to the company, VectorCAST automates the creation of stubs and drivers as part of the creation of the test harness which is normally a manual process.

With VectorCAST, unit testing can be done natively or on a specific target or simulator. The VectorCAST Runtime Support Package provides a full-featured integration that allows for the download, execution and results capture using the built-in networking facilities of the Deos RTOS.

Deos is a safety-critical embedded RTOS that has been certified to DO-178 DAL A. Featuring deterministic real-time response, the time- and space- partitioned RTOS employs patented slack scheduling to deliver high CPU utilisation.
