VectorCAST embedded software testing for UK organizations

Vector Software has invested over 15 years in a technology that exists to help developers create more reliable safety and business critical embedded software. More than 600 of the world’s largest companies have used our VectorCAST product suite to automate developer focused dynamic testing, including those with regulatory requirements in: military and aerospace, medical technology, automotive, industrial controls, railway, and business critical applications.

In short, partnering with Vector Software will ensure having access to our embedded platform expertise coupled with an easy-to-use and highly cost-efficient test suite that will turn your simulator based or on-target software testing into a fast, automated, and repeatable process.

Industry leading companies that have included VectorCAST in their development process include: Aero Systems, BAE Systems, Bombardier, Goodrich, InvensysRolls Royce, Thales, TRW, Valeo, and hundreds more.

The VectorCAST product suite automates dynamic testing activities across the software development lifecycle and supports C, C++, and Ada.

Unit and Integration Testing

VectorCAST/C++ and VectorCAST/Ada automates the process of testing source modules written in C/C++ or Ada. They automate both unit testing and integration testing.

Regression Test Management

VectorCAST/Manage allows you to import previously developed VectorCAST/C++ and VectorCAST/Ada test environments into regression test suites, providing a single point-of-control for all unit and integration test activities.

Code Coverage

VectorCAST/Cover performs code-coverage analysis during functional or system test. It can share coverage data with VectorCAST/C++ and VectorCAST/Ada.

VectorCAST/MCDC provides two levels of verification for conditional expressions. VectorCAST/MCDC can automatically generate MC/DC test cases to help achieve 100% pair coverage.

Layered Products

VectorCAST/RSP is a Runtime Support Package that serves as an extension to VectorCAST/C++ and VectorCAST/Ada. It allows you to execute test cases for real-time applications in an embedded-target or simulator environment.

VectorCAST/RGW permits the flow of data between a requirements management tool and the VectorCAST testing tool. Through a simple and intuitive interface, developers can quickly link requirements to VectorCAST test cases. After test execution, the status can be returned to the requirements management tool.

VectorCAST/Lint is a static source code analyzer that performs module based or whole-program source code analysis on C/C++ codebases and automatically identifies problems at their source, prior to compiling.

VectorCAST Certification Kits expedite validation and certification of aerospace development under DO-178B, rail application development under EN 50126, industrial and automotive development under IEC 61508 and ISO 26262, and compliance for medical devices under FDA and IEC 62304.

Tool Integrations

Vector Software collaborates with industry leading technology providers to develop integrations that extend the breadth and depth of the VectorCAST platform. VectorCAST integrates with software tools for Configuration ManagementSoftware Modeling,Requirements Management, and Static Analysis.

Compilers and Debuggers

VectorCAST supports a wide range of industry-standard C, C++, and Ada compilers and debuggers.

Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOSes)

VectorCAST is designed to support any commercial-quality off-the-shelf real-time operating system (RTOS).

From flight navigation systems to medical devices, Vector Software is the trusted platform for leading companies that develop safety and business critical embedded software applications. Learn how VectorCAST has helped hundreds of organizations solve complex software quality problems and deliver high quality and reliable software.
