In order to meet IEC 62304 software development requirements and shorten development time on their GALILEOS 3D Digital Imaging Systems, Sirona Dental needed a tool that allowed developers to automate much of the key activities associated with the testing of its embedded software.
After an exhaustive assessment where a number of potential software tools were evaluated, Sirona selected VectorCAST. Their selection was based on very specific criteria which included the vendor's experience in safety-critical embedded software testing and the ease in which the solution could be integrated into Sirona's IEC 62304 development process.
Serving dealers and dentists worldwide for over 130 years, Sirona is the world leader in digital dentistry and dental technology. Sirona develops, manufactures, and markets a complete line of dental products including, CAD/CAM restoration systems (CEREC), digital intra-oral, panoramic and 3D imaging systems, dental treatment centers, and hand-pieces. Sirona products represent the cutting-edge of modern dental treatment, research, and development. The VectorCAST tools allow for simple test case construction and the complete generation of test code including stubs and drivers. With VectorCAST/Manage, Sirona developers can now automate daily regression testing and easily manage test campaigns across multiple test environments.
