Software Test Automation for High Quality Software

The VectorCAST embedded software testing platform is a family of products that automates testing activities across the software development lifecycle. For the use in medical engineering, the following products are particularly important.


Automation for C and C++ Unit Testing

Allows you to perform unit testing of individual functions or groups of functions to ensure that your application is meeting its requirements, without error. VectorCAST/C++ provides both pass/fail analysis as well as code coverage analysis to support the testing of any class of medical device.


System Test Automation and Code Coverage

Enables your engineers to assess the thoroughness of system testing by automatically recording which parts of the application are stimulated by each system test. VectorCAST/QA supports statement, branch, and Modified Condition/Decision Coverage (MC/DC) coverage levels. VectorCAST/QA coverage was originally developed for the Avionics industry and now many leading medical devices companies have adopted this as a code coverage standard for their FDA Class III or IEC 62304 Class C applications.
