Black Box Verification Testing: CertSAFE™ and CertBENCH™
CERTON, a Cyient company, has developed tools (CertSAFE™ and CertBENCH™) and processes to support a unique business model that supports complete test automation. These tools are designed to give your company a competitive advantage in Validation & Verification testing within your project’s life-cycle. Verification and Validation activities are very time consuming and CERTON uses CertSAFE™ in combination with CertBENCH™ LRU for fully automated testing environments.
CertSAFE™ allows engineers to develop test vectors with CERTON patented technology to streamline the verification, simulation, and debugging processes. Standardized Test Cases and Procedures are automatically generated and compatible with CertBENCH™ LRU and PLD for automated Black Box verification testing.
CertSAFE™ is also a fully-featured test executive which allows for complete automation of tests across a variety of platforms including CertBENCH™ LRU and CertBENCH™ PLD, TestStand, GreenHills IDE, Rational Test RealTime (CertSAFE™ AutoPTU), VectorCAST (CertSAFE™ AutoTST), and other COTS verification test products.
CertBENCH™ LRU is a mixed-signal real-world environment simulator that allows real-time high-level black box testing of avionics and other safety-critical products, such as medical devices and rail control systems. It is capable of generating and recording a wide variety of analog and digital waveforms including ARINC 429, CMOS/TTL digital I/O, analog I/O and high-speed serial.
Unlike other simulators, CertBENCH™ LRU is entirely black-box, and when used in conjunction with CertSAFE™, LRU is capable of full software test coverage with absolutely no flight object code modification, which is necessary for compliance with the certification objectives for safety-critical software verification under DO-178C.
National Instruments LabVIEW and TestStand
CERTON is a National Instruments (NI) Alliance Partner with certified LabVIEW developers on staff. We work closely with NI to utilize their tools and technology to develop automated test solutions for Aerospace, Medical, and Rail transportation customers.
CertSAFE™ AutoGHS is used to automatically execute script files within the GreenHills MULTI debugger environment running unmodified object code on the actual target hardware.
CertSAFE™ AutoPTU is used to automatically generate executable *.ptu script files for execution withi
