First Code Coverage Solution for Multi-Core Systems Announced by Rapita Systems
Munich, 25th March 2015
Rapita Systems Ltd, leading provider of on-target verification solutions for critical, real-time embedded systems, is pleased to announce the availability of version 3.3 of Rapita Verification Suite (RVS).This release features a range of enhancements including the first multi-core code coverage solution.
RVS is Rapita Systems' solution for supporting on-target verification for critical, real-time, embedded systems in industries such as avionics and automotive. It features tools to track structural code coverage (RapiCover), measure timing behavior and to predict worst-case execution time (RapiTime), and to track system behavior within real-time operating systems and/or across multiple processor cores.
The latest v3.3 release introduces a range of features with a particular benefit for users performing structural coverage analysis. Multi-core code coverage allows a user to identify which cores executed specific code during testing. RapiCover's extremely low overheads, which already have a big impact in reducing the number of repetitions of tests are reduced to even lower levels with this new version. Effort to certify, which is a major consideration for customers using coverage tools with DO-178C or ISO 26262, is further reduced in RVS 3.3 through several features, such as justifications, which allow non-executed code to be highlighted and explained.
Rapita Systems CEO, Dr Guillem Bernat commented "In RVS 3.3 our aim is to provide the best structural coverage analysis tool for critical embedded systems."
"Measuring code coverage of tests has always played a major part in the verification of critical systems and we are increasingly seeing a demand for on-target code coverage. This puts a strong emphasis on tools that minimize the impact of measuring coverage. RapiCover's industry-
Bernat continued "Looking forward, we see increasing numbers of customers adopting multi-core processors. For some customers it won't be sufficient just to say code ran on one of the cores – instead they will need to know that code ran on a specified sub-set of the cores, but definitely was not executed on others."
RVS 3.3 builds on Rapita's successful track record of bringing verification products to engineers working on critical real-time embedded systems in the avionics and automotive electronics industries.
