Danlaw Mx-Suite™ Integrates With RapiCover To Support ISO-26262 Software Verification

-- Mx-Suite™ Embedded Software Test Environment Supports MC/DC Code Coverage

NOVI, Michigan, Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Danlaw, Inc., a global provider of automotive embedded engineering solutions, announces integration of their Mx-Suite test tool and Rapita System's tool RapiCover.  This allows full structural coverage for embedded software intended for ASIL-C and ASIL-D conformance to ISO-26262 specifications.

Danlaw's Mx-Suite™ is an industry-proven software tool for verification and validation (V&V) that runs on Microsoft Windows®. It is used to streamline testing of simulation models, software code (developer-written or auto-generated), and embedded software in vehicle electronics, such as powertrain, body electronics, active/passive safety, infotainment, and other embedded systems. Mx-Suite now provides a RapiCover toolbar which allows developers and testers to enable/disable MC/DC structural coverage and aggregate coverage between test runs.

"Integrating Mx-Suite and RapiCover combines two best in class tools to create a solution for that hardest part of ISO-26262 qualification," said Chris Domin, Business Development Manager of Danlaw.  "With today's autonomous safety requirements, you need clear evidence of full MC/DC coverage for ASIL-D applications.  This fundamentally increases the burden of automotive suppliers to broaden testing coverage beyond what was considered acceptable in the past."

The offering allows users to rapidly create requirements-based test cases, execute them early in development, and determine structural coverage right down to the MC/DC level.  Test cases can be easily rerun after the code is flashed into an ECU.   It improves the whole ISO-26262 qualification effort by shrinking test intervals, reducing costs, and automatically providing documented qualification evidence gathered during functional compliance testing and/or robustness/performance tests.

"We are very excited to have RapiCover tightly integrated with Mx-Suite," said Dr. Guillem Bernat, CEO of Rapita Systems. "This combines two industry leading tools that will enable software engineers to test their code and produce all structural code coverage reports to meet  ISO26262, including MC/DC as part of their standard testing process with no additional effort.  With this combined solution, we feel we are taking the next logical step in serving the V&V needs of our customers."
