Software debug tool company Lauterbach has announced that it has been working with Vector Software to integrate its Trace32 debug tool with Vector Software's VectorCast test automation platform. The integration of these two advanced toolsets will enable development, test, and certification teams to set and continuously collect practically unlimited volumes of test data from RAM constrained embedded systems.

“We are very excited to see VectorCAST take advantage of our TRACE32 product’s engineered features,” stated Rudolf Dienstbeck, Software Developer at Lauterbach GmbH. “This enhancement significantly improves our customers’ debug capability in the most demanding scenarios.”

This latest integration will benefit customers in Aerospace, Defence, Automotive, Medical Devices, Industrial Control, and Commercial environments, where software quality and industry compliance are critical. Vector Software’s development team worked closely with Lauterbach and the TRACE32 implementation of IEEE Standard 1149.1-1990 JTAG and IEEE-ISTO 5001-2003 NEXUS.

The impact of this combined capability, VectorCAST and TRACE32, affects all of the supported hardware from Microprocessors such as ARM; Imagination-Technologies MIPS; Freescale/NXP; Fujitsu; Intel; AMD, Microcontrollers such as TI (Including Hercules); ST-Micro; DSPs from Analog Devices, CPLDs from Altera, Xilinx, and many more.

Lauterbach will be exhibiting at the UK Device Developers’ Conference taking place in Warrington and Uphall (Scotland) on the 2nd and 4th June.
