When using VectorCAST with VxWorks 653, developers have the option of executing test cases in the both the core OS (kernel mode) or in any of the VxWorks 653 application partitions (user mode). Developers can quickly create test script environments for a wide range of testing demands, and automatically execute these test scripts as required by safety authorities. These test environments can support RTCA DO-178B /
EUROCAE ED-12B Level B through D, and, with Vector Softwares Modified Condition / Decision Coverage (MC/DC) module, Level A. “Vectors integration with the VxWorks 653 Platform further extends the comprehensive design, code, test, and management capabilities of the Wind River Workbench development environment”, states Rob Hoffman, VP and General Manager of Aerospace and Defense at Wind River. “This release enables joint Vector and Wind River customers to leverage the broad range of capabilities built into
the Workbench development environment for the industrys leading ARINC 653 operating system.”
Vector Software has supported the Wind River development environments for over six years and is committed to delivering industry-leading verification tools needed by developers of safety critical avionics software applications. “This integration with the VxWorks 653 Platform underscores Vectors commitment to providing
robust verification tools for leading safety-critical tools and technologies,” notes Bill McCaffrey, Director of Marketing at Vector Software. “Our MC/DC module and DO-178B Qualification Package help speed the test and acceptance of complex safety-critical systems.
