According to LDRA, by providing software testing features such as traceability, verification, and code and quality review, LDRA assists users of the Lauterbach’s Trace32 debugger in automating the software testing process with the LDRA tool suite from code coverage to automating unit testing for the target.
LDRA has said that, to maximize developer flexibility, the LDRA tool suite is compiler agnostic, ensuring that the LDRA-Lauterbach can be used with any tool chain whose target silicon is supported by the Lauterbach debugger.
Extensions to the LDRA tool suite for the Lauterbach debugger enable download of the code under test to the target and providing the mechanism for result capture back to the host. The interface is automatically managed using Lauterbach’s Practice commands created by the LDRA tool suite, easing the learning curve for developers, added LDRA.
Ian Hennell, director of operations of LDRA, said: With our concern for quality software development, we are proud to announce this integration of Trace32 with LDRA Testbed and TBrun analysis tools. Previous integrations have typically focused on code-creation tools -the compiler and linker-rather than the execution phase needed for code coverage analysis and unit test. With the tools from Lauterbach setting the standard in the JTAG and in-circuit emulation debugger world, we offer a best-of-breed solution to a large number of mutual clients.
