Friday is that last day to get the Early Bird price for the Embedded Systems Conference scheduled for October 28-30 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston. There are a lot of great sessions on embedded software development including a track on Debugging, Verification, and Test that will be anchored by my presentation on CDV for embedded software.
Hope to see you there!
[ESC-463] Coverage Driven Verification for Embedded SoftwareSpeaker: Jason Andrews (Cadence Design Systems)Date/Time: Wednesday (October 29, 2008) 4:15pm — 5:45pmLocation (room): 204Submission Proposal History: NewFormats: 90-Minute ClassKey TakeawaysAttendees will discover how constrained random test generation, checking, and functional coverage provide new confidence as well as expose bugs that are not commonly found using traditional directed testing approaches.Audience level: IntermediatePrerequisitesAttendees should be familiar with C programming, methods use to test C code, as well as common test planning and execution methodologies.Presentation AbstractThis class uses actual examples of embedded software to describe and discuss the verification technique of coverage driven verification (CDV). The process of planning, regression management, test creation, constrained random generation, checking, and functional coverage for software will be described using examples of embedded software. Topics such as how to define metrics to demonstrate software quality and how to measure such metrics are included. CDV is also compared to other traditional testing techniques.Track: Debugging, Verification & Test
