The prevalence of “smart” systems—those relying on software code to deliver a more precisely tailored user experience—continues to increase, as does the pace of change for products ranging from consumer electronics to military aircraft. Both trends are putting pressure on design and test engineers to build systems that can perform automated software testing on evolving products.
Automated software testing, or automated test, is not new. It’s been used for many years to perform quality control on complex software and electronic systems from computer-based user interfaces to mechanical devices like washing machines that rely on sensors and software to perform their functions. Automated test is vital to PC software development, computerchip quality control, and industries including automotive, aerospace, and consumer electronics.
