Latest integration allows TI customers to leverage the benefit of VectorCAST™ automated testing without leaving the TI IDE

Vector Software, the leading provider of software testing applications for embedded systems, announced today the integration of the VectorCAST product suite with the industry-leading Code Composer Studio™ integrated development environment (IDE) version 5 from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI).

Code Composer Studio is based on the Eclipse open source software framework and runs on the Microsoft® Windows® and Linux® environments. The IDE provides a single user interface to take developers through each step of the application development flow. It includes a suite of tools that simplifies software design for embedded processing applications by accelerating software code development, analysis, and debugging through a common development environment.

“We are pleased to be able to expand our offering within the TI user community. This newest integration helps customers comply with industry requirements while developing within the Code Composer Studio IDE,” commented Bill McCaffrey, Chief Operating Officer at Vector Software. “All testing can be done on production hardware, evaluation boards, or with the built-in Code Composer Studio instruction set simulators. Additionally, tests can be executed under control of the Code Composer Studio debugger in the Eclipse IDE.”

“Vector Software’s VectorCAST product suite is now more integrated with TI’s Code Composer Studio IDE than ever before, offering users an easy and comprehensive approach to dynamic software testing,” said John Stevenson, product and applications manager, Software Development Organization, TI. “With the availability of Code Composer Studio IDE v5, VectorCAST continues to help TI’s customers accelerate time to market and produce software of the highest quality.”

Code Composer Studio is compatible across many devices within TI’s broad embedded processing portfolio, including single and multicore digital signal processors, microcontrollers, video processors, and microprocessors.
