Assuring the Software Quality of nextgen embedded designs

To achieve the software quality assurance that today's challenging embedded systems require involves using every means and tool available, from testing and static analysis to metrics collection and requirements planning.

The role of QA

QA is not supposed to find bugs.

Ten essential elements to guarantee enhanced software quality

Deepti Sharma outlines what she thinks are the ten essential elements in delivering a high quality software design to a customer.

State charts can provide you with software quality insurance

Peter Mueller provides five reasons why embedded developers should know more about statecharts and how that knowledge can be used to ensure software quality.

How to use new unit testing tools & techniques to improve software quality

Long used mainly in high integrity environments, new unit test tools can now also streamline and improve the quality and reliability of mainstream, less critical environments, even those involving undocumented legacy code.

Software engineering metrics we need

Engineering is about numbers; firmware people need to collect metrics.
