S2 makes key ‘strides’ in embedded software verification platform

San Jose, Calif.—S2 Technologies released version 2.1 of its STRIDE embedded software verification platform with several key upgrades.

STRIDE 2.1 now includes support for controlling and automating C/C++ test code on the target, a new wizard to automatically generate test scripts and an enhanced user interface for capturing and qualifying application programming interfaces (API) to expedite deployment by developers.

“STRIDE remains the only integrated solution for accelerating testing and verification of software on embedded devices,” said Mark Underseth, chief executive of S2 Technologies. “STRIDE 2.1 incorporates features that will make it easier and faster for development teams to gain visibility into their software health and increase predictability of releases, thereby enabling engineering organizations to more effectively manage software complexity.”

STRIDE 2.1 incorporates features that result in effective large-scale use of the verification platform during complex development projects. STRIDE allows developers to quickly write target-resident test applications in C/C++ while providing remote control and aggregating both test results and reporting on the host. By leveraging the virtual host-target environment created by STRIDE, this capability provides developers with the flexibility to seamlessly create tests that execute on the host and/or the target platform, depending on testing objectives and requirements.

The STRIDE 2.1 Script Wizard automatically generates test scripts on the host that either remotely exercise and verify code on the target or automate and control test code executing on the target. Developers can easily create various templates for different types of testing and then select one template to auto-generate test scripts for a set of application interfaces. The STRIDE Script Wizard not only accelerates test-case development but also helps ensure uniformity and reusability of tests.

STRIDE's API capture-and-qualification user interface permits developers to quickly select and accurately characterize the application interfaces involved in testing. In addition, this feature set enables developers to clarify API ambiguities in pointers, unions and other complex data structures. It allows STRIDE to properly marshal and represent data across host and target platforms, making testing and verification easier and more reliable.

Pricing: Starting at $8,300; current STRIDE licensees will receive STRIDE 2.1 as a no-cost upgrade.
Availability: June 2007.
