The combination of tools will provide verification, code coverage and traceability for debugging compiled code on embedded applications. Cantata’s testing capabilities can be used with most compilers and any embedded architecture supported by Lauterbach’s TRACE32 Debugger. It will also be possible to use Cantata’s tools with all supported TRACE32 features such as JTAG debuggers and instruction set simulators.
TRACE32 is fully integrated with Cantata’s run process and provides full test result coverage from the target application. The Eclipse UI in the Cantata tool can set coverage levels for instrumenting applications and configure the debugger using Lauterbach’s PRACTICE commands. Cantata allows the easy verification of standard compliant code on embedded target and host native platforms. It is already integrated with an extensive set of embedded development toolchains.
Developers working in Cantata with TRACE32 can build and run instrumented code from the Cantata Eclipse IDE, which will be automatically uploaded in TRACE32, and execution traces collected back from the target memory. Coverage results from the source file will be viewable in the Cantata Coverage Viewer. Tests can also be easily associated with requirements using Cantata’s Trace view.
