C/C++ Unit Test Tool for Safety Critical Software
Cantata is a dynamic testing tool for unit and integration testing C and C++, and helps accelerate compliance with the standard’s dynamic testing requirements.
Key automation benefits:
With the Cantata flexible toolset you can choose which combination of automated testing capabilities are right to drive your unit tests, integration tests or to enhance your higher-level tests.
Which software safety standards require software unit/integration testing?
International software safety standards require evidence of low level (unit and integration) testing to obtain certification for the device software.
Cantata is a unit test tool for embedded C/C++ software, certified by SGS-TÜV SAAR as suitable for use at the highest Safety Integrity Levels of all these standards:
Cantata provides all capabilities required for embedded software testing standards compliance, including: unit testing, integration testing, code coverage, execution on host or target hardware environments, and automated regression testing for integration with DevOps and CI/CD workflows.
"Module testing early during development is becoming more important due to the increasing complexity of software. In practice Cantata has proved successful and increased unit testing efficiency. Cantata from QA Systems offers an ideal solution for the creation and execution of unit and integration tests, including coverage analysis."
