National Instruments has released the Tool Qualification Kit for NI TestStand that according to the company helps meet functional safety standards such as RTCA DO-178B/C, IEC 62304 and ISO 26262. The kit, developed by CertTech LLC, defines the functional requirements NI TestStand meets, creates a set of tests to demonstrate compliance with the requirements and provides extensive documentation, added the company.

An FAA representative formally reviewed the kit to verify compliance with the DO-178B/C guidelines and concluded: "Findings in the FAA Designated Engineering Representative's (DER) report confirmed that all objectives of DO-178B Section 12.2, FAA Order 8110.49 Section 9, and DO-330 Annex A have been successfully achieved and in many cases exceeded."

Rather than developing and maintaining a custom test executive, engineers can use NI TestStand, a ready-to-run COTS test management software solution, to quickly develop automated test and validation systems. The Tool Qualification Kit for NI TestStand, available on the LabVIEW Tools Network, claims to significantly cut the time it takes to certify each project by introducing a testing methodology that allows engineers to use qualified COTS tools instead of performing a manual qualification on custom tools.
