Time partition testing (TPT), a method for automated software testing or software verification of embedded control systems, supports all important areas of the test process such as test management, test case modelling, test performance, test analysis and test documentation. Now, with the help of Programmierbare Logik & Systeme's (PLS) universal debug engine (UDE), users are now able to run the tests modelled and managed by PikeTec's TPT "Processor-in-the-Loop" (PiL) in real time on the actual target software, for example a control device, for the first time.

Since analysis and documentation also take place within the TPT, it can be used continuously for all test phases without limitations, the company stated.

The UDE provides the necessary functionality such as connection to the target system, FLASH programming, process control and reading and writing programme data etc. via the standard Component Object Model (COM) interface.
