If your PCB has a micro, your prototype board is the first-time software will be meeting real hardware. Verification of the integration of the software with the micro - and the functional verification of the board as a whole (I/O, comms ports, Bluetooth, for example) - is essential if you are to sign-off on your design and go into production with complete confidence.
Hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing provides that confidence and the good news is that it need not cost a fortune or require specialist skills. A comprehensive HIL test environment can be crafted using benchtop instrumentation. We’ll show you how.
5 THINGS YOU WILL LEARN DURING THIS SESSION:
1. Integration verification challenges
2. Test-Driven Development (TDD)
3. The importance of getting hardware into the loop as soon possible
4. How to create a hardware-in-the-loop test environment using benchtop instruments
5. How to verify the functionality of your prototype PCB using BELIeVE
