TestC - Mini test system

Use case

LXI unit control and test case validation

In cooperation with Rigol Technologies EU GmbH, Viconnis has launched an innovative test concept for the pre-validation of LXI laboratory equipment. By means of the test software TestC and the Raspberry PI mini test system, selected test sequences can be automated and documented in advance, so that the customer / laboratory user can use his desired test functions in a particularly convenient and reproducible and transferable way through test automation and on the basis of the supplementary test documentation (available later as an application note).

Automated Fault Injection for Total Test Coverage

Together with Razorcat GmbH, Viconnis has developed an innovative test concept with TestC API, Raspberry PI Mini Test System and TESSY 4.1 for software and hardware testing.

Without TestC / Fault Injection, 83.33 % Total Coverage, since the
Return value of the function read_validation_signal() outside the system
and cannot be influenced by TESSY.
