Test & Measurement
Tessy comes with enhanced support of ASAP2
The latest version of Tessy, a tool to automate unit / integration testing of embedded software, now offers an enhanced support of the ASAP2 standard. Tessy can use the standard’s conversion rules to change a (physical) test input value into a binary value which then can be used for the test. On the contrary, Tessy can convert binary test results into physical formats the test engineer is used to. This allows him to work in a familiar way when generating test cases and checking test results.Tess
ASAP2’s full name is ASAM MCD-2 MC. ASAM is standing for the organization (Association for the Standardisation of Automation and Measuring Systems) and MCD for Measurement, Calibration and Diagnosis. It is a standard for the conversion of physical values in their ususal representation (e.g. temperature in °C) and the internal (binary) representation of the value in the memory of a computer. This conversion may not be trivial, i.e. a binary zero does not need to represent 0 °C in any case, but the binary zero may represent for instance -40 °C (and the binary one may represent -39.5 °C). The standard is mostly used in the automotive field, where values from the memory of an electronic control unit (ECU) need to be converted for input and display using external tools, e.g. calibrating tools.
Tessy is distributed by Hitex Development Tools.
