CONTINUOUS, NON-INTRUSIVE REAL-TIME
ANALYSIS OF EMBEDDED SYSTEMS

Accemic Technologies has developed a new dynamic analysis method for embedded systems making software tests more effective and efficient, thereby simplifying the debugging process – especially when hunting non-deterministic failures.

The Challenge

Embedded systems have gained an increasing importance in our lives. The processors therein are getting more efficient and the software more complex. This is accompanied by an ever-increasing effort for software tests. The engineering costs for testing and debugging are approximately 50% of the total engineering costs. Every second engineer is occupied with this topic. The estimated annual amount of worldwide engineering costs is up to 75 billion $. The cost of unplanned project delay and subsequent recall actions must also be considered.

Accemic Technologies’ goal is to reduce these costs with new methods, to improve the quality and reliability of embedded systems, and to accelerate their market launch.

Our Solution

Accemic Technologies has developed a new dynamic analysis method for embedded systems that makes software tests more effective and efficient, simplifying the debugging process – especially hunting for the root cause of non-deterministic failures.

Accemic’s new analysis method builds on embedded trace units implemented nowadays in almost every modern processor. These units make – in principle – the work of the CPU and peripheral units visible to the outside, but produce easily a few GBit/s, rendering storage and offline analysis infeasible. Accemic Technologies has developed a solution, through which this trace-data stream can be analyzed in real time over any desired time frame.

This gives the development and test engineers a powerful tool in their hands, with which they can observe a system for larger time frames and can improve performance like bringing sporadic errors on track.
