Thumbs up to Test Coverage tool
"LSI has integrated Semantic Designs' Test Coverage tool into its special firmware build to measure effectiveness of its internal testing. Fantastic support from Sematic Designs and the simplicity of the tool ensured we were able to integrate the tool in our process in just couple of days. Great thing about this tool is, IT JUST WORKS as expected and as advertised. We are already seeing measurable benefits of using the tool. Today, we have quantifiable data to assess our testing methodologies and track the improvements."
CloneDR saves $50,000 / year for Java shop
Using SD's CloneDR, Salion, Inc eliminates redundant code, improves quality, and saves big money.
Automated Transformation Success Story
Fully automated JOVIAL to C transformation of the B-2 Spirit Bomber Flight Program.
Highly Automated Conversion of Realtime UAV Flight Avionics
Using DMS, SD produced a highly automated conversion tool that converted legacy Boeing Bold Stroke components into CORBA/RT compatible components, replacing legacy OS calls with equivalent CORBA/RT calls, and automatically rearchitecting the components to provide CORBA compliant interface facades. The goal was to increase the internal bandwidth in order to accommodate realtime video. The rearchitected and upgraded software was installed in a Boeing UAV and participated in a live fire demonstration.
