Today, you will find few technical products without computer control. The interaction of control software with mechanical, hydraulic and electronic components creates a new kind of complexity, which is difficult to master by development engineers.
The size of the code running in typical control units doubles every few years. However, the typical budget spent to test such a controller does not. Therefore, new tools and methods for highly automated system validation are needed. As a rule, the earlier one discovers a bug in the hardware design or control software, the faster and cheaper it can be eliminated.
Based on these insights the idea emerged to provide engineers with tools for early, comprehensive and repeated design validation during the entire design process. The technical foundation for these endeavors are the most advanced simulation technologies combined with methods for automated testing.
The know-how for the practical implementation of these ideas is QTronic's core competence.
