Tessy is a tool, that automates module/unit testing of embedded software written in various embedded dialects of the C/C++ programming language.[1] Tessy can be used to get the certification for product according to standards like IEC 61508, EN 50128/50129, DO-178B, Automotive SPiCE, or the General Principles of Software Validation by the FDA.

Tessy is developed by Razorcat Development. Hitex Development Tools is the international sales partner.

Key Features

Automated test execution
Test report generation
Code coverage without extra effort
Regression and integration testing
Essential to get certifications
For geographically distributed projects
Testing on host or actual hardware
Supports C and C++

Characteristics

Tessy automatically executes tests, evaluates the test results, and generates the test reports. This makes Tessy suitable for regression testing. Tessy includes the Classification Tree Editor CTE, a tool to support the Classification Tree Method for Test Case Specification. Tessy supports test documentation in various formats, e.g. HTML, Word, Excel.

Origin

Both Tessy and the CTE originate from the former software technology laboratory of Daimler-Benz in Berlin, Germany.[2]
