Embedded software is making devices smarter, more reliable, and more in line with market demands. However, adding software means putting quality at risk. Often, issues remain hidden until production, resulting in costly and sometimes devastating effects. HIL is a proven methodology that is quickly becoming the standard of embedded software test. With support from NI, you can test the limits of software designs with confidence and rest assured that the final product will meet all requirements—on time—by connecting real I/O to simulated use cases.
NI’s solution for HIL test is open and flexible, providing an easy-to-use platform for keeping up with change requests. As test requirements evolve, NI’s modular hardware adapts to I/O and signal conditioning changes. Models created using MathWorks Simulink® software or other environments can be integrated with NI’s software for HIL test and a broad range of I/O, producing a powerful system uniquely suited to your application.
