What Is VeriStand?

Monitor showing HIL testing of motor simulation. Two graphs display the data acquisition of the mechanical model and electrical model.

VeriStand software validates hardware and performs embedded software test for hardware-in-the-loop applications. Accelerate the product development lifecycle with model integration, real-time stimulus generation, and an extensible software environment.

Product Features

Accelerate Embedded Software Testing

Monitor displaying interactive  controls, a graph, and manual operation instructions. Below operator instructions is a startup sequence for real time test automation and section for adjusting test settings.

VeriStand provides a user interface to simplify I/O channel configuration, data logging, and stimuli generation. Gain full sight of your HIL system with graphical elements that allow you to control configurations and display runtime results.

  • Import simulation models and control algorithms
  • Configure alarms and respond to events
  • Automate tests with ASAM XIL, TestStand, .NET, and other software
  • Add custom functionality with LabVIEW, C/C++, Python, and more
