LHP Engineering Solutions proudly presents a new addition to our product offering: the LHP HIL Test Platform (LHP/HTP). LHP/HTP was launched at the Engine Expo this week at booth E100 in Novi, MI. LHP/HTP provides a reconfigurable platform for Hardware-in-the-Loop testing from a single product to an entire product line. LHP has designed a three-tier test environment architecture approach which consists of a hardware-in-the-loop manual testing architectural model, an automated test architectural model, and reconfigurable automated test architectural model. Selectable options extend each architecture tier to further tailor the system to meet the requirements based upon blocks that each build up to the next tier. Thus, the LHP/HTP can be made extensible and grow according to customer needs. LHP can provide a basic open loop system, a closed loop automated system, a complete data-driven total test automation system with traceability to requirements, as well as variations to those architectural

LHP is releasing a new product into our model-based design and test workflow at the Automotive Testing Expo in Novi, MI on 10/20. The LHP Hardware-in-the-Loop Test Platform (LHP/HTP) supports verification and validation of embedded systems development. This is the third blog in a three-part interview series that highlights the new LHP/HTP (Click here for part one and here for part two). Our final interview in the series is with Jamie Williams. Jamie is the Verification Application Consultant for LHP Engineering Solutions and a member of the Platform Group. Jamie Williams Interview Brianna: What is the purpose of the LHP Hardware-in-the-Loop Testing Platform (LHP/HTP) test software? Jamie: The LHP/HTP is an integrated system for the testing of embedded control software. HIL test environments provide a real world product simulation environment that incorporates models that interact directly with the electronic control module (ECM). In the automotive world, the models simulate

Later this month, LHP is releasing a new product into our model-based design and test workflow at the Automotive Testing Expo in Novi, MI. The LHP Hardware-in-the-Loop Test Platform (LHP/HTP) supports verification and validation of embedded systems development. This is the second blog in a three-part interview series that highlights the new LHP/HTP (If you missed part one, click here). Howard Moore is a Hardware Engineering Manager at LHP Engineering Solutions, and supports hardware product development and technical sales. In this interview, hell provide details on the hardware specifications for the LHP/HTP. Howard Moore Interview Brianna: What is the purpose of the LHP Hardware-in-the-Loop Testing Platform (LHP/HTP) hardware architecture? Howard: The hardware architecture provides a flexible IO and load interface for the target device under test (DUT). IO lines can be scaled and isolated from the base NI system to provide flexible test and measurement capability without the

Requirements are the Foundation of Test Processes

Category • Requirements, Testing

Building quality into a product mandates extensive testing throughout the product development process. Testing starts with Customer Needs and product conception and continues through the development process to the manufacturing floor. If Customer Need translations misinterpret the initial voice of the customer, then the delivered product will fail acceptance testing and validation. Product quality requires testing early and testing often inclusive of requirement translations. Testing requires cycles of requirement analysis, test strategy development, test design, test case development, test execution, results reporting, defect management, traceability, and best practices to be incorporated into the concept, design, optimization, and manufacturing phases of product development. Requirements are to product development as arrows are to archery. Well written requirements provide the developer the tools to create the desired product and hit product goals. Building quality into requirements
