The company has of course supplied...

Excuse me flight attendant, does this Boeing 787 use ‘on-chip debugging’?

Testing

Application testing company Coverity has teamed with embedded and mobile software player Wind River this week. Now the problem here (allegedly, arguably etc.) is that embedded software application development can come across as a little dull at first, but stay with me -- this is the sort of stuff...

content, Data analysis
