Hardware Verification

Hardware Verification is the process of checking that a given design correctly implements the specification. It is recoginsed as the largest task in silicon development and as such has the biggest impact on the key business drivers of quality, schedule and cost.

 

The T&VS hardware verification solution asureVERIF is based on the T&VS hardware verification strategy.

 

  • Flexible resources proficient in verification methodologies and tools.
  • Products: asureVIP for Verification IP and asureSIGN for Requirements.
  • Consultancy to deploy the T&VS Verification or continuous improvements through Benchmarking.
  • Training on the T&VS strategy and the latest verification methodologies.

Software Testing

Software Testing is a process that aims to find bugs in programs whilst also adding confidence that the program performs as intended. Developing an effective, efficient in-house testing capability is time consuming, expensive and subject to numerous changes without guaranteeing added-value to the organisation.

Using an external testing agency can demonstrably improve software quality and your organisation’s reputation.  T&VS can provide a cost-effective solution, by augmenting an existing team, providing a totally outsourced offshore or local team, or a hybrid of both approaches with key personnel local and a remote test team.

The T&VS asureTEST services help you to establish a cost-effective software testing facility that delivers improved quality and reduced time-to market.  Rather than diverting your in-house development team to testing duties, T&VS can provide experienced, qualified testers that will fit most budgets.  T&VS can also augment your internal test team during peak usage through our own fully qualified testers who can start work from day 1 with little or no ramp, or alternatively leverage our crowdsourced testing service.

The T&VS software testing teams are proficient in the latest testing methodologies and test automation tools, as well as the latest development methodologies such as Agile, Waterfall, and V-model and have in-depth expertise working on a diverse range of software testing projects, including:

  • Application Testing
  • Embedded and IoT Software Testing
  • Mobile Application Testing
  • Web Application Testing

Security

Conventional security investments concentrate on perimeter defences such as Firewalls, Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems, but this network-biased approach is now vulnerable as malicious attackers target the applications and can outwit and breach perimeter defences. This means the security battle can be lost if applications are not designed, coded, and tested to defend themselves.

The asureSECURE application security testing services bridge the crucial security gap between perimeter defences and penetration testing, with our deep defence approach resulting in self-protecting applications that deny access to attackers when the network boundary is breached.

  • Context-based Security Coaching of project teams
  • Permanently relocates security knowledge from expert silos to project teams
  • Bridges the gap between perimeter defences and undirected Penetration Testing
  • Replaces ‘Passive’ testing with ‘Assertive’ testing techniques

Safety

A number of industry sectors are governed by safety standards including avionics, rail, nuclear and more recently, medical, automotive and autonomous systems. A key process in any safety-related project is verification and the ability to demonstrate that a development processes complies with the objectives and outputs defined in the applicable standard. Defining and executing an effective verification plan can have a significant impact on the quality, schedule and cost of a project and greatly reduce the burden of demonstrating compliance.

As your independent verification experts, T&VS has a wealth of experience available to help organisations comply with the required safety standards.

Verification IP

asureVIP™ is a highly flexible and configurable verification portfolio which can be easily integrated into any complex digital SoC verification environment. Written natively in System Verilog or the e language for optimum performance, all of our VIP components are OVM/UVM or eRM compliant and can be provided as source code under our Flexible Licensing Model.

See http://www.testandverification.com/solutions/vip/ for details

To help our customers evaluate the quality of the T&VS VIP solutions, we are pleased to make some unit-level code samples and documentation available as a VIP Evaluation Package

 

The standard asureVIP portfolio covers five major verticals and T&VS is also able to undertake bespoke VIP development:
