New information emerged that Tesla is creating a new energy model named “Megapack” which was to be built in Gigafactory 1. A Tesla internship applicant posted about the position and having to do embedded testing with the new Megapack application.
While we knew about “Powerpack,” “Megapack” is a new product name made by Tesla. During the first half of 2018, Jeff Johnson, ex-Senior Program Manager in Tesla, previously worked on a project called “Megapack New Energy Module” based on his LinkedIn profile.
He stated that he “planned, built, and schedule prototype builds to be used in Megapack.” Previously, Johnson had worked with Tesla battery modules with around 2170 battery cells created in Gigafactory 1.
And we’ll show you exactly why embedded testing is a favored choice amongst development teams. Keep reading to decide if its the right testing method for you and your IT team.
What is Embedded Software Testing?
Embedded software testing is an embedded system to help with app deployment. Embedded testing checks the software’s performance, validity, and consistency as requested by the client working with the software development team.
Embedded testing checks can ensure that the application software complies with the client’s requirements and is of good quality. This method is an effective approach to guarantee security in important applications such as railways, aviation, medical equipment, etc. Careful and strict testing is important for good app development.
Embedded Software Types
When used correctly, these testing methods will help improve the quality of the app’s final deployment.
Software Unit Testing
This unit is either a class or a function. Unit Testing is made by the development team and is created using a peer-review model. Test cases are developed based on the specification of the module.
Integration testing is divided into two parts
1. Software integration testing
2. Software and hardware integration testing
In the end, the interaction of the software and domain components are tested. This helps with examining the entire interaction between the built-in software and peripheral devices.
System Integration Testing
The module that needs to be tested begins with a group of components in a single node. Points of Control and Observations are a mixture of network related RTOs and communication protocols, such as RTOs events and network messages.
Why Embedded Testing?
Before you start creating tests, you need to have a clear understanding of why you’re testing. This helps you decide what aspects to test, and how early in the project you should start testing. In general, embedded testing should follow the four main concepts:
- To find bugs in your software (testing is the only way to do this).
- Improving performance
- To reduce maintenance and development costs
- To reduce the risk for the company and the users
Conclusively, using embedded testing is a great way to get your app deployed correctly. Through a series of testing protocols, you’ll find it easier to spot out issues before deployment. Once your IT team starts to use this method, you won’t have issues getting your apps deployed on time!
