The founders of the company
We - Andreas Krämer, Dr. Jens Lüdemann, and Dr. Eckard Bringmann - founded PikeTec in 2007 in Berlin (Germany). The name is a compound of the English words “pike”, meaning the fish (esox lucius), and “technology”. The extremely fast and flexible freshwater fish lent his name to our company since our first product, the test tool TPT, is as fast and flexible as the mentioned water dweller. We have known each other from the research department of the Daimler AG, where we worked as software developer together in the sector of software technology and tool development for technical control units and regulation systems for about 10 years.
We founded PikeTec to contribute in the field of test tools with new ideas and better solutions.
We want to continuously improve the quality and efficiency of software development of technical systems,
especially control units and regulation systems.
Partners of PikeTec
ASAM coordinates the development of technical standards for protocols, data models, file formats, and APIs concerning the development and test of vehicular electrical systems. TPT supports the ASAM standard ASAM MCD-3 MC.
dSPACE produces the code generation tool TargetLink that automatically generates production code directly from Simulink models. TPT can test TargetLink models in MiL, SiL, and PiL.
MathWorks provides with MATLAB/Simulink and Simulink Realtime a modeling and production code generating tool as well as a real-time capable HiL technology.
TPT by PikeTec can run tests in Simulink and on HiL.
Verifysoft produces a special software for testing and analyzing software projects. Verifysoft markets the product Testwell CTC++ to measure the code coverage of C-code tests. TPT can be connected to Testwell CTC++ in order to measure the code coverage of C-code with TPT.
PLS offers special solutions for the PiL test with its software UDE. You can run TPT tests on several PiL boards via UDE.
Using the FUSION platform by PikeTec, tests can be run on hardware virtualized with
software by Synopsys.
ETAS offers development tools for the automotive industry. TPT is closely tied to ETAS tools like INCA, ASCET, and LABCAR. With TPT you can test ASCET models as well as testing via INCA and LABCAR.
