PikeTec is specialized in testing and verifying embedded software. PikeTec accompanies software development projects for control units and regulation systems through consulting and development of specialized tools for testing and verification that improve the efficiency of the development process.
Due to this combination of consulting and development/modification of methods and tools, PikeTec is able to react on specific requirements and modifications of a development process in a fast and flexible manner.
The employees at PikeTec have many years of experience on testing and verifying regarding the software development of embedded systems. They are software engineering experts and engineers with know-how in automotive and control technology. PikeTec’s corporate culture is based on the principles of quality, flexibility, competence, reliability and having fun at work.
Andreas Krämer, Dr. Jens Lüdemann, and Dr. Eckard Bringmann founded PikeTec in 2007 in Berlin (Germany) to contribute in the field of test tools with new ideas and better solutions.
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 the company since its first product, the test tool TPT, is as fast and flexible as the mentioned water dweller.
The founders have known each other from the research department of the Daimler AG, where they worked as software developers together in the sector of software technology and tool development for technical control units and regulation systems for about 10 years.
MIL-tests in TPT can be
executed on MATLAB/Simulink,
TargetLink, and ASCET.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
