Electronic Device Automation Testing (eDAT)

Overview

The plethora of digital devices currently in the market necessitates vigorous testing capabilities, a requirement that cannot be adequately addressed via manual processes. Embedded device testing, for instance, requires extensive resource investments and stringent skills development. Further, regular product revisions lead to significant code coverage reduction, inducing device instabilities.However, implementing automation across monolithic platforms comes with its own share of roadblocks such as insufficient ROI, lack of hardware integration, and incomplete test coverage.

Best practices in device testing must not only automate the process, but also focus on hardware functionalities via a black box approach. This minimizes the level of technical skill required and reduces release cycles. Device testing solutions must cover all standard hardware and communication interfaces, and supplement them with smart devices support.

We offer a personalized approach to device automation testing, enabling ease of adoption with on-demand scalability. Firms can therefore optimize test infrastructure and personnel productivity while reducing defect leakage, by deploying a black box testing model via hardware and software accelerators.

Our eDATTM (Electronic Device Automation Testing) framework allows multi-device testing through one eDATTM setup, reducing efforts and costs by up to 30%.We have facilitated deployment across 8 product lines, as well as 88% test scenario coverage and 66% reduction in testing expenses for our global clients.

Leveraging HCL’s eDATTM a leading online major identified automatable test cases and achieved 90% reduction in test cycle time per regression cycle.
