Solutions for Medical Engineering

Create embedded systems in medical engineering.

In medical technology, electronics improve medical care and help save lives. Whether patient monitors, infusion pumps, pacemakers or defibrillators: modern devices can no longer do without embedded software.

Nevertheless, they must behave correctly and consistently, all the more so when they are networked together. This makes their development process more complex and leads to additional regulatory requirements through standards such as IEC 62304 or FDA.

EVENT HIGHLIGHT

Ward Rounds With Vector | Medical Engineering Solutions

Accelerated development and simplified testing of medical electronics: In compact "Ward Rounds with Vector" online sessions, we present development and testing solutions for software-based systems in medical engineering.

Model-Based Systems Engineering

The development of medical embedded systems is strongly regulated, processes must comply with regulatory requirements from standards as IEC 62304 and ISO 14971. A profound documentation of the requirements and the respective system/software architecture as well as their relations are important preconditions for successful regulatory audits. To keep this complexity manageable, modelbased processes in systems engineering are on the rise.

Vector Testing Solution for Embedded Systems

System Testing

Regardless of your task in the development process the Vector system testing tools provide a scalable and re-usable solution from pure SIL simulations to HIL testing with functional acceptance tests. No matter whether your microcontroller is part of an MRI scanner or an infusion pump.

Due to the parallel access to Networks (CAN/CANopen, Ethernet, Wifi, …) as well as by acquiring and stimulating of I/Os (analog, digital, SPI, I2C, PSI5, SENT, …) via DAQ and external hardware you can easily realize development accompanying tests. Therefore, you ensure a process conformant development of the embedded medical system functionality and network communication.

SUPPORTED TESTING ACTIVITIES

  • Black box testing
  • White box testing on host and target
  • Full support in the development process, from software unit test to system validation
  • Uniform test management, test automation (continuous integration), result analysis and traceability
  • Measuring of code coverage of system tests
  • Efficient test design by reuse of test sequences and test data (e.g. for variant handling)

Software Testing

Software testing is a critical part of ensuring the performance of medical devices to pass FDA audits and support the guidelines defined in IEC 62304.

VectorCAST by Vector is the solution for FDA-compliant and IEC 62304-compliant medical embedded application testing.

Qualification documents consisting of Tool Operational Requirements (TOR) and Tool Qualification Data (TQD) are available for tool validation. VectorCAST supports testing activities such as:

  • Unit testing and integration testing
  • Code coverage analysis
  • Continuous integration with Change-Based-Testing
  • Embedded target support

Allows you to perform unit testing of individual functions or groups of functions to ensure that your application is meeting its requirements, without error. VectorCAST/C++ provides both pass/fail analysis as well as code coverage analysis to support the testing of any class of medical device.

VectorCAST/QA 

System test automation and code coverage

Enables your engineers to assess the thoroughness of system testing by automatically recording which parts of the application are stimulated by each system test. VectorCAST/QA supports statement, branch and Modified Condition/Decision Coverage (MC/DC) coverage levels. VectorCAST/QA coverage was originally developed for the Avionics industry and now many leading medical devices companies have adopted this as a code coverage standard for their FDA Class III or IEC 62304 Class C applications.

CANoe is the comprehensive software tool for development, test and analysis of individual microcontrollers and networks of connected microcontrollers. It supports network designers, development and test engineers throughout the entire development process – from planning to system-level test.

vTESTstudio

Comfortable design of automated test sequences for embedded systems

vTESTstudio is a powerful development environment for creating automated tests. In order to increase the efficiency in terms of test design and to simplify the reusability it provides either programming-based, table-based and graphical test notations and test development methods.

VT System

Modular test hardware

To test programmable electronic medical devices thoroughly, it is not only necessary to connect the communication networks to the test system, it is also necessary to connect the I/O interfaces. This task is handled by the Vector VT System. It simplifies the setup of test benches and HIL test systems immensely, because it integrates all circuit components needed to connect an I/O channel in one module.

Application Development

Speed Up the Process With XCP

Typical process flow when developing applications for embedded systems.

Besides code generation, parameterizing the application to a specific embedded system is an extensive task.

Parameters are changed, for example, to set the system to a certain state, to simulate a switching state or to change the behavior of a controller.

In a typical development process, it is necessary to make the changes in the code.

In order for the changes to become active in the embedded system, compilation and flashing must be done with each change.

This is different in a development process with the standard protocol XCP:

Process flow for developing applications for embedded systems with the XCP standard.

Faster and More Flexible With the Universal XCP Protocol

The "eXtended Calibration Protocol" allows read and write access to the memory of the embedded system.

Any number of parameters can be changed at runtime. The parameters are no longer changed in the code with subsequent compiling and flashing, but simply and quickly via the user interface.

To check the system, the measurement data is recorded directly via XCP. The acquisition of the measurement data is triggered by events in the embedded system (e.g. end of a time slot).

The data are always related to each other in time. Which data is measured is not specified in the code. It is done through the configuration of the measurement and parameterization tool. The embedded system becomes a white box.

XCP is designed as a master-slave solution. The XCP driver runs in the embedded system as access to the system's memory. CANape is the XCP master and the universal tool for parameterization and measurement. It is also used to manage parameter sets of any size and to evaluate the measurement data.

The options for evaluating measurement data range from visualizing the data to using mathematical functions to automated data analysis with report generation.

CANape

Universal Platform for Measurement and Parameterization

CANape is a universal measurement tool for recording different values. For example, physical variables such as pressure and temperature and internal variables from embedded systems. It is also optimized for parameterizing embedded systems. While the measurement is running, you can change parameters and observe and record the effects. Communication between CANape and the embedded systems takes place via protocols such as XCP.

Systems Engineering

Manage Complexity with Model-Based Processes

The development of medical embedded systems is strongly regulated. The development processes must comply with regulatory requirements from standards as IEC 62304 (software development) and ISO 14971 (risk management).

A profound documentation of the requirements (need) and the respective system/software architecture (solution) as well as their relations (traceability) are important preconditions for successful regulatory audits.

To keep this complexity manageable, model-based processes in systems engineering are on the rise. The Vector solution for this approach is an engineering environment, called PREEvision.

Model-Based Solutions for Medical Systems

An integrated approach for the E/E development process

In common with many other industries, medical technology is facing a profound upheaval. Medical devices are networked, collect data, adapt behavior and can learn independently. The days of developing a single isolated medical device are long gone – today, development focuses on medical system solutions with widely varying complexity. To keep increasing complexity manageable, model-based processes for electrical/electronic development are now available.
