  • I have some embedded devices attached by CAN bus. Is STAF a suitable software package for functional testing of such devices?

    STAF does not currently support being run on any embedded operating systems.

    Section "1.1 Requirements" in the STAF User's Guide at http://staf.sourceforge.net/current/STAFUG.htm#HDRREQUIREMENTS says:

  • My apologies, I was very unclear.

    I want to test an embedded device connected to a computer via CAN bus. The testing software would run on the computer, and send CAN messages to the embedded device. The responses from the embedded device would then be interpreted by the testing software.

    STAF can be used to run most any command via its PROCESS service so you could run your tests via STAF.
