The advancements in technology are fueling autonomous driving in the automotive industry. As automobile companies move toward building driverless cars, their engineers have to ensure meticulous design and building of embedded systems for flawless performance. “Even the smallest error in the embedded systems design can put human life at risk,” informs Erol Simsek, CEO, iSYSTEM. While timing and analysis are crucial to avoid any potential disasters, the development of these complex systems can be a challenging and expensive affair. Enter iSYSTEM, a company that offers its pioneering software technologies, platforms, and development tools to fulfill the need for highly reliable and safe embedded systems. With more than 30 years in the embedded market, iSYSTEM is helping the automotive industry tackle challenges related to software development, software test, multi-core hardware and SoCs.
Apart from the software development and process challenges, automotive engineers encounter a bevy of problems while building microprocessors and controllers in collaboration with semiconductor vendors. The lack of tools to develop the right software and hardware adds to the woes. “We collaborate with our clients right from the time they undertake new projects to develop Electronic Control Units,” says Simsek. The software developers globally build safer embedded systems, perform code coverage, debug the program, and undertake timing analysis using BlueBox hardware-based technology.

BlueBox allows fast and simple access to all types of single and multi-core microcontrollers through various debug interfaces. Also, the software can be developed and tested directly on real hardware without code instrumentation.
Apart from the software development challenges, iSYSTEM addresses several barriers related to processes such as requirements traceability, timing model verification, coverage, performance, on-target analysis, unit test, integration test and system test. The company tackles the challenges using BlueBox that comprises winIDEA, testIDEA, and isystem.connect SDK. A cornerstone of the iSYSTEM’s integrated software development environment, winIDEA, ensures that developers have access to a quality development environment, allowing them to develop more efficiently and test it immediately with testIDEA tool. On the other hand, the open and free API (isystem.connect) enables iSYSTEM users to connect to the different levels of the V-Model. For instance, they can use scripts to access iSYSTEM tools from within a test automation framework.
Because of its relentless efforts in the automotive software arena, iSYSTEM has emerged as the trusted partner for a broad range of OEMs and Tier1 companies. Thanks to its deep expertise in embedded systems, the company is actively responding to the huge demand from automotive OEMs from across the globe.
While its special focus has invariably remained on the automotive industry, iSYSTEM has contributed significantly to the aerospace and other sectors as well. The systems that are built at aerospace manufacturing facilities have to, as part of a regulatory requirement, undergo certifications for safety, reliability and durability. iSYSTEM supports the customer’s certification process, with the customer, enabling them to optimize their hardware and software for increased efficiency and reliability.
Simsek believes that a company’s success is directly proportional to the level of talent it brings in. To that end, iSYSTEM is currently hiring the best technical talent. Apart from the U.S and the European market, the company is also drawing a blueprint to foray into the promising Asian markets, especially for electric vehicles.
