Functional testing for digital systems?

Written by Ian on Saturday 16/12/06

Have you built a digital system that needs testing, verification or validation? We've been round this loop a number of times for different products - both hardware and software. We can't over-stress the importance of testing to ensure product quality. Some of the biggest issues are explored in the article which presents a flowchart of design from requirements to final product. Some of the most useful stuff we've learnt from this are covered here including the famous Top 10 principles of testing from IVM, and a comparative list of test methods.
