Timesys’ Embedded Board Farm (EBF) lets you seamlessly access your hardware boards from anywhere as if it were right next to you. And we’ve just made it even easier and more convenient by adding our command line interface (CLI).

This provides embedded software engineers with two major benefits:

  1. Stay in your preferred workflow: the EBF CLI allows you to do all your work using your preferred tools (shell, emacs, vim, etc.) without opening a web browser. It allows you to easily open up remote serial debug sessions without having to look up networking information, as if the device was local. Just use your own terminal emulator with all of your preferred settings (colors, fonts, modifier keys, etc.).
  2. Automation: No more mundane steps to slow you down every time you build. You can easily write commands in a script and run a series of commands to automate your work.Want to see how? Take it from Kitty Drake:

The CLI provides access to these Embedded Board Farm functions for automation and integration with third-party tools like test automation frameworks like Fuego and CI systems like Jenkins:

  • Device Management
  • Console Access
  • Power Control
  • Hotplug Control
  • GPIO Access
  • Image Management
    • Netboot
    • SDCard Boot
    • USB Boot
  • SDCard and USB
    • Formatting and Partitioning
    • Backup
  • File Upload / Download from Device
  • Command Execution on Device
  • EBF Server File Management

Continuous Testing Delivers Quality with Faster Time-to-Market

Continuous Testing Delivers Quality with Faster Time-to-Market

System quality requirements have never been higher. But time-to-market pressures have also never been greater. How do you meet one without sacrificing the other?

Embedded systems users expect bug free, responsive and stable applications that provide the best user experience.

The consequence of failing to meet user expectations can result in more than just application abandonment. With the power of social media, it also can quickly lead to a tarnished brand, resulting in lost revenue opportunities from both current and future users.

At the same time, increasing competition and security issues are leading to shorter development and delivery schedules, and quicker deployment of product updates and security fixes. So application failure or releasing a product with major bugs is not an option.
