Teradyne Expands Agreement With Typemock to Unit Test C++ and .NET Code

.NET and C/C++ developers at Teradyne use Typemock for Agile unit testing

Typemock (www.typemock.com), the pioneer and leading supplier of automated unit testing solutions, has announced it has extended and expanded its long-term agreement with Teradyne (NYSE: TER), a leading supplier of automation equipment for electronic test and industrial applications. Since 2010, Teradyne’s .NET developers have deployed Typemock’s Isolator unit testing solution to identify and fix bugs faster, enabling the quicker release of higher quality software. Teradyne has now purchased a site license for Isolator++, Typemock’s easy unit testing solution for C/C++ code, which will be used by all of their C/C++ developers.

Teradyne’s products include semiconductor, electronic system, and wireless product test systems along with Collaborative Robots used by global manufacturing and light industrial customers to improve quality and increase manufacturing efficiency. In 2015, Teradyne had revenue of $1.65 billion and currently employs approximately 4,200 people worldwide.

Automated unit testing minimizes bugs, namely regression bugs in production code, saves development hours, and makes it easier and cheaper to change and refactor code across the entire product life cycle. It also substantially improves code design, especially with Test-Driven Development. Typemock Isolator integrates with Visual Studio and leading developer and server tools, including TFS, and provides more coverage with a powerful mocking framework that supports testing untestable code, such as legacy code.

“Teradyne has been using Typemock Isolator for .NET for some time now. When we began searching for a unit testing solution for our C/C++ developers, we were not aware of Typemock’s product. After researching a number of alternatives, we were delighted and surprised to discover that Typemock was, once again, the best tool for us. It’s well crafted, easy to use, offers concise documentation, and supports Legacy Code, C-like code, and C++,” said David Astua, senior software engineer at Teradyne. “The most appealing feature to me is the focus on writing test code and not on re-definition of the interface or inheritance from the class under test,” he added. “Being able to mock the 'Global/C-like' methods is great and simple.”

“Teradyne has been a long-time, loyal customer and adding our C++ solution is a natural step for them,” commented Eli Lopian, Typemock‘s founder and CEO. “Typemock is a powerful mocking and unit testing framework used by many companies worldwide to identify and fix bugs faster, enabling the quicker release of higher quality software. It’s a simple choice for any organization to go with our product when unit testing. Typemock Isolator enables easy unit testing for any company, including large enterprises.”
