New On-Demand SAE International Presentation Explores Using Hardware-in-the-Loop to Detect Software Bugs

WARRENDALE, Pa., Aug. 20, 2015 -

SAE International offers a free, on-demand presentation discusses ways to scale hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) test efficiently, including having a desktop-based HIL system that can sit at any engineer’s desk for closed-loop control and early software validation.


Finding Defects Earlier through Scalable HIL Test” is a 20-minute program sponsored by National Instruments.


HIL testing is an effective method of software validation to find defects and bugs before devices are deployed into the field. Webcast participants will have the opportunity to learn how scaling a system appropriately to address specific HIL system needs and technical concepts will accelerate defect detection to earlier in the development process. They will also be able to ask questions.


Speaker for the event is Noah Reding, Senior Product Manager, Systems and Applications for National Instruments. Mr. Reding is on application areas such as hardware-in-the-loop simulation and test cell measurement and control in the automotive industry. During his eight years at National Instruments, he has focused on global sales, marketing, and product strategies to meet the most demanding challenges of the industry, while understanding customer requirements as they test and validate electronic control systems throughout the development cycle. He received his bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Vanderbilt University with a focus on signal processing and microelectronics.
