In this paper the author presents a generic test equipment for embedded platform software. This approach helps to overcome the paradigms of modern software development like object-oriented concepts, rapid prototyping and communication-support over a large number of different protocols. As different platforms are supported, the most relevant differences between compilers, processors and operating systems are described. Since testers of embedded systems are usually familiar with C and C++, the test equipment is based on CINT, a C++ interpreter. The last section of this paper investigates the advantages and drawbacks of CINT.
