Bermondsey Electronics’ MD, Peter Wrigley, will be giving a talk at PCB Live, part of the Engineering Solutions Live event, on March 23 at the British Motor Museum in Gaydon.
Entitled ‘Functional Verification of Prototype PCBs Using HIL Testing’, Peter’s presentation will explain how a comprehensive and highly repeatable hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) test environment for prototype boards can be created using networkable benchtop test and measurement equipment.
Peter will also describe a variety of tests that can be used to stimulate the prototype, inject faults and advance milestone events – all to verify that the internal hardware and software have been integrated properly and that the PCB can interact with the real world.
The presentation is aimed at embedded systems engineers and PCB designers, who will learn how they can de-risk their projects through automated HIL testing and go into volume production safe in the knowledge the prototype was thoroughly verified (i.e., no corner cases left unexplored) and that they have a record of all tests performed and their results.
Peter has the 11:30 to 12:00 slot in Lecture 1. Booking is recommended.

Off the back of the formal press release going out we received several requests from editors for articles, the first of which appeared in EE Times. We’ve also been approached about giving seminars and workshops at a number of industry events in 2023.
Of the publications that wrote about BELIeVE, we were particularly delighted to have been named Editor’s Choice! in the October issue of Instrumentation Monthly, in which our news covered two full pages. Other publications that ran our news included Electronics Weekly, New Electronics, Electronics Today, Electronics World, Electronic Product Design & Test, eeWorld Online, Design News, EE Journal, Electronic Specifier – Test & Measurement, Softei.com and Microcontroller Tips.
We’re extremely proud of how well BELIeVE has been received, testament to our product’s true value and usefulness within the engineering community.
We’ll shortly be adding a new section to our website in which we plan to display the articles and cases studies appearing in print. We’ll also provide details of industry events at which we’ll be exhibiting and speaking. Watch this space.
We are pleased to report that the ‘Introduction to Integration Testing’ workshop we gave yesterday at UKEmbedded, in Coventry, was a huge success. Companies in attendance included an OEM of biomedical monitoring equipment, an OEM of sports and fitness training equipment, a life-sciences company developing advanced sensing technologies and a real-time operating system (RTOS) company. Also present were three engineering consultancies.
Delegate job titles included R&D Engineer, Embedded Software Engineer and Managing Director.
The breadth of the audience, i.e., the types of company present and the sectors they serve, reflects just how important integration verification is within the world of embedded systems right now. OEMs are under pressure to fast track the development of their products to hit target launch dates. However, they must ensure that quality and reliability are not compromised.
As well as appreciating the importance of better integration testing – thoroughly and as soon as possible within the product development lifecycle – all attendees expressed a high level of interest in our very own solution to automated integration verification; a solution which will be formally launched as a commercial Windows-based application later this year.
