LinkedIn +

Vector Informatik, a German-based specialist in the development and testing of automotive electronics, has acquired US company Vector Software, which develops automated embedded software testing solutions.

Vector Informatik has many years of experience in providing system and functional testing solutions for automotive ECUs and distributed embedded systems. The acquisition extends that portfolio with the addition of the embedded software testing platform VectorCAST, a solution for code-centric software testing. VectorCAST is used extensively in the verification of software with high quality and safety requirements.

The sales and development team of VectorCAST, which consists of more than 90 people, will remain headquartered in East Greenwich, Rhode Island, as a business division of Vector Informatik.

John Paliotta, MD and CTO at Vector Informatik, commented, “Over the last 25 years the Vector Software team has built a great product and a great brand. We could not be more pleased to be joining Vector Informatik, a company that has complementary products, but also a similar engineering-driven and customer-focused culture.”
