As LG’s own proprietary system verification solution, TestPresso has passed the standard certification evaluated by global certification institute.

TestPresso has proved its safety by receiving IEC 61508 certification, the international standard for the functional safety of electrical and electronic systems, as well as ISO 26262, the international standard for automotive functional safety from the German certification institute TUV SUD. TestPresso verifies the function and performance of software and hardware.

TUV SUD is a highly trusted international service corporation that provides testing and certification for the electrical, electronic, automotive and energy fields. They strictly evaluate the entire process and determine whether it meets international standards, including design, function verification, implementation and the operation of management systems for development.

TestPresso was able to pass this difficult certification process due to the competitiveness of LG software. This means that LG’s software development capability meets international standards. TestPresso’s rarity in the automotive software testing field is certain to further increase as there are few test solutions on the market that meet the automotive functional safety international standard ISO 26262.

LG utilizes TestPresso extensively when developing smart home appliances, automotive parts and robots as well as when verifying product quality. In addition, TestPresso has been tested numerous times since 2004, and through the recognition of its safety and performance, it is utilized by LG affiliates and other companies. In particular, TestPresso has caught the attention of many companies which find the verification solution by broadening its areas of application such as in the electrical, electronic, automotive and IoT fields.

“The international standard certification of TestPresso signifies a major advancement in LG’s software capability.”, said Dr. I.P. Park, president and CTO of LG Electronics. “LG consistently strives to offer benefits to customers by providing differentiated technology.”
