RapiCover support specification

Supported CPU To use RapiCover on a specific target processor, a target-specific integration library for the RVS API must be developed. This can be done through Rapita Systems' Target Integration Service or by following the RVS Integration Guide supplied with RapiCover and editing a standard template library (also supplied with RapiCover).

With RapiCover's flexible integration strategies, an integration library can be developed to collect data from almost any target architecture with extremely low on-target overheads.

If you are using RapiCover in an DO-178C/ED-12C or ISO 26262 project, our Qualified target integration kit includes tests to qualify the integration library as part of the tool qualification process.
