Andes Technology Corporation has selected and licensed the SuperTest compiler test and validation suite from ACE Associated Compiler Experts, the Dutch compiler and system software technology company. The SuperTest product will be used to enhance testing and validation of Andes' advanced compilation tools.

Compilers are complex products translating applications into machine code and require extensive testing for language conformance, correctness and quality. With its millions of tests, SuperTest assists both compiler developers to validate their compiler and compiler users to check the provided compilers before use.

"ACE has been testing compilers for more than 30 years and we are pleased to apply their superior testing infrastructure in the SuperTest product to verify and validate our compilation tools", says Charlie Su, CTO of Andes Technologies. "While our compilation tools have a good reputation, we would like to further increase the test coverage for our customers and SuperTest is the right tool to secure the excellent quality of our products."

"Many companies spend a fortune on verification of hardware and minimize their costs on software testing as software can be replaced. We are pleased that Andes Technology and their customers realize that the compiler development tools are the key bridges between the software and hardware and need to be verified like hardware", according to Marco Roodzant, Vice President of Marketing & Sales of ACE Associated Compiler Experts bv.
