Nowadays the constantly growing complexity of E/E Systems in Automotive Industry is getting more and more challenging. Especially if we consider Safety Critical Systems as the leading sub-domain in industry.

In order to be able to provide the appropriate level of product quality with acceptable safety related risk, development of embedded systems must be driven by processes. These processes are intended to motivate engineers to develop in a continuously controlled, predictable environment, thus having a predictable quality and safety coded into the entire lifecycle of the product. Until now IEC 61508 has been the only safety related general standard used in automotive industry. As of 2011 a new specialized safety standard is present in the automotive industry, that is intended to control safety related development. That standard is ISO 26262.

In special cases it is not that obvious how to apply these processes on particular, already ongoing jobs. The purpose of this thesis to test a software unit written in ASM, in accordance with ISO26262. After understanding and analyzing ISO26262 requirements a testing framework will be set up that is capable to overcome the challenging tasks of ASM testing, with reasonable efforts and cost.

Evaluation results, possibilities of further development is also considered and analyzed.
