Accelerate Safety-Critical Software Development

Software has become the leading cost in the production of safety-critical systems – a full third of the cost of a new airplane is in software and software development. In automobiles, 25% of the capital costs of a new vehicle are now electronics (including software). 

The software has afforded amazing new capabilities, but its exponential growth and associated costs have made it effectively unaffordable. To cope with these issues, software teams are looking for increased levels of test and verification automation – helping to speed verification while driving higher testing coverage. 

Static analysis has been proven to be a highly valuable member of software verification tool suites for safety-critical software development, yielding significant benefits to development, QA, and audit teams by: 

  • Increase code coverage
  • Enhancement of system expertise. 
  • Analyzing highly complex scenarios.
  • Improved code quality and security metrics. 
  • Improved code compliance – coding standards, industry standards, and more 

Comply with Functional Safety Standards

Static analysis is an important technology for developing software that needs to achieve high levels of functional safety. CodeSonar is pre-qualified for the highest levels of safety for the IEC 61508, ISO 26262, and CENELEC EN 50128 standards by Exida. Artifacts for qualification according to DO-178C / DO-330 are also available.

Access Safety Documentation

The CodeSonar Safety Documentation Kit contains functional safety certificates issued by Exida that describe the qualification level that CodeSonar has reached for the various safety standards, complete with the report of that assessment. It also includes a Tool Safety Manual that has information as to how the team can best utilize CodeSonar in the functional safety process.
