WIRRAL, UK: LDRA, the leading provider of automated software verification, source code analysis, and test tools, joins Altium in integrating the LDRA tool suite and the TASKING VX-toolset for C166.
The integrated solution brings compliance to safety standards such as MISRA, IEC 61508, and DO-178B to small-footprint microcontrollers like Infineon’s C166 family. Designed for scalability, the combined solution maximizes code reuse and process compliance for safety- and mission-critical software across automotive, industrial and avionics markets.
With the increased call for compliance to safety standards, development teams need integrated solutions that ease the challenge of proving compliance through all stages of the development lifecycle from requirements through coding, test and verification. LDRA stands alone in providing standard compliance across all stages of the lifecycle, whether for automotive with MISRA and ISO 26262, industrial with IEC 61508 or avionics/military with DO-178B. Thanks to an Eclipse-based framework, the LDRA-TASKING integration encompasses the entire C166 family and its derivatives.
Seamless integration between the TASKING compiler and the LDRA tool suite avoids tedious configuration challenges and enables developers to easily apply LDRA’s analysis and testing capabilities from within TASKING’s IDE.
With a simple right click in TASKING’s IDE, developers can directly invoke LDRA analysis phases, gaining access to static analysis violations and code coverage, or quickly generate test cases, executing code on the target or TASKING simulator. With complete integration, all LDRA tool suite capabilities—from analysis to verification—can aid the TASKING developer in achieving certification compliance.
