Functional safety is a critical concern across industries like automotive, railways, aviation, industrial, and medical devices. To achieve functional safety in C/C++ applications, QA Systems offers embedded software testing and verification tools. In this blog, we explore the importance of functional safety, its applications, relevant standards, and steps for certification. Our software verification tools streamline testing, enhance code quality, and expedite compliance. Contact us to learn how our tools can help you achieve functional safety excellence in your development process.
In many business segments, be it transportation, industrial automation or in medical devices, industry leaders have developed finely tuned software code bases over the years. This code tends to consist of many interlocking parts with common dependencies. Small changes in one part of a project can have wide-ranging impacts on other parts of a project.
Maintaining consistent software quality across generations of production code releases is vital to maximizing reliability, functional safety and certification compliance while minimizing liability exposure in the process.
In this blog, Rob Mueller-Albrecht, Cantata Technical Support Engineer of QA Systems, dives into how to avoid frustration and resolve problems efficiently in all phases of software development, verification and certification, it is best to have the orchestra of software professionals work from the same musical arrangement.
C and its derivative C++ are the two most prevalent and relied upon languages used for the provision of Safety Critical Systems in the automotive industry and adherence to the ISO 26262 Certification Standard is mandatory.
But to understand why we need to wind the clock back in time to the glorious 1980s. Electronically controlled ignition and fuel injection systems were the first major embedded systems developed in the automotive industry.
The replacement of mechanical and analogue ignition and injection systems heralded the introduction of controllable digital alternatives, which kept pace with the availability of cheaper, faster, more robust and reliable micro-controllers.
Find out in this blog why C and its derivative C++ are the two most prevalent languages within the automotive industry.
