TOOLS TO COMPLY, TEST & ANALYZE EMBEDDED SOFTWARE
QA Systems’ certified software testing tools accelerate the development of embedded software while ensuring quality and compliance with safety standards. Our comprehensive capabilities support most testing requirements, enabling early identification, prevention, and resolution of defects, as well as continuous quality assurance, speedy delivery, and adherence to industry standards.
Coding Standards Compliance
Coding standards for functional safety (MISRA, AUTOSAR etc) and security (CERT and CWE etc). It also provides insights through metrics and visualisations into source code quality.
Automated Unit &
Verify standard compliant or business critical C/C++ code coverage on embedded target and host native platforms. Integrated with an extensive set of embedded development toolchains, from cross-compilers to requirements management and continuous integration tools.
Sound Static Analysis Tool to Prove the Absence of Errors
Proving absence of runtime errors and data races. It reports program defects caused by unspecified and undefined behaviours according to the C/C++ language standards, program defects caused by invalid concurrent behaviour, and computes program properties relevant for functional safety.

How Our Verification Tools Fit In Your Process
QA Systems enables organizations to accelerate safety standards compliance with automated static & dynamic software testing tools. Driving embedded software quality with automation of unit testing, code coverage tools for embedded, integration testing and static analysis to optimise safety and business critical embedded software.
QA-MISRA and Cantata are independently certified by SGS TÜV for use at the highest integrity level of safety related software development for all major safety standards (ISO 26262, IEC 61508, IEC 62304, EN 50128/EN50657, and IEC 60880), and qualifiable for standards such as DO-178C & DO-330.
For Astrée we provide a Qualification Support Kit (QSK) which automatically executes a full tool qualification verification test suite on the installed tool configuration and generates the necessary reports for tool qualification.
QA Systems static analysis and software verification tools, support verification in the linear flow of software development below. We recommend applying a sequential approach to these verification stages with tools that are designed and targeted for each purpose.
- COMPLY > Use QA-MISRA for fast coding standard compliance at the developer’s desktop first.
- TEST > Use Cantata for automated dynamic execution of the standard compliant software.
- ANALYZE > Use Astrée for proving absence of run-time errors on whole application.
NB: Astrée uses the same configuration as QA-MISRA, so the effort to apply it later to a QA-MISRA project later is low.
