Safety functions are increasingly being carried out by electrical, electronic, or programmable electronic systems. These systems are usually complex, making it impossible in practice to fully determine every failure mode or to test all possible behavior.

Although it is difficult to predict the safety performance, testing is still essential. The challenge is to design the system in such a way as to prevent dangerous failures or to control them when they arise.

With this trend of increasing complexity, software content, and mechatronic implementation, there are rising risks of systematic failures and random hardware failures. IEC 61508 and its derivatives (IEC 62304 and ISO 26262) include guidance to reduce these risks to a tolerable level by providing feasible requirements and processes.

TUV SUD has re-certified the latest version of Parasoft C/C++test to be qualified for safety-related software development according to IEC 61508, IEC 62304, and ISO 26262 standards, helping development teams achieve the desired safety integrity level (SIL/ASIL). Configurable test reports containing high level of details and a broad range of analysis types significantly facilitates the work required for the software verification process. These include:

  • Coding Standards Compliance
  • Static Code Analysis
  • Data and Control Flow Static Analysis
  • Unit Testing
  • Application Monitoring
  • Workflow Components
  • Automated Peer Code Review Process
