The investment required to produce software for airborne systems warrants scrupulous adherence to industry standards. The FAA uses DO-178B/C as a guide for determining software safety. However, developing DO-178B/C compliant software for airborne systems is no easy feat.

Parasoft helps ease the burden of compliance by offering an integrated solution for automating software verification and validation processes and software quality tasks specified in DO-178B/C, including static analysis, data flow static analysis, metrics analysis, peer code review, unit testing and runtime error detection. This provides teams a practical way to prevent, expose, and correct errors in functional safety systems.

This paper discusses the following topics:

  • Background about DO-178B/C
  • Key differences between the versions
  • Why policy-driven development is central to DO-178B/C compliance
  • How Parasoft Development Testing Platform for C
