Solid Sands and eSOL – Boosting customer confidence in functional safety software development with SuperTest
Safety-critical embedded software applications typically comprise developer-written application code, standard library components, and a real-time operating system (RTOS). It is extremely important, as well as challenging, to ensure that the RTOS is exhaustively tested for robustness and compliance with the applicable safety standard, ISO 26262.
Many companies use SuperTest to qualify the compiler or library they are already using. However, for leading automation company KUKA, SupertTest is also a decision-making tool that helps them decide, on a project-by-project basis, which C/C++ compiler and standard library to use.
California-based SiFive is a semiconductor IP company founded in 2015 by the inventors of the open RISC-V instruction set architecture. Its semiconductor IP ranges from high-performance application processors and vector processors to low-power embedded 64- and 32-bit microcontrollers. SiFive was the first company to design a quad-core RISC-V CPU capable of running fully featured Linux distributions.
ABIX is tasked with upgrading and improving the GCC compiler for Melexis. Read how ABIX overcomes their challenges and how SuperTest has helped improving the quality of the upgraded compiler. Read more in our new white paper.
Solid Sands and iMQ join forces to accelerate MCU innovation with high-performance C compiler implementation
Solid Sands, the world leader in testing and validation for C and C++ compilers and libraries, today announced that Taiwan-based iMQ Technology, the creator of microcontrollers and security ICs used for home applications, has adopted SuperTest Compiler Test and Validation technology for its next generation MCU compiler designs.
Virtually all of today’s safety-critical embedded software applications are made up of three components – developer written application code, standard library components, and a real-time operating system (RTOS). For Rolland Dudemaine, Vice President Engineering at eSOL Europe, that last element is why compliance to safety standards, such as ISO 26262 for automotive, is so important.
