TÜV SÜD Re-certifies Parasoft C/C++test for Safety-critical DevelopmentMay 20, 2016
Monrovia, CA.--Parasoft Corporation is pleased to announce that Parasoft C/C++test 9.6 has been certified by TÜV SÜD as meeting the safety-related software development tool requirements according to the IEC 61508 and ISO 26262 standards. C/C++test is Parasoft's development testing solution for C and C++ applications. It automates a broad range of best practices and testing activities—including static analysis, unit testing, coverage analysis, and more—proven to improve software development team productivity and software quality. Previous versions of C/C++test have also been re-certified by TUV. Download the Certification Documents.
Parasoft Re-Certification by TÜV SÜD
“This certification demonstrates that not only does Parasoft C++test meet the requirements described by TUV, but also that our processes are aligned with industry best practices,” said Mark Lambert, VP of Development at Parasoft. “It demonstrates our continued commitment to assisting organizations in the safety-critical industries, including automotive, aerospace, and healthcare.” Modern electrical, electronic, or programmable electronic systems that carry out safety functions are extraordinarily complex, which makes fully determining every failure mode or testing all possible behavior nearly impossible. Predicting safety performance is difficult, but 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. As software complexity and mechatronic implementation continues to increase, so do the risks of systematic and hardware failures. IEC 61508 and its derivatives (e.g. IEC 61513, IEC 62061), as well as ISO 26262, include guidance to reduce these risks to a tolerable level by providing feasible requirements and processes. When C++test used in conjunction with Parasoft Development Testing Platform, organizations can achieve full traceability across the SDLC.
Parasoft C/C++test helps teams develop and verify safety-related software in compliance with safety-critical development requirements and achieve the desired safety integration level (SIL/ASIL). C/C++test automates a broad range of analysis types–including static code analysis, flow analysis, unit testing, coverage analysis, runtime error detection, and automated peer review, and delivers a high level of detail about code and process quality. This provides organizations critical information for accelerating safety-critical development and software verification processes. For more information please read our white papers on:
