As automobile electronics become more prevalent and sophisticated, ensuring the reliability of the embedded software code within those systems becomes critical to the safety of passengers and pedestrians. The development of an ISO 26262 qualified code generator helps automotive OEMs and suppliers drastically reduce development costs while ensuring that their embedded software applications will meet stringent safety standards. This code generator is part of a model-based design solution in which modeling and simulation are used throughout the product development lifecycle as the authoritative definition and verification of the product design.
The recent qualification of the ANSYS SCADE Suite code generator for developing ISO 26262 compliant applications up to ASIL D, the highest safety requirement for automotive applications, substantially reduces the embedded software development time and cost. The code generator is offered as part of a complete end-to-end, model-based systems engineering (MBSE) solution for the development of safety-related systems. It has been proven through its use in the development of many safety-critical aeronautics systems by Airbus, Boeing, Pratt & Whitney, General Electric and many others.
