Munich, Germany. TASKING’s static software analysis tool, the Safety Checker, has been upgraded to v3.0 including Freedom from Interference (FFI) technology. Its Safety Checker utilizes compiled statistical code analysis to base assessments on what it detects as critical memory violations and proactively integrates software components with differing safety needs in memory, even with no MPU (Memory Protection Unit) available. A list of memory violations is generated reducing the amount of time it takes to debug possible infractions. 

The solution seamlessly offers compatibility among many differing compilers and hardware architectures, and can be leveraged into Continuous Integration Build environments like Jenkins.

What's New in 3.0

  • Graphical user interface offering definition of security classes, access rights, and files/function assignments to security classes
  • Ability to import AUTOSAR configuration files (.arxml)
  • Reports in HTML, XML, or PDF format including access violation log, function call graph, MISRA/CERT C violations, and code metrics
  • Checks compliance with guidelines, MISRA-C or CERT-C
  • ISO 26262 compliant
