Accelerating MISRA and ISO 26262 Compliance

The automotive industry has become increasingly reliant on embedded software. Millions of lines of code in a single vehicle control everything from braking and engine management to central locking. With such heavy reliance on safety-critical software, quality becomes paramount. A software failure can lead to recalls, irreparable damage to the brand, and even loss of life.

MISRA EXPERTS

Automotive industry solutions from PRQAPRQA has worked hand-in-hand with the automotive industry for more than 25 years, helping MISRA (the Motor Industry Software Reliability Association) to write guidelines and coding standards that provide a safe subset of the C and C++ languages for use in safety-critical applications.

In parallel we have created a set of MISRA Compliance Modules which integrate with our industry-leading tools, QA·C, QA·C++ and QA·Verify, providing an automated mechanism to analyse code – through language analysis and continuous code inspection – and to enforce compliance to the MISRA standard.

ISO 26262 Certified

SGS-TUV Saar_logoAnother key standard in the automotive industry is ISO 26262, a Functional Safety standard entitled “Road vehicles – Functional safety”, which mandates the use of better development processes, coding standards, and tools that ensure that coding standards are adhered to, as a means to improve software quality.

Following an independent audit by SGS-TÜV SAAR, both QA·C and QA·C++ – when used with our MISRA C Compliance Module and as outlined in the Safety Manual – are certified as “usable in the development of safety related software” for they key safety critical standard: ISO 26262 up to ASIL Level D.
