LDRA Leads the Market with Immediate, Comprehensive Tool Support For MISRA C:2012

LDRA, the leading provider of automated software verification, source code analysis and test tools, today announced the immediate availability of compliance tools for the recently announced MISRA C:2012 guidelines for safety-critical software. LDRA offers the most comprehensive and automated approach to meeting the MISRA C rules, with products that include a standalone rule checker as well as a portfolio of tools that integrates MISRA C compliance into the software development lifecycle. With LDRA’s updated products that incorporate the latest MISRA C rules, developers can be assured that they are following the most stringent coding quality standards to mitigate liability and risk in software applications on which human lives depend.

MISRA C is a software development language subset originally created to promote the safer use of the C programming language in safety-critical automotive applications. The first version was released in 1998 (MISRA C:1998) to target C90, and the 2004 version (MISRA C:2004) provided extensions and improvements. Today, MISRA is a widely adopted, de facto safe-coding standard designed to help achieve software quality in automotive, aerospace, industrial, medical, defense and rail applications that have a high cost of failure.

“LDRA has played an important role in the development and completion of MISRA C:2012,” commented Steve Montgomery, Chair of the MISRA C:2012 Working Group. MISRA is about collaboration and the latest version of MISRA C has benefited greatly from the involvement of all parties, including engineers across a number of sectors and disciplines. It is that expertise that will help programmers make safer use of the features of the C language.”

LDRA offers a full range of tools for every MISRA C version, including rule-compliance traceability across the software development lifecycle and standalone rule checking

MISRA C helps software development teams create software applications that are of the highest quality, that have fewer defects and that are more maintainable, readable, consistent and verifiable. Because of LDRA’s long-standing leadership in developing and supporting safety- and security-critical industry standards, LDRA has been strongly committed to MISRA, providing multiple employees as members to the MISRA C Working Group and MISRA C++ Working Group, as well as chairmanship of the MISRA C++ Working Group.

The LDRA tool suite® is the only solution that lets developers integrate MISRA C rules into the software development process, with full MISRA C compliance from requirements traceability through coding, analysis, testing, verification and certification. Developers also have access to a cost-effective option in the standalone point tool LDRArules™, which is easily configurable for complete MISRA C rules or any user-defined combination of in-house programming templates and industry-standard rules. With these LDRA products, programmers have a consistent development environment for multiple projects, from those based on the newest MISRA C rules through legacy projects that use any previous MISRA C version.

MISRA support available now in the LDRA tool suite and LDRArules

The LDRA tool suite assists with the eight primary tasks required to achieve an organization's software development and maintenance goals. All versions of the MISRA C rules, including MISRA C:2012, are completely integrated into the upgraded tool suite for efficient compliance checking within a familiar development environment. LDRArules is a cost-effective, standalone programming rule checker that brings together a collection of rules from a broad spectrum of programming standards, including MISRA C:1998, MISRA C:2004, MISRA C:2012, MISRA AC AGC, MISRA C++:2008, CERT C, CERT J, CWE, HIS, JPL, JSF++ AV, High Integrity C++, SPARK Ada subset and the Ravenscar Profile. MISRA C:2012 will be made available to all existing LDRA maintenance customers of these products.

In his keynote at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Director of IoT Engineering at Citrix and co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, focused on building an IoT platform and company. He provided a behind-the-scenes look at Octoblu’s platform, business, and pivots along the way (including the Citrix acquisition of Octoblu).
For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
The security needs of IoT environments require a strong, proven approach to maintain security, trust and privacy in their ecosystem.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
You think you know what’s in your data. But do you? Most organizations are now aware of the business intelligence represented by their data. Data science stands to take this to a level you never thought of – literally. The techniques of data science, when used with the capabilities of Big Data technologies, can make connections you had not yet imagined, helping you discover new insights and ask new questions of your data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sarbjit Sarkaria, data science team lead ...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
