As technology becomes more pervasive in our lives, the safety and security of embedded systems is becoming more of a concern in the industry, with standards requiring or strongly recommending having some type of functional-safety certification and following coding standards.

C and C++ are great programming languages in embedded systems. The primary reason that these languages have persisted is that there is widespread support for the languages (and their many dialects) across myriad tools that target virtually any embedded architecture. If C and C++ are so great, what is the problem with using them in functional safety systems?

C and C++ are powerful languages that you can use in your functional safety project, but you will be required to use a coding standard like MISRA C, SEI CERT C or the Common Weakness Enumeration to remove some of the ambiguities of your selected programming language.

In our latest webinar, you will will learn more about ensuring code quality and how to use code analysis tools to find and remove defects much more quickly, thus lowering your defect injection rate and helping you to achieve your release metrics much more quickly.
