The LDRA tool suite provides a continuum of capabilities including requirements traceability, test management, coding standards compliance, code quality review, code coverage analysis, data-flow and control-flow analysis, unit/integration/target testing, and certification and regulatory support.
The LDRA tool suite has the capability to parse IAR project files and use these project files to speed static analysis efforts by reading include paths, macros and other settings. In addition, the LDRA tool suite can invoke iarbuild and cspybat to build, download and execute on targets or IAR’s simulators. This allows users to perform system and unit tests using the already available IAR infrastructure to provide a head start to developers.
The LDRA tool suite integration allows for these microcontrollers to be used in DO-178B/C and analogous medical and industrial qualification environments.
