The leading development tools vendor responds to embedded industry’s need for code quality control with integrated static code analysis tool
Uppsala, Sweden—February 18, 2015—Today, IAR Systems® announces a new tool for code quality control. As the leading vendor of embedded development tools, the company provides the high-performance toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench®, which in 2014 was complemented by the runtime analysis add-on product C-RUN®. The latest product innovation, C-STAT®, further extends the code analysis possibilities by adding powerful static code analysis directly within the development toolchain.
The embedded industry’s challenge of delivering more complex software at an ever-increasing pace raises the risks of software errors, which can affect the quality of products as well as cause security issues. By introducing code quality control early in the development cycle, the impact of errors can be minimized. Providing static analysis right at the fingertips of the developers can help them find issues during development, where the cost of errors is smaller than in the released product.
“C-STAT brings great potential for our customers to ensure the quality of their code,” says Stefan Skarin, CEO, IAR Systems. “After launching our product portfolio of in-circuit debugging probes, code analysis is the next step for us in supplying customers through the full cycle of implementation, analysis and debugging. We enable them to take full control of their development and gain efficient, adaptable workflows delivering dependable products. IAR Systems has grown into a broad vendor of tools for embedded systems and we will continue to extend our offering in line with our focus on providing high-quality tools and global services throughout the entire development cycle.”
