Enforce MISRA-C and MISRA-C++ coding standards

The Motor Industry Software Reliability Association (MISRA) coding standards provides guidance to the automotive industry (as well as many others) to help facilitate safe and reliable coding practices for safety-critical embedded software. Klocwork provides built-in, automated detection and reporting for MISRA-C and MISRA-C++. With our tools, MISRA coding standard violations can be reported automatically at the developer desktop and through our code review solution. Combined with Klocwork's leading defect detection capabilities, customers can implement defect detection and coding standard enforcement using just one tool.

Ensuring the software that drives our diagnostics and onboard systems for the automotive industry is MISRA compliant is an important milestone in our development process. The unique combination of critical defect detection and MISRA support offered by Klocwork is one of the key reasons we choose their static analysis solution.

Ensure ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 compliance

ISO-26262 is a Functional Safety standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and is targeted at road vehicle safety. The standard is based heavily on the Functional Safety standard IEC 61508 for Automotive Electric/Electronic Systems, covering numerous activities and processes in the software development cycle.

Klocwork Insight is ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 certified. Developers can use the certified set of Klocwork Insight checkers to find and fix security vulnerabilities and critical defects with confidence, knowing they have been designed, developed, tested and released in an audited and certified manner. Klocwork also provides guidance to ensure that developers use our static analysis tool in a functionally safe way that supports their own application for ISO 26262 certification.
