IAR Systems has added C-STAT, a new tool for code quality control, to its IAR Embedded Workbench. C-STAT extends code analysis possibilities by adding powerful static code analysis directly within the development toolchain. Providing static analysis at the fingertips of developers can help them find issues during development, where the cost of errors is smaller than in the released product.
Static analysis finds potential issues in code by doing an analysis on the source code level. In addition to raising the code quality, the analysis also aids alignment with industry coding standards. C-STAT checks compliance with rules as defined by coding standards including MISRA C:2004, MISRA C++:2008 and MISRA C:2012, as well as hundreds of rules based on for example CWE (the Common Weakness Enumeration) and CERT C/C++.
See a video of CEO Stefan Skarin presenting C-STAT.
IAR Systems will demonstrate the new tool in booth 4-216 at Embedded World 2015 in Nuremberg, Germany on February 24-26.
