LDRA cuts time and cost of certifying HC08/HCS08 to avionics, automotive, industrial


LDRA now delivers full certification capabilities for Freescale’s HC08 and HCS08 applications. By exploiting the resources of the CodeWarrior IDE, LDRA enables developers to run host-style analysis and test generation on resource-constrained processors. Automotive, industrial and avionics applications using the HC08/HCS08 processors can now automate testing and verification processes, reducing the cost of certification.

With the LDRA tool suite developers can achieve programming compliance with industry standards such as MISRA, IEC 61508, ISO 26262 and DO-178B to the highest levels. The LDRA Tool Qualification Support Pack then documents the software development process, providing the qualified output needed for certification.

The integration of the LDRA tool suite with CodeWarrior for HC08 and HCS08 streamlines user interaction, and with compiler and debugger control, developers gain easy access to data on the target that can be output to the host. In addition to providing static and dynamic analysis of the target via LDRA Testbed, test cases can be generated via LDRA’s TBeXtreme test case facility. These test cases can be generated and validated on the host and then rerun for qualification on the target.

Developers can control their application testing from the CodeWarrior environment and automate processes such as build, execution and coverage collection from the CodeWarrior IDE, allowing the LDRA tool suite to be used in the same way it would be on host targets. Using scripts, LDRA tools can control the CodeWarrior environment, providing data capture from the target via a device, such as P&E’s background debug mode probe. Similar control scripts can retrieve the data when using the simulator.
