Solid Sands introduces license-free service to ease compiler qualification

Advertisement

Solid Sands announced a major expansion of its service offering specifically targeted at the burgeoning number of SMEs that don’t have the knowledge or manpower to undertake compiler qualification in-house. As part of its new SuperTest-based Compiler Qualification Service, Solid Sands engineers will qualify a range of commonly used compilers under an individual user’s set of compiler options and use cases. Compiler errors detected during qualification will be detailed in a comprehensive qualification report, with the option of enlisting Solid Sands’ world-leading expertise to mitigate their effects. The benefits of Solid Sands’ new Compiler Qualification Service will be particularly relevant in the growing number of functional safety and security critical application domains.

To deliver its new Compiler Qualification Service, Solid Sands has constructed execution environments for over 20 commonly used compilers, allowing qualification to be performed in the same environment with the same set of compiler options the customer is using. These execution environments can even include target hardware provided by the customer in the form of a suitable development/prototype board. After running SuperTest in the specified environment, customers will be provided with a detailed qualification report highlighting any compiler errors. As an added cost follow-up service, Solid Sands will provide expert advice on how the effects of these compiler errors can be mitigated.
Introduction of Solid Sands’ new Compiler Qualification Service is a direct response to the growing number of quality-related questions from functional safety and security conscious users, many of them in highly innovative SMEs that drive technological change.
