LDRA tool suite® and Synopsys ARC® integration

The LDRA tool suite integrated with Synopsys DesignWare ARC MetaWare Development Toolkit for Safety delivers a test and validation lifecycle solution, accelerating and reducing cost of compliance with ISO 26262 to ASIL D.

LDRA has partnered with Synopsys to deliver a test and validation lifecycle solution for developers using Synopsys DesignWare® ARC® Functional Safety Processor IP. The LDRA tool suite together with the Synopsys DesignWare ARC MetaWare Development Toolkit for Safety enables source code static and dynamic analysis, improves code quality, safety, and security, and reduces testing costs.

This new LDRA integration with the Synopsys DesignWare ARC MetaWare Development Toolkit for Safety provides source code static and dynamic analysis, as well as verification on host and target for the DesignWare ARC EM FS and ARC HS FS families of functional safety processors. Together, developers can more quickly:

  • Comply with coding standards (industry- and user-defined) such as MISRA, CERT and AUTOSAR
  • Provide robust complexity, data and control flow analysis
  • Automate test case, harness, stub generation and test execution
  • Expose high-risk areas and defects via in-depth code analysis, verification and report generation
  • Automate production of software certification and approval evidence

Synopsys DesignWare ARC functional safety processor IP supports safety levels ASIL B and ASIL D to simplify and accelerate application development using a safety-critical automotive SoC. The Synopsys DesignWare ARC MetaWare Development Toolkit for Safety helps software developers accelerate the development of ISO 26262-compliant code.
