QA·C chosen for Fabless System-on-Chip Automotive Platform

HERSHAM, UK, February 15 2009 / PRQA | Programming Research announces that Scaleochip, a leading fabless automotive System-On-Chip (SoC) company has selected PRQA’s QA·C Language Analysis tools for its software development site based in Sophia-Antipolis France.

Scaleochip has engaged massive effort, bringing together the system and silicon, to develop an automotive platform compliant to the AUTOSAR standard.

The tooling environment is critical to ensure delivery of high quality software matching Scaleochip coding standard policy, AUTOSAR requirements, and the automotive industry expectations. After review and benchmarking of available solutions on the markets, Scaleochip R&D Vice President, B. Plessier, has selected PRQA’s QA·C. “PRQA QA·C offers best-in-class functionalities fully matching our requirements. The tool’s flexible license approach is perfectly suited for the size of the development team and the PRQA support team offered quick and comprehensive solutions when asked” commented Plessier.

In addition to unparalleled C analysis capabilities, Plessier and his teams have benefited from the tools’ wider flexibility, in particular the ability to provide a code quality solution at the generated code stage, critical in the AUTOSAR environment where a significant amount of code is automatically generated based on user configuration.
