The problem

In order to increase the productivity and the quality of the software lifecycle, companies involved in the development of embedded systems are increasingly developing internal tools or using off-the-shelf tools to reduce, eliminate, or automate the objectives of the design or verification process.

However, in the context of safety-critical software certification such as airborne software, ADAS systems and others, it is required to qualify these tools.

Our offering

  • Adapt to the clients’ tools to meet the standards
    • Assistance in the choice of tools
    • Assessment of the required qualification level
  • Automate the production chain including the creation and/or the configuration of tools to meet needs up to qualification
  • Develop and/or adapt a qualification kit
    • Creation of the Software development and verification plans
    • Specification document
    • Results report
    • Qualification report
  • Qualify tools under ISO2626262:2018 (part 8) and DO-178B/C (DO-330)
