QNX and Klocwork cooperate on Automotive Safety Program

Klocwork, a supplier of software development tools for creating secure code, and QNX Software Systems, developer of software platforms for in-car electronics, say that Klocwork has joined the ecosystem for the QNX Automotive Safety Program for ISO 26262.

The ecosystem is a network of vendors that offer complementary hardware, tool chains, graphics technologies and consulting services for safety critical systems. Klocwork joins these key industry players to further enable the development of safe and secure automotive systems that comply with ISO 26262 and other critical industry standards.

Klocwork Insight is rapidly becoming a tool of choice for software developers in the automotive market. With advanced code analysis, including deep data flow and structural analysis, Insight works right at their desktop as they write their code. With support for MISRA C and C++ coding standards, Insight recently received both ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 certifications.

Now, with Klocwork Insight plugged directly into the QNX Momentics Tool Suite, developers can run analysis directly in the suite’s IDE, allowing them to find and fix security and safety vulnerabilities on the fly, and helping to ensure that the code meets functional safety standards.

The QNX Automotive Safety Program for ISO 26262 was created to help companies building digital instrument clusters, ADAS systems, and other functional safety products to leverage QNX Software Systems’ proven competency in certifications, safety-critical systems, and automotive software design. Key elements of the program include an example safety case based on the QNX Neutrino RTOS Safe Kernel, guidelines on safety-critical design for real-time OS-based systems, and a suite of professional services, including priority support and training.
