WIRRAL, England, 13 Dec. 2016. LDRA in Wirral, England, is introducing the integration of the LDRA software tool suite with ARM processor DS-5 Development Studio (DS-5) to enable embedded computing designers to test applications before target hardware is available.

This software design and development tools integration is for safety- and security-critical markets, such as automotive, medical devices, and industrial controls, and is intended to reduce system design time and development cost.

The LDRA tool suite provides software development life cycle standards compliance and traceability from functional safety and security requirements to design, coding, and verification, LDRA officials say.

The LDRA plug-in to ARM DS-5 supports a wide variety of ARM processor compilers, and capitalizes on ARM's FVPs to automate and manage testing ARM-based applications.

This integrated environment enables engineers to start testing activities with an FVP, then switch to a target as the hardware becomes available by changing one option in the LDRA graphical interface.

The LDRA tool suite includes an ARM DS-5 safety qualification kit that supports ARM formats and enables compliance with safety standards, including ISO 26262, IEC 62304, and IEC 61508. The LDRA solution also supports MISRA programming guidelines.
