Static Code Analysis for Embedded Software

Authored on: Apr 25, 2007 by David Kalinsky

Technical Paper

More InfoLess Info

A new generation of static source code analysis tools has very recently become available for the analysis of software code bases for bugs and other defects. These tools work without actually running the programs that are built from the software that is under analysis. Faults can be found early in the development process, so as to improve software quality, as well as save developers time. Such tools can cover the execution paths through a very large code base in a fully automated way, and identify complex defects including bugs involving interactions among multiple procedures.

Great article—it provides a great overview of how static analysis benefits embedded development. I regret missing the actual presentation at ESC. Once readers of your article have decided to take the plunge and start implementing static analysis, a nice follow up resource would be the product-agnostic Static Analysis Best Practices Guide produced by Parasoft (the company I work for). You can find it here http://alm.parasoft.com/parasoft-tv-best-practices-of-static-analysis-in-sdlc/

I was expecting that some of the new generation tools will be mentioned. Specially that on the preview of the document if mentions that they recently became available. So which one? This is important because when you look for a static analysis tool that are currently in the market that you get inundated with a lot of information that it makes it hard for you to choose.
