Product Overview

Our products are heavily focused on defect detection by identifying coding vulnerabilities and non-compliance issues. We are proud to announce the following successful increasing developer’s productivity products:

QA·C
In-depth static analysis tool for the C language, ensuring sophisticated software defects detection, thanks to our advanced dataflow engine. Besides, QA·C is highly effective defect detection analyzer, certified by SGS-TÜV Saar for the main safety-critical standards: ISO 26262, IEC 62303, IEC 60880, IEC 61508 and EN 50128.

QA·C++
This source code analysis solution is the most sophisticated one for the Modern C++ language. Indeed, the product has been certified as ‘usable in the development of safety related software’ by SGS-TÜV Saar for the key safety-critical standards.

QA∙Verify
Centralized, collaborative and strong metrics..., QA·Verify offers all that and even more! Standing beyond the traditional software quality management systems, it is a smart extension of the parsing technology from QA·C and QA·C++, including also Structure 101, bug and issue tracking software JIRA and many others.

Structure101
It provides detailed visualization of complicated C and C++ coding projects by leveraging the strong efficiencies from QA·C and QA·C++. Structure 101 is a unique tool for the developer teams, because it allows simpler code-base, defined architecture, reducing the spiraling complexity and saving time.


Coding Standards

Dubious coding structures can kill your code. That’s why there are coding standards, which define a set of rules, aiming at eliminating software defects and providing good practices for all to follow. These guidelines are fundamental to several industries and adopted by manufacturers and their supply chain.

Our company insures tools for all coding standards. Some of our main focuses are:

MISRA

CERT and CWE

High Integrity C++

JSF AV C++

Internal Coding Standards
