Software Verification Tool Suite

LDRA (San Bruno, CA) has released v8.0 of the LDRA tool suite, an automated end-to-end solution for software verification support. By integrating requirements management into the LDRA tool suite using TBreq, LDRA’s tool for next-generation management and complete automation of requirements traceability, developers can reduce software errors, project costs, and resource constraints. TBreq creates a relationship between requirements, code modules, and verification artifacts (static analysis, dynamic analysis, unit- and system-level test). All informal changes and test results are recorded, and any requirements impacted by these changes are highlighted so that all team members can identify data and code which might be suspect.

Secure System Virtualization Software

Green Hills Software (Santa Barbara, CA) recently enhanced its Platform for Secure Networking by adding secure virtualization and new reference platforms. The Green Hills approach to system virtualization enables a complete Linux operating system and its applications ecosystem to securely and seamlessly coexist with the performance, reliability-critical, and realtime portions of networking devices — all on a single general purpose microprocessor. System availability is increased by eliminating the possibility for a noncritical application failure or corruption in the Linux environment to compromise the critical real-time packet traffic applications and services running on the INTEGRITY® RTOS.
