Parasoft Embedded Becomes Member of AUTOSAR Development Partnership

Parasoft Embedded Corporation, leading provider of automated solutions that improve software quality and the development process for embedded systems, announced its membership in the AUTOSAR Development Partnership.

Driven by the advent of innovative vehicle applications, contemporary automotive E/E architecture has reached a level of complexity which requires a technological breakthrough in order to manage it satisfactorily and fulfill heightened passenger and legal requirements. This need is particularly acute for high-end, luxury vehicle manufacturers and their leading Tier 1 suppliers who are faced with often conflicting requirements. Leading OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers, having recognized this to be an industry-wide challenge, decided to work together to address it, and created a development partnership called Automotive Open System Architecture (AUTOSAR).

Parasoft Embedded delivers significant value to development organizations who are creating software components for Electronic Control Units (ECU) under the AUTOSAR standard. Such components are often mission critical for safe vehicle operation. As a result, they must be built according to the highest quality standards and — very often — they must achieve the appropriate Automotive Software Integrity Level (ASIL). Moreover, once ISO/DIS 26262 becomes a standard, this additional level of compliance will be required as well. By integrating policy-driven task management with Automated Defect Prevention, Parasoft Embedded assists organizations to achieve and demonstrate compliance to the various standards that impact automotive industry software development.
