Perforce makes latest version of Helix QAC available
Perforce Software has announced the general availability of the latest version of its static code analysis solution, Helix QAC.
With the latest release, Helix QAC is now able to offer complete CERT C++ rules coverage. This provides development teams that work in tightly regulated and safety-critical industries – including automotive, aerospace and defense, medical device, and rail – with greater software security.
This enhancement is especially critical for the automotive industry as the Helix QAC is considered by many to be the de facto static code analysis tool for functional safety and standards compliance, especially compliance with MISRA and AUTOSAR C++14. With complete CERT C++ coverage.
In addition to complete CERT C++ rules coverage, the latest release expands compliance coverage for the following standards:
- 100% CERT C rules coverage.
- 100% CERT C POSIX rules coverage.
- 100% MISRA C:2012 including Amendment 2 coverage.
- 98% ISO/IEC TS 17961 (C Secure) coverage.
- 91% AUTOSAR C++14 coverage.
While Helix QAC is already well known for its in-depth and high-accuracy analysis of C and C++ programming languages, Perforce said that these improvements will help to solidify this static code analysis tool as among the most accurate and precise comprehensive testing solution for functional safety, standards compliance, and compliance traceability across all embedded software development teams that work in tightly regulated and safety-critical industries.
