LDRA, the leading provider of automated software verification, source code analysis and test tools, today announced that it has appointed Logic Technology to extend LDRA’s reach into the German- and Dutch-speaking regions of Europe for safety-, mission- and security-critical markets. With nearly 20 years’ experience in embedded technology sales, Logic Technology brings engineering-savvy expertise to customer sales throughout Germany, Benelux, Austria and Switzerland.
With a joint focus on end-to-end solutions, LDRA and Logic Technology look forward to presenting LDRA’s extensive standards and certification expertise into markets such as industrial control, medical, avionics and automotive industries. In these markets, the early implementation of high-quality code processes dramatically reduces development time and cost, and delivers application code that is more reliable, maintainable and certifiable.
Logic Technology’s comprehensive product offering ranges from software quality and board solutions to development tools and software components. The LDRA tool suite – which includes automated tools that cover the entire development lifecycle from requirements engineering through code compliance; static and dynamic analysis through target testing and verification – will support the end-to-end software testing requirements of Logic Technology’s clients. All Logic Technology sales are complemented by strong technical support, in-depth technology courses and training and consultancy services.
“Known for its engineering competency, Logic Technology understands the challenges of companies that are implementing rigorous certification processes whether for industrial safety, medical devices, automotive compliance or avionics certification,” confirmed Ian Hennell, LDRA Operations Director. “In these markets, accurate guidance in the initial stages of selecting and implementing best-of-breed tools can save companies significant sums of money in product development, maintenance and time to market. Logic Technology understands this and is committed to helping LDRA assist companies in achieving their certification goals.”
"As software applications become exponentially more complex, software development teams struggle to meet scheduled release dates and produce code that is readable, testable and in many cases certifiable,” attested Gilbert Gadet, Sales Manager at Logic Technology. “LDRA's products and services are at the leading edge of software testing technology, and the LDRA tool suite is an excellent fit for our Code Quality and Productivity Tools portfolio. We are very pleased to be able to offer our clients a way of efficiently testing and certifying their software as well as speeding their time to market.”
LDRA’s leading certification technology, developed over nearly 40 years of helping clients achieve certification readiness, provides a suite of tools fine-tuned to the needs of safety-critical markets. From requirements traceability to analysis, unit testing and validation, the LDRA tool suite supports certification objectives at all levels of design assurance. Widely-used certification templates and checklists establish standard-specific processes that allow applicants to meet management, development and verification objectives.
Supporting a comprehensive list of industry standards, LDRA helps companies achieve certification to the most rigorous levels for avionics (DO-178B/C), industrial safety (IEC 61508), automotive (ISO 26262), medical (IEC 62304), nuclear power (IEC 60880) and railway (EN 50128) systems. LDRA also offers program rule checking, which enables companies to improve or secure code with compliance to standards such as MISRA or Cert C.
