Reducing the Odds of Failure

Creating High-Integrity, Reliable Software with AdaCore

In today’s high-reliability embedded systems, failure is not an option. Not only is failure not an option, a bug in the software could result in catastrophic consquences. In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we tackle these very issues with Quentin Ochem from AdaCore. Quentin and I discuss the myriad of challenges surrounding high-integrity, high-reliability software development, the benefits of AdaCore’s GNAT Pro software development suite, and how AdaCore’s GNAT Pro was used in the ExoMars program. Also this week, I unveil the winners of this year’s “Make It With Ada” contest and explain why having a solid strategy for signal integrity is crucial to your next system design.
