LDRA Joins Wind River Studio Partner Ecosystem; Adds Safety and Security Analysis and Verification to the DevOps Software Lifecyle

Relationship extends Wind River’s cloud native platform for the development, deployment, operations, and servicing of mission-critical intelligent systems from devices to cloud

Boston, Massachusetts—September 16, 2021—LDRA has joined the Wind River Studio partner ecosystem, offering static and dynamic analysis for safety- and security-critical applications that use Wind River’s cloud native platform for intelligent systems. The leader in standards compliance, automated software verification, software code analysis, and test tools extends Wind River’s cloud native platform with a single work environment enabling developers and others to conduct these automated analysis and verification tasks throughout the DevOps software lifecycle.

Wind River Studio is a cloud native platform for the development, deployment, operations, and servicing of mission-critical intelligent systems from devices to cloud. It enables improvements in productivity, agility, and time-to-market, with seamless technology integration that includes far edge cloud compute, data analytics, security, 5G, and artificial intelligence/machine learning. The latest version, announced July 20, adds LDRA’s analysis and verification capabilities, which automate coding standards compliance, software quality analysis, and source code coverage analysis on the host and target.

“As the complexity of embedded systems grows, and 5G, AI, and the Internet of Things become mainstream, cloud-native platforms have emerged as the de facto standard for the entire lifecycle of mission-critical intelligent systems,” said Ian Hennell, Operations Director, LDRA. “These systems include edge devices and cloud-hosted applications for delivering safer, more economical, and more capable products and systems across all market segments. Ensuring that these systems meet evolving safety and security requirements and standards is a critical step in the process.”

LDRA Integration Helps Deliver Seamless Collaboration Across Product Lifecycle

Wind River Studio’s customizable automation engine, digital feedback loop, and enhanced security and analytics with machine learning capabilities all support DevSecOps (development security operation) pipelines. The Wind River Studio Platform enables seamless collaboration across the product lifecycle for an increasingly remote, geographically dispersed workforce and changing developer demographics. 

LDRA’s contribution to the Wind River Studio platform includes:

  • VxWorks, VxWorks 653 and VxWorks Cert Edition
    • An extensive set of physical targets spanning all popular architectures
    • Testing on virtual targets using Wind River Simics
    • Compliance with industry- and user-defined coding standards such as MISRA and CERT
  • Automated dynamic testing, including source code coverage analysis to meet the demands of the most stringent design assurance levels
  • Automatic production of software certification and approval evidence

LDRA software solutions are underpinned by LDRA’s ISO 9001:2015 certified quality management system, and the LDRA tool suite’s TÜV SÜD and SGS-TÜV Saar certification.

“In an intelligent systems future, automation will be vital throughout a secure DevSecOps software lifecycle, allowing teams to spend more of their valuable time on innovation instead of routine tasks,” said Amar Parmar, Senior Director, Solution Partners at Wind River. “By working with industry leaders like LDRA to further extend the Wind River Studio platform, we can address key customer needs such as the automation of test coding standards compliance, software quality analysis, and source code coverage analysis.”

Why Measure C02 Indoor Air Quality?

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Sensirion

The amount of carbon dioxide in the air can be a key indicator in indoor air quality and improving our indoor air quality can have a slew of benefits including increased energy efficiency, increased cognitive performance, and also the reduction of the risk for viral infection. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Bernd Zimmermann from Sensirion about the reasons for measuring carbon dioxide in our indoor spaces, what this kind of measurement looks like, and why Sensirion’s new SCD4 carbon dioxide sensors are breaking new ground in this arena.
