Cantata is an automated unit and integration testing tool for C and C++ languajes, enabling developers to verify standard compliant or business critical code on host native and embedded target platforms.
Cantata helps accelerate compliance with the standard’s dynamic testing requirements by automating:
Cantata is integrated with an extensive set of embedded development toolchains, from compilers and static analysis tools to build and requirements management tools. The ECLIPSE® GUI, tight tool integrations and tests written in the source C/C++ code, all make Cantata easy to use.
QA Systems static analysis and software testing tools support verification in the linear flow of software development below. We recommend applying sequential approach to these verification stages with tools that are designed and targeted for each purpose.
International software safety standards require evidence of low level (unit and integration) testing to obtain certification for the device software.
In addition, most standards require that verification tools used are certified / qualified or proven through use. Cantata has been independently certified by SGS-TÜV SAAR GmbH for the main software safety standards.
Standard specific Cantata tool certification kits are provided free of charge and contain everything needed out-of-the-box as well as comprehensive guidance to help you achieve certification for your device software.
Tool qualification kits of Cantata are also available where tool certification against a standard is not permitted as the tool must be qualified separately for each project (e.g. for DO-178B/C).
Please contact us for more information about tool certification / qualification kits.
