QA-MISRA — the customised answer to market requirements

November 16th, 2021 — QA-MISRA is the tailor-made answer to current and future static-analysis market requirements. This new tool is the product of a cooperation between QA Systems and AbsInt — partners who both have many years of expertise in the field.

The earlier software errors are identified in the development cycle, the less expensive it is to fix them. Ideally, errors do not occur to begin with, or are detected straight away. It’s an important experience that developers repeatedly make: The earlier, the better.

To address that, the cooperation partner of QA Systems, AbsInt, has developed a static checker for coding rules. The tool is now distributed exclusively by QA Systems under the name QA-MISRA.

We know the market and the people involved,” says Andreas Sczepansky, Managing Director with QA Systems in Waiblingen, Germany.

QA-MISRA already checks source code for over 900 potential software errors. Through static analysis with QA-MISRA, dangerous structures as well as problems with security, maintenance and portability can be easily found at an early stage. This is a sure way for developers to reduce future costs.

QA-MISRA analyses extensive and complex software packages very quickly, regardless of the size of the codebase. This simplifies quality management and helps you comply with the relevant safety standards.

After many years of involvement in working groups of the MISRA consortium, we have created a convenient tool for efficient checking of coding guidelines, and with the help of the experts from QA Systems it has been fully aligned with the needs of customers,” says Dr.-Ing. Christian Ferdinand, Managing Director with AbsInt in Saarbrücken, Germany.

QA-MISRA is exclusively distributed internationally by QA Systems:
