New Axivion Suite 7.5 ramps up on Features for Safety-Related Software Development and Faster Workflows
Automated checks for new MISRA C++ 202x rules and enhanced usability for faster workflows
Stuttgart, December 5, 2022 –Axivion, a provider for innovative software solutions for static code analysis and protection from software erosion, just announced the latest version of Axivion Suite, their tool suite for static code analysis and architecture verification. The tool suite is known for its MISRA checker covering 100% of all automatically testable MISRA rules – Axivion Suite 7.5 now even includes checks for several new MISRA C++ 202x rules. Furthermore, the latest version helps speed up code analysis and offers custom visualisations in the web user interface, improved usability as well as an easier set-up.
Ready for MISRA C++ 202x
Especially when developing safety-critical embedded systems, e.g. in automotive, medical or industrial applications, compliance with the latest coding standards is a must to ensure code quality throughout the whole development process. The Axivion Suite already covers 100% of the automatically testable coding guidelines of MISRA C:2004, MISRA C:2012 (including Amendment 1 Security Rules and Amendment 2) and MISRA C++:2008 in consideration of MISRA Compliance:2016 and MISRA Compliance:2020. Now the latest version Axivion Suite 7.5 also safeguards compliance with several new MISRA C++ 202x rules, which are expected to replace and continue the AUTOSAR C++:14 guidelines as well as supporting more recent versions of the C++ language. Axivion’s MISRA checker is certified by SGS TÜV Saar for use in software projects with safety requirements according to ISO 26262 up to ASIL D, IEC 61508 up to SIL 4, and IEC 62304 up to Class C.
Enhanced Web UI
Another new feature for the user-friendly Axivion Suite is the custom visualisation in the web-based user interface (web UI): Users can easily tailor the dashboard in the project overview according to their needs to speed up their workflows. Some graphics used in the visualisation are interactive, which allows developers to directly access a specific part of the code. To create the individual visualisations, Python or other scripts can be used. Alternatively, there are several preconfigured examples to choose from.
Merging Workflows and Easier Setups
Of particular interest to larger development teams is another new feature of the tool suite’s latest version: improved support for code merging workflows. Axivion analysis results from different branches can now be merged into the main branch without losing tags and annotations set in the web UI.
Axivion Suite continues to adapt to developers’ habits and their preferred tools. For example, in the new version, CMake setup has been simplified and is now part of the Project Setup Wizard. Users of CLion will be happy to learn that the new version of the Axivion Suite now also offers a plugin for this integrated development environment.
Further innovations of the latest version Axivion Suite 7.5 can be found in the compiler itself with improved support for the latest C++ standard (C++20) as well as in a simplified architecture configuration.
The Axivion Suite can be integrated into existing development environments, test infrastructures, and Continuous Integration processes. Axivion’s Professional Services Team helps make the integration on-site seamless and fast and provides practice-oriented user trainings for a fast productive use of the tool suite.
