Altium has released the first standalone version of its Safety Checker tool, which earlier was released in summer 2015 as an integrated utility within its TASKING VX-toolset for TriCore™ version v6.0r1. The Safety Checker assists developers with safety-related analysis of application code and providing evidence for Freedom From Interference (FFI), for example for certification of automotive software applications conform the ISO 26262 functional safety standard.
The integrated version within the TriCore™ toolset uses the output of the v6.0 TriCore™ C compiler and Linker, whereas the standalone variant has plain C source code as input and therefor also support code for other compilers, including the other C compilers from the VX-toolset for TriCore™, like for the PCP, GTM/MCS, HSM and SCR cores. The necessary files to configure the standalone Safety Checker for the other AURIX™ cores are available for downloading from the support web page. Anyone interested in reading in more detail about the capabilities of the standalone Safety Checker can visit the same support page for the User Guide. For a general overview for TASKING Safety Checker incl. workflow, uses cases, ROI, please download the TASKING Safety Checker Overview.
Users of the TASKING TriCore compiler release v6.0r1 can check its User Guide for further details in chapter 8.10, where the functionality is presented as “Integrity Check Utility”.
