Synopsys Presentations at Embedded World

Tuesday, February 24, 10:30-11:00am, Session 05/I
Open Source Software Quality Surpasses Proprietary Code
The Coverity Scan Open Source Report has become a widely accepted standard for measuring the state of open source quality. During the past eight years, the Coverity Scan service has analyzed several hundreds of millions of lines of code from more than 1,500 open source projects – including C/C++ projects such as NetBSD, FreeBSD, LibreOffice and Linux. The service has helped developers find and fix more than 94,000 defects since 2006. Nearly 50,000 defects were fixed in 2013 alone – the largest single number of defects fixed in a single year. More than 11,000 of these defects were fixed by the four largest projects in the service: NetBSD, FreeBSD, LibreOffice and Linux. This presentation discusses the most recent findings of the analysis of 750 million lines of open source software, 700 open source C/C++ projects and an anonymous sample of enterprise projects.

Best Practices for the Deployment of Virtual Development Kits for Software Development
The use of virtual prototypes to accelerate software development is growing in the electronics industry. Virtual prototypes enable the development, integration and test of embedded software to start earlier and more efficiently by removing the dependencies on hardware availability. For the use of such technology to expand and for companies to achieve the proven benefits, the industry needs to share best practices and experience. This presentation will focus on two aspects: 1) provide the audience with an overview of virtual prototypes and related technologies and 2) explore the myths and realities associated with deploying a virtual prototype based environment. We will use real life examples to support this look at best practices.

Thursday, February 26, 11:00-11:30am, Session 18/I
Safety and Security – How to Improve System Software Testing for Safety and Security Critical Systems
Today, most of our lives and infrastructure are managed through connected electronic devices. The software content of these devices is exploding to meet the demand for new functionality. Connectivity and increasing content does not come without challenges when it comes to safety critical devices that must be highly secure, such as the devices found in automotive, industrial, aerospace and medical applications. Development teams focused on such devices require new tools and methodologies that enable earlier and faster testing while allowing for broader coverage. In this presentation we will focus on the use of virtual development environments to enable software and system software testing to start well in advance of test bench availability and deliver better debugging and analysis capabilities. We will provide an overview of the challenges and solution using a CAN-based virtual development environment built with a virtual development kit of microcontrollers. We will focus specifically on how the ease of injecting fault into these systems helps to test for safety and security.

Thursday, February 26, 12:00-12:30pm, Session 23/I
Optimizing Static Source Code Analysis for Mission-Critical Embedded Software Applications
This presentation outlines how static analysis has been taken to the next level to ensure various levels of coding standard compliance: language compliance, predictable execution, defensive coding, code clarity and MISRA rules. The majority of coding rules that have been implemented are targeting the development of mission-critical software written in the C programming language. They have been focused for the development of embedded software which generally operates under strict resource constraints. In most cases achieving full compliance with standards did not have a measurable impact on schedule or cost for newly written code. The trade-off was slightly different for heritage code which was developed before the standard went into effect.

Addressing the Needs of IoT Applications with the ARC EM Processor IP Family
More data, more sensors, faster response, more connectivity, and smarter user interfaces make today’s Internet of Things (IoT) devices more fun and easy to use. But these features all come at the price of more processor performance, silicon area, power, and heat. Device manufacturers building components and solutions for IoT applications, especially wearable and battery-powered devices, face a performance/power paradox that is driving the need for a new type of low-power processor to support input/output from all manner of sources while running a real-time operating system and maintaining minimal power consumption. The paradox is right at the point where the power requirement for the application exceeds the specifications of the battery, packaging, or both. This presentation will introduce the ARC EM processor family as an efficient, configurable, and extensible low-power processor, that can address the needs of these complex IoT applications.
