The integration of GrammaTech CodeSonar with Wind River Workbench enables software developers to annotate and resolve the bugs and software vulnerabilities that CodeSonar highlights without leaving the Wind River Workbench development environment, thereby significantly boosting productivity.
Supporting the native Wind River VxWorks® real-time operating system as well as the POSIX API, CodeSonar provides advanced, whole program static analysis of application software and device drivers running in either kernel or user mode. For developers of complex Internet of Things (IoT) devices, CodeSonar delivers a must-have capability as it finds security and quality problems as well as problems specific to multi-core development such as deadlocks, livelocks, resource starvation, and race conditions. CodeSonar identifies bugs that can result in system crashes, unexpected behavior, and security breaches, reducing the risk of shipping costly, brand-damaging defects. It finds these bugs during the development phase, before software is tested, thereby saving cost and time.
