This webinar is in CEST Time.

In some of our last webinars we talked about tool qualification and the role of the compiler in functional safety projects. Now we will offer again an outstanding webinar regarding the compiler qualification in functional safety projects. Compiler qualification simplifies and speeds up application development by easing application testing requirements. Compiler qualification has many other benefits as well. Setting up compiler qualification in-house provides flexibility in your choice of the compiler and how you use it. Besides that, it provides peace of mind - compilers are themselves five-million lines extremely complex programs that perform a crucial step in application creation.The ISO 26262 standard provides the requirements and actions of the tool qualification process. We will walk through the standard and discuss how it is applied to compilers. The standard offers four methods for tool qualification but as we will see, not all are suitable for compilers.

With this presentation, we will give you an overview of the benefits of compiler qualification and of what is actually involved in the process of compiler qualification according to ISO 26262.
