At the heart of the LDRA tool suite is LDRA Testbed, providing the core static and dynamic analysis engines for both host and embedded software. LDRA Testbed enforces compliance with coding standards and provides clear visibility of software flaws that might typically pass through the standard build and test process to become latent problems. In addition, extensive test effectiveness feedback is provided through structural coverage analysis reporting facilities which support the requirements of the DO-178B standard up to and including Level-A.
What makes Testbed the best tool for static and dynamic code analysis?
LDRA Testbed enforces compliance with coding standards and clearly indicates software flaws that might otherwise pass through the standard build and test process to become latent problems. Competitive static analysis and dynamic code analysis tools are based on commercial parsing technology, leaving most tool vendors at the mercy of a core technology that’s outside their control. LDRA’s proprietary parsing engine allows us to quickly incorporate new analysis techniques to meet changing standards requirements, so you’ll always be at the leading edge of new and improved analysis technologies.
With the LDRA Testbed as your foundation, you have complete flexibility to tailor the tool suite for your specific needs. We offer a full range of software testing core components and optional modules, as well as software certification and consulting services, so you only pay for exactly what you need.
- LDRA Testbed was the first tool to be used for certification to the Federal Aviation Authority’s FAA DO-178B standard for both airborne and ground-based systems
- LDRA has helped more than 200 projects achieve DO-178 certification, and the majority of these meet the most stringent Level A requirements. No other competitive product comes close to having this experience and success
- LDRA Testbed is the only tool that enables static rule checking, complexity, and dynamic analysis for MISRA C compliance
- Independent studies have shown that use of the LDRA Testbed reduced reported bugs by up to 75% and improved testing efficiency by 46%
