Wind River Diab Compiler Accelerates Development for Vehicle Systems

ISMANING, Germany — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 23, 2011Wind River, a world leader in embedded and mobile software, today announced that Continental, a leading automotive industry supplier, is using Wind River Diab Compiler for its drive and vehicle control systems, including braking, engine control and energy management. Wind River Diab Compiler allows Continental to centralize development data across 48 of its sites around the world, resulting in cost savings of more than 30 percent. Wind River Diab Compiler helps customers meet the requirements of ISO 26262, a new functional safety standard for road vehicles set to take effect in 2011.

Wind River Diab Compiler is an operating-system-agnostic tool suite that includes a C/C++ compiler, an assembler, a linker, ANSI C and C++ libraries, and an instruction-set simulator. DIAB compiler technology, on which Wind River Diab Compiler is based, is widely used in the most demanding and mission-critical applications, such as automotive under-the-hood, industrial, and aerospace and defense systems. Given the critical nature of quality to the automotive industry, every release of the Wind River Diab Compiler is tested for conformance and performance with more than half a million test cases.

“With the increasing complexity of automotive electronic systems and rise of new safety standards such as ISO 26262, software quality is more important than ever. Automotive leaders such as Continental rely on Wind River’s expertise in safety-critical standards and development tools,” said Alexander Kocher, general manager for automotive solutions at Wind River. “Wind River Diab Compiler is the most reliable and mature compiler in the industry, proven in thousands of designs and millions of devices across a wide variety of processor architectures.”

“The devices we are working on today are more sophisticated than they were a few years ago,” said Dr. Udo Judaschke, director of PLM systems, software and verification at Continental Automotive IT. “It is essential for us to maintain close relationships with industry leaders such as Wind River to make sure we stay at the leading edge of automotive technology, functionality and safety.”

Wind River works closely with automotive customers to ensure Wind River Diab Compiler is optimized to provide compliance with ISO 26262. The new standard is an adaptation of the Functional Safety standard IEC 61508 for automotive electric/electronic systems. ISO 26262 applies to functional safety aspects of the development process, including such activities as requirements specification, design, implementation, integration, verification, validation and configuration.
