Hitex Development Tools GmbH has announced the MDK-ARM 5.12 development kit that claims to provide a pre-certified compiler for safety-relevant designs. The latest version of the tool kit also supports, besides all Cortex and ARM 7/9 MCUs, the Cortex-M7. It also flaunts additional features to support various project management tasks, added the company.

The compiler is certified by TUEV SUED and thus facilitates developing processes that have to meet the requirements of safety standards. For instance, standards such as IEC 61508 and ISO 26262 demand the proof that the compiler in use meets the according safety standards. Developers abide to these rules if they follow the instructions of the ARM Compiler Qualifications Kit that comes with the MDK-ARM Professional Edition at no extra cost. The kit contains a safety manual, a test report and a defect report for the description of the compiler validation. This tool set enables developers to implement safety requirements efficiently and without the need to re-qualify the tools.

The TUEV certificate and the respective report are accepted as a proof for the conformance of the Compiler Qualification Kit for safety levels up to SIL 3 (IEC 61508), or ASIL D (ISO 26262).
