Static code analysis for TI MSP430 MCUs

IAR Systems, a provider of embedded development tools, has uncloaked its latest product innovation C-STAT that claims to deliver powerful static analysis and is available fully integrated in the high-performance development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench for TI MSP430 MCUs.

Important concerns for embedded developers today include adherence to coding standards as well as increased application complexity that might interfere with code quality. Using a flexible static code analysis tool such as C-STAT addresses both these issues by detecting potential code errors in complex applications and by ensuring compliance with coding standards applicable for embedded applications in various segments.


C-STAT executes fast and provides analysis results directly in the IAR Embedded Workbench IDE, noted the company. It checks compliance with rules as defined by coding standards including MISRA C:2004, MISRA C++:2008 and MISRA C:2012, as well as hundreds of rules based on for example the Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) and CERT C/C++. Users can easily select which rule-set or which individual rules to check the code against. The tool detects potential code errors including for example memory leaks, access violations, arithmetic errors and array and string overruns. By finding such errors early, developers can take full control of their code and lower the risk of breaking the budget and deadline for a project.

IAR Embedded Workbench includes a highly-optimising C/C++ compiler and the comprehensive C-SPY Debugger in a user-friendly IDE. C-STAT is available for IAR Embedded Workbench for MSP430 from version 6.30, as well as for IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM with support for more than 3,000 ARM-based devices. All products are sold with access to IAR Systems' technical support available in multiple time zones.
