Ithaca, NY, March 05, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- GrammaTech, Inc., manufacturer of the most in-depth source-code analysis technology, today announced that it has expanded its leadership in the medical device vertical market. CodeSonar® has been selected by major U.S., European and Asia/PAC manufacturers because it is able to detect a larger percentage of critical defects in C/C++ code than any other static-analysis tool. For medical device manufacturers, this translates to providing the highest level of reliability.
While CodeSonar was first adopted for avionics applications, medical organizations have been using CodeSonar to analyze medical-device software over the last four years. An early adopter was the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In their project, the FDA used CodeSonar to perform a forensic analysis on a fielded medical device that failed. Today, CodeSonar continues to be used by the FDA.
CodeSonar is used by some of the industry’s largest medical device companies for developing products that span a wide range of applications, including radiation therapy, cardiac resuscitation, respirators, ultrasound imaging, X-Ray imaging, MRI imaging, arthroscopy, computed tomography, cardiovascular applications, blood glucose monitoring, patient diagnostics, and high-speed cell sorting.
GrammaTech has also seen growth in professional services centered on ensuring medical device reliability. “CodeSonar's powerful static analysis capabilities and open API are leading major medical device companies to request customizations to CodeSonar that address domain-specific checking needs. For example, we recently completed some work for one of the largest global medical device manufacturers. The company knew that GrammaTech offers very in-depth technology for program path analysis, so they asked GrammaTech to create a set of custom checkers targeted at ensuring reliability of their multithreaded code,” said Paul Anderson, GrammaTech’s VP of Engineering.
CodeSonar is a sophisticated static-analysis tool that performs a whole-program, interprocedural analysis on C/C++ code and identifies complex programming bugs that can result in system crashes, memory corruption and other serious problems. CodeSonar has long been the software-analysis tool of choice for embedded developers working on mission-critical applications such as satellites, avionics, industrial controls and medical devices. Companies outside the safety-critical space are also adopting CodeSonar to improve software reliability and security. This includes organizations developing software for wireless devices, networking equipment and consumer electronics.
GrammaTech’s static-analysis tools are used worldwide by startups, Fortune 500 companies, educational institutions, and government agencies. The staff includes 12 PhD-level experts in programming languages and program analysis. The company has offices in New York and California.
