Rogue Wave Software Klocwork selected as Cambridge Medical Robotics’ static code analysis tool

Louisville, CO7/12/2016

Rogue Wave Software, the largest independent provider of cross-platform software development tools and embedded components, announces that Cambridge Medical Robotics Limited, Cambridge, UK (CMR) has selected Klocwork as its static code analysis tool.

Dr. Paul Roberts, chief operating officer at Cambridge Medical Robotics commented “The decision to select Klocwork is an important part of our drive to build safe, secure, and high quality into our surgical robotic products. Using Klocwork, we’re able to develop and produce robotic systems containing software that has been thoroughly tested, increasing the confidence of both practitioners and patients.”

Ian McLeod, chief product officer at Rogue Wave, added “With medical devices becoming more complex, with very large codebases, the industry is moving towards standards compliance to reduce the possibility of occurrence of harm.”

“We worked closely with SDC Systems, a Rogue Wave partner, to demonstrate the benefits of Klocwork to CMR in the development of their leading edge product for the medical device industry. We are confident that, in safety critical medical devices, Klocwork static code analysis removes doubt and ensures faultless code through earlier error detection during the development process.”

Klocwork is used extensively in safety-critical industries supporting the globally-recognized MISRA coding standards, now a mandatory requirement in automotive systems. MISRA is now being adopted for safety critical systems by companies in the medical industry and CMR will employ Klocwork to ensure that its code satisfies both MISRA C++:2008 and MISRA C:2012.
