We are delighted to share an exciting advancement resulting from our collaboration with Arm. This introduces the seamless integration of Cantata, the pinnacle of our two-decade commitment to quality, into Arm’s esteemed online catalogue.  The Cantata entry can be seen here and contains information about the tool and its use with Arm®-basedhardware and software solutions.

Cantata offers an unparalleled solution for C/C++ unit and integration testing and safety standards certification. Endorsed with the highest integrity level certification by SGS TüV Sarr, Cantata now integrates seamlessly with  cutting-edge software development tools and hardware from Arm

These integrations enable developers in safety-critical embedded software to verify their code directly on Arm® Cortex®-A, Cortex®-M, and Cortex®-R-based hardware platforms.

Navigating the challenges of functional safety standards in embedded software is demanding. Cantata rises to the challenge by offering comprehensive test case generation, code coverage analysis, requirements traceability, diagnostics, and reporting. The synergy between Cantata and Arm Development Studio is facilitated through Eclipse-ready plugins. Moreover, a dedicated Eclipse test project creator streamlines integration with Arm®Keil® μVision.

Cantata stands certified to the highest Safety Integrity Levels (SILs) across major functional safety software standards like ISO 26262, IEC 61508, IEC 62304, EN 50128, and IEC 60880. This integration leverages Arm’s hardware and software potential while simplifying the journey toward dependable and secure embedded software solutions.
