Mission and safety-critical control systems run on software created in SCADE

ANSYS SCADE Suite is a model-based development environment for critical embedded software. With native integration of the formally defined Scade language, SCADE Suite is the integrated design environment for critical applications including requirements management, model-based design, simulation, verification, qualifiable/certified code generation and interoperability with other development tools and platforms.

Where to use SCADE Suite
SCADE Suite is used to design critical software, such as flight control and engine control systems, landing gear systems, automatic pilots, power and fuel management systems, cockpit displays, rail interlocking systems and signaling, automatic train operation, computer based train control, emergency braking systems, overspeed protection, train vacancy detection, nuclear power plant controls, ADAS, battery management systems, electronic power steering in cars, and many other aerospace, railway, energy, automotive and industrial applications.

Tailored for critical applications
SCADE Suite drastically reduces project certification costs by simplifying critical control application design and automating verification, qualifiable/certified code generation and documentation generation. SCADE Suite KCG Code Generator is qualifiable as a development tool under DO-178B level A or as a DO-330 TQL-1 tool under DO-178C. It is qualified under ISO 26262:2011 at ASIL D and C and certified under IEC 61508 2010 at T3/SIL 3 and EN 50128:2011 at T3/SIL 3/4.

SCADE Suite KCG Certification Kits provide the following materials required by the respective standard guidelines for the certification authorities:

  • Tool qualification plan (TQP)
  • Tool operational requirements (TOR)
  • Tool accomplishment summary (TAS) or safety case (SC)
  • Compliance analysis to certification standards
  • Software installation procedure (SIP)
  • Tool configuration index (TCI)
  • Other standard-specific documents

DO-178B and DO-178C Certification Plans for SCADE Suite applications provide a set of generic plans supporting the certification of applications developed with SCADE Suite at levels A and B.
