Ansys 2022 R2 puts a particular focus on safe and secure code generation of embedded control and HMI software, facilitating compliance with international standards for security (SEI CERT C), safety, and interoperability in A&D (DO-178C, ARINC 661, Khronos glTF™) and Automotive (AUTOSAR). Improvements to the Coverage Analysis Assistant further speed-up complex and time-consuming model and code coverage analysis activities.

Improvements include:

  • CERT C / Safe and Secure Code Generation
    • Generated code compliance with the SEI CERT C security coding Standard
    • Demonstrates that no security risks are associated to the SCADE generated code usage
  • Coverage Analysis Assistant Improvements
    • Speed-up complex and time-consuming coverage analysis activities
    • Detect and report uncoverable parts of the model
    • Generate justifications or test sequences for uncovered points
  • 3D Rendering for Embedded Displays
    • Import and render Kronos standard glTFTM 3D assets in SCADE Display
    • Allow embedded displays designers to include breakthrough rendering effects

Ansys embedded software solutions provide an array of powerful capabilities to help you develop safe and reliable software designs, faster.

  • Embedded Control Software Development
  • Man-Machine Interface Software
  • Certified Code Generation Across Industries
  • Model-Based Systems Engineering

From commercial aircraft to autonomous vehicles, the quality of the embedded software development process determines operational efficiency and safety. Certified code generators like the one in Ansys SCADE ensure that your embedded software will work as planned, the first time and every time.

Despite all their autonomy, today’s smart products still must interact with a human being occasionally through an intuitive, easy-to-use man-machine interface. You can optimize the usability and reliability of your interface using software development and certified code generation tools from Ansys.

Ansys code generators and verification tools have been qualified/certified at the highest level of safety across six market segments by more than 10 safety authorities worldwide, including: DO-178C up to Level A for aerospace and defense applications,  ISO 26262 up to ASIL D for automotive applications, IEC 61508 up to SIL 3 for transportation and industrial applications, EN 50128 up to SIL 3/4 for rail transportation applications, and IEC 60880 demonstrated compliance for nuclear applications by many nuclear safety authorities.

Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) is key to using systems models to define requirements, design, analysis, and verification and validation activities throughout the development cycle. It keeps track of these interdependencies with an evolving model instead of written design specifications, so you can be sure that all subsystems mesh together in a finely tuned whole, even as you continue to change the design.

This methodology handbook provides detailed explanations on how to fully satisfy ISO 26262:2018 safety-related requirements and recommendations with a SCADE model-based software development approach.


Efficient Development of Safe Railway Application Software with EN 50128/EN 50657

This methodology handbook provides detailed explanations on how to fully satisfy requirements of EN 50128:2011 (Software for communication, signaling and processing systems) and EN 50657:2017 (Software for rolling stock applications) with a SCADE model-based development approach to achieve safe and reliable software, while promoting an efficient model-based development and verification strategy.




Meggitt USA and Ansys

Engineering consulting company Meggitt USA works within a wide range of industries including aerospace. Requirements changes were causing costs and schedules to slip, so the company adopted ANSYS SCADE and ANSYS Simplorer for use during the product testing stage. The company recouped its investment in software after two programs and has increased productivity by a factor of three.


SKURKA Aerospace and Ansys

SKURKA Aerospace uses the ANSYS toolset for mechanical and magnetic design simulation, including system requirements validation and development through SCADE integration with Simplorer.


Ansys + Rail-Mil

Behind every complex component of an electrified system is a need for a smart and safe software controller that manages the performance and safety of the system over the lifetime of the component and the system.


Xmobots Group Unmanned Systems

Xmbots develops UAVs for civilian within a number of markets, including agriculture, environmental, security and energy. The Brazilian-based company must comply with aviation certification standards, like DO-178 when developing UAVs for the Brazilian market. This is why they chose to use SCADE as part of their development process. Their development cycle went from 2 years for an entirely hand-codded application to 6 months with SCADE.


Ansys + Volkswagen

Ansys and Volkswagen are working together to further improve the capabilities of the SCADE framework towards continuous integration and testing.


Ansys + Mecalac

Establishing industrial safety guidelines for the production and operation of heavy construction equipment is key in the prevention of human mishaps, including accidents, as well as damage to machines and materials during Mecalac’s day-to-day operations. Mecalac used SCADE to support a more efficient software development process that increased code quality and ISO safety compliance, resulting in significant time savings while increasing overall operational efficiency.
