High Integrity C++ (HIC++) reached its 10th year milestone. To mark the event, a new major update was published, Version 4.0. This expands the scope to cover C++11 and beyond. The aim is to allow for flexibility and enable the creation of easy to maintain programs by eliminating the issues that arise from compiler differences, programmer style, or confusing language.
Major car manufacturers like Audi, BMW, Porsche, and Volvo, collaborated to develop the Automotive SPICE (Software Process Improvement and Capability Determination) framework. You can’t develop without compliance to Automotive SPICE these days. But often times the requirements (ISO/IEC 15504) are interpreted differently as this framework was developed to suit a broad range of applications. And showing compliance for an audit can place a large amount of overhead and burden on the shoulders of engineers.
Vecow introduces its ABP-2000 1.91 GHz Intel Quad Core Atom E3800 fanless advanced box PC series that can withstand harsh environmental conditions. Its advanced graphics capabilities also make it suitable for display and graphics-intensive Internet of Things, in-vehicle infotainment (IVI), and M2M applications.
