LDRA Selects FTD Infocom to Distribute Cutting-Edge Point Products Across India

LDRA, the leader in standards compliance, automated software verification, source code analysis, and test tools, has named FTD Infocom Pvt. Ltd. as its official India distributor of the LDRA point tools LDRAunit, LDRArules, and LDRAcover. LDRA based its selection of FTD Infocom on the company’s comprehensive knowledge of these tools, its proven leadership in distributing other products for the development and testing of embedded software, and its expert sales, support, and application teams.

“Increasingly, embedded developers in India use certified systems to help mitigate risk and maintain software quality,” said Ian Hennell, Operations Director of LDRA. “But like their counterparts worldwide, these developers face challenges in implementing the stringent requirements for such systems into established software-development cycles. These challenges are more easily surmounted when developers have access to local experts familiar with best practices and qualified to guide implementation in the developers’ first language. We are pleased to have FTD Infocom extend the reach of the LDRA team.”

As a result of the partnership, the advantages of LDRA certification technology will become more easily available to India-based companies that develop embedded solutions for safety-, mission-, and security-critical applications. Such advantages include what renowned industry analyst Jack Ganssle called the “staggering” cost savings available through the auto-generation capabilities of point products like LDRAunit, a product whose announcement he hailed as one of the year’s “most important” milestones in embedded technologies.

“Developers targeting the safety-critical market in particular will benefit from our teamwork with LDRA,” said Prabhakar Srivatsan V, Chief Executive Officer of FTD Infocom. “Through the partnership, we will offer a powerful combination of world-class certification tools and local support, enabling developers to deliver solutions compliant with the most stringent of safety standards. For this reason alone, we are thrilled to have been selected as India’s official distributor of the LDRA point tools.”

LDRAunit, LDRArules, and LDRAcover are part of a family of certification technologies emerging from LDRA’s 40 years of experience in helping customers achieve certification readiness. These tools support certification objectives at all levels of design assurance:

  • LDRAunit supports automated test generation and management with sophisticated analysis that helps developers to eliminate manual scripting and minimize overall test effort. LDRAunit auto-generates test-case documentation, including pass/fail and regression analysis reports, and simplifies the viewing of statement coverage, branch coverage, and MC/DC-coverage results.
  • LDRArules offers standards-based rule checking that confirms adherence to company and industry coding standards. With the help of call graphs, flow graphs, and code review reports, the tool clearly demonstrates code quality, fault detection, and security vulnerabilities.
  • LDRAcover demonstrates application-testing completeness and provides test-planning documents that help developers achieve the desired level of coverage, ranging from procedure and function calls to safety-critical modified condition/decision coverage.
