Phaedrus Systems has been involved with standards from the late 1970's and has always worked in environments where standards were significant. Since the late 1990's members of Phaedrus Systems have sat on National and International standards panels and committees.
MISRA, under the auspices of MIRA started with guidelines for automotive embedded systems. They have now expandedto become a very successful set of standards for safety critical embedded systems globally. > Link to
The main standards body in the UK is BSI, British Standards Institute. It is under their auspices the C, C++ and High Integrity groups work. BSI also works with the IEC for 61508. > Link to
RTCA/DO-178B was developed by the commercial avionics industry to establish software guidelines for avionics software developers. The first version, DO-178 covered the basic avionics software lifecycle. The second version, DO-178A, added avionics software criticality level details and emphasized software component testing to obtain quality.The current version, DO-178B, evolved avionics software quality via added planning, continuous quality monitoring, and testing in real-world conditions. > Link to
The US Joint Strike Fighter Project is for a military aircraft with a vast amount of software. Therefore they produced a C++ coding guide for for safety critical work. > Link to
Quality Embedded Systems Techniques is a series of documents on all aspects of embedded development. The series started in the 1990's and some of the papers are on their third or fourth revision, so they are always up to date as the industry changes. However they are firmly based on Engineering Principals not the latest fashion . > Link to
