Award recognizes the most cutting edge product or service for embedded software developers and system engineers
NATICK, Mass. — Sep 23, 2010 — VDC Research, the market intelligence and strategy consulting firm for the embedded community, named Klocwork the winner of their annual best in show Embeddy software award at the 2010 Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) in Boston, Massachusetts. The company also granted a hardware award at the show.
Klocwork was presented with the software award for enhancements made to their static analysis engine, Klocwork Truepath™, which now provides capabilities that help embedded software engineers address the challenges associated with multicore and multiprocessor software development.
"Klocwork is bringing a tool to market that not only identifies concurrency defects arising when running parallel processes, but also provides insight into potential endian incompatibility issues arriving when engineering teams attempt to port existing software assets to new hardware architectures," said Chris Rommel, Senior Analyst for VDC’s Embedded Software Practice. "These features should become increasingly valuable to the engineering community as more embedded devices integrate new multicore and/or multiprocessor architectures."
"We are honoured to receive this award, which recognizes Klocwork’s commitment to providing the necessary tools to satisfy the evolving needs of software developers," said Todd Landry, Senior Product Manager, Klocwork. "Multicore and multiprocessor devices are also growing in demand, and the enhancements we’ve made recently to our source code analysis tool suite will help address the critical issues developers encounter in these next-generation architectures."
The Embeddy award winners were given an overall rating score of 1 to 5 and were selected based on the following specific criteria: corporate, technological and industry significance and availability. The identification of a VDC Research Embeddy award winner does not constitute an endorsement by VDC Research of any vendor, product or service.
