Barr Group's Embedded C Coding Standard was developed to help firmware engineers minimize defects in embedded systems. Unlike the majority of coding standards, this standard focuses on practical rules that keep bugs out - including techniques designed to improve the maintainability and portability of embedded software. The rules in this coding standard include a set of guiding principles, as well as specific naming conventions and other rules for the use of data types, functions, preprocessor macros, variables, and other C language constructs. Individual rules that have been demonstrated to reduce or eliminate certain types of defects are highlighted. The BARR-C standard is distinct from, yet compatible with, the MISRA C Guidelines for Use of the C Language in Critical Systems. Programmers can easily combine rules from the two standards as needed.

Chapter 15. Embedded Software Quality, Integration and Testing Techniques
Author: Mark Pitchford
Publisher: Elsevier Inc. Chapters
Category: Technology & Engineering
State of the art techniques and best practices in the development of embedded software apply not only to high-integrity devices (such as those for safety-critical applications like aircraft flight controllers, car braking systems or medical devices), but also to lesser-integrity applications when the need to optimize the effectiveness of the available test time and budget demands that pragmatic decisions should be made. To complement this multitude of software test techniques there is a similar plethora of test tools available to automate them. These tools are commonplace in the development of safety-critical applications, but elsewhere not everyone has the budget to buy all, or indeed any, of them. Of course, the providers of these tools would advocate the purchase of each and every one of them, so how can a limited budget best be allocated? And where no budget exists, how can similar principles be applied to provide confidence that the finished item is of adequate quality? In addressing these issues not only are the concepts behind the techniques presented, but also some “case study” software code examples to drill a little deeper and illustrate how some of them are implemented in practice.
