Did you know ECLAIR spares you completely from the configuration effort related to the toolchain?

One of the notable features of ECLAIR consists in the fact that the hardest part of the configuration, namely the adaptation to the compiler toolchain and the particular language dialect(s) used in the project, is fully automatic: ECLAIR detects, without user intervention, all the implementation-defined behaviours, including predefined macros, taking into account all options given to the compiler, assembler, linker and librarian.

White Paper: Jumpstarting MISRA compliance via the integration of static analysis into Open Source CI systems: best practices and key elements from

Over the last two years has integrated ECLAIR, BUGSENG’s MISRA tooling, into TrustedFirwmare’s Open CI as part of the validation efforts for both TF-A and TF-M. These verification efforts provide additional confidence in regards to Functional Safety and Security for users of these projects.

Did you know ECLAIR 3.13.0 comes with full GitHub support?

ECLAIR 3.13.0 supports Sarif and can be integrated seamlessly into the typical GitHub workflow: ECLAIR automatically analyzes pull requests, adding comments to the corresponding thread so that developers are immediately informed about code criticalities and perform all the required changes before the merge. Open IMUtility project to get an idea of how it works.


Did you know ECLAIR can enforce software architectural constraints?

You know that defining the right software architecture is probably the most important step towards a successful project. Strict adherence to the software architectural constraints is then essential: What if a programmer bypasses the hardware abstraction layer? What if another one unknowingly introduces a dependency that may cause a highly critical component to fail as a consequence of a failure in a less critical or non critical component?

On February 1st, 2023, Jen Easterly and Eric Goldstein published an article on the Foreign Affairs journal titled: "Stop Passing the Buck on Cybersecurity: Why Companies Must Build Safety Into Tech Products." Jen Easterly is the Director of CISA, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency at the Department of Homeland Security of the United States; Eric Goldstein is Executive Assistant Director at CISA.

BUGSENG Consulting Services – selected by the Zephyr Project to move Zephyr towards MISRA Compliance


The Zephyr® Project, hosted by the Linux Foundation, aims to build a safe, secure and flexible real-time operating system (RTOS) for space-constrained devices. With more than 1200 contributors, Zephyr is one of the fastest growing open source and broadly contributed RTOS projects of its kind. It currently supports more than 350 boards, more than any other RTOS.

ECLAIR 3.6.0 has been released


ECLAIR version 3.6.0 contains numerous enhancements and some bug fixes:

  • Support has been added for MISRA C:2012, Revision 1;
  • Support has been added for the BARR-C:2018 coding standard.

Also, due to many improvements to the checkers and associated tools:

  • the number of false positives has been reduced;
  • the number of false caution reports has been reduced and some true caution reports have been converted to violation reports;
  • the report messages have been improved.

ECLAIR Qualification Kits have been released


After three years of intensive research and development, we are proud to announce the release of ECLAIR Qualification Kits.

ECLAIR Qualification Kits provide direct, explicit support for several functional safety standards such as CENELEC EN 50128 (railway), ECSS-Q-ST-80C (space), IEC 61508 (industrial), IEC 62304 (medical), ISO 26262 (automotive), RTCA DO-178C/DO-330 (aerospace) and for all major MISRA coding standards.
