Status of MISRA AC documents March 2014

Post by david ward » Tue Mar 11, 2014 12:04 pm

The MISRA Autocode (AC) suite of documents will be undergoing a refresh in the near future to bring them up to date and align them with the new MISRA branding and other MISRA documents. MISRA AC GMG and MISRA AC SLSF will be reviewed and updated.

Based on the experience of MISRA AC contributors in using the current documents, the number and organization of documents is also up for consideration. In particular, it is believed that the code generation specific layer of guideline documents, where MISRA AC TL sits and where a MISRA AC EC offering could sit, is better supported by tool vendors themselves; the frequency of updates to auto-code generation tools has proved too high for a user-based body such as MISRA to keep track of, and it is in the interest of the tool vendors to provide guidelines directly to support their customers in meeting their respective industry software development standards.

MISRA AC TL is now seven years old and far removed from the current version of the tool offered by its vendor. This document will be deprecated and no longer supported by MISRA from 1 June 2014.

MISRA AC AGC will remain available and supported for legacy users of MISRA C:2004. It should be noted that the current version MISRA C:2012 integrates requirement for automatically-generated C code.

I would like to add, that dSPACE has since updated the "dSPACE Modeling Guidelines for TargetLink" [1] to cover the topics previously addressed by the MISRA AC TL document. Therefore you are encouraged to use them instead of MISRA AC TL.
