TCS Embedded Code Analyzer Assists Automotive and Other High Tech Industry Firms
Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, today, introduced TCS Embedded Code Analyzer (TCS ECA), a new solution that enhances the software assurance lifecycle for automotive, high tech and other industries that develop products, which rely on embedded software. TCS ECA has been developed by TCS in collaboration with Nissan Motor Co., Ltd (Nissan) in Japan and is available from distribution partner Yokogawa Digital Computer Corporation.
Embedded software is the center-point of a vast range of products manufactured across industries and quality software code is a necessity to ensure these products operate properly at all times. TCS ECA has been designed to combine TCS’ leadership in engineering software solutions and services with Nissan’s expertise in automotive software. TCS ECA is the most scalable product of its kind in the market today and can easily be customized to suit specific needs across industries.
TCS ECA helps manufacturers accelerate product development, produce more reliable products, reduce time-to-market and lower costs attributed to software failure. It helps the embedded software developer community improve the software quality and better comply with key regulations, such as MISRA-C and ISO 26262 in the automotive industry. TCS ECA automatically detects the coding defects, which are difficult to identify through standard testing and review processes and are often very expensive to locate and fix if not detected early in the software development cycle.
“Delivering high quality Nissan products, including the software embedded aboard our vehicles, is always a top priority. The latest version of the TCS ECA will help us address all pre-delivery defects in the early stages of development, with the ultimate goal of achieving zero defects,” said Masaaki Miyashita, manager of the electronics engineering development division in Nissan.
“The TCS ECA product leverages over 15 years of research by Tata Research Design and Development Centre (TRDDC)combined with Nissan’s expertise and inputs on industry specific issues, resulting in a leading product that is ready to meet crucial industry needs,” said Regu Ayyaswamy, Global Head and Vice President, Engineering and Industrial Services, TCS. “We are thankful to Nissan, Nissan’s suppliers and the alliance partners for their trust in TCS and the TCS ECA product.”
“These days, ‘functional safety’ is a key word not only in the automotive field but also in the medical equipments, robots, factory automation, transportation and other equipment fields. Yokogawa Digital Computer Corporation is excited to announce the availability of TCS Embedded Code Analyzer,” said Toyohiko Furuta, President, Yokogawa Digital Computer Corporation. “TCS ECA has accumulated know-how of advanced quality assurance in the software development in theautomotive field, and this can be applied to a wide range of applications, making this new tool a great help for our customers in their development of new products.”
“We take great pride in launching the TCS ECA product in Japan, where TCS has been making major investments in developing services and solutions geared toward helping enable Japanese companies to enhance and expand their business into new global markets and opportunities,” said Tv Kamalak Kannan, President and Representative Director, TCS Japan Limited. “TCS ECA is a great example of the work TCS is doing with key clients and partners in Japan and together with Nissan and YDC, we expect, TCS ECA to enhance the way the automobile, manufacturing, telecom and other industries build embedded system products, in Japan and worldwide.”
