Why Static Analysis?
Static Analysis Ensures Code Quality and Security.
Humans make mistakes. For every 1,000 lines of code, there are between 15 and 50 defects1.
Static analysis — also called static code analysis — can identify those defects, vulnerabilities, and compliance issues as you code. That means you can locate vulnerable code and coding flaws right away. And you can fix them faster, for lower overall costs.

How Static Code Analysis Works
Static analysis inspects your source code — without running programs. So, you can use static analysis as soon as you’ve written code. And you can use it on legacy code to identify existing errors or establish a baseline.
The code is automatically scanned for vulnerabilities and flaws. And this solution can find errors missed by compilers and manual code reviews.
Typically, static code analysis solutions can generate thousands of diagnostics. But filters, suppressions, and baselines will help you target the most critical defects. So, you’ll be able to fix what needs to be fixed. And you’ll deliver a quality product on time.
Code With Confidence
Not All Static Code Analysis Solutions Are the Same.
Helix QAC is the best tool for static analysis in C and C++ programming languages. It's certified for functional safety compliance by SGS-TÜV, including IEC 61508, ISO 26262, EN 50128, IEC 60880, and IEC 62304.
This static code analyzer automatically enforces coding rules. That’s because our experts know coding standards inside and out. They helped write the MISRA coding standard, created High Integrity C++, and contributed to the AUTOSAR coding standard.
With Helix QAC, you get the deepest possible analysis of code to prevent, detect, and eliminate defects. You’ll find flaws and violations that others miss. And you’ll be able to code with confidence.
