Why Static Analysis?
Humans Make Mistakes.
For every 1,000 lines of code, there are between 15 and 50 defects1.
Static 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.

Which Flaws Do Static Analysis Tools Detect?
Coding Rule Violations. Compliance Issues. Security Flaws.
Static analysis inspects your source code — without running programs. It's also known as static code analysis and source code analysis. And tools that do this analysis are often known as code quality tools.
You can run source code 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, source 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.
Every Code Quality Tool Is Different
Code With Confidence With Helix QAC
Helix QAC is the best code quality 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.
