Updated IDE Boasts Enhanced Safety Features

Several new capabilities are now available in version 2.7 of SCORE, a mixed-language, object-oriented integrated development environment (IDE) for creating and deploying safety-critical applications. The upgraded package includes enhanced safety for compiler and run-time multi-threading, run-time support for the VxWorks real-time OS and RTX Windows real-time extensions, and seamless integration with Wind River's Workbench IDE. Version 2.7 also supports the VectorCAST 4.0, the latest version of Vector Software's test tools.

SCORE offers optimizing compilers for Ada, C, Embedded C++, and Fortran77, all of which pass the ACATS, PlumHall, Perennial, and FCVS compiler validations suites. The IDE employs an intuitive GUI with industry-leading features like a color-coded source editor, project management support, and automated build/make utilities. SCORE's mixed-language, multi-window, symbolic debugger recognizes C/EC++, Ada, and Fortran syntax and expressions, and can view objects, expressions, call chains, execution traces, interspersed machine code, machine registers, and program stacks. The debugger supports full Ada-level debugging, and is non-intrusive, can debug at the source or machine level, and can be enabled without changing the generated code.


SCORE version 2.7 is available immediately.


Prices start at $5000.
