Media Alert: ARM Enhances Safety-Related Tools Offering with TÜV Certification for the ARM Compiler

September 30, 2014

Where: ARM® TechCon, Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA, 95054.


ARM will announce TÜV SÜD certification of the industry-standard ARM Compiler for safety-related software development. The TÜV certification enables customers to apply the ARM Compilation Tools for safety-related development up to SIL3 (IEC 61508) or ASILD (ISO 26262) without further qualification activities. The TÜV certification complements the ARM Compiler Qualification Kit, which contains the Safety Manual, Development Process Document, Test Report, and Defect Report.

The certified compiler and ARM Compiler Qualification Kit are available now to customers of the ARM Keil® MDK-ARM Professional Edition v5.12 and the DS-5 Development Studio Ultimate Edition v5.19 at no additional cost. Furthermore, extended maintenance is available for the certified compiler as part the standard product support and maintenance.


ARM-based platforms are gaining more significance for applications with functional safety requirements. The ARM Compiler is well positioned for this market, being mature, widely used and professionally developed. Projects requiring safety certification have distinct requirements for development tools and the TÜV certificate, along with the Qualification Kit guidelines and reports, provides evidence of compliance to these requirements.
