Silexica selects SuperTest to improve the quality of C language in their SLX tool suite

SuperTest improves accuracy of C Code compilers and decreases time to market

Amsterdam, Cologne and Köln – 14 March 2017 -  Solid Sands, the supplier of SuperTest™, the industry-leading and largest test and validation suite for C and C++ compilers and libraries, today announced that Silexica, the industry leader in multicore software design automation addressing complex, multicore platforms chose SuperTest to secure the quality of the C language in their tools.

The task of compiling C code continues to be plagued with challenges and, for Silexica, this problem increases significantly as their tools instrument, analyze and transform source code with a goal to uncover parallelism. This process must be performed with the utmost care to ensure that the semantics of the C code is not changed. SuperTest provides an anchor to the semantics of the C and C++ languages. Carefully constructed to verify the requirements of the language standard, SuperTest also contains many tests that not only deal with language semantics per se, but also with the analysis, transformation and code generation steps.

“Silexica’s tools address highly complex multi-core platforms providing unique challenges to SuperTest,” said Marcel Beemster, Solid Sands CTO. “We are proud to report that SuperTest successfully met this challenge, and now provides improved C code support to Silexica.”

“We were able to easily integrate the SuperTest compiler tests into our continuous integration pipeline, helping us to commit to the high-quality level of compiler analysis that our customers expect,” said Maximilian Odendahl, Silexica CEO. “Additionally SuperTest supports us in our ongoing commitment to further strengthen the robustness of our tools in the future."
