Embedded Software

ANSYS® SCADE provides engineers with a model-based embedded software development and a simulation environment with a built-in automatic code generator to accelerate embedded software development projects. ANSYS® SCADE solutions are being used to graphically design, verify and automatically generate critical systems and software applications with high dependability requirements.

Certified Code Generation across Industries

ANSYS® SCADE code generators have been qualified/certified at the highest level of safety across six market segments by more than ten safety authorities worldwide,


  • DO-178C up to Level A – Aerospace and Defence Applications by FAA, EASA, Transport Canada and ANAC
  • IEC 61508 up to SIL 3 – Transportation and Industrial Applications by TÜV SÜD
  • EN 50128 up to SIL 3/4 – Rail Transportation Applications by TÜV SÜD, EBA and Certifer
  • IEC 60880 demonstrated compliance – Nuclear Applications by nuclear safety authorities
  • ISO 26262 up to ASIL D – Automotive Applications by TÜV SÜD

SCADE users report the following development and verification cost improvements:

  • alignment of the design process according to safety standard objectives
  • reduction of development costs by 50 percent, on average
  • acceleration of certification by a factor of two

  • Since the introduction of ANSYS, more students are using first principles and FEA to validate their designs. This year, more than 60% of the projects were using FEA as a standard approach for numerical calculation. This number shows the huge impact ANSYS, had on University of Pretoria. FEA is not anymore a specialised tool for few users but a standard engineering tool easily integrated in the design process.

  • At Aerospace, we have successfully used the ANSYS suite of tools to design high-performance gas turbine engines. Throughout this program, Qfinsoft provided valuable support and assistance to accelerate the development of our models. Their accessibility, short-turn around times and willingness to go beyond what is expected make them an effective partner on our projects.
