Regarding the ISO 26262 Automotive Functional Safety Certification of our Tools

Third-party certification organization TUV SUD granted our tools certification for the ISO 26262 automotive functional safety standards

GAIO's test tools, CoverageMaster winAMS, CasePlayer2, and MC-Verifier, are tool-certified by TUV SUD, a German third-party certification organization, for development of in-vehicle Software that complies with the Automotive Functional Safety Standards (ISO 26262).

Certificate awarding ceremony

ISO 26262 Tool Functional Safety Standards for Automobiles Certification Acquired for the First Time in the Asian Region, Including Japan

On June 28, 2012, CoverageMaster winAMS/ General was the first Asian product in Japan and other Asian countries to acquire Tools certification for the ISO 26262 Functional Safety Standard for Automobiles from TUV SUD of Germany, a third-party certification organization.
Through this tool certification, GAIO's CoverageMaster winAMS/ General and Program Analysis Tool CasePlayer2 were recognized by TUV SUD as tools that comply with all safety integrity levels during the Static Analysis and Unit Test phases.

Compatible with all ASIL and TCLs

In-vehicle Software development projects that comply with ISO 26262 require that you set the TCL (Tool Confidence Level) of the tools you use. The use of tool-certified GAIO tools allows users to omit tool-certification tasks regardless of TCL.
Since acquiring this certification, each major version of CoverageMaster, CasePlayer2, and MC-Verifier has been re-certified.
