MathWorks has announced that its Real-Time Workshop Embedded Coder product for MathWorks Release 2008a was certified by TÜV SÜD Automotive GmbH.

According to the certificate report from TÜV, "The MathWorks development organisation responsible for developing the Real-Time Workshop Embedded Coder has been audited to assess its development and quality assurance procedures. This assessment focused on the software modification process, customer bug reporting and fitness for purpose for safety-related development according to IEC 61508."

TÜV granted the certificate based upon a workflow for typical automotive applications that addresses "Application-Specific Verification and Validation of Models and Generated Code." This workflow describes how Model-Based Design can be used for applications that need to comply with IEC 61508-3.
