Compilers play a major role in application development. They compile source code into efficient machine code, and thus have tremendous responsibility for the functionality, safety and security not only for embedded systems. C and C++ compilers for mainstream processor architectures such as x86 and ARM are considered as reliable, but even they could use improvements when it comes to diagnostic capabilities. And what about compilers for application-oriented processors such as DSPs and application-specific 8-bit microcontrollers? They are not used by as many people and the target processors are often too small to run typical large applications that can be used to verify their reliability. ...
