The rapid evolution of technology creates a high probability that at least one of those components will need to be changed years or even decades before the system itself will be retired. Such hardware changes can, in turn, trigger a need for developers to migrate system software to a new technology to ensure continued serviceability.
The migration to a new technology can be a costly, risky process that developers should avoid whenever possible. But in some cases, it is desirable for financial or inescapable reasons because of hardware obsolescence and new requirements.

Static analysis technology improves the testing process in medical devices

Recently, the Center for Devices and Radiological Health’s  (CDRH) Office of Science and Engineering Laboratories (OSEL) has been investigating the use of static analysis technology to assist in a post-market investigation. This article gives a brief introduction to static analysis and explains how we used this technique to detect flaws.
In the past, the only way to trace the software flaws was to manually review the source code itself. Given the complexity of modern medical-device software, this is a very difficult and time-consuming task for a third-party investigator with no prior knowledge of the software.
