LDRA Speeds Medical Device Design with IEC 62304 Compliance — Press Release

LDRA Speeds Medical Device Design with IEC 62304 Compliance

LDRA tool suite ensures requirements traceability and compliance across complete software lifecycle

Wirral, UK, 30 November 2010. LDRA, the leader in standards compliance, has integrated IEC 62304, a standard for software design of medical products, into automated software verification, source code analysis, and test tools. The standard, recently adopted by the European Union and the United States, harmonizes both European and American medical standards, ensuring that development teams improve their software quality, while minimizing the time and cost of development and maximizing market coverage.

Medical devices have become increasingly sophisticated, employing software-controlled applications whose failure to function correctly could result in death or serious injury. Despite this increased complexity, medical software standards have continued to reflect only the rigor of software quality typical of applications with low levels of risk. IEC 62304 introduces a risk-based compliance structure—Class A through C where the failure of Class C software could result in death or serious injury—that ensures that medical applications must comply with the standards suitable for their risk assessment.

“As the US and international governments raise the stakes for company CEOs to make sure their products operate safely, it is incumbent on them to use best practices in the design and development of those products,” noted Ian Hennell, LDRA Operations Director. “LDRA’s ability to prove compliance to the IEC 62304 standard and to integrate that compliance into all stages of development from requirements to verification provides the confidence medical companies need that their devices will withstand scrutiny and help them defend against any product liability claims they may encounter.”

The safety classification of IEC 62304 has a tremendous impact on the code development process with requirements outlined from a software development plan through verification, integration and system test. While in practice all companies developing medical device software will carry out some level of due diligence on all software classes, the higher risk Class B and C code requires more formal detailed documentation along with cross-referencing and verification of requirements. By integrating compliance to IEC 62304 into its entire tool chain, LDRA ensures that medical device developers can automatically trace requirements from design through system test and verification, saving a great deal of time and money in software development.

“The LDRA tool suite has been invaluable in developing our implantable technology for treatment of high blood pressure and heart failure,” noted Ryan Smith, Senior Principal Firmware Engineer at CVRx, Inc. “We needed a scalable solution that complemented our in-house testing and could be configured for custom hardware targets and multiple compilers. The LDRA tool suite has repeatedly delivered, providing multiple strategies to drive early defect detection as well as promoting long term quality assurance through daily execution of regression test suites.”

“The requirement for due diligence has put the onus on the medical device manufacturer to ensure medical software has been rigorously tested and complies with specified device standards,” confirmed Hennell. “With more than 35 years’ experience verifying safety-critical software, we have developed tools that automate the testing and verification process, ensuring greater reliability, fewer program errors, and reduced development time and resources. We welcome the opportunity to assist medical device companies such as CVRx to implement software standards throughout their software development lifecycle to ensure compliance with IEC 62304.”

To launch its support of IEC 62304 standard, LDRA is providing an indepth webinar and white paper. To learn more about LDRA’s support of IEC 62304:

Another BRAC Contract to Help Navy Move

In the last round of the Base Realignment and Closing (BRAC) for the U.S. Defense Department one of the goals was the consolidation of research, test and training centers. This work has proceeded over the last four years with a goal of most of it being completed by 2012. As part of the decisions the Navy is moving their Integrated Combat Systems Test Facility (ICSTF) from California to the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) in Dahlgren, VA.

The ICSTF has been located at the Point Loma facility near San Diego for over thirty years. Its role is to provide certification of software and programs that control the weapon systems on ships. It is part of the Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWARS). SPAWARS itself was one of the original BRAC changes moving from the Arlington, VA area to San Diego in the Nineties.

To support the various parts of BRAC many different contracts have been issued to a number of contractors who aid in the transfer of everything from personnel, equipment, manage IT handover and housekeeping services. To support the move of the ICSTF DRS Technologies was given a contract by the Navy worth up to $25 million.

Under the contract DRS will provide support for general activities including the laboratory transition and set up.

BRAC’s long term goal is to save the Department money through creating efficiencies and reducing overhead. As always with these types of plans there is an upfront cost that must be paid. These kind of contracts are just one part of it as the bigger cost will be either relocating or replacing the employees and the possible construction required to build or rehabilitate buildings.

When BRAC is over there should be a smaller, more focused U.S. defense establishment.
