Rolling Wireless obtains Automotive SPICE (A-SPICE) Level 2 certification

The milestone achievement reflects Rolling Wireless’ commitment to implementing industry best practices and ability to design and deploy best-in-class automotive embedded software.

Rolling Wireless today announced that the company has achieved A-SPICE Level 2 certification. The accreditation validates Rolling Wireless’ capability to deliver secure and reliable software for critical automotive applications. 

A-SPICE (Automotive Software Process Improvement and Capability dEtermination) is an initiative of the Automotive Special Interest Group and the Quality Management Center in the German Automotive Industry Association (VDA QMC). Based on ISO/IEC 15504, a design and assessment framework for software development processes, A-SPICE defines best practices for embedded software in automotive development. 

An independent assessment was conducted at Rolling Wireless’ R&D centre in Shenzhen in January 2022 by Worthy Technology, a globally recognised IT consulting company. The assessors evaluated 15 different processes, including System Requirements Analysis, System Architectural Design, Quality Assurance, Change Request Management, and Project Management. 

Rolling Wireless NADs are delivered with an integrated software platform, Legato, designed to optimise the customer’s application development process. The platform already powers safety and infotainment applications in more than 30 million vehicles around the world. 

“Reliable embedded software is critically important in today’s automotive environment, and a key differentiator for our company,” said Wei Xu, Senior Vice President, R&D at Rolling Wireless. “As we continue to enhance the Legato platform, we are also making significant investments in new software products. This includes pre-integrated, ready-to-use software building blocks which will further simplify and speed up new application development for our Tier 1 and automotive OEM customers.”

“A-SPICE Level 2 certification is an important achievement, but our efforts don’t stop here,” said Rafet Lakhdar, Senior Vice President, Quality at Rolling Wireless. “We're committed to ensuring that all our processes and standards are of the highest quality, and have put an ambitious certification roadmap in place to meet the automotive industry’s demanding quality and longevity requirements.”
