There have been various standards/guidelines utilized as a part of the development of software for different purposes. They have advanced over some stretch of time as with the development of the software industry. Distinctive enterprises require diverse standards/guidelines in light of its need. Despite the fact that these standards/guidelines have some similitude, they additionally have run of the mill uniqueness that recognizes them from others.
DO-178B/C is used to assure the safety of avionics software. These standards provide guidance in the areas of SW development, configuration management, verification and the interface to approval authorities (e.g., FAA, EASA). We have executed a wide range of projects and enabled devices across various operating systems.
Typical Development Road Plan
Avionics Safety levels Assured per DO-178 B/C Standard
The purpose of DO-254, recognized in 2005 by the FAA, is to ensure safety in airborne electronic systems.
As the standard means of compliance for ASIC, FPGA and PLDs used in such systems DO-254 is composed of five levels of stringency, levels A to E, that are based on the effect of the failure of the hardware upon an aircraft. Meeting Level A compliance requires a much higher level of validation and verification than would Level E compliance.
DO-254 provides the necessary process guidelines to ensure the design’s requirements are met, and ensure the highest quality in all safety critical designs destined for use in aircraft.
Faststream technologies have a strong design-to-deployment capability for FPGA/ASIC and Signal processing based designs to complement its core strength of designing complete avionics subsystems. Our expertise lies in building and deploying customized FPGA and Signal Processing designs and IP Cores that integrate custom software and hardware engineering.
Further improvements have played pivotal role in advancing FPGAs which based on design feature high-speed serial interfaces like Serial RapidIO (SRIO), PCI Express (PCIe), InfiniBand, Gigabit Ethernet, 10 GigE etc, thereby gaining wider acceptance and use in emerging aerospace applications.
Current generation FPGAs also come as 3 dimensional silicon using stacked silicon Interconnect, leading to high density and high performance FPGAs
