Our KeySolutions

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 Firmware/Software Development

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.

Using RISC-V to Simplify Data Logging in Space


Universal requirement for small  Earth orbit satellites is gradually increasing at an unparalleled pace, operated  by multiple necessity such as faster and more inexpensive  Internet access, and quick revisit rates with excellent  purpose for imaging data. The satellite payload instruments accomplishing communications or imaging functions are becoming increasingly enlightened and competent and require the assembling  of growing amounts of telemetry data to handle  the safe and well-grounded operation of the satellite.

This is articulate using different large, power-hungry, and heat-generating circuit cards that carry a diversity of distinct elements for observing payload health. The ingredient calculate of these I/O cards and the area and power they imbibes can all be remarkably minimized by getting advantages of the modern advances in  RHMSIC ( radiation-hardened mixed-signal integrated circuits) of Faststream incorporated with a fresh  ISA(Instruction Set Architecture) for diminished  instruction set operating called RISC-V.


FPGAs to Work in Software Radio Systems


FPGAs have suited a growing principal  resource for Aviation software radio systems. Programmable logic technology now propounds important precedents  for executing software radio functions like Digital Downconverters(DDC). Over the last  few years, the functions linked with Digital Downconverters have seen a transfer from being conveyed in ASICApplication-Specific IC (ASIC) to managing as Intellectual (IP) in  FPGA.
