Update on Civil Certification of Multicore Processing Systems in Commercial Avionics


Update on Civil Certification of Multicore Processing Systems in Commercial Avionics

The transition from traditional federated systems to consolidated multicore platforms gives aerospace suppliers a competitive edge. This 60-minute web seminar examines the industry’s remarkable journey bringing multicore processing to avionics systems as well as the challenges of the DAL A aviation certification process. You will learn about the collaborative approach taken by Collins Aerospace and Wind River® in order to achieve DO-178C DAL A safety certification on an FAA Program of Record and the progress done so far.

The web seminar discusses:

  • The strategy created to meet safety certification objectives (e.g., CAST-32A) in a mixed-criticality system using multiple cores within a single system-on-chip (SoC) processor
  • Determinism analyses for dealing with potential multicore concerns such as interference channels
  • Current status on navigating avionics hardware and software certification guidance for achieving DO-178C DAL A safety certification on an FAA Program of Record
