DDC-I and LDRA are offering a seminar on DO-178B and DO-178C safety-critical software development. The seminar will cover the new objectives and guidance for DO-178C; establishing effective safety-critical software processes for maximum success and minimum cost; utilizing object oriented technologies, formal methods and model-based development; and designing safer, more reliable and maintainable embedded software. The event will take place on January 27th at the Hilton Garden Inn, Hartford North/Bradley International Airport, Windsor Locks, CT.
DDC-I will host a webinar on safety-critical DO-178B-compliant software design and the emerging DO-178C standard. The webcast will take place October 20, 2010 at 2pm EDT. The online seminar is ideal for software engineers and engineering managers interested in learning about developing and certifying safety-critical avionics software in compliance with DO-178B and DO-178C. It is also ideal for systems engineers interested in learning about the interface between systems and software in a safety-critical environment.
Express Logic announced market-specific, turnkey, Safety-Critical Certification Pack products for their ThreadX RTOS. ThreadX Safety Critical Certification Packs are available for a wide range of target environments and development tools, and for a wide range of European and International regulatory standards. Express Logic is extending its offering to cover RTCA’s DO-178B, FDA 510(k) Pre-Market Notification and Approval, and IEC-61508 for avionics, medical and industrial automation equipment. License prices starting at $25,000.
The LDRA tool suite has integrated with IAR Embedded Workbench for the PIC18, AVR, AVR32, and MSP430 microcontrollers. IAR Embedded Workbench provides full ANSI C compliance, support for embedded C++, and host-controlled I/O facilities. LDRA leverages the capabilities to add static analysis, code coverage to Modified Condition/Decision Coverage (MC/DC), and requirement traceability on these resource-constrained footprints.
DDC-I’s DO-178B-certifiable Deos real-time operating system (RTOS) is now integrated with LDRA’s tool suite. The integrated solution enable developers to get to market faster with optimized, robust, and certifiable software that meets the most demanding safety-critical requirements, including DO-178B Level A, the FAA’s highest level of safety criticality. The integration gives developers across a broad range of mission-critical applications the turnkey platform they need to quickly develop, debug, comprehensively test, and deploy safety-critical software that can be readily certified to the most demanding requirements.
