OneSpin Rolls Out OneSpin 360 EC-FPGA Tool Qualification Kit to Meet DO-254 Standard

Users Deploy EC-FPGA Formal Sequential Equivalence Checking into Aviation Electronic Systems with Support for Certification Processes

MUNICH and SAN JOSE, CALIF. –– June 20, 2018 –– OneSpin® Solutions, provider of innovative formal verification solutions for highly reliable, digital integrated circuits (ICs), today rolled out OneSpin 360 equivalence checking (EC)-field programmable gate array (FPGA)™ Tool Qualification Kit to support the DO-254 standard.

“OneSpin’s EC-FPGA exhaustively verifies highly optimized FPGAs for aviation, aerospace, autonomous vehicles, nuclear power plants, railways and medical devices, eliminating systematic errors introduced during implementation,” says Dr. Raik Brinkmann, OneSpin’s president and chief executive officer. “With this new DO-254 Tool Qualification Kit, our avionics users can deploy EC-FPGA seamlessly in their safety-critical flows to achieve a new level of productivity and standard compliance.”

The tool qualification kit enables OneSpin users to meet the highest aviation electronic systems requirements for airborne electronic hardware set by DO-254 (Level A). OneSpin 360 EC-FPGA Tool Qualification Kit, along with OneSpin’s comprehensive formal verification solutions, will be demonstrated in OneSpin’s Design Automation Conference (DAC) Booth #2611 June 25-27 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.  

Included in OneSpin 360 EC-FPGA Tool Qualification Kit are DO-254 and DO-330 tool qualification guidelines, tool documentation, quality assurance practices documentation and a compliant development processes certificate.

Additionally, a tool verification package, including a test set with expected results, documentation of internal test infrastructure, coverage and environment, as well as safety guidelines, comes with the tool qualification kit. Also included are building blocks for users to develop their plan for hardware aspects of certification (PHAC) and a hardware verification plan (HVP).

OneSpin provides assistance to users completing the DO-254 qualification.

EC-FPGA is an automatic sequential equivalence checker that prevents field-programmable gate array (FPGA) design flows from introducing synthesis, place-and-route and other implementation errors. This serves as independent output assessment for such implementation tools, which is required by the safety standard. Using advanced formal technology, EC-FPGA detects corner-case design flow bugs with a process that is orders of magnitude more efficient and rigorous than gate-level simulation.

Availability and Pricing

OneSpin 360 EC-FPGA DO-254 Tool Qualification Kit is shipping now.

Pricing is available upon request. OneSpin has direct sales channels in the United States, Europe and throughout Asia, backed by a variety of customer service and support options including on-site training, hotline support and consulting services.
