Xilinx Inc. has rolled out what it says are comprehensive solutions and support geared for complex avionics certification challenges. The DO-254, DO-178 and SEU mitigation solutions extend support for certification of commercial, military and dual-use avionics systems. According to the company, the solutions enable the latest advancements in avionics applications with Xilinx's generation-ahead 28nm devices including 7 series FPGAs and Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs.

Xilinx has established an industry-leading commercial avionics solutions portfolio over the past several years. The DO-254 certifiable versions of configurable IP cores include Xilinx's MicroBlaze soft processor, Great River Technologies' ARINC 818 core, other standard avionics interfaces and many AXI peripherals. The first end-system to use several of these cores is expected to enter certification in late 2013. These DO-254 and DO-178 certifiable data packages meet rigorous commercial avionics certification standards, thereby reducing design and development time, certification burden and non-recurring engineering costs, Xilinx stated.

The DO-254 certifiable IP solutions build upon Xilinx's high reliability generation-ahead 28nm silicon that exhibits the lowest intrinsic SEU FIT rate of any commercial SRAM-based technology and is designed for long life applications, boasted the firm. The Xilinx SEU advantage is further extended with SEU mitigation and analysis solutions including the fully supported soft error mitigation IP (SEM IP), the SEU FIT rate calculator, publicly available data and test methods and expert design guidance. Xilinx's dedicated focus on silicon reliability and SEU FIT rate makes its devices the clear choice for avionics systems developers that are targeting the highest performance systems with unsurpassed levels of integration in a programmable device.

Beta versions of the DO-254 certifiable configurable IP cores and certification data packages are available.
