DDC-I Offers May 12 Webinar on Safety-Critical Software Reuse for Multi-core Avionics Systems

Phoenix, AZ. April 28, 2010. DDC-I, a leading supplier of software and professional services for mission- and safety-critical applications, announced today that it will offer a live interactive webinar on May 12 focusing on safety-critical software reuse for next-generation avionics and multi-core systems. The webinar, hosted and moderated by Open Systems Media, targets systems/software engineers and engineering managers who need to reuse software and adapt it to new target environments without changing the software.

“With most COTS safety-critical RTOSes, reusing software in a different target environment means modifying that software and re-incurring costly certification activities, such as those associated with DO-178B,” explained Tim King, technical marketing manager at DDC-I. “Systems utilizing multi-core processors exacerbate the problem, requiring costly modifications for activities as simple as reallocating software components to different cores for load leveling.”

This webinar will demonstrate how several unique features of Deos™, DDC-I’s time and space partitioned RTOS, enable software reuse for certifiable safety-critical applications in next generation and multi-core systems. With Deos, developers can easily reconfigure and adapt their software for reuse in new systems, or reallocate software loads in multi-core environments, without the need to modify that software and re-incur costly certification activities.

Deos is the industry’s most robust, highest performance RTOS for the safety-critical market. Featuring deterministic real-time response, the memory-protected RTOS employs patented “slack scheduling” to deliver higher CPU utilization than any other safety-critical COTS RTOS. Deos is the only certifiable time and space partitioned COTS RTOS built from the ground up for safety-critical applications. Deos also provides the easiest, lowest cost path of any COTS RTOS to DO-178B Level A certification, the highest level of safety criticality.
