DDC-I to Present Paper on Multi-core Cache Partitioning at Digital Avionics Systems Conference

Phoenix, AZ. August 29, 2014. DDC-I, a leading supplier of software and professional services for mission- and safety-critical applications, today announced that it will be exhibiting and presenting a technical paper at the Digital Avionics Systems Conference (DASC), which will be held October 5-9 at the Antlers Hilton in Colorado Springs, CO.

In addition to showcasing its DO-178 certifiable safety-critical real-time operating system, Deos™, DDC-I will deliver a technical presentation on using cache partitioning to boost performance in certifiable, safety-critical avionics software applications utilizing multi-core processors. The presentation, employing real-world benchmarks, will demonstrate how cache partitioning can be used to reduce worst-case execution time and enhance CPU utilization in both single- and multi-core systems.

DASC provides a forum for the exchange of new knowledge in digital avionics among professionals and students in the fields of commercial, military, and general aviation and space applications. It serves the needs and professional interests of AIAA and IEEE members and promotes in a public environment their contributions and achievements in the arts, sciences and technology of aeronautics and astronautics.

Deos is an embedded RTOS that has been used in hundreds of safety-critical avionics applications on commercial and military aircraft. Certified to DO-178B DAL A since 1998, the time and space partitioned RTOS features deterministic real-time response and employs patented “slack scheduling” to deliver higher CPU utilization than other certifiable safety-critical COTS RTOSs. Deos is built from the ground up for safety-critical applications, and is the only certifiable time and space partitioned COTS RTOS that has been created using RTCA DO-178B, Level A processes from the very first day of its product development. Deos also provides the easiest, lowest cost path of any COTS RTOS to DO-178B Level A certification, the highest level of safety criticality.
