DDC-I Announces Webcast for Safety-Critical DO-178 Software Development

Will discuss scheduling techniques for maximizing system performance in time and space partitioned DO-178 certifiable safety-critical systems

Phoenix, AZ. December 20, 2013. DDC-I, a leading supplier of software and professional services for mission- and safety-critical applications, today announced that it will be offering a free webcast on January 28 focusing on scheduling techniques for maximizing system performance in time and space partitioned DO-178 certifiable safety-critical systems. The webcast is ideal for software engineers, systems engineers and engineering managers interested in developing safety-critical avionics software in compliance with DO-178/ED-12.

Abstract:

ARINC 653 Part 1 (653p1) defines a standard Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) Application EXecutive (APEX). It provides partitioning and a relatively simple, standards-based API, which facilitate porting and reuse of 653 applications.

Priority-preemptive RTOSs offer flexible scheduling models, which allow efficient scheduling of more complex applications. However, very few of these RTOSs support guaranteed execution of tasks, also known as time partitioning.

Merging these two models into a hybrid solution offers the best of both worlds: standards-based commonality and advanced features that can yield the highest performance possible for safety-critical software operation.

This webcast will highlight real-time operating system technology, that allows developers to merge these two approaches into a hybrid model, and will discuss the resulting benefits.

About Deos™
Deos is a safety-critical embedded RTOS that has been certified to DO-178 DAL A since 1998. Featuring deterministic real-time response, the time and space partitioned RTOS employs patented ‘slack scheduling’ to deliver higher CPU utilization than any other certifiable safety-critical COTS RTOS. 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-178, Level A processes from the very first day of its product development. Deos provides the easiest, lowest cost path of any COTS RTOS to DO-178 Level A certification, the highest level of safety criticality.
