DDC-I Features DO-178C, Multi-core Avionics RTOS at Aerospace Tech Week Europe

BOOTH #617

Munich, Germany – April 17-18, 2024. DDC-I, a leading supplier of software and professional services for mission- and safety-critical applications, today announced that it will demonstrate its DO-178C multi-core avionics RTOS at Aerospace Tech Week Europe, which will be held on April 17-18 at Hall 4 at the MOC Event Center Messe in Munich Germany. DDC-I will showcase its Deos™ safety-critical avionics real-time operating system (RTOS), which utilizes the latest DO-178C Design Assurance Level A (DAL A) multi-core verified baseline.

Aerospace Tech Week is the largest gathering of aerospace technology, airlines, avionics, aerospace testing, flight ops and MRO communities. Combining multiple events under one roof with dedicated conference tracks for core technologies and a large central exhibition, ATW features seven different conferences, covering everything from avionics hardware and software testing, to connectivity, MRO, and Flight Ops IT.

DDC-I will host a pair of safety-critical avionics display demos at its booth (#617). Both demos will feature Deos running on an NXP i.MX8qm processor with integrated Vivante GC7000 GPU and CoreAVI VkCoreGL® SC2 OpenGL® SC driver and libraries. One demo, focusing on avionics instruments, utilizes the Ensco IData cockpit display graphics tool suite to create and deploy human machine interface (HMI) displays. The second demo, focusing on instrument and drone capabilities, utilizes the Ansys SCADE display design and development environment to create and deploy the HMI.

“DDC-I has been a pioneer in the development of embedded avionics RTOS technology and an early adopter of safety-critical and interoperability standards like DO-178C and The Future Airborne Capability Environment®, also known as FACE®, with a focus on worst-case execution time and multi-core,” said Greg Rose, vice president of marketing at DDC-I. “We look forward to sharing our latest multi-core technology and graphical integration capabilities with avionics designers at Aerospace Tech Week.”

About Deos

DDC-I’s Deos is a safety-critical time and space partitioned RTOS. First certified to DO-178 DAL A in 1998, Deos combines DO-178C DAL A artifacts with FACE® Technical Standard support that encompasses the Safety Base and Safety Extended Profiles for the Operating System Segment (OSS). The Safety Base Profile features hard real-time response, time, and space partitioning, and both ARINC-653 and POSIX interfaces.

SafeMC technology extends Deos’ advanced capabilities to multiple cores, enabling developers of safety-critical systems to achieve best in class multi-core performance without compromising safety-critical task response and guaranteed execution time. SafeMC employs a bound multiprocessing (BMP) extension of the symmetric multiprocessing architecture (SMP), safe scheduling, and cache partitioning to minimize cross-core contention and interference patterns that affect the performance, safety criticality and certifiability of multi-core systems These features enable avionics systems developers to address issues that could impact the safety, performance and integrity of a software airborne system executing on Multi-Core Processors (MCP), as specified by the FAA Advisory Circular AC 20-193.
