DDC-I Showcases DO-178C Multi-core RTOS at MOSA Industry & Government Summit & Expo

BOOTH # 113

Phoenix, AZ – June 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 safety-critical DO-178C Deos real-time operating system and integrated display capabilities at the MOSA Industry & Government Summit & Expo, which will be held at the Gaylord Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland on June 17 and 18.

DDC-I will showcase its MOSA-optimized Deos safety-critical real-time operating system (RTOS), which utilizes the latest DO-178C Design Assurance Level A (DAL A) multi-core verified baseline. DDC-I will also host a pair of safety-critical demos.

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 capabilities, utilizes the Ansys SCADE display design and development environment to create and deploy the HMI.

This year’s MOSA Industry and Government Summit & Expo will feature key leadership keynotes from the Department of Defense and Tri-Service, as well as panel discussions and presentations from experts in open architecture, open standards, and MOSA. With over seventy exhibitor booths showcasing live demonstrations, the two-day event offers a unique opportunity to connect with government offices and industry decision-makers implementing MOSA initiatives and gain insight into how the DoD is integrating MOSA into Major Defense Acquisition Programs.

“Deos was built from the ground up with a modular architecture and standard interfaces that emphasize portability, scalability and reuse, enabling avionics designers to reconfigure their systems with minimal impact on hardware, software and DO-178 recertification,” said Greg Rose, Vice President of Marketing at DDC-I. “Deos utilizes a DAL-A linking loader that allows OS binary components and their artifacts to travel separately, thereby enabling components to be added, removed, and reapplied to other system configurations with maximum reuse of DAL-A artifacts. We look forward to demonstrating our world class, safety-critical MOSA technology to the defense community at the MOSA Industry and Government Summit & Expo.”

About Deos

Deos is a safety-critical real-time operating system. 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.
