DO-254 Training

25th to 28th April, 2011 – Bangalore 9.00AM to 4.00PM At Mentor Graphics, Touchstone Building, Sarjapur Road, Bangalore


DO-254 - Solutions for Requirements Based FPGA Design Flows
RTCA/DO-254 “Design Assurance Guidance for Airborne Electronic Hardware” is a standard that is currently being enforced by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and other worldwide aviation certification agencies. The purpose of DO-254 is to ensure the safety of in-flight hardware. All FPGA (or ASIC) devices that go in systems that fly must now adhere to the DO-254 standard. The stringency of the process is dictated by the design assurance level (DAL, or safety rating) of the end system, levels A (highest) through E (lowest). Designing to DO-254 level A/B compliance standards can be a very costly venture. Leveraging training, expertise, and the right tools can help defray much of this added cost. Mentor Graphics solutions deliver a best-practice methodology for requirements based design, to help you meet both your DO-254 and quality objectives while improving the productivity of your flows and valuable resources. Mentor Graphics is conducting a 4 day paid DO-254 Compliance training including an introduction to tools for use in

this program.
