Practical Use of FPGAs and IP in DO-254 Compliant Systems
There exists little doubt that a fully compliant DO-254 process is required for custom FPGA designs and for the custom intellectual property (IP) that resides within them, but how can a designer use commercially available IP within a DO-254 compliant system? Here is where ambiguities enter the DO-254 process. This white paper addresses where and when to use DO-254 and DO-178 in FPGA designs and recommends practical means for employing widely used commercial off the shelf (COTS) IP in custom FPGA designs that target avionics applications.
