Airborne Electronic Hardware Design Assurance: A by Randall Fulton

By Randall Fulton

Written via a Federal Aviation management (FAA) advisor distinctive engineering consultant (DER) and an electronics layout engineer who jointly taught the DO-254 category on the Radio Technical fee for Aeronautics, Inc. (RTCA) in Washington, District of Columbia, united states, Airborne digital layout coverage: A Practitioner's consultant to RTCA/DO-254 is an affidavit to the teachings discovered and knowledge won from decades of first-hand adventure within the layout, verification, and approval of airborne digital hardware.

This sensible advisor to using RTCA/DO-254 within the improvement of airborne digital for defense severe airborne applications:

  • Describes find out how to optimize engineering tactics and practices to harmonize with DO-254
  • Addresses the only such a lot complex element of engineering and compliance to DO-254—poorly written requirements
  • Includes an instructional on how you can write specifications that might reduce the associated fee and energy of digital layout and verification
  • Discusses the typical pitfalls encountered by means of practitioners of DO-254, besides how these pitfalls take place and what could be performed approximately them
  • Settles the continuing debate and misconceptions concerning the precise definition of a derived requirement
  • Promotes embracing DO-254 because the top capability to accomplish compliance to it, in addition to the easiest route to high quality digital hardware

Airborne digital layout insurance: A Practitioner's advisor to RTCA/DO-254 bargains real-world perception into RTCA/DO-254 and the way its pursuits may be happy. It offers engineers with precious info that may be utilized to any undertaking to make compliance to DO-254 as effortless and problem-free as possible.

Example text

The Electronic Component Management Plan defines the use and management of COTS components used in the hardware design process. The ECMP is typically coordinated with an organization’s purchasing or parts procurement department. 2 The IEC technical specification describes all aspects of process management for electronic components and is an excellent reference for putting an ECMP in place. Note that unprogrammed FPGA devices should be managed in accordance with an ECMP. 1. 1 also lists the tools used to produce the documents in the planning phase.

ISSUE PAPERS The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) uses Issue Papers to provide a structured means of accomplishing the necessary steps in the type certification and type validation processes. Type certification includes projects for type certificates, amended type certificates, type design changes, supplemental type certificates, and Regulatory Background 27 amended supplemental type certificates. Issue Papers provide a means for describing and tracking the resolution of significant technical, regulatory, and administrative issues that occur during a project.

This description sets the context for the readers and helps them evaluate and understand the functions and safety aspects. The system description includes the architecture and functionality of the system, the failure conditions, and references to applicable system level documentation. The system description also states how functions are allocated to hardware and software. Drilling down to the next level, the PHAC describes each hardware item in the scope of the PHAC. The item description should include the device types and technologies, such as flash, anti-­fuse, or static random access memory (SRAM) devices.
