HDL Design House and AFuzion Synergy to Enhance DO-254 Projects


Belgrade, Serbia – July 20th, 2017 – HDL Design House, provider of digital, analog, and back-end design and verification services and products in numerous areas of SoC, and AFuzion, the safety-critical systems and certification company, have started a collaboration to simplify the complex DO-254 project requirements and reduce overall project time, by relying upon HDL DH’s verification expertize and AFuzion’s DO-254 training and avionics certification services. The collaboration will provide customers with turn-key DO-254 solutions and expertise at any project phase.


The initial phase of any DO-254 project requires in-depth knowledge of the DO-254 standard. AFuzion’s DO-254 training is the world’s largest and provides customers with a solid foundation to commence their DO-254 projects. Another crucial prerequisite is documentation, and AFuzion’s all-new, proprietary DO-254 Templates and DO-254 Checklists facilitate the project continuation.


The most critical part of DO-254 projects is verification, since it provides evidence that the design meets requirements. The use of random verification which improves the quality of the design and enables detecting a greater number of defects in early project stage, while adhering to DO-254 processes is a great challenge. Moving from standard direct-test approach to random verification within DO-254 processes can be very difficult. Also, the project documentation which is required for the complete random verification process has to be in accordance with DO-254 standard as well as checklists. HDL Design House has a proven track record working on numerous projects in the avionics market, including DAL-A and DAL-B criticality levels for all aircraft types.


Finally, AFuzion’s avionics hardware DO-254 Gap Analysis examines the avionic product’s safety, hardware requirements, FPGA/ASIC/PLD design, V&V, tools, and Process Assurance (QA) to assess and leverages compliance to FAA and EASA standards / expectations while lowering DO-254 Costs, especially with HDL’s cost-effective DO-254 verification services.


The synergy between HDL DH and AFuzion offers customers guidance and support throughout the demanding DO-254 projects and enables them to lean on the expertize in design and verification and certification processes at any project stage.
