Firmware Case Studies

To find out more about some of the FPGA projects Resource Group has delivered please follow the case study links below.

FPGA simulation testing

This case study describes a feasibility investigation for large scale simulation testing of a power control unit for an aerospace application based on a triple FPGA architecture.

The safety assessment carried out on the product determined a DO-254 DAL B certification was necessary. Resource Group's role on behalf of the client was to identify the best processes to achieve the simulation test requirements for an existing implementation and to identify the effort and risks in doing so.

FPGA target integration testing


This case study describes the on target integration testing performed on an FPGA based auxiliary control unit for an aerospace application.

The testing was carried out on a custom built test rig provided by the customer with a Labview based test environment to aerospace safety standard DO-254 level B.

Certification planning against DO-178B and DO-254 guidelines

This case study represents the delivery of a multi-disciplined service for the certification planning stage of a novel Aerospace application.

This project involved a full analysis of customer requirements and prototype implementation on both FPGA and software targets. The output of this project was the certification planning documents and associated processes ready for an SOI#1 FAA audit against DO-178B and DO-254 requirements.

Firmware full lifecycle support

This case study represents an example of how Resource Group supported a major aerospace company in the development of a significant, high integrity, control system for deployment on the A350 airframe.

The project was a DO-254 DAL B full lifecycle development with the application written in VHDL and use of support tools such as IBM Rational DOORS, Mentor Graphics ModelSim and Microsemi Libero.
