With the recent FAA/EASA mandate, companies providing flight hardware for commercial aviation systems must now build their complex electronic hardware components to the standard known as DO-254. Focusing on design assurance (including quality, traceability, and strict configuration management), the DO-254 standard can have a profound impact on a company’s development processes and design flows.

This paper discusses the application of advanced methodologies and integrated tool flows for ASIC/FPGA design and verification, showing how to implement a high quality flow that provides the required assurance while maintaining cost and schedules.
