Microsemi Corporation and eInfochips are collaborating on DO-254 compliant design services for the aerospace industry, bringing together the advantage of Microsemi FPGA-based products' immunity to configuration upsets and eInfochip design practices to boost design efficiency, reliability and performance.

According to market outlook reports from Airbus and Boeing, approximately 1400–1800 new commercial airplanes will be manufactured each year between 2013 and 2032, with the next generation of avionics products geared towards further improving safety, speed and connectivity for aircraft platforms. The two companies expect to positively impact this transition as a part of the global engineering community that designs advanced aerospace systems for critical and non-critical applications.

Microsemi's families of FPGA products boast complete absence of radiation-induced configuration upsets for safety critical applications such as commercial aviation. The company highlights that its Flash and antifuse FPGAs have been used in applications requiring DO-254 certification to design assurance level A and B (DAL-A, DAL-B)—said to be the most stringent of safety critical applications in commercial aviation—and have achieved flight heritage on many commercial aircraft programmes.

"Our clients strive to achieve reliability for their products, to clear FAA audits with minimal findings," said Parag Mehta, chief marketing and business development officer at eInfochips. "Microsemi's FPGAs, such as the IGLOO2 family, with SEU immune fabric configuration cells, provide the reliability essential for DO-254 compliant systems."

eInfochips' designs, meanwhile, are already deployed on many leading global commercial and military aircraft. The company offers expertise on DO-254, DO-178B and DO-160 for product design, re-engineering and sustenance services. The engineering R&D service company touts hands-on experience with critical products like flight control systems, multi-function displays, navigation systems, communication equipment and cabin management systems, among others.

Earlier this year, eInfochips was awarded the 'Global Supplier of the Year' for Engineering and Design Services by the leading aerospace supplier Rockwell Collins.
