FPGA/ASIC/DO-254 Services

FPGA/ASIC/DO-254 Services

Accord has over 20 years of experience in PLD (FPGA) development and over 15 years in V&V as per DO-254 process. The experience has been in directly dealing with FAA and FAA DERs for over a dozen programs.

Developed FPGA leading to complex signal processing ASICs including in-built CPUs at 90nm and 28nm low power technologies, successfully fabricated at TSMC and Global Foundry

Accord is skilled in Development of PLD/FPGA programs using VHDL or Verilog and PLD/FPGA to ASIC Conversion

Faster Development time with Re-usable IP for ARINC 429, MIL 1553, Correlator, FFT blocks, finite state machines results in savings in Cost and a reduced Schedule.

Accord offers the following services in the DO-254 area:

  • Development of PLD algorithms using VHDL or Verilog
  • System Requirement validation as per applicable standards
  • Functional & timing Simulation
  • Static Timing Analysis
  • Coverage Analysis
  • FPGA to ASIC migration
  • Development of re-usable IP’s for communication interfaces and GNSS Baseband processors
  • GNSS Baseband IP is silicon proven on 40 nm, 90 nm and 130 nm processes
  • Multiple V & V programs adhering to DO-254 DAL C through DAL A for several customers
  • Accord has its own standards and checklists with compliance and documentation to DO-254 standards
