Xilinx Extends Leadership In Avionics With Certifiable, All Programmable Design Solutions And Dedicated Support

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) today announced its comprehensive solutions and support to address complex avionics certification challenges. Xilinx's DO-254, DO-178, and SEU mitigation solutions build upon its long history of leadership in military avionics and secure solutions to extend support for certification of commercial, military and dual-use avionics systems.  These solutions are now enabling the latest advancements in avionics applications with Xilinx's generation-ahead 28nm devices, including 7 series FPGAs and Zynq™-7000 All Programmable system-on-a-chip (SoCs).


"We are pleased to be offering unsurpassed support for the commercial avionics market with certifiable solutions that enable use of our latest generation of 28nm FPGAs and All Programmable SoCs for future airborne systems," said Yousef Khalilollahi, senior director, Aerospace and Defense at Xilinx. "These solutions allow our customers to build high performance, all programmable solutions with reduced certification burden and product development cost."

Xilinx has established an industry-leading commercial avionics solutions portfolio over the past several years.  Through key partnerships with LogiCircuit, Inc., certification representatives, and other IP vendors, Xilinx is rolling out a certifiable IP ecosystem.  DO-254 certifiable versions of configurable IP cores include Xilinx's MicroBlaze™ soft processor, Great River Technologies' ARINC 818 core, other standard avionics interfaces, and many AXI peripherals.  The first end-system to utilize several of these cores is expected to enter certification in late 2013. These DO-254 and DO-178 certifiable data packages meet rigorous commercial avionics certification standards, thereby reducing design and development time, certification burden, and non-recurring engineering costs. 

"This strategic initiative combining LogiCircuit's certification services capabilities, industry-leading DERs, and key FPGA IP solutions, such as Xilinx® MicroBlaze and Great River Tech ARINC 818, has paved the way for commercial avionics customers to design high-reliability DAL A/B systems with a consistent template of artifact traceability for programmable systems," said Joe Goode, president of LogiCircuit, Inc.  "This is a paradigm shift for avionics customers seeking to take advantage the performance, reliability, and long life-cycle Xilinx FPGAs in safety-critical applications, which greatly streamlines the R&D and certification process."

These DO-254 certifiable IP solutions build upon Xilinx's high reliability generation-ahead 28nm silicon which exhibits the lowest intrinsic SEU FIT rate of any commercial SRAM-based technology and is designed for long life applications.  The Xilinx SEU advantage is further extended with SEU mitigation and analysis solutions including the fully supported soft error mitigation IP ( SEM IP), the SEU FIT rate calculator, publicly available data and test methods, and expert design guidance. Xilinx's dedicated focus on silicon reliability and SEU FIT rate makes its devices the clear choice for avionics systems developers that are targeting the highest performance systems with unsurpassed levels of integration in a programmable device. 

AvailabilityBeta versions of the DO-254 certifiable configurable IP cores and certification data packages are now available. Please contact your local Xilinx representative for further information. To learn more about how Xilinx is solving complex avionics challenges, please visit
