LynxOS-178 FAA approved Reusable
ported to Teledyne e2v's DO-254
ready Qormino® QT1040-4GB Common Computer Platform
CALIFORNIA - Media
OutReach - 27 December 2018 - Lynx Software Technologies, a
world leader in the embedded software market and Teledyne e2v, an
aerospace qualified manufacturer of advanced semiconductors today announced a
compact, powerful hardware and software development platform offering the
fastest path to certifiability for safety critical Power Architecture®
applications in avionics and other domains that demand high reliability. The
announcement follows the porting of LynxOS-178, a proven, field-hardened and DO-178C
certified hard real-time operating system, to the Teledyne e2v Qormino®
QT1040-4GB Common Computer Platform, an exceptionally compact custom platform including
a Power Architecture® based Processor, 4GB of DDR4 memory, and benefitting
from DO-254 certification support. LynxOS-178
is the first and only commercial RTOS which has been approved by the Federal
Aviation Administration (FAA) as a Reusable Software Component (RSC), and
acceptable for use in DO-178 design assurance level A systems per the Advisory
Circular (AC) 20-148.
Thomas Guillemain, Marketing and Business Development Manager of
Digital Processing Solutions at Teledyne e2v commented "The integration of the
market's only commercially available Reusable Software Component RTOS,
LynxOS-178, with our DO-254 certification ready Qormino QT1040-4GB Power Architecture
based platform is an exciting opportunity for our mutual customers to accelerate
their certified system development. Qormino reduces their design cycle time, and
enhances their ability to stay in the market with our 15+ year support
Lee Cresswell, vice president of global sales at Lynx, added, "The
LynxOS-178 RSC significantly reduces the risk, effort and cost of certification
according to DO-178C. Acting as a 'reusable hardware component' the Teledyne
e2v Qormino module similarly speeds and simplifies certification to DO-254. Coupling
with our RTOS RSC provides customer benefits in terms of both time-to-market
and time-in-market as their software applications evolve, and reinforces Lynx's
commitment to working with its partners and customers to fundamentally reduce
the cost of developing, certifying and sustaining avionics designs."
Teledyne e2v's Qormino QT1040-4GB combines NXP QorIQ®
T1040 Quad Core Power Architecture processor and 4GB of DDR4 memory on a custom
substrate which reduces development time, simplifies designs and allows space
savings on the printed circuit board (PCB). QT1040-4GB is shipping today to
customers, targeted at High Reliability environments up to military temperature
Range (-55C to 125C), and is supplied with a DO-254 Data Package.
The LynxOS®-178 RTOS is an open standards hard real-time DO-178B/C level A certified
operating system with natively implemented POSIX APIs and FACE compatibility. LynxOS-178 also provides support for ARINC
653 services, ARINC 653 time and space partitioning, and the deployment of
applications developed according to ARINC 653 APplication EXecutive (APEX) APIs.
LynxOS-178 is designed specifically to fulfil the stringent needs of
multithread and multiprocessing applications in safety-critical real-time
The integration was demonstrated at Electronica 2018 in Munich
13-19 November on the Teledyne e2v booth. The demonstration showcased the Eclipse-based
Luminosity integrated development environment (IDE) and SpyKer tools, and showed
cross-development targeting the Teledyne e2v Qormino QT1040-4GB.
LynxOS-178 2.2.4, supporting NXP
T series devices, is available today. Certification artifacts for the
LynxOS-178 RSC are available today to support certification according to
DO-178C up to DAL
QT1040-4GB Evaluation & Open Development Platform is available today.
Board support Package (BSP) for the Qormino QT1040-4GB Development Board is
immediately available as an early access release.
