Robust design methods to certificate with confidence
From its early existence, Barco Silex has developed its own design methodology, historically based upon stringent “first time right” ASIC development constraints. All Barco Silex engineers are trained to that methodology, which includes a set of rules and guidelines that minimize risks, accelerate design start procedures and enhanced debugging capabilities. As a result, Barco Silex has been quickly selected by the market leaders in the aerospace industry for design projects requiring the DO-254 design assurance guideline. And nowadays, Barco Silex has extended its methodology expertise to other markets and achieved several designs performing safety critical functions in domains such as Avionic, Transportation and Medical.
Barco Silex provides development flows in line with certification requirements:
- Aircrafts (DO 254)
Barco Silex is member of DO-254 User Group
- Industrial applications ( IEC 61508 and derivated) SIL 2 /SIL 3 Design capabilities
- Transportation EN 501xx
- Medical applications (IEC60601)
- Systems for Nuclear Applications (IEC62566)
- Space (ECSS-Q-ST-60-02C)
