Multicore processors are being rapidly adopted by the avionics industry due to their improved Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) characteristics combined with the diminishing availability of single-core processors. Whilst more powerful, multicore-based systems present a set of additional challenges when it comes to verifying and certifying avionics systems. NXP, Curtiss-Wright and Rapita Systems are leading the industry approach to solving the verification and certification challenges multicore processors present.
In this webinar, experts from the companies describe where their solutions fit into the multicore avionics ecosystem and how they work together to enable the safe use of multicore processors in safety-critical systems (as per CAST-32A and AMC 20-193). The presenters also describe how you can participate in industry working groups like the Multi-Core For Avionics (MCFA) group, which grants industry stakeholders access to normally-restricted multicore hardware IP.
This technical event also features a live demonstration of the latest hardware and software technologies designed to solve multicore challenges.
