DO-254 and ED-80. What is it and why should you care?



Today, aviation safety agencies around the world mandate use of DO-254 (ED-80 in Europe) for airborne electronic hardware, primarily for PLD/FPGA/ASIC designs. It is also being recognized as a mechanism to enforce good design practice and as such, other safety- and mission-critical markets (such as military, medical, transportation and others) are also beginning to adopt DO-254 as a requirement as well.

This complimentary web seminar will provide an overview of why your business will need to adopt DO-254, what value this will bring and how Mentor Graphics can be of help.

What You Will Learn

  • An understanding of DO-254
  • Why DO-254 is important for your business
  • The value DO-254 will bring
  • How Mentor Graphics can be of help

About the Presenter

Michelle Lange, a 22 year veteran of the EDA industry, has spent her career working in numerous aspects of marketing and technical communications. Michelle is now the Marketing Manager for the System Modeling and Analysis (SMA) business unit in the System Level Engineering (SLE) division. In this role, Michelle is responsible for the market strategy and messaging for the SystemVision, SVX, and BridgePoint products. Prior to this, Michelle was the DO-254 and Design Assurance Program Manager at Mentor Graphics where she worked with customers striving to meet DO-254 (and similar regulatory compliance), the product teams within Mentor that developed the tools/features required for these flows, partners in the industry who offered complimentary services and tools, and industry organizations such as the DO-254 User’s Group (in both EU and the US) whose participants focused on DO-254 issues. She also continues to be a member of the SAE S-18 committee, the group responsible for developing the system level development and safety-standards for civil aviation. Previous to her DO-254 focused role, Michelle held a variety of technical and marketing positions in several product divisions at Mentor including Design-for-Test and Design Verification. She has a BSEE (Maxima Cum Laude) from the University of Portland and MBA (Summa Cum Laude) from University of Phoenix.
