Synthesis and DO-254 Considerations



This presentation provides a brief overview of DO-254 and then discusses FPGA synthesis challenges and solutions in the DO-254 environment.

DO-254 is a growing challenge in military and aerospace programs. Methodologies, tools, and flows for processes such as FPGA synthesis must take DO-254 requirements into consideration.

What You Will Learn

  • Overview of DO-254
  • Issues and Concerns with Synthesis in a DO-254 Program
  • Features of Precision that Assist with DO-254 Needs

About the Presenter

Presenter Image Michelle Lange

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.
