Detailed Design for DO-254 projects
The actual development work begins in the detailed design phase, which models the design without actually producing the physical hardware.
HDL coding occurs during this phase. Synthesis and place-and-route processes, which help bridge the transition from design to implementation, begin in this phase and are sometimes considered part of Implementation.
Mentor Graphics simplifies DO-254 compliance in the Detailed Design phase
HDL Designer is highly tuned to the needs of DO-254 projects. It can provide a productive framework for DO-254 and other requirements-based design projects.
- Extensive RTL editing, code checking, and reuse assurance features
- Advanced ability to produce design artifacts and web-based review/audit sites
- Integrates with configuration management tools and other design tools in your flow

Using HDL Designer to Facilitate DO-254 Compliant and Safety-Critical Design Processes
White Paper: DO-254 is a recent challenge facing aerospace companies, and in some cases, companies serving other safety- and mission-critical markets. HDL design falls under the DO-254 lifecycle category “Detailed...
Understanding and Running DO-254 Coding Checks in HDL Designer
White Paper: DO-254 discusses the need for "Design Standards" and Order 8110-105 takes this a step further, discussing the specific need for HDL coding standards. Because of this, many companies having to...
