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


If your designs are in any way safety critical then DO-254 will be important to your business.




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.
