DO-254 Support for FPGA Design Flows
For most defense engineers, the first time they hear about the DO-254 Design Assurance Standard is in a request from their customer beginning with the words "Thou shalt comply with?" This leaves many engineers and engineering managers unsure on how to get started on the DO-254 process. Because DO-254 is a high-level, process-oriented standard, responsibility for design assurance necessarily requires a team approach among designers and suppliers. As such, defense organizations should seek out team solutions and partnerships with suppliers in order to best meet the needs of their customers.
