Real-time displays for electronic flight bags is aim of DDC-I, Quantum3D safety-critical avionics software partnership
SAN JOSE, Calif., 24 Feb. 2011. Software companies DDC-I Inc. in Phoenix and Quantum3D in San Jose, Calif., are working together to provide a safety-critical, real-time display solution for next-generation electronic flight bag (EFB) cockpit display applications.
“We have deployed our IGL-178 technology in multiple programs,” reveals Ray Niacaris, director of EVC sales at Quantum3D. “In addition to its ability to be integrated into safety critical applications, the IGL-178 OpenGL software GPU also offers power consumption savings and 20 year product life cycles, both of which are vital requirements for aerospace applications.”
Deos is a DO-178B Level A-certifiable embedded RTOS used in safety-critical avionics applications on military and commercial aircraft. A differentiator is its patented "slack scheduling," designed to deliver high CPU utilization.
