MELBOURNE, Fla., 12 May 2016. Rockwell Collins engineers in Melbourne, Florida, sought help to gain DO-254 Level C Airborne Electronic Hardware (AEH) TSO approval for its RTA-4218 Weather Radar. They found that help at CERTON, a provider of safety-critical certification tools and services, also in Melbourne, Fla.
CERTON professionals worked directly with Rockwell Collins engineers to ensure two separate field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) were uniquely validated and verified to perform their correct intended function against their respective hardware requirements.
CERTON was able to seamlessly integrate with Rockwell Collins approved processes and generate the outputs and artifacts required for TSO approval of the RTA-4218 Weather Radar product. The test environments included simulation test benches, as well as In Circuit Testing (ICT) of the complex hardware.
“The opportunity to build strong relationships in our hometown of Melbourne, FL with Rockwell Collins is something we don’t take for granted and it’s gratifying to see CERTON’s unique safety-critical engineering tools and services be applied toward our customer’s continued success,” says Tim Stockton, president and CEO at CERTON.
Over the past decade, CERTON has established an identity of unparalleled safety‑critical certification solutions in the aerospace, medical device, and transportation industries. CERTON has internally developed tools and exclusive technology designed to streamline approvals of safety-critical systems, software, and complex hardware. These competitive advantages allow CERTON to minimize the time-to-market of customer products while providing a Firm‑Fixed Cost to its customers, officials say.
