Xilinx and LynuxWorks Demonstrate Avionics Application Solution at the Military and Aerospace Forum and Avionics USA Conference 2009
LynuxWorks LynxOS-178 DO-178B certifiable RTOS demonstrated on Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGAs
The combination of LynxOS-178 with the Virtex-5 FXT devices, offers the industry’s first FPGA-based solution to provide up to two industry-standard PowerPC(R) 440 processor blocks. Each processor, with integrated 32KB instruction and 32KB data caches, delivers up to 1,100 DMIPS at 550 MHz. Tightly coupled to the PowerPC 440 blocks is a new integrated 5×2 cross bar processor interconnect architecture that provides simultaneous access to I/O and memory. Highly integrated, this innovative interconnect architecture includes dedicated master and slave processor local bus interfaces, four DMA ports with separate transmit and receive channels, and a dedicated memory bus interface enabling high-performance, low latency point-to-point connectivity.
DO-178B has become a de facto standard that defines the guidelines for development of aviation software in the
