Microsemi and eInfochips collaborate to improve efficiency, reliability and performance for critical avionics systems development and design

Microsemi Corporation, a leading provider of semiconductor solutions differentiated by power, security, reliability and performance, and eInfochips, a leading engineering R&D services company, today announced their collaboration to provide DO-254 compliant design services for the aerospace industry. Companies that build critical avionics systems can take advantage of the immunity to configuration upsets of Microsemi's award-winning FPGA-based products such as SmartFusion2® and IGLOO2®, and can rely on the leading design practices deployed by eInfochips to improve design efficiency, reliability and performance.

"Many of our aerospace customers are looking for ways to accelerate their product design. They seek reliable partners to supplement their expertise," said Ken O'Neill, director of marketing, space and aviation, at Microsemi. "Through our relationship with eInfochips, our customers can access proven DO-254 design experience for advanced, high performance, avionics systems using our highly reliable, low power FPGAs."

According to market outlook reports from Airbus and Boeing, approximately 1400–1800 new commercial airplanes will be manufactured each year between 2013 and 2032.

The next generation of avionics products aims to improve safety, speed and connectivity for aircraft platforms. Microsemi and eInfochips will positively impact this transition as a part of the global engineering community that designs advanced aerospace systems for critical and non-critical applications.

The industry-leading high reliability of Microsemi's families of FPGA products, arising from the complete absence of radiation-induced configuration upsets, is ideally suited for safety critical applications such as commercial aviation. Microsemi's Flash and antifuse FPGAs have been used in applications requiring DO-254 certification to design assurance level A and B (DAL-A, DAL-B)—the most stringent of safety critical applications in commercial aviation—and have achieved flight heritage on many commercial aircraft programs.

"Our clients strive to achieve reliability for their products, to clear FAA audits with minimal findings," said Parag Mehta, chief marketing and business development officer at eInfochips. "Microsemi's FPGAs, such as the IGLOO2 family, with SEU immune fabric configuration cells, provide the reliability essential for DO-254 compliant systems."

eInfochips' designs are already deployed on many leading global commercial and military aircraft. The company offers expertise on DO-254, DO-178B and DO-160 for product design, re-engineering and sustenance services. The company has hands-on experience with critical products like flight control systems, multi-function displays, navigation systems, communication equipment and cabin management systems, among others. Earlier this year, eInfochips was awarded the 'Global Supplier of the Year' for Engineering and Design Services by the leading aerospace supplier Rockwell Collins.
