Certifiable OS Supports Mission Ready Display Computer

Abaco Systems’ DO-178 safety certifiable operating system Deos from DDC-I is now available for Abaco's DO-254 certifiable mission ready FORCE2 rugged display computer, as well as the SBC314 single board computer. Deos is certifiable to DO-178 Design Assurance Level A (DAL A).

Deos is a field-proven, safety critical, in-flight, avionics RTOS that hosts a multitude of flight critical functions, such as air data computers, air data inertial reference units, cockpit video, displays and flight instrumentation, flight management systems, and engine management.  Built from the ground up for safety critical applications, Deos has been certified to DO-178 DAL A since 1998, and is the only certifiable time- and space-partitioned COTS RTOS that has been created using RTCA DO-178, Level A processes from the first day of its product development. Deos features deterministic real-time response as well as time and space partitioning. Deos also features patented slack scheduling, which enables it to deliver higher CPU utilization than any other certifiable safety critical COTS RTOS.

Abaco's mission ready FORCE2 rugged display computer features a 3U VPX single board computer which offers a choice of either the Qualcomm (formerly NXP/Freescale) QorIQ™ T2081 1.8GHz high performance processor or the T1042 1.4GHz low power processor, supported by up to 8 GBytes of memory. It also includes AMD Radeon™ 8860 or coreAVI E8860 graphics processing units. As well as its support for the Deos operating system it also features specially developed drivers/APIs meaning that applications developed on FORCE2 will be conformant with the FACE initiative.
