Verisense Provides VS-254 FPGA DO-254 Level A and B Verification Tester Tool to Multiple Customers

First solution to provide complete support for High Speed Interfaces

Jerusalem, Israel – September 22, 2014 - Verisense, a leading provider of DO-254 solutions and services, announced today that they have provided the VS-254 FPGA verification tester tool to multiple avionics customers to assist in the certification of their DO-254 Level A and B products. 

The VS-254 is the only solution available in the market that provides the complete required DO-254 functionality also for high speed interfaces, including pin-level verification on all pins and full robustness testing on all high speed interfaces. 

“Our FPGA includes a DDR3 high speed interface. Verisense was the only solution in the market providing the level of observability and robustness testing we required for the DO-254 certification of our device" said Amnon Manneberg, Program Manager at Elbit Systems of America. "In addition to their innovative testing solution, Verisense proved to be an excellent partner, taking on the actual test execution, and freeing up our team to focus on the EVS-SP.”

"DO-254 does not define exactly how to run the verification. Till now, developers and DERs approved results based on "best effort". Now that Verisense has demonstrated a complete solution including support for high speed interfaces, we expect this to become a de-facto requirement" said Nir Weintroub, Verisense VP of Business Development. 

The VS-254 includes many enhanced features to reduce the verification effort and to make the engineering effort predictable. These include a high degree of reuse between the simulation environment and the hardware verification, built-in support for regression and waivers, and the VS Sys-sim tool for easier debug of test failures. The VS-254 is assembled from discrete functional modules to allow customers to pay only for the functions they need, and to then to reuse functional modules across multiple projects.

"Verisense is first and foremost a services company. Our solution is much more than just a board. We are experts in DO-254 verification and we are happy to take upon ourselves any aspect of the DO-254 verification process to suit the customer needs" said Pini Lozowick, Verisense co-CEO.

Verisense will be presenting their unique approach for DO-254 HW verification for FPGA high speed interfaces at the 33rd Digital Avionics Systems Conference (DASC) in Colorado Springs, October 7th.
