DO-254 Training: Avionics Hardware


DO-254 Training: Avionics Hardware Course – Hands-on

DO-254 Training: Avionics Hardware discusses various angles of DO-254 guideline and will help you develop and implement this standard in your organization.

DO-254, aka Eurocae ED-80, is an official avionics guideline, which demonstrates strategies of design assurance associated with airborne electronic hardware. DO-254 covers the required information comprehensively from the conceptual design, through planning, designating, executing, verifying, to validation. It also contains DO-254 Tool Qualification considerations. Presently, it is mandatory for most avionics projects to comply with a DO-254 certification. DO-254 training will help you fully learn all of these steps to execute in your own organization.

DO-254 Tool Qualification

Developing hardware demands using several tools including the tools for design, implementation, synthesis, simulation, libraries, verification, and physical coverage. DO-254 tool qualification relates to developing and verifying such tools. Various qualification requirements pertain to each, while most tools do NOT need to be qualified. But if necessary or mandated, DO-254 tool qualification uses a subset of DO-254. DO-254 training will also cover this part of the DO-254 guideline to ensure you are able to apply DO-254 Tool Qualification procedure when required.

DO-254 Training Format:

This training course is mostly practical. The most majority of the course is dedicated to labs, individual/group class activities, and hands-on workshops. Once the participants receive all the required theories and concepts through presentations, they immediately experience what they are taught with real-world projects and case studies.
