Jun 16 14
Aldec Inc. announced that Elbit Systems Ltd. has successfully passed a critical verification audit by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) with Aldec's DO-254/CTS(TM) as the primary FPGA physical testing platform.

Elbit verified FPGA pin-level requirements using DO-254/CTS custom boards and verified board level requirements using their target board. By deploying Aldec's DO-254/CTS in their verification flow, Elbit increased functional verification coverage by test and reduced the overall verification cycle. EASA supported Elbit's FPGA testing approach facilitated by Aldec's DO-254/CTS.
