Does DO-254/CTS™ Support FPGAs with Serial High-speed I/Os?
November 20th, 2013 by Louie De Luna
As a DO-254 evangelist, I travel quite a bit attending conferences and meeting customers all over the world. One question I occasionally get from engineers is whether Aldec’s mil/aero verification solution, DO-254/CTS™, supports verification of FPGA designs with high speed interfaces (for example ARINC 818, LVDS, DDR3 or PCIe).
Depending where I’m at I’ll tell them, “Oui!” or “Hai!” or simply “You bet it does”. Occasionally I’ll respond, “화장실이 어디 있어요!” in hopes that someone will kindly direct me to the nearest restroom.
