This Course introduces DO-254 – the worldwide standard for commercial avionics hardware development. Attendees will learn about aircraft safety, systems, hardware planning, hardware requirements, and hardware design/implementation/test. The entire ecosystem of aviation avionics hardware development will be summarized including DO-254C’s relationship to other standards including ARP-4761 for Safety and ARP-4754A for Systems Development.
Attendees will learn about common DO-254 mistakes and how to prevent them. Also, industry-best practices for real-world hardware development will be presented. Attendees will learn how to minimize DO-254 risks and costs while maximizing hardware quality for successful avionics development.
By attending this seminar, you will be able to:
This seminar is designed for Avionics Hardware Managers and Engineers from aviation industry.
