Radstone, Datel, and Wind River team builds DO-178B certifiable platform

WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Sept. 1, 2004. Radstone Technology today announced availability of Seaweed's Certifiable Open GL on a platform that combines Radstone hardware, a certifiable BSP in development for Radstone by Ultra Electronics Datel, and Wind River's VxWorks AE653.

"We're delighted to be extending our relationship with Seaweed -- an industry leader -- to help create a certifiable solution that we believe will greatly enlarge the market opportunity for Radstone products," said Simon Collins, graphics product manager at Radstone Technology. "Not only does this announcement allow new customers to take advantage of Radstone's state of the art graphics capabilities, it also allows them to achieve DO-178B certifiable solutions more readily than was previously possible."

Debuted at the Farnborough Air Show, the new capability will receive its first major public showing in North America on the Ultra Electronics Datel stand at the Digital Avionics Systems Conference (Salt Lake City, October 24-28). It will be shown concurrently on the Ultra Electronics Datel stand at the Military Avionics Show (London, England, October 28-29).

"This announcement represents a significant step forward in the availability of a true, off the shelf, certifiable solution," said Phil Cole of Seaweed Systems. "Customers should have a high degree of confidence in an offering that is the result of the combined efforts of the industry's leading players. We're delighted to be working with Radstone, and to see Seaweed's certifiable Open GL becoming more widely available."

OpenGL is a viable solution for avionics application development as the cost is less, the route to certification is more certain and the timescales are shortened.

"We see growing demand for systems that are certifiable to DO-178B," said Joe Wlad, product manager for safety critical products, Wind River. "But until now, customers have been forced to engineer the hardware platform in house. This announcement is important because it provides customers with a larger element of their final application, combining hardware, operating system software and development tools -- and the provider of each of the elements is a leader in its own right."

Seaweed Systems is a software house specializing in X Window System and OpenGL products and services for embedded graphics applications. The company's COTS software products are geared for the realtime/embedded marketplace and offer aggressive performance, feature set, support, and implementation schedules. To serve the ever-increasing number of embedded graphics programs that require safety-critical certification, Seaweed has successfully launched its Seawind/178B family of DO-178B certifiable OpenGL subset API products.
