Sital Technology and Logicircuit to Provide DO-254 Certified IP Cores for Avionic Data Buses

Kfar Saba, Israel, September 7, 2017 — Advanced data bus solutions provider Sital Technology, ltd. announces a new partnership with Logicircuit, Inc. and the resulting availability of DO-254 certified intellectual property (IP) cores for avionic products.

Sital Technology produces high-reliability connectivity FPGA IP cores, I/O cards, components and test system products for aerospace, defense and automotive products. On top of MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC825 protocol implementation, Sital also offers unique cyber security and intermittent wiring fault location detection solutions.

The partnership with Logicircuit focuses on offering MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC825 FPGA IP Cores with corresponding DO-254 certification packages. “Sital’s FGPA IP cores are integrated into many airborne platforms and end customers,” said Ilan Hayat, Vice President of Business Development at Sital, “Partnering with a trusted DO-254 certification provider, such as Logicircuit, expedites our customer’s development and production processes, and demonstrates Sital’s ongoing commitment to better quality products.”

Logicircuit, a provider of avionics design services for the past 18 years, offers DO-254 and DO-178C services and the industry’s largest portfolio of DO-254 compliant IP. Logicircuit creates new compliant cores or re-engineers the commercial IP cores of partners such as Sital, via a thoroughly vetted and approved process. This process results in a certification data package (CDP), which includes all the artifacts and support an aerospace company needs to be able to reuse that IP core in their DO-254 compliant FPGA with maximum efficiency and minimal risk.

“We are happy to finally offer a solution for DO-254 compliant MIL-STD-1553,” said Joe Goode, President of Logicircuit. “We believe the Sital core is the best offering for the industry, and the DO-254 compliant version of this highly requested IP core adds tremendous value to our Safe IPTM catalog.”

The new MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC825 FPGA IP cores are available for licensing on any FPGA design. For technical data sheets, evaluation kits and pricing information please visit

“Tail Code Key” is a method of enhancing MIL-STD-1553B and CAN bus maintenance quality by means of performing real time parametric testing on the bus. If functional testing results with “go” and “no-go”, which could be scaled as grade 100 and grade 0, “Tail Code Key” is a parametric test that will deliver a grade somewhere between 0 and 100.

There are three important benefits which are gained from the detailed grade:

The ability to detect failures before they impact functionality.
Physical location of failure on the bus.
Detection of single failure events during flight.

“Tail Code Key” is a set of numbers that are measured during flight in real time, 50 times a second. These numbers serve as a code – quality code. The code varies as a direct result of the quality of the bus.

If the bus connectors or wires degrade over time and usage, the measured code would change. Technicians get an early warning for problems that should be fixed before they fail the bus.

If single failure events occur during flight from physical stress or temperature changes, these single events impact the code, thus escape the tolerated margins. These events are recorded for repair. These single events downgrade the avionics communication quality exactly when they are critically needed. Typically such failures would not be traceable when the mission is complete.

Once the mission is done, bus problems are very hard to debug and require special equipment to pinpoint the exact physical location of the problem. In many cases the location is not found because the test is performed on wheels in 1G and in room temperature. Analyzing a recorded key code unveils the location of the problem.

The Tail Code Key technology is seamlessly integrated with Sital’s BRM1553D, ARINC825 and CAN bus IPs and enables advanced maintenance application development for avionic and automotive applications
