At the FACE and SOSA Expo & TIM in Sept 2019, Wind River and Curtiss-Wright collaborated to demonstrate the benefits of combining the separation principles of an ARINC 653 Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) architecture with FACE™ components in a safety-critical system. The demonstration showcased Wind River’s UoCs integrated in Curtiss-Wright’s multi-core VPX3-152 single board computer (SBC). The VPX3-152, featuring NXP’s QorIQ T2080 Power Architecture processor and available in both DO-254 DAL A safety-certifiable and non-certifiable variants, provided the hardware foundation for Wind River’s VxWorks 653 DO-178C DAL A safety-certifiable RTOS and Basic Avionics Lightweight Source Archetype (BALSA) applications. As well, the demo featured Bell’s EGI application (PSSS) and serial I/O adapter (IOSS).
