Performance is a leader in Embedded Platform Software Development and Support for both highly regulated avionics platforms governed by the standards outlined in RTCA/DO-178B Software Considerations in Airborne Systems, and their supporting simulation environments. Performance has been integrally involved with several large-scale, embedded Platform development efforts and has supported the full software lifecycle beginning with high-level Architecture and Systems-level requirements through Formal Verification and Certification Support. Simulation capabilities include full development of HMI-based system configuration and regression tool sets, supporting I/O driver development for informal verification, networked Platform System Simulations, and tool qualifications.
Performance has a significant amount of Platform development experience working with several Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS) including: WindRiver ARINC 653 VxWorks, Wind River psoSystem, Green Hills ARINC 653 INTEGRITY, LynuxWorks LynxOS, Digital Engine Operating System (DEOS), and Mentor Graphics VRTX.
Our team are experts in Platform Applications, Platform Features, and Platform Driver Development and Support. Platform Applications represent the set of higher-level integrated products and tools that facilitate system operation and provide an essential support role. Performance’s Platform Application expertise includes development of a Data Load Client, Health Manager (HM), Support and Maintenance (SM), and Time Manager (TM).
Performance’s proficiency in Platform Features consist of the core functionality that provides peripheral system-level interfaces to end-users. Performance’s Platform Feature expertise includes development of Health Monitoring, Network Server System (NSS) Server Crossover Interface, Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP), and Flight-Input Data-Output (FIDO).
Performance’s skill in Platform Drivers is an aggregate of software components that form the foundation of the embedded operating system’s ability to enable device communication. Performance’s Driver experience includes development of DMA Drivers, Network Stack Optimizations, Network File System (NFS), Graphics Module Core, and TCP/IP Stack drivers.
