AFuzion's new CAST-32A Multi-Core Processing Training Launched to Wide Acclaim

November 19, 2018 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
AFuzion's new CAST-32A Multi-Core Processing for Avionics and Safety-Critical developers has launched with strong acclaim. The future of embedded processing is via multi-core processors as the need for added processing power has surpassed the ability of CPU's to keep up. However, multi-core processors utilize shared cache, shared memory, and shared communications I/O. This sharing between the MCP cores produces potential interference which can violate the very "determinism" requisite for certifiable safety-critical systems. For example, avionics DO-178C and DO-254 require adherence to CAST-32A, recently updated by the worldwide Certification Authorities Software Team (CAST).
CAST-32A is the worldwide (America, Europe, Asia) team's effort for ensuring safe implementation of Multi-Core Processing (MCP) within avionics systems. Increasingly, MCP's are used in avionics and understanding what must be done to plan for, implement, and verify deterministic "safe" MCP development via CAST-32A is the focus of this AFuzion 2-day private training course. Attendees will understand how to utilize multiple-cores providing simultaneous operations using deterministically shared resources such as cache, memory, and communications and performing MCP CAST-32A Interference Analysis. Attendees will also learn how to work with RTOS vendors and RTOS's themselves to comply with CAST-32A and develop safer avionics.

Mr. Vance Hilderman, AFuzion's CTO and principal developer of AFuzion's CAST-32A training states "CAST-32A is increasingly relevant to avionics developers but users find it vague and challenging to understand. AFuzion's 2-day CAST-32A Training teaches attendees how to properly understand, deploy, and verify MCP-based applications. AFuzion's training was recently provided with our industry partner Lynx Software to 45 senior MCP developers in Huntsville Alabama and it was a resounding success; all the attendees stated it was highly worthwhile and crisply delivered to provide a true practical understanding of CAST-32A deployment for avionics via DO-178C and DO-254. AFuzion's actual trainers have trained over 19,500 engineers from all 100 of the world's 100 leading avionics companies, which is more than all other trainers in the world, COMBINED."
