Adherence to standard allows ON Semiconductor to collaborate with leading avionics companies and their subcontractors to develop innovative ASIC solutions for commercial aircraft applications















PHOENIX, Ariz. – Mar. 3, 2014 – ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN), driving energy efficient innovations, has announced that the digital application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) design flow methodology it employs fully supports the stringent requirements of commercial aircraft manufacturers that need to obtain DO-254 certification. This capability underlines ON Semiconductor’s credentials as a valuable custom silicon solutions provider to leading aerospace companies and their subcontract partners. A DO-254 compliant solution is an essential aspect of any system-on-a-chip designed for use in flight critical avionics applications.

The standard defines objectives that must be met by avionics equipment manufacturers according to European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) guidelines. DO-254 was formally recognized by the FAA in 2005 as a means of specifying the compliance of complex electronic hardware solutions used in airborne systems. The standard’s main purpose is to drive a discipline and methodology of capturing and tracking design requirements from the concept phase through development, validation and verification.

“The ability to offer custom ASIC solutions that support our customers’ compliance with the DO-254 standard means that the aerospace industry can take advantage of ON Semiconductor’s experience, knowledge and innovation to help them develop next generation avionics systems,” said Vince Hopkin, vice president, Military/Aerospace, Digital, Foundry, IPD and Image Sensor products division at ON Semiconductor. “This has already been demonstrated through our successful collaboration with Airbus on the development of an ASIC for the A350 XWB flight control computer, and is something we hope to replicate with other leading players in this market sector.”
