How to simplify ICDs for better, faster Embedded Avionics Systems design


Controlling the thousands of signals that are transmitted every second aboard an aircraft is one of the most complex and critical jobs of today’s avionics engineers. Designing a well-integrated systems architecture that is reliable enough to ensure consistent aircraft performance and passenger safety, and capturing all the details of that complex architecture in Interface Control Documents (ICDs) is no easy task.

The new ANSYS® SCADE System® Avionics Package is an industry-specific solution that enables you to simplify and accelerate the ICD design process by deploying Model-Based System Engineering (MBSE) processes and best practices. With it, you can integrate the system in a step-by-step manner while ensuring that all relevant protocols have been met. And you can completely automate the creation of an ICD, reflecting any minor component changes at the system level. You can read more about this in the White Paper, “A Model-Based Solution for Avionics Systems Engineering - the New Industry Imperative.”

You can also join us on March 24, 2016 for the webinar, SCADE System Avionics Package: How to Design Comprehensive ICDs,” to learn how the new ANSYS SCADE System Avionics Package can help you streamline the process for creating ICDs. Our industry experts will also discuss ANSYS solutions can assist you in understanding and meeting the requirements of many standard protocols, including ARINC 653, ARINC 429, CAN and ARINC 664, to ensure the integrity of all your safety-critical avionics systems.
