ABSTRACT
The article reports on the joint venture made between Altera Corp. and Mentor Graphics Corp. The purpose of its team up is to develop tools and methodologies for use in creating DO-254-certified intellectual property (IP) that targets Altera's field programmable gate arrays and HardCopy application-specific integrated circuits. Moreover, its joint work is to establish design and verification best practices for DO-254-certifiable IP development and integration flows.
