Written by a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) consultant designated engineering representative (DER) and an electronics hardware design engineer who together taught the DO-254 class at the Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics, Inc. (RTCA) in Washington, District of Columbia, USA, Airborne Electronic Hardware Design Assurance: A Practitioner's Guide to RTCA/DO-254 is a testimony to the lessons learned and wisdom gained from many years of first-hand experience in the design, verification, and approval of airborne electronic hardware. This practical guide to the use of RTCA/DO-254 in the development of airborne electronic hardware for safety critical airborne applications: Describes how to optimize engineering processes and practices to harmonize with DO-254 Addresses the single most problematic aspect of engineering and compliance to DO-254-poorly written requirements Includes a tutorial on how to write requirements that will minimize the cost and effort of electronic design and verification Discusses the common pitfalls encountered by practitioners of DO-254, along with how those pitfalls occur and what can be done about them Settles the ongoing debate and misconceptions about the true definition of a derived requirement Promotes embracing DO-254 as the best means to achieve compliance to it, as well as the best path to high-quality electronic hardware Airborne Electronic Hardware Design Assurance: A Practitioner's Guide to RTCA/DO-254 offers real-world insight into RTCA/DO-254 and how its objectives can be satisfied. It provides engineers with valuable information that can be applied to any project to make compliance to DO-254 as easy and problem-free as possible.

"This book, depicting the art of RTCA/DO-254 design assurance using the novel practitioner's approach, is based on the authors' and industry feedback, experiences, and lessons learned. Precise explanations ... provide efficient and clear guidelines directly applicable to appropriate engineering methodologies in defining, creating, and testing complex digital circuits for use in safety critical aircraft systems. ... The book's structure, mixing adequate regulatory needs accompanied with explanations and real examples, can be read with ease. The clear chaptering covers chronologically the aircraft electronic hardware lifecycle execution from planning to deployment, including configuration management and process assurance. Thus the reader can swiftly access material of interest, as chapters can easily be related to the well-known `V-model' development process. ... [ Readers of this book will] learn how to comply with Federal Aviation Regulations and RTCA/DO-254, and gain insight into engineering best practices for airborne electronic hardware design assurance. Requirement capture techniques are applied and demonstrated through examples-a first in this type of technical literature. ... A very high-level writing style is found across all sections of the book. This book shall be considered as `the reference' when designing safety critical aircraft systems. ... A tremendous book, setting founding grounds to be used by engineers, managers, and students involved or interested in airworthiness hardware certification and aiming to reduce cost, effort, re-work, and deployment schedules." -Dr. Patrick Mejasson, Thales Avionics, Paris, France "With a combined total of over 70 years of experience, Randall Fulton and Roy Vandermolen are veterans in aviation certification and airborne electronic hardware (AEH) development. Based on their vast and varied experience, they provide crucial information necessary to successfully manage, develop, and verify AEH. Reading this book is like sitting in a classroom with expert and battle-tested instructors. The concepts of AEH development, design, validation, and verification are clearly explained and illustrated. This book explains both the `why' and the `how' of critical concepts related to DO-254 compliance. Additionally, the material is written at a level that is practical for systems engineers, managers, and hardware engineers." -Leanna Rierson, Digital Safety Consulting, Wichita, Kansas, USA "The succinct manner in which the requirements development methodology is captured is worth the price of the book. ... provides a great reference for evaluating requirements development processes and standards." -Jeff Knickerbocker, Sunrise Certification and Consulting, Inc., Winfield, Kansas, USA
