MHI Aerospace Systems Corporation (MASC) has selected the QGen toolset to develop the software for the Throttle Quadrant Assembly (TQA) system. This avionics research project is being conducted to meet the Level C objectives in the DO-178C safety standard for airborne software and its DO-331 supplement on Model-Based Development and Verification. The use of a qualified code generator can help save significant effort in developing and verifying the software, and the future availability of qualification material from AdaCore factored strongly in MASC’s decision to choose QGen. The QGen code generator can be qualified at the highest Tool Qualification Level, TQL-1 (equivalent to a development tool in DO-178B).
