CAST Adds DO-254 Avionics Interface Cores Through New Partnership with Nolam

Nolam IP cores for MIL-STD 1553, ARINC-429, and ARINC-825 are field-proven and DO-254 compliant

WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., June 1, 2017 — (PRNewswire) —  Semiconductor IP provider CAST, Inc. today announced a new partnership with Nolam Embedded Systems, and the resulting availability through CAST of several Nolam avionics-related IP cores.

Nolam Embedded Systems is a successful developer and integrator of real-time embedded systems. The company provides IP, board-level, and complete integrated system products, and primarily serves the aerospace, defense naval and aerospace, and industrial markets.

The partnership initially focuses on adding three Nolam IP cores for avionics standards to the CAST product line:

  • The MIL-STD 1553 core is a serial data bus controller for avionics, space, and sever environment applications. It supports single, dual or quad channels and the standard's BC, RT, and BM modes.
  • The ARINC-429 core is a point-to-point serial data bus controller typically used in commercial aricraft systems. It supports any number of receiver and transmitter channels.
  • The ARINC-825 core is a bus controller conforming to this aerospace-tailored version of the CAN 2.0 bus standard.

DO-254 design process compliance is available for all three cores—with Certification Data Packages for Design Assurance Levels E through A—eliminating for developers of safety-critical products the difficult challenge of satisfying this quality standard.  Furthermore, these cores have already been deployed in numerous customer designs, proving their reliability and robustness in the field. A complete supporting ecosystem is readily available, including FPGA mezzanine cards (FMCs) for easy evaluation prior to purchase.

"Lives are literally at stake if the buses and interfaces deep within airplane systems ever fail to perform," said Nikos Zervas, chief executive officer for CAST. "System designers aware of our leadership in CAN FD have often asked for DO-254 qualified avionics cores, and we're very happy now to not only satisfy their requests but to actually surpass their expectations with these robust and field-proven cores from Nolam."

"At Nolam Embedded Systems, we've built our reputation on developing the appropriate technical solutions for the challenging markets we serve," said Benjamin Nakache, vice president of sales for Nolam. "We're now proud to partner with CAST—one of the world's best in their field of marketing and selling IP cores—to help get Nolam IP to even more design teams who might benefit from it."

The new cores have undergone CAST's quality and reusability reviews, and are available this month with CAST's royalty-free licensing. Each is ready for FPGA implementation and is vendor and device agnostic. Visit to see technical data, request evaluation systems, and more.
