Now with our subscription pricing model and especially with the promotional pricing of our Safe IP catalog, the safest choice is also the least expensive choice. That’s a win-win for both safety-critical designers and industry regulators.
ALPHARETTA, GA (PRWEB) February 23, 2015
Logicircuit, a leading DO-254 and DO-178C services company, today announced special promotional pricing for subscriptions to the company’s Safe IP(TM) catalog. The recently announced subscription model offers access to all intellectual property (IP) cores in the Safe IP catalog for one low annual rate. From March 1 to August 31, 2015, the company is offering this annual subscription for only $25,000 USD.
In 2014, Logicircuit announced the availability of a catalog of DO-254 compliant IP. While the IP is engineered to be compliant with the highest level of assurance (design assurance level, or DAL, A) for DO-254, and was originally targeted for avionics, companies across a broader spectrum of safety-critical industries have shown interest. The design assurance requirements for medical (IEC 62304), automotive (ISO 26262), industrial (IEC 61508), nuclear, and others are foundationally similar. Each core in the Safe IP catalog has undergone extensive review, analysis, testing, control, and incorporated the necessary modifications to meet the stringent standards of safety-critical design.
Before the availability of compliant IP, companies were forced to either design each functional block in-house as custom code, or re-architect their systems with costly redundancies and mitigations to eliminate any risks due to potentially defective IP. Then compliant IP began to trickle into the market. But due to the high cost of creating such IP, many companies struggled to obtain project budget for IP use, and thus were forced to continue designing custom IP or implementing design mitigations.
Now subscription access is offering these companies a long sought after option of compliant IP for improved design productivity at a reasonable price. With a subscription model, the cost comes out of corporate operating expense as opposed to struggling project budgets. With the promotional pricing, the economic advantage of using compliant IP is unquestionable.
“Safety-critical markets have been struggling with what to do about IP, mostly due to the cost involved in seeking compliance,” said Michelle Lange, Director of Sales and Marketing at Logicircuit. “Now with our subscription pricing model and especially with the promotional pricing of our Safe IP catalog, the safest choice is also the least expensive choice. That’s a win-win for both safety-critical designers and industry regulators.”
