ANSYS SCADE Display facilitates embedded graphics, display and HMI development, and certified code generation for safety-critical displays — such as cockpit, head-up, helmet-mounted, flight management system, traffic and collision avoidance, and health and usage monitoring displays, as well as onboard airport navigation systems and digital maps.

With native support for the OpenGL® SC (Safety Critical) and ES (Embedded System) standards, SCADE Display represents a new generation of graphics software development tools, spanning prototyping, display design, simulation, verification and validation, and certified code generation for several safety standards.

SCADE Display drastically reduces critical project costs by providing WYSIWYG design entry with automatic qualified code generation technology. SCADE Display KCG Code Generator is qualifiable as a development tool under DO-178B, and as a DO-330 TQL-1 tool under DO-178C. It is certified under ISO 26262, IEC 61508:2010 at T3/SIL 3, and EN 50128:2011 at T3/SIL 3/4.

Xmbots develops UAVs for civilian markets, including agriculture, environmental, security and energy.  The Brazilian-based company must comply with aviation certification standards, like DO-178 when developing UAVs for the Brazilian market.  This is why they chose to use SCADE as part of their development process.  Their development cycle went from 2 years for an entirely hand-codded application to 6 months with SCADE.

SCADE Display On-Board the Airbus A380 and A400M

SCADE Display On-Board the Airbus A380 and A400M

Airbus and Thales Avionics have been using SCADE Display together with SCADE Suite to develop the A380 Control and Display System (CDS). The integration of SCADE Display and SCADE Suite facilitates the complete specification of graphics and associated behavior. 

In addition to the CDS application, the innovative A380 On-board Airport Navigation System display also benefits from the safety-critical OpenGL capabilities of SCADE Display and SCADE Display KCG.
