Developing Portable and Reusable Applications with Scade, the FaceTM Technical Standard, and ARINC 661
The Future Airborne Capability Environment technical standard (FACETM is a standard that promotes innovation and rapid integration of portable capabilities. It defines a powerful software interface modeling methodology and a run-time software architecture. For designers to efficiently develop FACE User Supplied Models (USM) for their Units of Portability (UoPs) and produce the code for the corresponding Units of Conformance (UoCs), robust tooling and processes are recommended.
This paper describes the tooling and process enhancement on the Ansys® SCADE® tools through customer feedback and evaluations primarily for developing UoPs for the Portable Components Segment (PCS) and PlatformSpecific Services Segment (PSSS) that are also ARINC 661 User Applications (UAs). Additionally, we introduce the strategy for putting the Ansys ARINC 661 Cockpit Display System (CDS) as a Graphics Service PCS and PSS through FACE Conformance and two customer use-cases utilizing the Ansys FACE and ARINC 661 solutions.
