From Safety Critical Hardware to the Complete Safety Critical Platform
Core Avionics & Industrial Inc.’s (“CoreAVI”) story begins in 2005 with the launch of a related company, Channel One, in the United Kingdom. Channel One UK was founded with the aim of bridging the life-cycle gap between avionics systems and commercial semiconductors. Channel One achieved this and played a role in assisting major aviation corporations around the world to manage and maintain end-of-life electronic components for the production of safety critical avionics systems.
Channel One US is founded and is headquartered in Tampa, Florida to better serve its rapidly growing portfolio of US customers.
CoreAVI was formed in 2011 to offer combined safety critical OpenGL graphics and video driver products with graphics processors. CoreAVI’s overlapping expertise in hardware and software allowed it to rapidly grow into a trusted supplier to avionics, military, and industrial system designers around the world. CoreAVI expanded to support many of the industry’s leading graphics hardware platforms from suppliers such as Intel, AMD, and NXP with a portfolio of RTCA DO-178C/EUROCAE ED-12C OpenGL drivers and DO-254 certification artifacts. CoreAVI’s software products are compatible with all major real-time operating systems including those from DDC-I, Wind River, Green Hills, Lynx Technologies, QNX, SYSGO, as well as many proprietary systems.
In 2017, CoreAVI expanded into the COTS hardware market, creating safety critical COTS-D (or COTS-Design) hardware IP. With COTS-D, CoreAVI introduced a unique way for customers to reduce their risk, time to market, and overall costs.
In 2019, CoreAVI extended its product portfolio to include VkCore SC, a safety critical graphics and compute driver based on Khronos’ Vulkan API that supports GPU compute technologies, enabling customers to harness the full capabilities of graphics processing and advanced computing, all in one API. Along with VkCore SC, CoreAVI has released its ComputeCore safety critical compute libraries to enable accelerated computing capabilities and autonomous systems.
2020 – Present
In 2020, CoreAVI expanded its expertise to include safety critical computer vision and artificial intelligence. VkCoreVX™ SC, a safety critical implementation of Khronos’ OpenVX™ 1.3 industry standard API, was released to enable safety critical customers to implement and design convolutional neural networks, support vector machines, Gaussian filtering, optical flow, and more. CoreAVI’s SafeAICore stack, including Vulkan, GPU compute, and SafeAI capabilities, is the basis for modern data processing, machine learning, and computer vision systems.
The breadth and depth of CoreAVI’s product line allows system designers to procure their entire safety critical platform from one vendor while achieving the correct level of performance, and the right features, for virtually any safety critical application. As a result, CoreAVI has grown to provide state of the art technology to more than 155 major aerospace and defense programs in over 25 countries around the globe. CoreAVI now brings its successful avionics technology to the automotive, high-speed rail, and industrial IoT markets. To serve these industries, CoreAVI has achieved ISO 26262 product compliance and our developments are based on the functional safety principles of IEC 61508.
For customers requiring safety-critical systems, CoreAVI is the partner of choice.
