High Performance Embedded Graphics Solutions for Safety Critical and other High Reliability Systems
ALT Software is one of the world’s leading providers of embedded graphics software to aerospace and defence systems manufacturers.
We provide graphics enabling software for target environments that range from powerful embedded systems with the latest cutting edge graphics processors to resource constrained low-power devices that rely on software alone for graphics rendering. Our embedded graphics products and software engineering services have been used extensively in the design and manufacture of mission and safety critical display systems used in commercial and military aircraft, naval vessels and land vehicles. Our products include cockpit display drivers certifiable to the DO-178B (up to Design Assurance Level A) guideline for safety-critical systems in aircraft. Our Development Services group also provides our customers with DO-178B certifiable software development and integration services to support custom system configurations and proprietary applications.
ALT’s device enabling software solutions and display drivers support the OpenGL, OpenGL ES and OpenGL SC (Safety Critical) graphics API and are currently deployed in a wide range of embedded aerospace and defence applications. With over 15 years of experience creating software for aerospace and defence manufacturers, our field-tested graphics solutions meet the strictest standards for performance and reliability.
