8 Sections

First published in 2004, the FAA advisory circular “Reusable Software Components” (AC 20-148) provides many with substantial assistance for scaling the DO-178 mountain. According to that Advisory Circular, the developers of third party components which have achieved Reusable Software Component Certification (RSCC)  “…partially satisfy the applicable RTCA/DO-178 … objectives, while the integrator or applicant completes and shows the compliance for the integrated software package, systems aspects, and aircraft certification.”  

Learn more here of the perils of software reuse in general, of how RSCs have been successfully applied in safety critical applications to dateand of how the increased impact of security considerations might influence future RSCs.
