DuplicaTTor® Design Suite (DDS-0405)
The DuplicaTTor® Design Suite 0405 (DDS-0405) is intended to facilitate the development of industrial / generic designs in compliance with IEC 61508 (at ‘SIL 3’); machinery designs in compliance with ISO 13849 (at ‘Pl e’); household goods in compliance with IEC 60730 / IEC 60335 (at ‘Class C’); medical equipment in compliance with IEC 62304 (at ‘Class C’); and automotive designs in compliance with ISO 26262 (at ‘ASIL D’).
DDS-0405 can also be used to prototype civil aircraft designs in compliance with DO-178C (up to ‘DAL A’).

The DDS-0405 ‘Example Configuration’
The DDS-0405 package is based around an ‘example configuration’ (the ‘DDS-0405-EC’). This comprehensive software framework illustrates how to create a complete ‘fail safe’ ‘Time Triggered’ (TT) design that targets two STM32F405 microcontrollers (MCUs).
An overview of the DDS-0405-EC is provided in the figure below.
The DDS-0405 package includes two further software configurations that provide support for collection of key timing measurements (including ‘Worst-Case Execution Time’ and ‘Best-Case Execution Time’ ), and the generation of comprehensive system models known as ‘Tick Lists’.
A full ‘Software Requirements Specification’ (SoRS) for the DDS-0405-EC is also included in the DDS-0405 package.
When the DDS-0405-EC is adapted in accordance with the guidelines presented in the related safety manual, the DDS-0405 package is intended to facilitate the rapid development of fail-safe products in compliance with key international safety standards.
 The DuplicaTTor family is primarily intended as an effective foundation for ‘SIL 3’ and equivalent designs developed in compliance with a range of international safety standards.
 When developing ‘SIL 4’ and equivalent designs, an heterogeneous hardware platform may be required (using two different MCUs). In these circumstances the DuplicaTTor family can be employed as an effective prototyping platform (and we can provide a custom hardware platform for your product: please refer to the DEB-0405 page for further details).
 Use of the DuplicaTTor family is not recommended for ‘SIL 0’ (and equivalent) designs: please refer to ‘ERES2‘ for alternative design solutions.
 The DuplicaTTor family can be applied when developing ‘SIL 1’ / ‘SIL 2’ (and equivalent) designs but is not usually necessary: please consider a CorrelaTTor platform (presented in ‘ERES2‘) as a cost-effective alternative.
