AS-2 Embedded Computing Systems Committee
The SAE AS-2 Embedded Computing Systems committee addresses all facets of embedded computing systems-design, maintenance, and in-service experience. It focuses on the philosophy, requirements, definitions, and user issues associated with embedded computing systems. This includes open architecture instruction set architectures (ISAs) implementation technologies, standards and verification, internal interfaces and partitioning, software support systems and tools, fault tolerance, security, and multi-processor concepts. The group is comprised of three subcommittees dedicated to creating, preparing, and maintaining all relevant specifications, standards, and requirements for embedded computing systems. These subcommittees include:
AS-2A Generic Open Architecture
AS-2B Operating System Application Program Interface
AS-2C Avionics Architecture Description Language
Participants in the SAE AS-2 committee include OEMs, suppliers, aircraft embedded computing systems companies, consulting firms, government and others across the aerospace and defense industries.
