Spec-TRACER is a unified requirements lifecycle management solution designed specifically for FPGA and ASIC designs. It facilitates requirements capture, management, impact analysis, traceability and reporting. Spec-TRACER seamlessly integrates with your HDL design and simulation tools and also integrates directly with IBM Rational DOORS.
For the safety-critical- or requirements-driven design of a programmable device or ASIC, one of the most important criteria is to demonstrate that all the system requirements are met within the design. You will also be required to show documentary proof of this, and that the requirements have been verified by your test cases.
Spec-TRACER is an extremely versatile management tool, designed specifically to help streamline the requirements engineering process, optimise the development cycle, improve collaboration and reduces risk and cost.
