With the growing complexity and size of today’s FPGA and ASIC designs, requirements have also grown exponentially, and methodologies to effectively manage and track requirements have never been more crucial to produce high-quality, reliable and safe products on time and within budget. Safety-critical designs seeking DO-254 compliance face greater challenges with a strict requirements-based design and verification process that must be followed to ensure that the product built functions as intended based on the requirements.
Aldec’s requirements lifecycle management tool suite streamlines the requirements engineering process from capture to traceability, analysis to reporting and design to test results management. FPGA/ASIC requirements are automatically traced down to HDL design and testbench sources ensuring that each requirement has been fully implemented, covered and verified. Requirements coverage gaps and as well as unused HDL functions are easily exposed and reported using multi-directional traceability.
Aldec enables organizations to stay in control over the requirements throughout the development cycle, and bridges the gap across multiple stakeholders to maximize team efficiency and enhance team communication. Requirements management is key to increasing project success, consistency and repeatability
