ReqTracer links, manages, and tracks requirements from multiple sources throughout the design process. It also provides automated documentation and reports at any stage and manages the impact of requirement changes.

Determining if design requirements are met implies you can track them from specification through RTL description and on to verification results—a best practice for any requirements-based design flow. ReqTracer lets you easily implement and track a requirements-driven project development process.

Introducing ReqTracer

The ability to completely trace and manage design requirements from specification through implementation and verification is simply “good project management”. ReqTracer facilitates the deployment of a requirements-driven design flow, while allowing project teams to focus on their implementation and verification work for maximum efficiency.

It is only when functionality and verification results fully meet the requirements, that a project is complete and the project team can confidently put the product into production. This is beneficial to all projects, but especially needed in Safety Critical applications and mandatory for DO-254 and ISO 26262 certification, where product failure could result in injuries or fatalities.

Project Management

ReqTracer provides an interactive tool to help implement and track a requirements-driven project development process, and facilitate continuous process improvement.

Requirements Traceability

ReqTracer is an efficient solution for managing requirements traceability and impact analysis across hardware and software project lifecycles. ReqTracer simplifies, automates, and enables requirements traceability from specification of the hardware specification through HDL coding, implementation, and validation.


Safety-Critical Design

ReqTracer provides detailed tracing of requirements into design source and verification results to demonstrate a verified implementation for regulatory compliance.

ASIC/FPGA Verification

ReqTracer bridges the gap between design spec and requirements to enhance both traditional (directed test) and advanced verification productivity and effectiveness.
