Aldec Streamlines Management of DO-254 Validation and Verification with Spec-TRACER™

Date: Feb 2, 2016
Type: Release

Henderson, NV – February 2, 2016 – Aldec, Inc., today announces the latest release of its requirements lifecycle management solution for FPGAs/SoCs, Spec-TRACER™ 2015.12. This release provides users the necessary features and capabilities for systematically managing Validation and Verification (V & V) data and artifacts of large and complex FPGA/SoC DO-254 projects.


“Organizations developing FPGAs/SoCs for DO-254 compliance have to produce an extensive amount of V & V data and artifacts,” said Louie De Luna, DO-254 Program Manager. “Data creation and management of this magnitude can get chaotic without a systematic approach and can result in significant project delays.”


The latest Spec-TRACER release delivers new advanced features, reference projects, designs, video tutorials (to enable users to easily implement and enforce requirements management), traceability, tests management, and project management for managing V & V data and artifacts.
