Methodics Webinar: Achieving a Traceable Semiconductor Design and IP Methodology for ISO 26262 Compliance

This FREE webinar was recorded on:
07:00 PM - 08:00 PM CET

Sponsored By:


While separate solutions may exist for traceability of requirements, design data, and verification results, these solutions are often disconnected and therefore error prone when members of hardware and software design teams attempt to share and track data.

Providing full traceability for each element or IP in the overall project is often a time-consuming and tedious manual process that often breaks the links between requirements and the development teams. There needs to be an automatically traceable path from requirements through design to verification and tape-out in order to guarantee that all changes made in any area of the development path and in any area of the design hierarchy will be accurately reflected and accounted for in the other areas.

To meet this need, Methodics has developed the PercipientTM IP Lifecycle management (IPLM) platform to provide design teams with a fully traceable environment for tracking IP in an organization while simply performing their day-to-day design work, whether that work is analog, digital, software, embedded software, or final assembly. With Percipient, traceability is inherently built-in to the design process, not "added on".

By working within Percipient-generated design workspaces to perform their day-to-day work, designers can ensure the traceability of requirements and the collection of evidence that supports the documentation needed to show compliance to requirements. The Percipient platform can also automatically generate documentation from its own meta data and the integrations to other engineering systems to simplify the creation of safety manuals and the documentation of evidence needed for ISO 26262 compliance.

Please join us for a presentation on how to setup a methodology for a traceable semiconductor design process, and an overview and demo of how the Percipient platform can help design teams meet compliance to the ISO 26262 standard.
