Arteris® IP Helps Automate System-on-Chip Semiconductor Design Traceability with Harmony Trace™️ Design Data Intelligence

Enterprise-level server-based application increases system quality and enables faster Functional Safety Certifications by creating and maintaining traceability between different systems

Campbell, California, UNITED STATES

CAMPBELL, Calif., Nov. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  Arteris IP (NASDAQ: AIP), a leading provider of system-on-chip (SoC) system IP consisting of network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect and IP deployment software that accelerate SoC creation, today announced the launch of the Arteris® Harmony Trace™️ Design Data Intelligence Solution to ease compliance with semiconductor industry functional safety and quality standards such as ISO 26262, IEC 61508, ISO 9001, and IATF 16949.

Highlights of this Announcement:

  • Harmony Trace increases system quality and accelerates functional safety assessments by identifying and fixing the traceability gaps between disparate systems.
  • Harmony Trace is implemented as an enterprise-level server-based application with a web-based user interface (UI).
  • Harmony Trace is unique because it gives engineers the freedom to use the “best tool for the job” and automates linking requirements and artifacts.

For design teams with functional safety requirements or who create complex SoCs or systems, Arteris® Harmony Trace™️ increases system quality and the ability to achieve functional safety certifications. By creating and maintaining traceability between disparate systems for requirements, specifications, EDA and hardware designs, software code, and documentation, engineers will know immediately when a change occurs and the effect of that change on other design artifacts and parts of the system.

Harmony Trace is implemented as an enterprise-level server-based application with a web-based UI that interfaces with EDA, documentation, existing requirements, software engineering and support systems. Unlike Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions that require engineers to use a single environment that is not best-in-class in any one aspect, Arteris Harmony Trace creates a system-of-systems that allows complete visibility of requirements traceability through the entire SoC design flow and product life cycle.

“Developing a complex SoC often involves a suite of disparate and disconnected tools, which makes it difficult to maintain a record that allows tracing design requirements and artifacts over the product’s lifetime,” said Mike Demler, senior analyst at The Linley Group. “But Arteris Harmony Trace mitigates these issues by connecting discrete silos such that users can track requirements, implementation, verification and documentation mismatches across existing systems. This means that engineers can continue to use best-in-class solutions and technologies like EDA tools, IBM DOORS, Jama, Jira, DITA, and IP-XACT while experiencing the benefits of automated traceability. Harmony Trace helps design teams meet the quality and change management requirements of functional safety standards such as ISO 26262 and IEC 61508.”

“The development of Arteris Harmony Trace was driven by our customers’ needs to establish an automated traceability flow and implement change management best practices between their existing requirements, specification, EDA, code repository and documentation tools,” said K. Charles Janac, president and CEO of Arteris IP. “Harmony Trace allows our customers to use their existing tools and automatically link data between them due to its unique semiconductor industry-specific semantic computing technology.”
