Siemens Digital Industries Software Mentor Graphics Adds ReqTracer to Fast-Growing Mentor Safe ISO 26262 Qualification Program
Wilsonville, Ore., Feb. 21, 2017 – Mentor Graphics Corp. (NASDAQ: MENT) has further expanded its Mentor Safe functional safety assurance program with the addition of ReqTracer™, an industry-standard line of software tools for requirements management and tracking. Achieving the highest possible tool confidence level as a standalone tool, ReqTracer is now qualified for use in safety-critical ISO 26262 designs and verification flows at all criticality levels up to and including ASIL D.
Mentor Safe is one of the industry’s broadest and most comprehensive ISO 26262 qualification and certification programs, established to help automotive and industrial customers rapidly navigate the increasingly complex process of functional safety certification with confidence. In addition to ReqTracer, the Mentor Safe program includes Tessent® silicon test and yield analysis tools, the Nucleus® SafetyCert™ real time operating system, the Volcano® VSTAR AUTOSAR operating system and BSW stack, and a growing array of ISO 26262 certified documentation and qualification reports for Mentor tools supporting the design, verification and test of system-on-chip (SoC) applications and vehicle electronics system design.
“As demand continues to grow for sophisticated autonomous drive capabilities, automotive systems engineers must deliver unprecedented innovation while still adhering to the industry’s stringent functional safety requirements,” said Brian Derrick, vice president and general manager at Mentor Graphics. “The Mentor Safe program helps our customers meet these competing directives by providing the technology, documentation and support necessary for success in the era of increasingly complex vehicle architectures.”
The ReqTracer solution provides significant advantages for all projects, and particularly for automotive and other safety-critical applications. The tool automatically traces requirements from multiple sources throughout the design process. It simplifies report generation, provides real-time insights for managing requirements change impacts, and generates customized documentation that streamlines design review and audit cycles. This automated approach allows project teams to focus on implementation and verification, and more quickly achieve verification closure.
Mentor is a long-established automotive systems supplier, engaged with nearly every leading OEM and Tier 1 supplier, and providing design tools and embedded software in the areas of connectivity, electrification, autonomous drive and vehicle architecture. The company’s distinguished track record in supplying automotive-grade electrical and electronic systems spans nearly 30 years.
