Increasing design and verification complexity in SoCs is leading many teams to adopt industry standard best-practices for managing their projects.
One of the key components to successfully managing a distributed, complex and time-critical SoC project is Requirements Management. Having a full set of requirements, easily managed and updated for the project makes it much easier to bring transparency and tracking to a project.
Once requirements management is in place, it is also essential to be able to tie requirements back to the context of the IPs being used in the SoC. Since IP management and requirements management are two separate systems, being able to connect these two is critical. This paper describes how a requirements management system like Jama can be integrated into the IP management platform ProjectIC, allowing users to see IP requirements right in the context of their SoC.
