Tracing & verification system enables audit trail workflow

Tracing & verification system enables audit trail workflow
LDRA has secured a patent for TBmanager, its software life cycle traceability and verification system. TBmanager enables developers to bidirectionally link objectives, functional requirements, design, code and test artifacts to the people responsible. By helping define, enforce and demonstrate a comprehensive verification workflow, TBmanager provides the audit trail needed to achieve compliance to safety-critical standards.

Voice control software consumes less than 1μW of power

Synopsys and Sensory have announced the availability of an optimised port of Sensory's TrulyHandsfree voice control software for the Synopsys DesignWare ARC EM DSP processor family. In typical 28nm process technologies, the ARC EM5D processor consumes less than 1μW of power executing TrulyHandsfree low-power sound detection software, and less than 40μW operating in speech recognition mode. The combination of Sensory's highly optimised voice control technology running on power-efficient and DSP-enhanced ARC EM processor cores enables designers to rapidly integrate a complete, ultra-low energy hardware-software solution for voice/speech processing into their ‘always-on’ devices.
