Software management

digite 2.5, a software lifecycle management platform and single web-based application, offers modules such as Requirements Management, Project Planning and Tracking, Issues and Defects Management, Document Management, Project Change Management, and Software Configuration Management. According to the company, the program reduces project launch time, increases project visibility, and allows for business process auditability. Tufan Inc., www.tufan.com. Enter 603

PCM module

The Product Change Management (PCM) module is designed as a solution for creating and automating engineering change orders (ECOs), and for enhancing the accuracy and speed of change communication. The module offers real-time access to change, organize, and store information on-line. BOM.com, www.BOM.com. Enter 604

CAID data interface

The data interface for StudioTools CAID (computer-aided industrial engineering) software, available free with StudioTools Re-lease 10, allows PTC(R) Granite(TM) One-built applications, like Pro/ENGINEER, to read native Alias(R) data. According to the company, Pro/ENGINEER part files need not be translated to a neutral file format before importing them to Studio-Tools. Alias/Wavefront, www.aw.sgi.com. Enter 605

Design verification system

The Palladium design verification system reportedly supports configurations of two million to 128 million ASIC gates, which in turn support up to 64 Gbytes of memory and more than 8,000 physical I/Os for target system interfacing. A high-speed channel between the workstation and Palladium is intended to reduce inter-process latency and improve run-time performance by orders of magnitude over software-based simulation tools.
