Timing design and timing verification for embedded real-time systems specialist Symtavision has developed SymTA/S 3.1 and TraceAnalyzer 3.1, which are new versions of its seamlessly integrated system-level tools for planning, optimizing, and verifying embedded real-time systems.
Targeting automotive, aerospace, automation, and other performance and safety-critical systems, SymTA/S 3.1 and TraceAnalyzer 3.1 feature new and enhanced features including Scenario Management, a FIBEX 3.1 import interface, and improved Relative Deadline support. In addition, more than 50 functional improvements have been implemented at the request of customers including Audi, BMW, Bosch, Daimler, Fiat, General Motors, Infineon, and Volkswagen.
In SymTA/S 3.1 and TraceAnalyzer 3.1, Scenario Manager supports scenario-dependent scheduling parameters such as period and priority, as well as task execution time and CPU/bus speed. It is user-customizable, allowing additional parameters to be covered.
Support for the Field Bus Exchange (FIBEX) format also has been updated, enabling the import of main system architecture and parameterization data in the latest FIBEX 3.1 file format. This allows the import of CAN and FlexRay configuration data including signals and function to electronic control unit (ECU) mappings. Improved Relative Deadline support enables deadline values to be automatically aligned whenever a period or task runtime changes.
