Symtavision launches SymTA/S 3.1 and TraceAnalyzer 3.1

March 01, 2012 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Symtavision, vendor of software tools for timing design and timing verification of embedded real-time systems, has launched major new versions of its integrated system-level tools for planning, optimizing and verifying embedded real-time systems.

Targeted at automotive, aerospace, automation and other performance and safety-critical systems, SymTA/S 3.1 and TraceAnalyzer 3.1 include a range of new and enhanced features including new Scenario Management, a new 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, the Scenario Manager supports scenario-dependent scheduling parameters such as period and priority, as well as task execution time and CPU/bus speed. It is also fully user-customizable, allowing additional parameters to be covered. Support for the Field Bus Exchange (FIBEX) format has been updated, enabling the import of main system architecture and parameterization data in the latest FIBEX 3.1 file format. This enables the import of CAN and FlexRay configuration data including signals and function to ECU mappings. Improved Relative Deadline support enables deadline values to be automatically aligned whenever a period or task runtime changes.

Working closely with its customers, Symtavision has also implemented more than 50 functional improvements in SymTA/S 3.1 and TraceAnalyzer 3.1. These include a decrease of up to 50% in the memory requirements, enhanced Event Triggering analysis support, and new CAN-bus Load Variation Analysis enabling different load scenarios to be examined by varying message periods. Also included are FlexRay model check improvements, remote interfacing and scripting enhancements, as well as various charting, reporting, documentation and graphical user interface improvements.
