BRAUNSCHWEIG, GERMANY: Symtavision, the global leader in timing analysis solutions for planning, optimizing and verifying embedded real-time systems, will preview SymTA/S 3.6 at its annual customer News Conference to be held in Braunschweig on 10th and 11th September 2014.
SymTA/S 3.6 is the next major release of Symtavision’s award-winning tool suite for system-level timing design and timing verification. It features significant improvements in System Distribution Analysis performance, memory usage, FlexRay support and analysis of start-up behavior along with enhanced multicore Data Consistency Analysis, AUTOSAR 3.x/4.x support and trace importation.
System Distribution Analysis performance has been improved further. For several relevant customer use cases, SymTA/S 3.6 runs up to 20x faster and more. Memory usage for analysis runs has also been significantly reduced with 100+ runs now requiring no more memory than that required by a single run previously.
A FlexRay System Distribution Analysis preview now facilitates analysis of frame displacement in the dynamic segment, data loss and used/unused slots per cycle. The ability to determine System Distribution Analysis starting behavior has also been enhanced in SymTA/S 3.6 with explicit modeling of the starting points of elements to facilitate the simulation of start-up behavior and enable user-defined activation patterns.
Data Consistency Analysis of multicore systems has also been improved in SymTA/S 3.6 with the ability to model explicit call types for variable access and improved performance for systems with many variables. In addition, the AUTOSAR 3.x/4.x importer has been enhanced with support for ARXML files generated by Vector DaVinci and the extraction of more information from incomplete ARXML files.
Additionally, trace import in SymTA/S and TraceAnalyzer now works in conjunction with our new Lauterbach Trace32 interface and supports more detailed traces such as wait-release behaviour.
