Braunschweig, Germany – Sep 9, 2014. 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.
“With the forthcoming release of SymTA/S 3.6, we are once again extending the boundaries of system-level timing design and timing verification,” said Dr. Marek Jersak, CEO of Symtavision. “With the preview version that we are demonstrating at our annual News Conference, we are pleased to be able to give our customers an early insight into the numerous significant improvements and enhancements we are making to SymTA/S with the release of version 3.6 and future releases.”
