Symtavision has introduced TraceAnalyzer 1.2, which visualizes timing traces for automotive, aerospace, automation and transportation electronics development.
The Symtavision TraceAnalyzer 1.2 is claimed to deliver a ten-fold speed improvement in terms of visualizing and analyzing timing trace and log data for ECUs, controllers, processors, buses and networks, while also reducing memory requirements ten-fold.
Symtavision TraceAnalyzer visualizes the trace and analyzes the timing, so that key timing parameters can be identified and properly understood, and generates statistics on execution times, interrupt patterns, communication bursts and resource utilization. It provides visual clarity showing controller and bus schedules with events, blocking and pre-emptions and details the timing chains so that engineers can see the flow of signals and data through the system including data loss and multiple reads of the same data. Results are provided both graphically and in tabular form.
In addition, Symtavision TraceAnalyzer is able to automatically generate system timing models for SymTA/S, Symtavision’s tools suite for system-level timing design and timing verification. Symtavision recently announced SymTA/S 2.4 incorporating new features targeted at the automotive electronics, aerospace, automation and transportation markets including enhanced support for multi-core processors and AUTOSAR.
TraceAnalyzer 1.1 was launched in Nov. 2010. New features included:
• Support for Runnable analysis
• Export support into CTF (Common Timing Format) for seamless SymTA/S 2.x integration
• Support for Multi-Core analyses and Gantt visualization
• Support assigning a deadline to imported executables incl. check if deadline is violated
• Direct Excel export of tables via clipboard including header information
