Symtavision has launched TraceAnalyzer 1.2 which boasts ten-fold speed improvement in visualising and analyzing timing trace and log data for ECUs, controllers, processors, buses and networks. Symtavision claims the TraceAnalyzer 1.2 also reduces memory requirements ten-fold.

The Symtavision TraceAnalyzer is a tool for visualising system timing in terms of the constituent ECUs, controllers, processors, buses and networks. With traces imported from standard trace probes, Symtavision TraceAnalyzer visualizes the trace and analyzes the timing, so that key timing parameters can be identified and properly understood. It generates statistics on execution times, interrupt patterns, communication bursts and resource utilization, amongst others. 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.

The TraceAnalyzer is also capable of automatically generating system timing models for SymTA/S, Symtavision's de-facto industry-standard tools suite for system-level timing design and timing verification. Symtavision recently announced SymTA/S 2.4 incorporating a wealth of new and improved features targeted at the automotive electronics, aerospace, automation and transportation markets including enhanced support for multicore processors and AUTOSAR.
