A series of collaborations on timing design and verification with leading AUTOSAR modelling tool vendors has been announced by Symtavision.

The collaborations have resulted in the integration of Symtavision’s SymTA/S scheduling analysis tool suite for system-level timing design and timing verification with aquintos/Vector’s PREEvision, Continental Engineering Services’ CESSAR-CT, dSPACE’s SystemDesk and ETAS’ i-SOLAR. The standardisation afforded by AUTOSAR and the emergence of associated modelling tools has already contributed significantly to an enormous improvement in productivity from a software development perspective. SymTA/S ­enables engineers to capture all the timing properties along with the existing

AUTOSAR meta-model, today with the commonly used AUTOSAR Release 3.2 and in the future with the timing extensions in AUTOSAR 4.0.
