Network Timing

SymTA/S and TraceAnalyzer for Networks support these key use-cases:

  • Select bus-protocols and gateways, optimize bus speeds
  • Allocate ECUs to buses
  • Configure communication protocols
  • Map signals to messages
  • Schedule messages
  • Optimize the configuration of gateways (routing strategy, buffer sizes)
  • Calculate bus loads
  • Calculate message transmission times and verify deadlines and other timing constraints
  • Calculate end-to-end signal delay (across gateways) and verify deadlines and other timing constraints
  • Highlight performance bottlenecks
  • Calculate available reserves (slack)
  • Optimize the overall Network schedule
  • Identify the most promising configuration candidates
  • Reject inferior concepts

SymTA/S and TraceAnalyzer for Networks seamlessly integrate with SymTA/S and TraceAnalyzer for ECUs to support system-level timing analysis and optimization (e.g. for distributed control).
