TA Tool Suite -
Accessing the Full Power of AUTOSAR ECUs
TA Tool Suite is a user-friendly collection of software products for the design, simulation and verification of embedded real-time systems. It covers the non-functional aspect “timing” across the complete development cycle as an unified solution. The tools enable a deep analysis of the timing behavior. Furthermore, TA Tool Suite simplifies the integration of software into an ECU. This increases the efficiency and reactivity of embedded real-time systems.
With TA Tool Suite, project managers, software architects, developers and integrators make full use of the ECU's computation resources.
WEBINAR | February 22
How To Handle Timing Requirements in AUTOSAR Classic Systems
This webinar introduces the approach of Vector’s TA Tool Suite for easily specifying and handling timing requirements from design to verification of AUTOSAR systems. The Vector experts present the new features for the definition of timing requirements according to the standardized format of AUTOSAR Timing Extensions. Furthermore, typical timing requirements during the timing analysis will be discussed.
- Systematic and traceable timing analysis through all development phases
Simulates different ECU system designs to early evaluate its timing and performance
Simulates runtimes of MICROSAR modules (RTE, OS, CAN/COM) to automatically consider timing and performance effects
Analyzes target traces to verify timing and performance constraints
Assists during runnable-to-task mapping with integration hints and timing and performance indicators
Increases system understanding by providing a graphical overview of data flows and interactions in the ECU software architecture
Direct interface to DaVinci projects to provide seamless model imports, exports, and updates
AUTOSAR compliant methodology based on TIMEX to guarantee a standardized workflow between all project contributors
Easy automation and integration with Continuous Integration environments and third-party tools
Highlights of Version 21.4
- Optimized definition, update, decomposition and validation of timing and integration constraints based on the AUTOSAR TIMEX standard
- Easy identification of the reason for a task or runnable activation by displaying trigger chains caused by AUTOSAR RTE communication
- Grouping of workflow nodes for improved readability and easier exchange of multiple nodes between different workflows
- Create bookmarks in gantt chart to mark interesting positions in a trace
- Raw trace viewer enables in-depth analysis of LTTng and perf traces
- Systematic configuration and representation of communication costs showing the impact of RTE communication on performance during runnable integration

Options of TA Tool Suite
Dedicated Software Products for Every Step of the Project Lifecycle
The modular TA Tool Suite provides a dedicated software product for each step of the software project lifecycle. This includes specification of timing requirements, analysis and improvement of the ECU runtime architecture design as well as verification of the target system behavior.
- Model-based simulation of ECU timing behavior to analyze the ECU system design even at early development stages
More details about his use case
- Verifies the schedule of the processes and interrupts
- Explores different design alternatives against timing and performance metrics and constraints
- Verification of the timing behavior of the application software and the OS on the real target
More details about this use case
- Analyzes timing and performance metrics and constraints based on imported traces recorded with third-party tools or with the help of the Vector hardware VX1000
- Flexible and extensive reporting capabilities
Discover the numerous application areas of the TA Tool Suite! Whether you need to analyze dependencies between tasks and runnables for an AUTOSAR Classic ECU or need a well-founded timing and performance assessment for AUTOSAR adaptive systems, the TA Tool Suite makes it easier than ever to master all runtime challenges. Of course, TA Tool Suite also supports non-AUTOSAR use cases.
Free Timing Bundles
For the AUTOSAR Basic Software MICROSAR, Vector and its partners provide so called Timing Bundles which help to easily integrate an optimal scheduling tracing solution.
The Timing Bundles implement efficiently OS and RTE trace instrumentation for each of measurement tooling to help analyze the runtime behavior in the option TA.Inspection of TA Tool Suite.
