When Function Meets Time
Methods and Tools for Developing Excellent Real-Time Systems
Excellence in Real-Time
INCHRON’s state-of-the-art methods and tools enable system architects, developers and testers to fully master system runtime performance aspects over the entire real-time systems development life cycle. A solid real-time design, paired with early proactive anticipation of real-time issues, almost always delivers far superior results than just trying to fix real-time issues discovered by chance in later phases of the development life cycle.
The INCHRON toolkit chronSUITE provides a comprehensive set of powerful tools that enable our customers to successfully implement this approach and use it across all development teams. For us, excellence in real-time means to identify sporadic runtime issues systematically and right from the beginning, thus making the development of complex real-time systems predictable in terms of product quality, development schedule and costs.
Find Timing Issues Before They Find You
Many automotive projects falter during software integration. Code that worked in isolation suddenly displays issues in aggregation. While these look like functional problems, they are often linked to issues of timing. By considering timing from the project’s kick-off, such challenges can be avoided.
ITEA4 Shines Light on INCHRON
ITEA4, part of the Eureka Cluster responsible for software innovation, took the time to learn about INCHRON. In their interview with Dr. Ralf Münzenberger and Dr. Karsten Albers, they looked at how the team develops new methodologies and tools to support software development in the automotive industry. Additionally, they explored the innovations projects such as PANORAMA deliver and examined how these activities bring many open minds together.
Research Project AD@chronVAL Approved
Together with the University of Ulm, the AD@chronVAL project will research new real-time analysis methods for future ADAS and autonomous driving system architectures. Building upon INCHRON’s continuous commitment to research in timing for embedded systems, it will significantly improve the investigation and validation of such automotive systems through mathematical analysis. The research results will be incorporated into the further development of chronVAL, part of the chronSUITE toolkit.
chronSUITE 3 – The Leading Toolkit for Timing Optimization
Discover what’s new in chronSUITE 3 that enables automotive software development teams to build reliable, robust real-time embedded systems. And learn more about the improvements made to simplify the simulation of design alternatives, visualize trace data, and verify your timing requirements.
Keeping Projects On-Track Using Virtual Verification
With many of us now forced to work from home, access to traditional hardware platforms is either limited or not possible. However, project development needs to continue and that means testing regimes need to be executed to keep programs on track. Our latest video demonstrates how the INCHRON Tool-Suite can be used during the software integration phase, even when no HIL is available.
