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.

Autonomous Driving

Autonomous driving is the most disruptive innovation ever in the automotive sector. Major technological challenges have yet to be overcome to enable fully autonomous driving. Mastering all critical real-time aspects of automotive electronics is definitely among these challenges.

Flow Diagrams and Timing

As we move to the era of the software-defined vehicle and selling feature upgrades updated over the air, the development approach used for static architectures is no longer fit for purpose. Adding timing requirements to flowcharts enables engineers to understand how their software will perform on domain controllers and automotive high-performance computing (HPC) platforms. Learn how this approach delivers the dynamism the automotive industry seeks from the software-defined vehicle.

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.
