Esterel Reports Availability of Scade System

Apr 06, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Esterel Technologies, a worldwide provider of model-based development solutions for critical systems and software, announced in an April 3 release the immediate availability of Scade System.

Scade System is a systems design and modeling tool suite that has been developed specifically for use on critical systems with high dependability requirements, providing a full support of industrial systems engineering processes, such as ARP 4754, ISO 26262 and EN 50126.

Scade System Designer, the first module available within the Scade System product line, is a system architecture design modeling tool that allows system engineers to model the design of system components and structure using SysML block diagrams.

Once a model is in development, Scade System Designer allows developers to export specific structural components from any system model and pass these components to subsystem development teams, allowing for IP protection of the system model. Scade System Designer also allows for comparison of differences among system model versions.

Scade System Designer supports systems engineering development processes from functional and architectural decomposition to allocation of functions to components through drag and drop in allocation tables. Scade System Designer is scalable to very large system thanks tabular views and multi-diagrams capabilities allowing as many as wished partial graphical views on the same design.

Scade System Designer is an open solution based on standard SysML notation and Eclipse, and is based on the open source Papyrus MDT technology. Model exchange between Scade System Designer and other tools is possible through XMI files and model APIs allow designers to create scripts, as well as develop custom verifications and data import or export capabilities.

Scade System integrates with Esterel Technologies Scade Suite, Scade Display and Scade LifeCycle, the company's tools.

"With Scade System, system designers and software developers are now empowered with an integrated systems and software environment to fully support Model-Based Systems Engineering. Scade System is much more than a drawing or database tool. By allowing for interaction and coordination between systems and software teams, organizations can streamline their system and software development processes resulting in quicker and more consistent application development strategies." says Eric Bantegnie, President and CEO of Esterel Technologies.

Join Esterel Technologies for a live webinar and demonstration of Scade System on Wednesday, April 11, at 11 am EDT. The webinar details how engineers can apply SCADE System in the system and software engineering processes, and how the work within these areas can be synchronized. To register for this complimentary webinar, please visit Esterel Technologies is a privately-held company with European headquarters in Elancourt, France, U.S. headquarters in Boston Mass., with direct sales offices in Germany, the United Kingdom, Russia and China. Esterel is supported by channel and service partners worldwide.
