SIDERA (SImulation model for DEpendable Real-time Architectures) is a simulation environment for time-triggered distributed real-time systems. It is based on the Time-Triggered Architecture TTA and allows the simulation of large-scale real-time systems. SIDERA provides simulation of various real-time protocol services like system startup, communication, clock synchronization, membership service and protocol error detection and handling. A failure simulation module allows testing the stability of the systems under investigation in the presence of node failures.

SIDERA provides

• simulation of single-cluster and multi-cluster time-triggered systems

• simulation of real-time protocol services (system startup, communication, clock synchronization, membership service, protocol error detection and handling)

• simulation of the FlexRay clock synchronization algorithm

• node failure simulation

on a single computer system with no need for special hardware. SIDERA is written in C++ and consists of a simulation runtime module, a graphical user interface for generation of the simulation input parameters and a graphical analysis tool for interpretation of the simulation results.

The current version of SIDERA runs on LINUX platforms (Kernel version 2.6) .
