Abstract

In this paper, we present a service-performance network calculus model based on Time-Triggered Ethernet, a deterministic safety critical real-time network protocol, which is used in avionics systems. We firstly design and implement the TTE clock synchronization, redundancy fault-tolerant, multi-data communication, service-performance model, node model and network model successfully on the simulation platform. Then, we analyze the performance of TTE and compare simulation results with theoretical values from the time-triggered Ethernet network calculus. In this way, the performance and efficiency of TTE are analyzed and verified through two levels.
