—This paper describes the first version of a
reliability analysis tool that implements a new version of feared
scenarios generation algorithm. SaNTEA (Stopwatch Petri Net
based Tool for Embedded systems Analysis) allows the
representation of the suspension and resumption of task
execution and the extraction of feared scenarios that lead an
embedded system to a critical situation. In this version of
SaNTEA, discrete and continuous dynamics of the system are
coupled in the same formalism; feared scenarios can be
extracted directly from an object-oriented stopwatch Petri net
