WHAT IS THIS BOOKABOUT7 In recent times real-time computer systems have become increasingly complex and sophisticated. It has now become apparent that, to implement such schemes effectively, professional, rigorous software methods must be used. This includes analysis, design and implementation. Unfortunately few textbooks cover this area well. Frequently they are hardware oriented with limited coverage of software, or software texts which ignore the issues of real-time systems. This book aims to fill that gap by describing the total software design and is given development process for real-time systems. Further, special emphasis of microprocessor-based real-time embedded systems. to the needs WHAT ARE REAL-TIME COMPUTER SYSTEMS? Real-time systems are those which must produce correct responses within a definite time limit. Should computer responses exceed these time bounds then performance degradation and/or malfunction results. WHAT ARE REAL-TIME EMBEDDED COMPUTER SYSTEMS? Here the computer is merely one functional element within a real-time system; it is not a computing machine in its own right. WHO SHOULD READ THIS BOOK? Those involved, or who intend to get involved, in the design of software for real-time systems. It is written with both software and hardware engineers in mind, being suitable for students and professional engineers.

Nowadays embedded and real-time systems contain complex software. The complexity of embedded systems is increasing, and the amount and variety of software in the embedded products are growing. This creates a big challenge for embedded and real-time software development processes and there is a need to develop separate metrics and benchmarks. “Embedded and Real Time System Development: A Software Engineering Perspective: Concepts, Methods and Principles” presents practical as well as conceptual knowledge of the latest tools, techniques and methodologies of embedded software engineering and real-time systems. Each chapter includes an in-depth investigation regarding the actual or potential role of software engineering tools in the context of the embedded system and real-time system. The book presents state-of-the art and future perspectives with industry experts, researchers, and academicians sharing ideas and experiences including surrounding frontier technologies, breakthroughs, innovative solutions and applications. The book is organized into four parts “Embedded Software Development Process”, “Design Patterns and Development Methodology”, “Modelling Framework” and “Performance Analysis, Power Management and Deployment” with altogether 12 chapters. The book is aiming at (i) undergraduate students and postgraduate students conducting research in the areas of embedded software engineering and real-time systems; (ii) researchers at universities and other institutions working in these fields; and (iii) practitioners in the R&D departments of embedded system. It can be used as an advanced reference for a course taught at the postgraduate level in embedded software engineering and real-time systems.

Software Engineering for Real-time Systems, a three-volume book-set, aims to provide a firm foundation in the knowledge, skills and techniques needed to develop and produce real-time, and in particular, embedded systems. Their core purpose is to convince readers that these systems need to be engineered in a rigorous, professional and organized way. The purpose of Volume 2 is to introduce key practical issues met in the analysis, design and development of real-time software. Opening this are two chapters concerned with a core aspect of modern software development: diagramming. Chapter 1, a groundwork chapter, explains why diagrams and diagramming are important, what we achieve by using diagrams and the types used in the software development process. Chapter 2 extends this material showing diagrams that are in common use, are integral to mainstream design methods and are supported by computer-based tools. Next to be covered are code-related topics, including code development, code organization and packaging and the integration of program units. This includes fundamental program design and construction techniques, component technology, the programming needs of embedded systems, and how mainstream programming languages meet these requirements. The concluding chapter of shows the application of these aspects to practical software development. It looks at the overall specification-to-coding process using a variety of techniques: structured, data flow, object-oriented, model driven and model based.Note for lecturers who adopt this book as a required course textbook.Supporting material is available, covering both exercises (Word) and course slides (PowerPoint). This is provided free of charge.

This research investigated the important issues related to the analysis and design of real-time systems targeted to parallel architectures. In particular, the software specification models for real-time systems on parallel architectures were evaluated. A survey of current formal methods for uniprocessor real-time systems specifications was conducted to determine their extensibility in specifying real-time systems on parallel architectures. In this research, a specification model called Parallel REal Time specification Language (PRETsEL) was defined. It leverages off of existing models while adding the necessary syntax and semantics lacking in existing models in supporting specification of real-time systems for parallel architectures. Examples of utilizing the PRETSEL language are presented.
