Summary form only given. Mechatronic systems request for high reliability, especially in the context of time where mostly hard real-time capabilities are mandatory. May be even stronger requirements regard the robustness against software failures and interdependences from erroneous tasks to others. We propose the concept of robust partitioning for reliable(More)
The realisation of Global Cellular Automaton (GCA) using a comparatively high number of communicating finite state machines (FSM) leads to high communication effort. Inside configurable architectures, fixed numbers of FSM and fixed bus widths result in a granularity that makes mapping of larger GCA to these architectures even more difficult. This approach(More)
A novel architecture for reconfigurable computing based on a coarse grain FPGA-like architecture is introduced. The basic blocks contain all arithmetical and logical capacities as well as some registers and will be programmable by sequential instruction streams produced by software compiler. Reconfiguration is related to hyperblocks of instructions. For the(More)
Real-time systems mainly consist of time or event-triggered tasks that must satisfy deadline-constraints and other limitations to the execution time. Scheduling of them is a common problem especially if no operating system can be used because of limited resources like code-size and CPU power. Previous approaches deal with multi-frame models to split tasks(More)
This approach modifies a RISC processor by integrating an additional Fetch Look-Aside Buffer (FLAB) for instructions. While the first fetch of any instruction results in normal execution, this instruction is combined in parallel with former instructions for later execution and saved inside the FLAB. The architecture works like a dynamic(More)
