Embedded systems, particularly real-time systems with temporal constraints, are increasingly deployed in every day life. Such systems that interact with the physical world are also referred to as cyber-physical systems (CPS). These systems commonly find use in critical infrastructure from transportation to health care. While security in CPS-based real-time(More)
Predictability of task execution is paramount for real-time systems so that upper bounds of execution times can be determined via static timing analysis. Static timing analysis on network-on-chip (NoC) processors may result in unsafe underestimations when the underlying communication paths are not considered. This stems from contention on the underlying(More)
The number of cores of contemporary processors is constantly increasing and thus continues to deliver ever higher peak performance (following Moore’s transistor law). Yet high core counts present a challenge to hardware and software alike. Following this trend, the network-on-chip (NoC) topology has changed from buses over rings and fully connected(More)
Control decisions of intelligent devices in critical infrastructure can have a significant impact on human life and the environment. Insuring that the appropriate data is available is crucial in making informed decisions. Such considerations are becoming increasingly important in today's cyber-physical systems that combine computational decision making on(More)
INTRODUCTION Subjects with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) who were taking tolvaptan experienced aminotransferase elevations more frequently than those on placebo in the TEMPO 3:4 (Tolvaptan Efficacy and Safety in Management of Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease and its Outcomes) clinical trial. METHODS An independent,(More)
