—Recently, there have been several promising techniques developed for schedulability analysis and response time analysis for multiprocessor systems based on over-approximation. This paper contains two contributions. First, to improve the analysis precision, we apply Baruah's window analysis framework [6] to response time analysis for sporadic tasks on(More)
Models for real-time systems have to balance the inherently contradicting goals of expressiveness and analysis efficiency. Current task models with tractable feasibility tests have limited expressiveness, restricting their ability to model many systems accurately. In particular, they are all recurrent, preventing the modeling of structures like mode(More)
Liu and Layland discovered the famous utilization bound for fixed-priority scheduling on single processor systems in the 1970's. Since then, it has been a long standing open problem to find fixed-priority scheduling algorithms with the same bound for multiprocessor systems. In this paper, we present a partitioning-based fixed-priority multiprocessor(More)
—In formal analysis of real-time systems, a major concern is the analysis efficiency. As the expressiveness of models grows, so grows the complexity of their analysis. A recently proposed model, the digraph real-time task model (DRT), offers high expressiveness well beyond traditional periodic task models. Still, the associated feasibility problem on(More)
Future embedded real-time systems will be deployed on multi-core processors to meet the dramatically increasing high-performance and low-power requirements. This trend appeals to generalize established results on uniprocessor scheduling, particularly the various utilization bounds for schedulability test used in system design, to the multiprocessor setting.(More)
—An increasing trend in embedded system design is to integrate components with different levels of criticality into a shared hardware platform for better cost and power efficiency. Such mixed-criticality systems are subject to certifications at different levels of rigorousness, for validating the correctness of different subsystems on various confidence(More)
The Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC) was developed as a checksum algorithm for the detection of data corruption in the process of data transmission or storage. However, in some scenarios there's a CRC given which a set of data is expected to have, so the data itself has to be modied (at the end or at some chosen position) in a way that it computes to the given(More)
