—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)
—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)
—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)
—Previous works on real-time task graph models have ignored the crucial resource sharing problem. Due to the non-deterministic branching behavior, resource sharing in graph-based task models is significantly more difficult than in the simple periodic or sporadic task models. In this work we address this problem with several different scheduling strategies,(More)
