Cache memories are crucial to obtain high performance on contemporary processors. However, they have been traditionally avoided in embedded real-time systems due to their lack of determinism. Unfortunately , most of the techniques to attain predictability on caches are complex to apply, precluding their use on real applications. This work reviews several… (More)
A new fluorescent sensor based on a dimethylxanthene skeleton has beensynthesized. Because of its oxyanion hole structure, this receptor includes a suitablecavity for the association of carboxylic acids. The receptor's fluorescence is quenchedupon addition of dinitrobenzoic acid.
Cache memories can improve computer performance, but its unpredictable behaviour makes difficult to use them in hard real-time systems. Classical analysis techniques are not sufficient to accomplish schedulability analysis, and new hardware resources or complex analysis algorithms are needed. This work presents a comprehensive method to obtain… (More)
