Model-driven development has become common practice in design of safety-critical real-time systems. High-level modeling constructs help to reduce the overall system complexity apparent to developers. This abstraction caters for fewer implementation errors in the resulting systems. In order to retain correctness of the model down to the software executed on(More)
A modeling language with formal semantics is able to capture a system's functionality unambiguously, without concerning implementation details. Such a formal language is well-suited for a design process that employs formal techniques and supports hardware/software synthesis. On the other hand, SystemC is a widely used system level design language with(More)
—Model-driven development (MDD) is an emerging paradigm and has become state-of-the-art for embedded systems software design. In the overall design process, several steps have to be taken in order to get from a high-level system design to the deployed binaries on the target platform: starting from model design, software partitioning and code generation(More)
In this paper we present an approach of generating SystemC executable models from software designs captured in a new component-based modeling language, COLA, which follows the paradigm of synchronous dataflow. COLA has rigorous semantics and specification mechanisms. Due to its well-founded semantics, it is possible to establish an integrated development(More)
Model-driven development has become the standard approach for the development of avionic and automotive embedded systems. When a semantically founded modeling language is employed, the implemented systems can be checked and further processed in an automated manner. To this end, the Component Language (COLA) was invented. It allows for the definition of all(More)
Hard real-time embedded distributed systems pose huge demands in their implementation which must contain as few faults as possible. Over the past years, model-driven development and automatic code generation have proven to effectively reduce design faults in those systems. Still, models are mainly used for parts of the systems' functionality and most(More)
For successfully raising offspring, long-term monogamous pair partners need to be behaviorally and hormonally coordinated. In the monogamous, biparental greylag geese (Anser anser) a dyadic pairbond-specific measure, 'within-pair testosterone compatibility' (TC) indicated how closely synchronized are seasonal androgen levels, which co-varied with(More)
—Model-driven development has become the state-of-the-art approach for designing embedded real-time systems. Due to their high level of abstraction, models are easier to understand and verify, thus leading to less faulty systems. But even when combined with automatic code generation, there is still the risk of unintended behavior. This may, for example,(More)
