A Real-Time Support Processor for Ada Tasking

  title={A Real-Time Support Processor for Ada Tasking},
  author={Joachim Roos},
Task synchronization in Ada causes excessive run-time overhead due to the complex semantics of the rendezvous. To demonstrate that the speed can be increased by two orders of magnitude by using special purpose hardware, a single chip VLSI support processor has been designed. By providing predictable and uniformly low overhead for the entire semantics of a rendezvous, the powerful real-time constructs of Ada can be used freely without performance degradation. The key to high performance is the… CONTINUE READING
