Component technology in Resource Constrained Embedded Real-Time Systems


Research group:

Publication Type:



This paper presents a framework to incorporate real-time theory with component-based software engineering, in order to achieve predictable systems. The proposed technology is aimed at releasing the developers from analysis aspects, and having a synthesis tool mapping a feasible component based software architecture to a run-time environment. Two component technologies form the base of our proposal, the predictable infrastructure PECT and the real-time component technology AutoComp. By combining properties from both, we achieve a framework suited for resource constrained real-time systems
