Software Structure and WCET Predictability

8.pdf (0.4 MB)


Being able to compute worst-case execution time bounds for tasks of an embedded software system with hard real-time constraints is crucial to ensure the correct (timing) behavior of the overall system. Any means to increase the (static) time predictability of the embedded software are of high interest -- especially due to the ever-growing complexity of such software systems. In this paper we study existing coding proposals and guidelines, such as MISRA-C, and investigate whether they simplify static timing analysis. Furthermore, we investigate how additional knowledge, such as design-level information, can further aid in this process.
