2013 2013 International Conference on Hardware/Software Codesign and System Synthesis (CODES+ISSS)  
Verifying real-time requirements of applications is increasingly complex on modern Systems-on-Chips (SoCs). More applications are integrated into one system due to power, area and cost constraints.  ...  The main contributions are: 1) A run-time reconfigurable SDRAM controller architecture, which allows trade-offs between guaranteed bandwidth, response time and power. 2) A methodology for offering composable  ...  However, no bounds on performance are given, so applying it in a real-time system is not straightforward.
