Specification and quality assurance of timing constraints in real-time systems development

Chih-Cheng Lien, Chien-Chiao Yang
1992 Software, Practice & Experience  
A frame-like software requirements specification language (FSRSL) is extended to specify timing constraints and the related descriptions in the paper.  ...  Four parts of descriptions in a timing constraint: the path of events, timer, types of constraints and quantities of time, are explained.  ...  Whether the specified maximum quantity of a constraint is larger than, or equal to, the specified minimum quantity can be checked using simple arithmetic, if the quantities are in numerical form.  ...

Metropolis: an integrated electronic system design environment

F. Balarin, Y. Watanabe, H. Hsieh, L. Lavagno, C. Passerone, A. Sangiovanni-Vincentelli
2003 Computer  
Because the model has a precise semantics, it can support several synthesis and formal analysis tools in addition to simulation.  ...  This uncertainty often results in errors that are difficult to identify and debug. The move toward programmable platforms shifts the design implementation task toward embedded software design.  ...  Several processes model software tasks that execute on the CPU; three media model the CPU, bus, and memory; and four quantity managers measure the cost in system resources of processing individual events  ...
