Modern avionic system development is undergoing a major transition, from federated systems to Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) where several applications with mixed criticality will reside on the same platform. Moreover, there is a departure from today's single core computing, and we need to address the problem of how to guarantee determinism (in time and space) for application tasks running on multiple cores and interacting through shared memory. This paper summarizes the main challenges and
more » ... riefly describes some active directions in research regarding temporal partitioning. It also outlines the forthcoming research that we will pursue for quantifying time bounds on memory access related interference, to ensure determinism and comply with certification requirements.
