Audsley, N.C. and Bletsas, K. (2004) Realistic Analysis of Limited Parallel Software / Hardware Implementations. In: Proceedings of the IEEE Real-Time and Embedded Technology and Applications Symposium. RTAS 04, 25-28 May 2004, Toronto, Canada. , pp. 388-395.
Proposed real-time system implementations combine reconfigurable hardware (for speed-up) with processor-memory architectures. Such hardware can execute many functions in parallel, leading to a limited parallel system where a single software process can execute on the processor at any time, in parallel with a number of functions implemented on the reconfigurable hardware. This approach is not amenable to conventional fixed priority timing analysis, as fundamental assumptions are compromised, namely that of a critical instant. This paper describes generalised fixed priority timing analysis for limited parallel systems, illustrated by an example system utilising field programmable gate arrays as the reconfigurable hardware resource.
