The multicore revolution has reached the deployment stage in embedded systems ranging from small ultramobile devices to large telecommunication servers. The transition from single to multicore processors, motivated by the need to increase performance while conserving power, has placed great responsibility on the shoulders of software engineers. In this new embedded multicore era, the toughest task is the development of code to support more sophisticated systems. This book provides embedded engineers with solid grounding in the skills required to develop software targeting multicore processors. Within the text, the author undertakes an in-depth exploration of performance analysis, and a close-up look at the tools of the trade. Both general multicore design principles and processor-specific optimization techniques are revealed. Detailed coverage of critical issues for multicore employment within embedded systems is provided, including the Threading Development Cycle, with discussions of analysis, design, development, debugging, and performance tuning of threaded applications. Software development techniques engendering optimal mobility and energy efficiency are highlighted through multiple case studies, which provide practical “how-to advice on implementing the latest multicore processors. Finally, future trends are discussed, including terascale, speculative multithreading, transactional memory, interconnects, and the software-specific implications of these looming architectural developments.

Embedded networking applications are changing and evolving quickly. Embedded multicore technology, for example, is appearing not only in high-end networking applications, but even in mid- and low-end networking applications. Achieving networking performance is only possible if software takes advantage of multiple cores. Multicore programming is not as simple as single-core programming. A new mindset is required, from architecting, designing to coding. Networking application development in multicore SoCs should not only concentrate on achieving scalable performance, but should also ease development and result in software that is maintainable for a long time. Some of the programming techniques listed in this chapter should help in achieving this goal.

This chapter introduces the automotive system, which is unlike any other, characterized by its rigorous planning, architecting, development, testing, validation and verification. The physical task of writing embedded software for automotive applications versus other application areas is not significantly different from other embedded systems, but the key differences are the quality standards which must be followed for any development and test project. To write automotive software the engineer needs to understand how and why the systems have evolved into the complex environment it is today. They must be aware of the differences and commonalties between the automotive submarkets. They must be familiar with the applicable quality standards and why such strict quality controls exist, along with how quality is tested and measured, all of which are described in this chapter with examples of the most common practices. This chapter introduces various processes to help software engineers write high-quality, fault-tolerant, interoperable code such as modeling, autocoding and advanced trace and debug assisted by the emergence of the latest AUTOSAR and ISO26262 standards, as well as more traditional standards such as AEC, OBD-II and MISRA.

In the electronics industry today consumer demand for devices with hyper-connectivity and mobility has resulted in the development of a complete system on a chip (SoC). Using the old ‘rule of thumb’ design methods of the past is no longer feasible for these new complex electronic systems. To develop highly successful systems that meet the requirements and quality expectations of customers, engineers now need to use a rigorous, model-based approach in their designs. This book provides the definitive guide to the techniques, methods and technologies for electronic systems engineers, embedded systems engineers, and hardware and software engineers to carry out model- based electronic system design, as well as for students of IC systems design. Based on the authors’ considerable industrial experience, the book shows how to implement the methods in the context of integrated circuit design flows. Complete guide to methods, techniques and technologies of model-based engineering design for developing robust electronic systems Written by world experts in model-based design who have considerable industrial experience Shows how to adopt the methods using numerous industrial examples in the context of integrated circuit design

State of the art techniques and best practices in the development of embedded software apply not only to high-integrity devices (such as those for safety-critical applications like aircraft flight controllers, car braking systems or medical devices), but also to lesser-integrity applications when the need to optimize the effectiveness of the available test time and budget demands that pragmatic decisions should be made. To complement this multitude of software test techniques there is a similar plethora of test tools available to automate them. These tools are commonplace in the development of safety-critical applications, but elsewhere not everyone has the budget to buy all, or indeed any, of them. Of course, the providers of these tools would advocate the purchase of each and every one of them, so how can a limited budget best be allocated? And where no budget exists, how can similar principles be applied to provide confidence that the finished item is of adequate quality? In addressing these issues not only are the concepts behind the techniques presented, but also some “case study” software code examples to drill a little deeper and illustrate how some of them are implemented in practice.

A recent survey stated that 52% of embedded projects are late by 4-5 months. This book can help get those projects in on-time with design patterns. The author carefully takes into account the special concerns found in designing and developing embedded applications specifically concurrency, communication, speed, and memory usage. Patterns are given in UML (Unified Modeling Language) with examples including ANSI C for direct and practical application to C code. A basic C knowledge is a prerequisite for the book while UML notation and terminology is included. General C programming books do not include discussion of the contraints found within embedded system design. The practical examples give the reader an understanding of the use of UML and OO (Object Oriented) designs in a resource-limited environment. Also included are two chapters on state machines. The beauty of this book is that it can help you today. . Design Patterns within these pages are immediately applicable to your project Addresses embedded system design concerns such as concurrency, communication, and memory usage Examples contain ANSI C for ease of use with C programming code

Embedded systems often have one or more real-time requirements. The complexity of modern embedded software systems requires a systematic approach for achieving these performance targets. An ad hoc process can lead to missed deadlines, poorly performing systems and cancelled projects. There is a maturity required to define, manage, and deliver on multiple real-time performance requirements. Software performance engineering (SPE) is a discipline within the broader systems engineering area that can improve the maturity of the performance engineering process. SPE is a systematic, quantitative approach to constructing software systems that meet performance objectives. SPE is a software-oriented approach; it focuses on architecture, design, and implementation choices. It focuses on the activities, techniques, and deliverables that are applied at every phase of the embedded software development life-cycle, especially responsiveness and scalability, to ensure software is being architected and implemented to meet the performance-related requirements of the system.
