A Framework for Static Analysis of VHDL Code

Marc Schlickling & Markus Pister
Software in real time systems underlies strict timing constraints. These are among others hard deadlines regarding the worst-case execution time (WCET) of the application. Thus, the computation of a safe and precise WCET is a key issue1 for validating the behavior of safety-critical systems, e.g. the flight control system in avionics or the airbag control software in the automotive industry. Saarland University and AbsInt Angewandte Informatik GmbH have developed a successful approach for computing the...
