Improving the WCET computation time by IPET using control flow graph partitioning

CléMent Ballabriga & Hugues Cassé
Implicit Path Enumeration Technique (IPET) is currently largely used to compute Worst Case Execution Time (WCET) by modeling control flow and architecture using integer linear programming (ILP). As precise architecture effects requires a lot of constraints, the super-linear complexity of the ILP solver makes computation times bigger and bigger. In this paper, we propose to split the control flow of the program into smaller parts where a local WCET can be computed faster - as...
