Worst-Case Timing Estimation and Architecture Exploration in Early Design Phases

&
Selecting the right computing hardware and configuration at the beginning of an industrial project is an important and highly risky task, which is usually done without much tool support, based on experience gathered from previous projects. We present TimingExplorer - a tool to assist in the exploration of alternative system configurations in early design phases. It is based on AbsInt�s aiT WCET Analyzer and provides a parameterizable core that represents a typical architecture of interest....
