Dependable Real-Time Systems

Master's level | 7.5 credits | Course code: DIT173

The course is not given as a stand-alone course this academic year, but can be included in the program/course package. For information contact the department.

About the Course

This course is intended to give a deeper understanding of the problems involved in designing dependable real-time systems based on multiprocessor architectures. Specifically, the course covers the following topics:

  • Background: motivation for; and definition of; real-time computing systems.
  • Characteristics of real-time systems: application constraints; design methods; task models; run-time mechanisms; architectures.
  • Evaluation of real-time systems: performance measures; evaluation methodologies.
  • Single and multiprocessor scheduling: problem definition; terminology; and algorithms.
  • Complexity theory and NP-completeness in the context of real-time scheduling.
  • Real-time communications: protocols and end-to-end delay guarantees.
  • Fault-tolerance techniques for real-time systems: models; algorithms and architectures.
