Electronics - Embedded Systems II

These are some notes on embedded systems to gain a familiarity with the technology and the terminology used.

The worst-case execution time (WCET) is an upper bound on the execution of tasks. Computing such a bound is undecidable in the general case. Computing tight upper bounds on the execution time may still be difficult.

Composability may suffer from this.

Due to its focus, it is a rather compact OS.

. . . comfortable main stream operating systems.

. . . become quickly available in the embedded world as well.

. . . in order to guarantee meeting timing constraints.

A sequence of read and write operations is called a transaction.

Hence, changes caused by transactions are normally not considered to be final.

A platform is a family of architectures satisfying a set of constraints imposed to allow the reuse of hardware and software components.
