The market is steadily growing for embedded systems which are IT systems that realize a set of specific features for the end user in a given environment. Some examples are control systems in cars, airplanes or houses, information and communication devices such as digital TV and mobile phones, and autonomous systems such as service or edutainment robots. Due to steady improvements of production processes, each of those applications is now realized as a system-on-chip. Furthermore, on the hardware side, low-cost broadband communication media are the technological components essential in the realization of distributed systems. In order to ease the use of the variety of communication systems, middleware solutions for embedded systems are emerging. The verification of system correctness during the entire design cycle and the guarantee of non-functional requirements such as real-time support or dependability requirements play a major role for such distributed solutions and hence, are the focus of this book.
This book documents recent approaches and results presented at the Distributed and Parallel Embedded Systems (DIPES 2002) stream of the 17th World Computer Congress, which was sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) and held in Montréal, Québec, Canada in August 2002. This TC 10 Stream was organized by the IFIP WG 10.5 Special Interest Group on Embedded Systems (SIG-ES) in co-operation with WG 10.3 and WG 10.4.
Design and Analysis of Distributed Embedded Systems is organized similar to the conference. Chapters 1 and 2 deal with specification methods and their analysis while Chapter 6 concentrates on timing and performance analysis. Chapter 3 describes approaches to system verification at different levels of abstraction. Chapter 4 deals with fault tolerance and detection. Middleware and software reuse aspects are treated in Chapter 5. Chapters 7 and 8 concentrate on the distribution related topics such as partitioning, scheduling and communication. The book closes with a chapter on design methods and frameworks.

Page ii - IFIP's aim is two-fold: to support information processing within its member countries and to encourage technology transfer to developing nations. As its mission statement clearly states, IFIP's mission is to be the leading, truly international, apolitical organization which encourages and assists in the development, exploitation and application of information technology for the benefit of all people. IFIP is a non-profitmaking organization, run almost solely by 2500 volunteers. It operates through...
Page ii - IFIP's events range from an international congress to local seminars, but the most important are: • the IFIP World Computer Congress, held every second year; • open conferences; • working conferences. The flagship event is the IFIP World Computer Congress, at which both invited and contributed papers are presented. Contributed papers are rigorously refereed and the rejection rate is high. As with the Congress, participation in the open conferences is open to all and papers may be invited or...
Page ii - The International Federation for Information Processing IFIP was founded in 1960 under the auspices of UNESCO, following the First World Computer Congress held in Paris the previous year. An umbrella organization for societies working in information processing...
