# Embedded System Design

 Modulcode: Inf-EmSysDes Englische Bezeichnung: Embedded System Design Modulverantwortliche(r): Prof. Dr. Reinhard von Hanxleden Turnus: unregelmäßig (SS11, SS13, WS14/15) Präsenzzeiten: 2V 1Ü ECTS: 4 Workload: 120 Std. Dauer: ein Semester Modulkategorien: Lehrsprache: Deutsch

### Kurzfassung:

A cell phone that transmits voice signals correctly, but with too much delay, is unsatisfactory. An airbag controller, that ignites the correct airbags, but does so too late, is life threatening. These are two examples of embedded real-time applications, for which the reaction time is as critical as the reaction result. This lecture provides an introduction into different aspects of embedded real-time systems.

### Lernziele:

After successfully completing this module, the students will understand the fundamentals of embedded/real-time systems. Students will be able to select suitable platforms and programming languages for such systems, and they will be able to conduct design projects in this area. They will be aware of dependability concerns, and should be familiar with concurrency issues.

### Lehrinhalte:

• Model-based design
• Concurrency and scheduling
• Embedded hardware
• Distributed real-time systems
• Worst-case execution time analysis

### Voraussetzungen:

Programming experience, firm knowledge in C and Java

### Prüfungsleistung:

Written (in exceptions oral) exam

### Lehr- und Lernmethoden:

Lectures, weekly exercises.

### Verwendbarkeit:

This module can be used eg. for "M.Sc. Digital Communications", or for "B.Sc. Informatik". It can also be used for "M.Sc. Informatik", in "Masterbereich Vertiefende Informatik-Grundlagen" or in "Masterbereich Informatik der Systeme".
