Timing Analysis on Code-Level (TACLe)

TACLe is a four years lasting COST Action funded by the COST Office in Brussels.
Many embedded systems are safety-critical real-time systems that must process data within given deadlines. To validate real-time properties, timing analyses of program code are mandatory. Research on techniques for timing analysis of software touches many areas within computer science, e.g., computer architecture, compiler construction and formal verification.
This COST Action aims to cross-link the leading European researchers in these areas and thus to strengthen Europe's leading position in the field of timing analysis. TACLe's research activities include timing models for multicore systems, support of timing analysis by software development tools, early-stage timing analysis right in the beginning of the software development cycle, and the consideration of resources other than time like, e.g., energy dissipation.

Abstract: Modern embedded hard real-time systems often have to comply with several design constraints. On the one hand, the system's execution time has to be provably less than or equal to a given deadline. On the other hand, further constraints may be given with regard to maximum code size and energy consumption due to limited resources. We propose an idea for a compiler-based approach to automatically optimize embedded hard real-time systems with regard to multiple optimization criteria.
