Mixed critical system design and analysis
by Rolf Ernst from TU Braunschweig
Abstract: With increasing use of embedded systems in safety critical systems, architectures and design processes for safety have become a primary objective in systems design. Most such systems are also time critical leading to safety and time critical systems. Safety standards impose strong requirements on such systems challenging system performance and cost. Very often, however, only part of the functions is safety and time critical calling for a design approach that both meets the safety requirements and provides efficiency and flexibility for less critical functions. These conflicting requirements have given rise to the new research area of mixed critical system design with enormous practical relevance. This talk addresses key aspects of mixed critical system design.
