Timing Analysis and Timing Predictability

I will describe our approach to compute safe and precise upper bounds on execution times for real-time programs. The required effort and the precision of the results depends strongly on the characteristics of the execution platform. Increasing the precision and reducing the effort is easy if performance is of no concern. However, the ultimate goal is to design architectures that offer a good combination of performance and predictability. I will present an overview of existing results in this research area.
