How can real-time systems be analysed to ensure they satisfy their temporal constraints?
Which features are needed in programming languages to implement real-time systems?
This latest book from Burns and Wellings answers these and other key questions about real-time systems. It provides an in-depth analysis of the requirements for designing and implementing real-time, embedded, cyber-physical systems, and discusses how these requirements are supported by the Ada programming language. No other book on real-time (or concurrent) programming covers the same breadth of material.
Topics covered in this book include:
Ada is the programming language of choice for high integrity software systems and is used extensively in industries such as transportation and aerospace. Special features of the book include: Object-oriented programming, concurrency, and embedded and real-time systems are emphasized. Ada for Software Engineers explains the language concepts and the terminology of the standards document, the Ada Reference Manual (ARM). Extracts from the ARM are used throughtout and there are extensive cross references to the ARM. A comprehensive glossary and technical quizzes assist the reader in developing the ability to use the ARM as a practical reference. Comparisons with familiar languages like C and Java are given to facilitate the transition to Ada. The features of Ada 2005 are used routinely, but they are carefully identified, so that programmers using Ada 95 will also find the textbook useful. The companion website contains the full source code of nearly 100 case studies and 100 technical quizzes.
