About this book

Global modelling and validation is required to master the design of systems made of heterogeneous components. These systems are now omnipresent in our life, and they may be found in several domains such as communications (ex. mobile terminals, optical switches), health (e.g. cardiac stimulators, cochlear implants), transportation (ex. automotive and aeronautical), etc. The main difficulties for their design are modelling and validation of the interactions between different components (hardware, software, analogue, RF, optical and micro-mechanical).

Global Specification and Validation of Embedded Systems offers a deep understanding of concepts and practices behind the composition of heterogeneous components. After the analysis of existing computation and execution models used for the specification and validation of different sub-systems, the book introduces a systematic approach to build an execution model for systems composed of heterogeneous components. Mixed continuous/discrete and hardware/software systems will be used to illustrate these concepts. The benefit of reading this book is to give a clear vision on the theory and practice of specification and validation of complex modern systems. The examples give to the designers solutions applicable in their daily practice.

About the authors

Ahmed Amine Jerraya is Research Director with CNRS and is currently managing research dealing with Multiprocessor System-on-Chips at TIMA Laboratory, France. He received a degree in engineering from the University of Tunis in 1980 and the D.E.A., "Docteur Ingénieur", and the "Docteur d'Etat" degrees from the University of Grenoble in 1981, 1983, and 1989 respectively, all in computer sciences. From April 1990 to March 1991, he was a Member of the Scientific Staff at Nortel in Canada, working on linking system design tools and hardware design environments. He served as General Chair for the Conference DATE in 2001 and published more than 200 papers in International Conferences and Journals. He received the Best Paper Award at the 1994 ED&TC for his work on Hardware/Software Co-simulation.

Gabriela Nicolescu is currently professor at Ecole Polytechnique Montreal teaching embed systems design and real-time systems. She received a degree in engineering and Ms.S. from Polytechnic University of Romania in 1998 and "Docteur Ingénieur" degree from the University of Grenoble, France in 2002. Her research work is in the field of specification and validation of heterogeneous systems and multi-processor system-on-chip design. She published more then 40 papers in International Conference and Journals
