Overview

Real-Time Systems: Design Principles for Distributed Embedded Applications focuses on hard real-time systems, which are computing systems that must meet their temporal specification in all anticipated load and fault scenarios. The book stresses the system aspects of distributed real-time applications, treating the issues of real-time, distribution and fault-tolerance from an integral point of view. A unique cross-fertilization of ideas and concepts between the academic and industrial worlds has led to the inclusion of many insightful examples from industry to explain the fundamental scientific concepts in a real-world setting. Thus, this book serves as an excellent text for advanced level courses on real-time systems.

Real-Time Systems: Design Principles for Distributed Embedded Applications also serves as an invaluable reference for professionals in industry. The book explains the relevance of the latest scientific insights to the solution of everyday problems in the design and implementation of distributed and embedded real-time systems. Thus, as a reference source the book presents state-of-the-art real-time technology in a coherent, concise and understandable manner. Because the cost-effectiveness of a particular method is of major concern in an industrial setting, design decisions are examined from an economic viewpoint. The recent appearance of cost-effective powerful system chips has tremendous influence on the architecture and economics of future distributed system solutions. The composability of an architecture, i.e., the capability to build dependable large systems out of pre-tested components with minimal integration effort, is one of thegreat challenges for designers of the next generation of real-time systems. The topic of composability is thus a recurring theme throughout the book.

Real-Time Systems: Design Principles for Distributed Embedded Applications is essential reading for anyone involved in the field of real-time systems.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A textbook for a senior or first-year graduate course for students of computer engineering or science, or electrical engineering, who have a background in programming, operating systems, and computer communications. Emphasizes hard real-time systems, which must meet their temporal specification in all anticipated load and fault scenarios. Also serves as a reference for professionals in the fields noted. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
From the Publisher
From the reviews of the second edition:

“The book includes new chapters on simplicity, energy awareness, and the Internet, and, more importantly, some of the original chapters have been substantially revised. The book was designed to be a textbook. Its audience includes graduate and senior-level undergraduate students in real-time systems courses, as well as practitioners. … Overall, this is a very good book.” (Janusz Zalewski, ACM Computing Reviews, January, 2012)

Meet the Author

Hermann Kopetz received his PhD in physics "sub auspiciis praesidentis" from the University of Vienna, Austria in 1968. After eight years in Industry he accepted in 1978 an appointment as a Professor for Computer Process Control at the Technical University of West-Berlin, moving to the Technical University of Vienna in 1992. Kopetz is a full member of the Austrian Academy of Science, Fellow of the IEEE, and is a member of the Information Society Advisory Group (ISTAG), advising the European Commission in Brussels in the domain of information technology since 2008. In June 2007 he received the honorary degree of Dr. honoris causa from the University Paul Sabatier in Toulouse, France. Kopetz is the chief architect of the time-triggered technology for dependable embedded Systems and a co-founder of the company TTTech. The time-triggered technology is deployed in leading automotive and aerospace applications and has been selected by NASA for the Orion Spacecraft.
