Real Time Software Programming

Year 3, Semester 2

Titular: Professor Monica DRĂGOICEA

This lecture presents programming paradigms that foster design and implementation of real time application software.


Specific knowledge

  • general definitions and characteristics of real time systems
  • design and development methodologies
  • implementation examples
  • characteristics of real time operating systems and programming languages that support programming of real time software

Specific objectives

  • students should understand the general context of real time systems and real time embedded systems design and development;
  • students should understand design and development methodologies applied to real time software development;
  • students should understand concurrent programming concepts, in order to be able to apply IPC synchronization and communication
    mechanisms to meet requirements of concurrency and timeliness for real time software development;
  • students should understand how to use design patterns to design and develop real time software (C /C ++ programming and QNX real time operating system).
