The use of multicore processors is widespread in the automotive industry, with vehicles utilising increasingly complex software to perform safety critical functions to the ISO 26262 standard.
Identifying and accounting for the way these processors behave is both safety and business critical for automotive companies and suppliers. To develop safe multicore systems demonstrating freedom from interference is a challenging, but fundamental, objective.
This webinar tackles the challenge of multicore analysis head-on, with experts in the field tackling the key issues that are affecting the automotive industry today:
1. The automotive use case for multicore timing analysis
2. How to overcome the challenges of demonstrating freedom from interference
3. A practical solution for multicore timing analysis including worst case execution time (WCET)
Dr. Guillem Bernat is the CEO of Rapita Systems. He received his PhD in Computer Science from the Universitat de les Illes Balears in Spain in 1998 and then took a lecturing position at the Real-Time Systems Group at the University of York in the UK.
In 2004, he founded Rapita Systems to commercialize technology for measurement based worst-case execution time analysis technology. Rapita Systems has since grown to provide an industry-leading suite of software verification tools for critical systems including timing analysis, WCET analysis and structural code coverage to satisfy DO-178B/C and ISO 26262 objectives.
Dr. Bernat has published more than 70 papers in international conferences and journals, has lectured extensively in real-time systems and is a frequent speaker at international conferences.
