Our multicore timing analysis solution comprises three components: a process, tool automation, and services.
Our multicore timing analysis process is a V-model process that we developed in line with DO-178 and CAST-32A. It follows a requirements-based testing approach that focuses on identifying and quantifying interference channels on multicore platforms.
The tools we have developed let us apply tests to multicore hardware (RapiTest) and collect timing data (RapiTime) and other metrics such as scheduling metrics (RapiTask) from them. We use RapiDaemons (developed by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center) to create a configurable degree of traffic on shared hardware resources during tests, so we can analyze the impact of this on the application’s timing behavior.
Our multicore timing analysis services include tool integration, porting RapiDaemons, performing timing analysis, identifying interference channels, and others depending on customer needs.
