PRIDE – an Environment for Component-based Development of Distributed Real-time Embedded Systems

Conference/Workshop Paper


9th Working IEEE/IFIP Conference on Software Architecture




Settling down the software architecture for embedded system is a complex and time consuming task. Specific concerns that are generally issued from implementation details must be captured in the software architecture and assessed to ensure system correctness. The matter is further complicated by the inherent complexity and heterogeneity of the targeted systems, platforms and concerns. In addition, tools capable of conjointly catering for the complete design-verificationdeployment cycle, extra-functional properties and reuse are currently lacking. To address this, we have developed Pride, an integrated development environment for component-based development of embedded systems. Pride is based on an architecture relying on components with well-defined semantics that serve as the central development entity, and as means to support and aggregate various analysis and verification techniques throughout the development — from early specification to synthesis and deployment. Pride also provides generic support for integrating extra-functional properties into architectural definitions.
