An information architecture for risk assessment and management

IEEE Software, 1997

Cycle-accurate energy model and source-independent characterization methodology for embedded processors

This paper introduces a new methodology for high-level software energy estimation for embedded systems. The methodology produces cycle-accurate results independent of the energy characterization process. The executed instructions as well as the transitions on the wires are taken ...

  • Cycle-accurate energy model and source-independent characterization methodology for embedded processors

    The available techniques for embedded software energy estimation either provide unusable average-case results or require prohibitively complex hardware setups for cycle-accurate results. This paper introduces a new methodology for high-level software energy estimation for embedded systems. The methodology produces cycle-accurate results independent of the energy characterization process. The executed instructions as well as the transitions on the wires are taken into consideration for estimating the energy. This allows tradeoff between the accuracy and the complexity of the model. The methodology is generic and makes no assumptions about the measurement techniques or the architecture of the processor. The introduced methodology also allows successive improvements in the estimation accuracy with each step towards final silicon. The embedded ARM7TDMI RISC processor is modeled with this methodology and the errors are found to be less than 10%. For energy optimization, the model provides excellent relative accuracy too.

  • SOP & LXI for Automated Test Applications

This combination will be used to demonstrate putting a test system together. One test example will control a programmable power supply and DMM, sequence through various output voltages and display the output using a DMM device simulating an automated test stand.

  • Understanding the nature of software evolution

    Over the past several years, we have been developing methods of measuring the change characteristics of evolving software systems. Not all changes to software systems are equal. Some changes to these systems are very small and have low impact on the system as a whole. Other changes are substantial and have a very large impact of the fault proneness of the complete system. In this study we will identify the sources of variation in the set of software metrics used to measure the system. We will then study the change characteristics to the system over a large number of builds. We have begun a new investigation in these areas in collaboration with a flight software technology development effort at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and have progressed in resolving the limitations of the earlier work in two distinct steps. First, we have developed a standard for the enumeration of faults. This new standard permits software faults to be measured precisely and accurately. Second, we have developed a practical framework for automating the measurement of these faults. This new standard and fault measurement process was then applied to a software system's structural evolution during its development. Every change to the software system was measured and every fault was identified and tracked to a specific code module. The measurement process was implemented in a network appliance, minimizing the impact of measurement activities on development efforts and enabling the comparison of measurements across multiple development efforts. In this paper, we analyze the measurements of structural evolution and fault counts obtained from the JPL flight software technology development effort. Our results indicate that the measures of structural attributes of the evolving software system are suitable for forming predictors of the number of faults inserted into software modules during their development, and that some types of change are more likely to result in the insertion of faults than others. The new fault standard also insures that the model so developed has greater predictive validity.

  • Dynamic integration oriented data exchange methods for distributed instrument

    The dynamic integration of measure resources in the distributed environment is absorbing more and more research focus for its requirements in modern producing enterprises for low cost products. In this paper, the data exchange methods for distributed instrument is proposed, and the data exchange model is discussed which implemented the communication of the modules of the measurement instrument. And then the control mechanism of the data exchange is studied which manages the information of the measurement components and schedules the data process in the measurement cases. In this way, a group of measurement components and the distributed measurement units can be connected together dynamically. Based on the hardware concepts, the measurement component is proposed for instrument component design. The data exchange patterns among measurement components can be configured according to the communication address of software bus. The measurement data can propagate among the configured data logical flow ways asynchronously, and users can plug and unplug any components to the measurement platform. Finally, the proposed reconfigurable measurement example is present. The application case shows that the proposed way can accelerate the collaboration of production for different enterprise and improve the producing efficiency.
