The main focus of the lecture is the design and implementation of embedded systems using formal methods and computer-aided design processes.


Embedded systems are computing systems that are tailored to an area of ​​application (e.g. mobile communication size, chip card systems, industrial controls, entertainment electronics, medical technology) and integrated into a technical context. The great interest in the systematic design of heterogeneous embedded systems is caused by the increasing diversity and complexity of applications for embedded systems, the need to reduce design and test costs, and advances in key technologies (microelectronics, formal methods).

  1. Properties of embedded systems
  2. Design methodology
  3. Embedded Systems Specification
  4. Scheduling procedure (scheduling)
  5. Architectural synthesis of heterogeneous multiprocessor systems
  6. Real-time operating systems
