The T-CREST project is developing a time-predictable system that will simplify the safety argument with respect to maximum execution time while striving to increase the performance with multicore processors. T-CREST looks at time-predictable solutions for processors, the memory hierarchy, the on-chip interconnect, and the compiler. T-CREST is a 3 year project, funded by the EC. It has just passed the first year. In this talk I will give an overview of the T-CREST project, the individual sub-projects, and present some early results on the on-chip interconnect and the processor research.
Martin Schoeberl is associate professor at the Technical University of Denmark, at the Department of Informatics and Mathematical Modelling. He completed his PhD at the Vienna University of Technology in 2005 and received the Habilitation in 2010. Martin Schoeberl's research focus is on time-predictable computer architectures and on Java for hard real-time systems. During his PhD studies he developed the time-predictable Java processor JOP, which is now in use in academia and in industrial projects. His research on time-predictable computer architectures is currently embedded in the EC funded project T-CREST.
