Abstract:The Model-Driven Architecture initiative (MDA) of the Object Management Group
(OMG) proposes a development paradigm that can be used to deal with the increasing
complexity of real-time embedded systems. MDA is based on developing both platform
independent and specific models from which executable code can be generated in an
automatic or semi-automatic way. In most cases, engineers use Domain-Specific Models to
describe the system and the challenge is to integrate these specific models into a general
MDA methodology. Sometimes, the MDA infrastructure includes applications that can
evaluate the real-time system performance, an essential aspect of the time-critical embedded
system design.
This paper presents a real-time embedded system development methodology based on
MDA and a Domain-Specific Model oriented to time-critical system modelling. The toolset
supports model transformations and performance analysis. The performance analysis is
based on the PERFidiX technology, a SystemC-based framework for system evaluation.
The main contributions of this paper are the exploration of techniques to integrate
Domain-Specific Models into an MDA-based methodology and the relations of these
techniques with the SystemC code generation and performance analysis processes.
