Investigation of the characteristics of real-time embedded systems and important concepts in the design of these systems. In-depth study of object-oriented and component-based analysis and design modeling of real-time embedded systems using the Unified Modeling Language (UML), SysML, and MARTE notations, including design of hardware/software boundary, real-time design patterns, real-time scheduling, and quality of service issues. Case studies of a range of real-time applications.
