Automated Safety Critical Software Development for Distributed Control Systems: A COTS Approach 2001-01-0675
This paper presents a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) approach to the automated generation of safety critical software for a distributed control system. The tool suite presented supports Honeywell's next generation Modular Aerospace Controls (MAC) architecture that facilitates fault tolerant distributed engine control utilizing intelligent components connected with TTP/C.
This paper describes the integration of tool chains from two commercial vendors, the BEACON™ tool chain from Applied Dynamics International (ADI) and the TTP support tool chain from Time Triggered Technology (TTTech). The integration of these tool chains yields a powerful end-to-end systems-to-software environment that enables a fully automated approach to the development of distributed embedded software and its verification data.
