4 in2305-II: L14 Embedded Systems? ES =computer system (HW+SW) embedded within another system largely determining its functionality printing system user I/F printer netw I/F

8 in2305-II: L18 Embedded Systems Boom provides functionality (intelligence) of almost everything annual growth 25-60% (Emb Linux > 60%) 100 x PC market accounts for 25-40% costs in automotive very large societal dependence very high performance demands

9 in2305-II: L19 Embedded Software Crisis functionality migrates from HW to SW existing cores combined with FPGA’s, rather than ASICs programming-centered design (incl. HDLs) TV, mobile, car, MLOC code, expon. growth! despite SW engineering: 1 – 10 bug / KLOC 100 G$ / yr on bugs (Mars Polar Lander, Mars Climate Orbiter, Ariane 5, Patriot, USS Yorktown, Therac-25,... )

10 in2305-II: L110 Embedded Programming more difficult than “classical” programming interaction with hardware real-time issues (timing) concurrency (multiple threads, scheduling, deadlock) need to understand underlying RTOS principles event-driven programming (interrupts) lots of (novice) errors (hence the crisis) so that’s why we have this course already in 2 nd year

11 in2305-II: L111 Example naïve automatic door task (thread): for (;;) { while (inp(sensor) != 1) ; // wait to open out(door,OPEN); while (inp(sensor) == 0) ; // wait to close sleep(1000); out(door,CLOSE); // close after timeout } what are the (many) issues? (discussed on the next slides)

12 in2305-II: L112 Specification: FSM (Moore) 0: door’, timer_enable’ 1: door, timer_enable’ 2: door, timer_enable s = sensor, t = timeout s’ 10 s 2 s s t.s’ red transition absent in example code -> door can slam into your face! tmret clk

13 in2305-II: L113 How to Program? VHDL: FSM in entity door_controller pros: separate hardware: no problems sharing a processor with other tasks (scheduling, priorities) fast and synchronous programming model: high frequency clocked process with simple polling for s and t cons: VHDL to cumbersome / prohibitive for large applications lots of legacy code written in, e.g., C

14 in2305-II: L114 A VHDL Solution process -- fsm begin wait until rising_edge(clk); case state is when S0 => if (s = ‘1’) then state <= S1; when S1 => if (s = ‘0’) then state <= S2; when S2 => if (s = ‘1’) then – red arc in FSM state <= S1; if (t = ‘1’ and s = ‘0’) then state <= S0; end case; door <= ‘1’ when (state != S0) else ‘0’; timer_enable <= ‘1’ when (state = S2) else ‘0’; end process;

15 in2305-II: L115 What if C? C: FSM in a task door_controller pros: simple (sequential) programming model cons: can’t be invoked periodically by a high-frequency clock (timer) because of polling overhead busy waiting (polling) is not an option (see above) -> concurrent (event) programming (e.g., using interrupts and semaphores) so the while loops in the example code are wrong only use a delay which is not based on busy wait ergo: interrupt programming, using an RTOS

16 in2305-II: L116 A C Solution void isr_sensor(void) // process sensor IRQ { OS_Post(semaphore_event_on_s); // signal s changed } void task_door_controller(void) { for (;;) { OS_Pend(semaphore_event_on_s); // wait for s = 1 out(door,OPEN); do { OS_Pend(semaphore_event_on_s); // wait for s = 0 OS_Delay(1000); } while (inp(sensor) != 0); // timeout out(door,CLOSE); }

17 in2305-II: L117 Issues efficient, no busy waiting any more ( OS_Pend, OS_Delay ) still, code is not correct: interrupts (entering/leaving persons within delay period are not properly handled, and are only accumulated in semaphore (wrong) cannot afford to just “sit” in a delay, need control flow flexibility of a “real” FSM, i.e., to jump, AND.. the ability to simultaneously wait for two events (s or t): void isr_sensor_and_timer(void) { // handle both IRQs OS_Post(s_or_t); // either s or t changed }

18 in2305-II: L118 Alternative C Solution void task_door_controller(void) { for (;;) { switch (state) { STDBY: OS_Pend(s_or_t); // wait for 0-1 out(door,OPEN); state = OPEN; OPEN: OS_Pend(s_or_t); // wait for 1-0 timer_enable(); state = TIMING; TIMING: OS_Pend(s_or_t); // wait for 0-1 or t if (inp(sensor) == 0) { // timeout out(door,CLOSE); timer_disable(); state = STDBY; } else state = OPEN; }}}

19 in2305-II: L119 Conclusion Embedded programming is not so easy Nor in C nor VHDL C: Concurrency needed (seq. prog. model): RTOS support Event programming needed: interrupts + RTOS support Learn the basics of interrupt programming and using an RTOS (in C) Learning is (lots of) programming!
