This book provides comprehensive coverage of verification and debugging techniques for embedded software, which is frequently used in safety critical applications (e.g., automotive), where failures are unacceptable. Since the verification of complex systems needs to encompass the verification of both hardware and embedded software modules, this book focuses on verification and debugging approaches for embedded software with hardware dependencies. Coverage includes the entire flow of design, verification and debugging of embedded software and all key approaches to debugging, dynamic, static, and hybrid verification. This book discusses the current, industrial embedded software verification flow, as well as emerging trends with focus on formal and hybrid verification and debugging approaches.

Modern embedded systems require high performance, low cost and low power consumption. Such systems typically consist of a heterogeneous collection of processors, specialized memory subsystems, and partially programmable or fixed-function components. This heterogeneity, coupled with issues such as hardware/software partitioning, mapping, scheduling, etc., leads to a large number of design possibilities, making performance debugging and validation of such systems a difficult problem. Embedded systems are used to control safety critical applications such as flight control, automotive electronics and healthcare monitoring. Clearly, developing reliable software/systems for such applications is of utmost importance. This book describes a host of debugging and verification methods which can help to achieve this goal. Covers the major abstraction levels of embedded systems design, starting from software analysis and micro-architectural modeling, to modeling of resource sharing and communication at the system level Integrates formal techniques of validation for hardware/software with debugging and validation of embedded system design flows Includes practical case studies to answer the questions: does a design meet its requirements, if not, then which parts of the system are responsible for the violation, and once they are identified, then how should the design be suitably modified?

For some years ago the main statement among verification engineers was "Bugs in hardware cost money." Nowadays, the embedded software is playing an important role in the embedded systems industry and the statement can be updated to "Bugs in hardware and in software cost a lot of money." Embedded software is very powerful in embedded systems in order to implement important functionalities and functional innovations. The developing costs of embedded software are becoming huge and its amount in safety critical systems is increasing. Therefore, the verification of complex systems needs to consider the verification of both hardware and embedded software modules. The most commonly used approaches to verify embedded software are based on co- simulation or on co-debugging, which consume long verification time and additionally have coverage limitations. Formal verification assures complete coverage, but is limited to the size of the module that can be verified. This dissertation extends the conventional verification limitations with methodologies that are based on temporal properties and formal verification.

Hardware/software co-verification is how to make sure that embedded system software works correctly with the hardware, and that the hardware has been properly designed to run the software successfully -before large sums are spent on prototypes or manufacturing. This is the first book to apply this verification technique to the rapidly growing field of embedded systems-on-a-chip(SoC). As traditional embedded system design evolves into single-chip design, embedded engineers must be armed with the necessary information to make educated decisions about which tools and methodology to deploy. SoC verification requires a mix of expertise from the disciplines of microprocessor and computer architecture, logic design and simulation, and C and Assembly language embedded software. Until now, the relevant information on how it all fits together has not been available. Andrews, a recognized expert, provides in-depth information about how co-verification really works, how to be successful using it, and pitfalls to avoid. He illustrates these concepts using concrete examples with the ARM core - a technology that has the dominant market share in embedded system product design. The companion CD-ROM contains all source code used in the design examples, a searchable e-book version, and useful design tools. * The only book on verification for systems-on-a-chip (SoC) on the market * Will save engineers and their companies time and money by showing them how to speed up the testing process, while still avoiding costly mistakes * Design examples use the ARM core, the dominant technology in SoC, and all the source code is included on the accompanying CD-Rom, so engineers can easily use it in their own designs

This chapter introduces the automotive system, which is unlike any other, characterized by its rigorous planning, architecting, development, testing, validation and verification. The physical task of writing embedded software for automotive applications versus other application areas is not significantly different from other embedded systems, but the key differences are the quality standards which must be followed for any development and test project. To write automotive software the engineer needs to understand how and why the systems have evolved into the complex environment it is today. They must be aware of the differences and commonalties between the automotive submarkets. They must be familiar with the applicable quality standards and why such strict quality controls exist, along with how quality is tested and measured, all of which are described in this chapter with examples of the most common practices. This chapter introduces various processes to help software engineers write high-quality, fault-tolerant, interoperable code such as modeling, autocoding and advanced trace and debug assisted by the emergence of the latest AUTOSAR and ISO26262 standards, as well as more traditional standards such as AEC, OBD-II and MISRA.
