Test driven development of embedded systems

İspir, Mustafa
In this thesis, the Test Driven Development method (TDD) is studied for use in developing embedded software. The required framework is written for the development environment Rhapsody. Integration of TDD into a classical development cycle, without necessitating a transition to agile methodologies of software development and required unit test framework to apply TDD to an object oriented embedded software development project with a specific development environment and specific project conditions are done in this thesis. A software tool for unit testing is developed specifically for this purpose, both to support the proposed approach and to illustrate its application. The results show that RhapUnit supplies the required testing functionality for developing embedded software in Rhapsody with TDD. Also, development of RhapUnit is a successful example of the application of TDD.


A simulation tool for mc6811
Sarıkan (Tuncer), Nazlı; Güran, Hasan; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
The aim of this thesis study is to develop a simulator for an 8-bit microcontroller and the written document of this thesis study analyses the process of devoloping a software for simulating an 8 bit microcontroller, MC68HC11. In this simulator study a file processing including the parsing of the assembler code and the compilation of the parsed instructions is studied. Also all the instruction execution process containing the cycle and instruction execution and the interrupt routine execution is observed th...
Implementation of concurrent constraint transaction logic and its user interface
Altunyuva, Fethi; Karagöz, Pınar; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
This thesis implements a logical formalism framework called Concurrent Constraint Transaction Logic (abbr.,CCTR) which was defined for modeling and scheduling of workflows under resource allocation and cost constraints and develops an extensible and flexible graphical user interface for the framework. CCTR extends Concurrent Transaction Logic and integrates with Constraint Logic Programming to find the correct scheduling of tasks that involves resource and cost constraints. The developed system, which integ...
Implementation of an 8-bit microcontroller with system c
Kesen, Lokman; Aşkar, Murat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
In this thesis, an 8-bit microcontroller, 8051 core, is implemented using SystemC programming language. SystemC is a new generation co-design language which is capable of both programming software and describing hardware parts of a complete system. The benefit of this design environment appears while developing a System-on-Chip (SoC), that is a system consisting both custom hardware parts and embedded software parts. SystemC is not a completely new language, but based on C++ with some additional class libra...
A pattern classification approach boosted with genetic algorithms
Yalabık, İsmet; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay; Department of Computer Engineering (2007)
Ensemble learning is a multiple-classier machine learning approach which combines, produces collections and ensembles statistical classiers to build up more accurate classier than the individual classiers. Bagging, boosting and voting methods are the basic examples of ensemble learning. In this thesis, a novel boosting technique targeting to solve partial problems of AdaBoost, a well-known boosting algorithm, is proposed. The proposed systems nd an elegant way of boosting a bunch of classiers successively t...
Design and implementation of a software development process measurement system
Eralp, Özgür; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
This thesis study presents a software measurement program. The literature on software measurement is reviewed. Conditions for an effective implementation are investigated. A specific measurement system is designed and implemented in ASELSAN, Inc. This has involved organizational as well as technical work. A software tool has been developed to assist in aggregating measurements obtained from various CASE tools in use. Results of the implementation have started to be achieved. Lots of useful feedbacks have be...
