Crosscutting concerns are the issues in software that cannot be modularized within a software module. In this thesis work, a detailed evaluation of the use of Aspect Oriented Programming for the implementation of crosscutting concerns in embedded real-time systems is presented. The pilot Audio Switch project implementations are first evaluated in terms of software quality attributes. Then a detailed analysis of the two implementations, according to embedded real-time performance metrics has been carried out. Evaluation results show the benefits of Aspect Oriented Programming in embedded real-time systems.

An evaluation of aspect oriented programming for embedded real-time systems
Kartal, Yusuf Bora; Schmidt, Şenan Ece (2007-12-01)
Crosscutting concerns are the issues in object- oriented programming (OOP) that cannot be modularized within a software module. In this paper, an experimental evaluation of the use of aspect-oriented programming (AOP) for the implementation of crosscutting concerns in embedded real-time systems is presented. The crosscutting functionality of the project under study is realized both by employing OOP and AOP techniques to make a comparison between the two programming paradigms. These two implementations are e...
Test driven development of embedded systems
İspir, Mustafa; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
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 ...
A compact cryptographic processor for IPSec applications
Kavun, Elif Bilge; Akyıldız, Ersan; Yalçın, Tolga; Department of Cryptography (2010)
A compact cryptographic processor with custom integrated cryptographic coprocessors is designed and implemented. The processor is mainly aimed for IPSec applications, which require intense processing power for cryptographic operations. In the present design, this processing power is achieved via the custom cryptographic coprocessors. These are an AES engine, a SHA-1 engine and a Montgomery modular multiplier, which are connected to the main processor core through a generic flexible interface. The processor ...
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...
Resource-aware load balancing system with artificial neural networks
Yıldız, Ali; Şener, Cevat; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
As the distributed systems becomes popular, efficient load balancing systems taking better decisions must be designed. The most important reasons that necessitate load balancing in a distributed system are the heterogeneous hosts having different com- puting powers, external loads and the tasks running on different hosts but communi- cating with each other. In this thesis, a load balancing approach, called RALBANN, developed using graph partitioning and artificial neural networks (ANNs) is de- scribed. The ...
