DaedalusRT: is a system-level design (SLD) framework for designing hard-real-time embedded streaming systems. It accepts as an input a set of sequential applications written in a constrained form of the C programming language (called static affine nested loop programs (SANLPs)). After that, it performs the following steps:
Scheduling Analysis: In this step, the framework performs hard-real-time schedulability analysis on the CSDF representation to determine the minimum number of processors needed to schedule the applications and the mapping of tasks to processors
System Synthesis: In the last step, the framework synthesizes a multiprocessor system-on-chip (MPSoC) platform which runs the parallelized applications.
darts: is a toolbox for hard-real-time schedulability analysis of applications modeled as acyclic Cyclo-Static Dataflow (CSDF) graphs. It constitutes a part of the DaedalusRT framework. You can get the source code of this toolbox from here
microblaze-pmbus: is a system on FPGA which demonstrates a PMBus driver implementation for Xilinx Microblaze processors. The current driver has the following limitations: 1) "read-only" functionality (i.e., reading current, voltage, and power) from the PMBus controller without "write" functionality, and 2) Support for Xilinx ML605 boards only using TI UCD9240 controller chip.
