This lecture discusses current topics and trends in embedded system research with special focus on design, analysis and verification of embedded systems and Systems-on-Chip. The lecture starts with an introduction into embedded systems architectures and electronic system level design. Then, the latest developments in analysis of non-functional properties like timing, power dissipation, and energy consumption are discussed. The lesson on verification addresses formal, semi-formal and dynamic techniques and give insights into run-time verification using different languages for formal property specification. The lecture finally covers advanced semiconductor technologies as well as reliability and functional safety aspects.
