The SAE AADL
is an extensible architecture analysis and design language for embedded and real-time systems.
The core language provides a precise semantic specification for modeling task and communication architectures and their mapping onto distributed execution platforms.
What AADL can do
What are the benefits
- Represent embedded systems as component-based system architecture
- Model component interactions as flows, service calls, and shared access
- Model task execution and communication with precise timing semantics
- Model execution platform and specify application binding
- Represent operational modes and fault tolerant configurations
- Support component evolution and large-scale development
- Accommodate analyses such as reliability &safety- criticality through extensions
- Prediction and validation of runtime characteristics such as availability, timeliness, security;
- Validated system architectures and implementations;
- Improved development process through single annotated architecture model;
- AADL as part of a model-based engineering enterprise solution;
- AADL models as deliverables and subcontractor management;
- interoperability & integration of commercial and in- house tools.
