Contemporary embedded systems are based on complex heterogeneous multi-core platforms to cater to the increasing number of applications, some of which have (soft) real-time requirements. To reduce cost, resources are shared using diverse arbitration mechanisms, such as Time-Division Multiplexing (TDM), Static-Priority (SP) and Round-Robin (RR), depending on application and resource requirements. However, resource sharing results in interference between sharing applications making it difficult to estimate if the average latency is sufficient to satisfy their real-time requirements.
