The role of modeling tools in future embedded systems
By Bernard Cole
If you think the trend is away from hands-on embedded C programming and toward the use of high level modeling tools for creating the design framework and auto-generating correct by construction code, be sure to attend the 2014 ESC/EELive! In San Jose, Ca.
Modeling of embedded designs
In Part 1 of a four part tutorial on modeling tools, Shelley Gretlein of National Instruments provides a brief introduction to the range of modeling methodologies and why you should consider their use in your embedded designs.
A crash course in UML state machines
In this article series. Miro Samek introduces you to the basics of UML state machines basic notation, clarifying semantics, and provides some code examples to the role of UML state machines have in practical, everyday programming rather than mathematical abstractions. Up first: The over simplification of the event-action paradigm.
Effective UML mapping for modeling state machines
Creating a round-trip 1-to-1 mapping between a Unified Modeling Language (UML) state chart diagram and its implementation, constructing a state machines by generating and managing executable code from the UML state chart diagram.
Using finite state machines to design software
A straightforward guide to adding structure to your software project using a finite state machine design pattern, requiring no exceptional knowledge other than basic programming and some common sense.
