Primarily written for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of Computer Science and Computer Application, this book begins with a discussion on the architecture and components of real time system, real time operating system and computing issues and then moves on to performability, real time system performance measure including its properties. Besides, the book explains various other concepts such as scheduling algorithms and task assignment. Finally, it deals with real time database transaction, soft and hard transactions, serializability and thrashing effect.

    Real Time Systems Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    Real time systems respond to the input immediately. They follow timing constraints. They have to give their outputs in time. Producing the output, after precise time degrade system performance, leads to catastrophic failure and sometimes output is useless for both systems and users. They have to the response in the order of milliseconds or in a microsecond.

    Characterizing Real Time Systems Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    Real time systems are everywhere. They appear both in small and large applications. They can start from video gasmes to control and monitoring system of a nuclear power plant. The behaviours of these systems are such that they have to respond to input immediately. Often these systems response times are in the order of milliseconds or in microseconds.

    Task Assignment and Scheduling Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    Computer systems are present everywhere. Examples of computer usage vary from playing computer games to diagnosing a shuttle in space. Real time systems respond to the input immediately. They have some specific time called timing constraints in which they have to give their outputs.

    Real Time Databases Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    Many real time applications have large amount of data, this data must be correctly processed, managed and stored for successful operation in real time system. Examples of real time database management systems are network management system, an industrial control system and an autopilot system. Real time database management system managed large quantity of data. These data should maintain and up to date regularly.

    Real Time Communication Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    Real Time Communications (RTC) deal with reality. It means that data used in real time applications will be real or live data. Real time communication purpose is to exchange the information between different users with minimum delay. Delay means latency and it must be less as possible for proper flow of data

    Real Time Operating System Price 2.99  |  2.99 Rewards Points

    A real time operating system is specially designed for real time applications. Real time applications are concerned with timing constraints. All applications must be complete in time. Therefore, the operating system of a real time system is designed in such a way that it fulfils this need.
