Title: Software Component Services for Windows CE
Subject: Computer Science
Level: Advanced

The use of software component models has become popular during the last decade, in particular in the development of desktop and server-side software. The purpose of this project is to investigate the use of such models in real-time systems. More specifically, the use of the Component Object Model (COM) and the .NET Compact Framework with the operating system Windows CE should be investigated.

The practical part of the project is to investigate commercial implementations of the models experimentally, by implementing non-trivial component-based applications with real-time characteristics. Measurements should be made to determine the component model’s effect on timing predictability and time/memory overhead. This will require implementing non-component-based reference applications to obtain comparison measurements.

One possible application to implement is a motor control loop, using a general PID-controller component and a component that simulates some equipment to be controlled, e.g. a DC motor.

A more theoretical part of the project is to investigate the possibilitis of extending COM with a set of run-time services for embedded real-time systems.
