A Practical Application of the Ceiling Protocol in a Real-Time System

  • Abstract

    This paper briefly discusses some of the real-time design issues that arise when using the priority ceiling protocol for real-time systems. The paper shows a small real-time system design and shows how the code in the system could be structured to satisfy the requirements of the ceiling protocol.

    This paper was presented at the 2nd International Workshop on Real-Time Ada Issues in May 1988.
