The Heptane Static Worst-Case Execution Time Estimation Tool

Abstract : Estimation of worst-case execution times (WCETs) is required to validate the temporal behavior of hard real time systems. Heptane is an open-source software program that estimates upper bounds of execution times on MIPS and ARM v7 architectures, offered to the WCET estimation community to experiment new WCET estimation techniques. The software architecture of Heptane was designed to be as modular and extensible as possible to facilitate the integration of new approaches. This paper is devoted to a description of Heptane, and includes information on the analyses it implements, how to use it and extend it.
