Our research group has participated in the porting of the Bound-T WCET analysis tool to analyze code that runs on the Renesas H8/3297 microprocessor. The H8/3297 is part of Lego Mindstorms, an off-the-shelf kit for constructing Lego robots. The developed WCET analysis tool is now a standard part in real-time courses given at Mälardalen University. Feel welcome to have a look at the used WCET analysis assignment (pdf)

The developed Bound-T WCET analysis tool is part of a real-time laboratory framework. Except the Bound-T tool, it consists of a small real-time micro-kernel and an operating system called Asterix, a configuration tool called Obelix, and a GNU GCC cross-compiler for the H8/3297. The laboratory framework has been developed with schedulability and timing predictability in mind.

Feel free to contact us or Tidorum Ltd if you want to use the developed WCET analysis tool for educational or industrial purposes. The porting work of the Bound-T tool to the Renesas H8/3297 microprocessor is described in the following publications:
