Abstract

The Ravenscar profile defines a subset of Ada tasking that can be statically analysable for real-time properties. The implications of the Ravenscar profile and other commonly used high-integrity restrictions for developing device drivers are analysed in the paper, and some guidelines are provided based on the analysis. The technical content of the paper is based on the authors' experience in developing communication drivers for the Open Ravenscar real time Kernel (ORK) that are well suited for space onboard applications. A reference architecture for device drivers is proposed, and two instances of drivers based on it are described.
