Abstract

Studies recently and currently in progress address timing demands for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) applications. Certain areas of research seek to modify modern computer architecture to meet the needs of CPS applications. Moreover, specific modifications in current computer architecture have produced newer computer architectures and processors, such as precision timed (PRET) processors. This thesis focuses on identifying, modeling, and simulating thread management methods in hardware used by the current open-source PRET soft processor, the MultiFire.
