Everyone is talking about model-based development and code generation nowadays - with the help of domain-specific languages, developers can use these to obtain the highest possible benefit. At the joint booth of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, visitors to embedded world 2010 will be able to find out how this is done.
Many software defects are created when the solution idea is transferred into individual program logic structures and algorithms.
Domain-specific languages map the solution space to the problem world, i.e., they can do without transferring the solution idea into classical modeling languages or programming languages. Thus, the engineer can simply combine sensors and actuators with controls, for example, and formulate event chains in the application's nomenclature - the rest will be done by a generator, cost-efficiently and with predictable quality.
How such a domain-specific language can be developed easily, which tools are required to do so, and for which applications this technology is most suitable will be shown by Fraunhofer IESE at this year's embedded world.
Using unbalance detection as an example, it will be shown how complex concepts can be expressed and modified in a simple manner so that variants or system modifications become very easy.
These methods, which were developed in the context of the Fraunhofer Innovation Cluster for Digital Commercial Vehicle Technology, have already been used several times for product development and now have tool assistance for use in product development.
In the Fraunhofer Information and Communication Technology Group, we are cooperating with other Fraunhofer institutes on developing trend-setting key technologies for the future. Fraunhofer IESE is one of 59 institutes of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Together we have a major impact on shaping applied research in Europe and contribute to Germany's competitiveness in international markets.

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
