PAR and STARTP Take the Tanks
Authors: Teig, Řyvind
The article describes how SPoC (Southampton Portable occam Compiler) has been used -- together with hand-written C -- in Autronica's new GL-100 radar-based fluid gauge. The final C-code is running on a Texas TMS320C32 DSP. Some 2600 lines of C code have been automatically translated from the occam sources. SPoC's non-preemptive scheduling filled our needs with a few exceptions. The main problem has been aligning occam 2 and ANSI-C data abstractions. A realtime system based on language support of high-level concurrency abstractions (as opposed to separate real-time kernel and use of library calls without direct language support) is soon to monitor worldwide charging and discharging of oil tankers.
