This book describes a cross-domain architecture and design tools for networked complex systems where application subsystems of different criticality coexist and interact on networked multi-core chips. The architecture leverages multi-core platforms for a hierarchical system perspective of mixed-criticality applications. This system perspective is realized by virtualization to establish security, safety and real-time performance. The impact further includes a reduction of time-to-market, decreased development, deployment and maintenance cost, and the exploitation of the economies of scale through cross-domain components and tools.


  • Describes an end-to-end architecture for hypervisor-level, chip-level, and cluster level
  • Offers a solution for different types of resources including processors, on-chip communication, off-chip communication, and I/O
  • Provides a cross-domain approach with examples for wind-power, health-care, and avionics
  • Introduces hierarchical adaptation strategies for mixed-criticality systems
  • Provides modular verification and certification methods for the seamless integration of mixed-criticality systems
  • Covers platform technologies, along with a methodology for the development process
  • Presents an experimental evaluation of technological results in cooperation with industrial partners
