Hard real-time systems are pervasive. They must meet processing deadlines, they tend to be hidden from view and most people's awareness, and they are dependable. The architecture for hard real-time systems focuses primarily on data flow and task control but the architecture directly affects manufacturability, power, cooling, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), packaging, and security. Most hard real-time systems are in mission-critical or safety-critical applications that require rigorous development in design, test, integration, and technical support.
