Abstract We present a tool suite for building, simulating, and analyzing the results of hierarchical descriptions of the scheduling policy for modules sharing a bus in real-time applications. These schedules can be based on a variety of factors including characteristics of messages and time slicing and are represented in a hierarchical tree-like structure that specifies multiple levels of arbitration. This structure can describe many popular arbitration schemes. Our sim-ulator evaluates the specified scheduling structure on a set of mes-sage traces for a given bus. We illustrate our approach by applying it to two examples: the SAE Automotive Benchmark and Voice Over IP (VoIP). Although this paper deals with just bus schedul-ing policies, the approach can be easily extended to other real-time scheduling problems.
