The Case for the Precision Timed (PRET) Machine

Edwards, Stephen A.; Lee, Edward A.

It is time for a new era of processors whose temporal behavior is as easily controlled as their logical function. We call them precision timed (PRET) machines. Our basic argument is that real-time systems, in which temporal behavior is as important as logical function, are an important and growing application; processor architecture needs to follow suit.
