Automotive control units increasingly are subject to requirements regarding safety and reliability. This is due to new functionalities (driving assistant systems, drive-by-wire, etc.) on the one hand and the growing cross-linking of different functionalities on the other hand. When designing systems of this kind it is required to choose an appropriate combination of hardware and software components. These must fulfill the functional requirements as well as safety requirements and must not violate any other non-functional requirements such as costs and energy consumption.
