Ada was developed under contract of the United Stated department of Defense (DoD) from 1977 to 1983. Ada is based on the programming language Pascal, the name is derived from Ada Lovelace (1815–1852) who is called the first computer programmer. The aim of the DoD was, to unify the languages used in the defense area, and it was mandatory to use it in this domain. In this abstract we will demonstrate the strength of Ada deployed on the bare board TMS570LS31 from Texas Instruments.
Code parts of a small blinking application will be shown, with two approaches, one using task the other using timer. Further we will show the Ravenscar Profile and Restrictions, which speeds up the certification process for safety critical applications, final we will list the advantages of Ada compared to c, which was demonstrated in the examples.
