When component-based development is applied to distributed embedded systems, which are often safety-critical and subject to real-time constraints, it is of significant importance that reliable predictions of functional and extra functional properties can be derived at design-time. Preferably, analysis should be performed in early development phases, where the cost of modifying the design is lower. Centered on an example application from the automation domain, we show how a component model specifically intended for embedded systems can be combined with a language for high-level formal behavior modeling. This permits analysis of system properties, while also supporting reuse of behavioral models when components are reused.
