Timber is a programming language for real-time embedded systems. It was developed at the Swedish Institute of Computer Science as part of the Meta-CASE tools project. Timber is designed to support reactive systems in which computations are triggered by external events and must be completed within certain time constraints. The language allows system components to be expressed as finite state machines and supports both parallel and sequential composition of these machines. In addition, Timber offers explicit notations for expressing timing constraints, which can be analyzed through static verification techniques provided by the compiler to ensure that they are met at runtime.
