Components are receiving attention as a means of advancing the state of software distribution beyond the traditional choices of source code, compiled binary executable, and compiled libraries. In this paper, we examine lightweight component models for embedded real-time software systems, and propose two different component models based on the concepts of actors and models of computation.
