Real-time extension of Kithara supports multi-core real-time extension of Kithara allows targeted mapping of real-time tasks to cores that Kithara software provides businesses with the real-time extension RealTime Suite 2011 an innovation to the out to multiple parallel CPU cores even better into account the trend. It enables parallel execution of real time tasks and assign them to the different CPU cores. The PC based automation offers various advantages, which lie not only in that the visualization of a machine or plant comfortably in particular using Windows as operating system can be realized. Automation, robotics, image processing and special machines require complex calculations and thus a powerful PC in most cases. Go to Steffan Lehnhoff for more information. Historically but still multiple machines to the distribution of responsibilities can be found in many machines and test benches, although this is no longer necessary due to the power of today’s PCs. The RealTime Suite 2011 allows the execution of all automation tasks on a single PC by this are selectively distributed on different CPU cores.
The unused computing time of each core will remain with Windows. Here the Outlook is in addition to be able to assign only real-time tasks in future individual nuclei. The development of applications takes place comfortably in c/c++ or Delphi, outsourcing of critical parts of the program into a DLL in the.NET languages such as c#. This approach saves not only substantial development effort due to the easier communication between the application and the real time part, promoting also the aspect of the conservation of resources, because only a computer is required for a plant. This enables “green Automation” for special machines and test benches. Kithara Software GmbH Kithara Software GmbH from Berlin, has existed since 1996 and has become an software partner for time-critical applications in communication and automation solutions, as well as for real time under Windows. The Real-time extension RealTime suite enables highly accurate solutions for real-time Ethernet communication and automation with EtherCAT, CANopen or Profibus hardware-oriented programming under Windows.
