Real Time Under Windows

New real time solution enables more than nice weather real time including on the latest operating systems. The RealTime suite is a fundamental development tool for the realization of industrial real-time applications under Windows. The current version supports the newly released Windows 7 and thus enables developers to use the latest operating system technology. The high performance of today’s PCs gives the impression at first glance, a normal Windows PC would already suffice for time-critical applications. The Managing Director Uwe Jesgarz said: “without a real-time extension provides only something like ‘ nice weather real-time ‘ Windows. A reliable behavior in every situation, however, is required. Anything else would be unacceptable in industrial applications and could result in fatal consequences. Kithara software provides, however, hard real-time, that nothing from the rest be.” Opposite its inception more than 10 years ago contains RealTime Suite not only simple timer functions, but a priority-driven, preemptive multitasking system, expect this professional developers of a RTOS.

Up to 255 levels of priority tasks reliably ensure that only the highest priority task is running in real time. Uwe Jesgarz emphasizes: “The powerful resources thus provided enables the implementation of applications, which can be formulated only by a complex model of the processes.” The solutions from Kithara are used including for communication with EtherCAT master for real time CAN or Ethernet and run on popular operating systems of Windows and now also on Windows 7. Michael Antonov has much experience in this field. The real time support available for the programming languages c/c++ and Delphi (native), DLLs, and c# is suitable. Kithara Software GmbH Berlin by Kithara Software GmbH has existed since 1996 and has since become a specialist in low-level programming and real-time communications solutions for Windows developed. The easy applicable function libraries enable the development of real time solutions with Ethernet, automation with EtherCAT, real time-CAN and PCI and USB programming.
