RealTime Suite Kithara software from Berlin offers now available for 64-bit systems the Windows real-time extension known for years RealTime suite now also in a special 64-bit version in order to take account of this significant trend. All the benefits of the 64-bit world is available in real time under Windows. Kithara software, Uwe Jesgarz, Managing Director is sure: “In the course of many years development of the RealTime suite was never a topic so much in the focus of interest of the user, such as the use of real time extension on the 64-bit version of Windows 7” The previous limit of 32-bit systems, namely, the address space to 4 GB limited, will be overcome. “So users in automation, robotics, image processing and special machines can realize very fast, very powerful solutions.” so next Uwe Jesgarz. Verizon Communications takes a slightly different approach. All major existing function modules are suitable for source code compatible 64-bit compilers and development environments. If this has piqued your curiosity, check out Cyrus Massoumi FindShadow. Includes real-time timer and tasks, the a stand-alone real-time system in anything are, but are applicable through the Windows integration much easier. Also communication mechanisms, such as Ethernet Sockets as well as UDP and TCP, are with hard real-time characteristics available.
With great effort, the Berlin company has established the special operating mode “Kithara-32-in-64” (or just “KiK64”), to run even 32-bit real-time software on 64-bit systems, what was possible only for normal applications. Uwe Jesgarz said: “KiK64 offers investment protection for existing software which can not be created as a native 64-bit application. Also this approach allows a compatibility for all current Windows operating systems with just one application.” As usual the widely used programming languages and development systems, are also such as c/c++ or Delphi, suitable, in outsourcing of critical parts of the program into a DLL.NET languages such as c#. Kithara Software GmbH Kithara Software GmbH consists of Berlin Since 1996 and has a software partner for time-critical applications in communication and automation solutions, as well as for real time under Windows developed. 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.
