KPA EtherCAT Master on INtime 6

Comprehensive and cost effective

(PresseBox) (Lauf a.d. Pegnitz (Nuremberg) & Beaverton, OR / Haar (Muenchen), ) koenig-pa GmbH (KPA), a leading provider for EtherCAT software products, announces for SPS 2014 a KPA EtherCAT Master Stack solution on new INtime 6 of TenAsys®. Using latest multicore Atom™ processors for real-time solutions provide for significant cost reductions while leveraging the advantages of EtherCAT technology. Estimated availability of the release is beginning of 2015.

Deterministic, Real-Time Performance on Low Cost Intel® Atom™ Processor-Based Platforms

The time-critical requirements of the EtherCAT master can be mapped efficiently on today's widely available Atom processors while reducing cost, system size, energy consumption, design complexity, and time to market.

Embedded developers can now consolidate real-time and general purpose applications onto a single board PC system, a solution that costs about a hundred dollars to manufacture. This is possible with latest low power, fanless platforms based on multicore Atom processors and INtime for Windows from TenAsys, running real-time and the Windows® operating system at the same time.

There is also capability for a multi EtherCAT master setup using the standalone multicore INtime Distributed RTOS. Developers can benefit from individual IP addresses for each INtime CPU core and an integrated virtual Ethernet switch allowing for standard TCP/IP based communication between INtime cores but also to the outside of the system, e.g. KPA EtherCAT Studio.
