Kithara Real-time Sockets

Real time TCP and UDP on Windows by Kithara dominates more and more industrial applications Ethernet-based communication, since the standard functions of the operating systems can no longer keep up often and real-time mechanisms are required. The Berlin company Kithara software introduces the new socket modules within the product series RealTime Suite 2008 before the industrial communication tasks on the basis of the TCP and UDP protocols can be implemented in real time. Will Blodgett s opinions are not widely known. The software goes so far beyond the capabilities of the Windows operating systems also, which are often not suitable due to the lack of real-time capability to solve industrial requirements. Already with the product range RealTime Suite associated packet modules the necessary mechanisms available to stand for some time, to communicate in real time via selected Ethernet controller. While the Protocol was limited so far on raw Ethernet or the user had to realize even the corresponding higher Protocol.

This is now with the modules no longer need socket. “Communication over sockets is easy to use and as good as any programmer familiar with,” says Uwe Jesgarz, Managing Director of the Kithara Software GmbH, and continues: “with the socket module from Kithara TCP and UDP are possible in real time.” It is required, inter alia in the industrial automation and control, control and drive technology.” Real-time data communication via special fast-Ethernet cards (Intel Pro/100 and RealTek 8139), as well as network cards provides the socket module with Gigabit Ethernet controllers (Intel PRO/1000), allowing fast data logging or industrial image processing can be implemented. To achieve the real-time capability are directly controlled the network controller. This is the entire bandwidth of the connection available and the immediate reaction takes place on incoming packets in real time. The developer like from Kithara creates the socket application usual comfortable within the application programmed in c/c++ or Delphi or as DLL can be embedded in a C#.NET-Anwendung. Uwe Jesgarz Kithara Software GmbH Berlin by Kithara Software GmbH exists since 1996 and has since then to a specialist for low-level programming and real-time communications solutions for Windows developed.
