BroadR-Reach Ethernet in Real Time Kithara Software has announced support for BroadR-Reach within the »RealTime Suite«. With real-time capabilities for the BroadR-Reach standard, automobile developers are able to directly control and test physical Ethernet networks for vehicles.
Kithara RealTime Suite with PTP Our real-time function library will soon have added support for the Precision Time Protocol (IEEE 1588 v2), allowing for high-precision computer synchronization with deviations in the sub-microsecond range. Combined with the renowned real-time capabilities of our software, accurate timestamps can be generated and synchronized.
Trade shows 2018: Automatica & VISION Next year, we will attend two trade shows. In June, and for the first time, we will be at the Automatica in Munich to showcase our newest developments surrounding production process automation. Early November, you can meet us once again at the VISION in Stuttgart including several innovations for the field of machine vision.
