Kithara Software offers software products for real-time, automation and hardware-dependent programming.
Kithara RealTime Suite
Kithara RealTime Suite is a modular real-time extension for Windows, which combines hardware-dependent programming, communication, automation protocols and image processing into a powerful real-time system. With seamless integration of the modules you get all required components in a single customizable package:
High-performance and high-precision real-time multitasking under Windows
Automation with EtherCAT® und CANopen®
Communication via Ethernet, USB, CAN (-FD), FlexRay, LIN and other
Image capture with GigE Vision® and USB3 Vision® as well as image processing with Halcon and OpenCV
Freely customizable and combinable from all available function modules (only few dependencies)
Efficient EtherCAT® Master under Windows with high-precision real-time multitasking.
Efficient CANopen® Master under Windows with high-precision real-time multitasking.
High-performance real-time image capture with GigE Vision® and USB3 Vision® as well as image processing with Halcon and OpenCV
Real-time communication with USB devices under Windows via direct access to XHCI.
Kithara Integration Kits
The software DIAdem is optimally tailored to the requirements for automation levels 2 and 3. It can both configure and perform measurement and automation tasks as well as meeting demands for level 3 by providing powerful data management and analysis capabilities. The deciding factor for the efficiency of the system is the connection between these two levels. This is where the DIAdem EtherCAT Driver from a-solution, based on the EtherCAT-Master from Kithara Software, comes into play.
Kithara Driver Collection
Module selection for hardware-dependent programming and driver development. It provides function modules that allow for the access to I/O ports, physical memory, interrupt handling, serial communication (UART, USB) as well as simple Windows timers.
Module selection specifically for PCI driver development (PCI, PCIe PCMCIA/Cardbus boards, ExpressCard devices, ISA bus etc.).
Module selection specifically for USB driver development, development (USB devices).
Kithara Development Tools
The Kernel Tracer is a tool for real-time message logging for Windows (logging of computer operations with exact timing analysis) under Windows. It allows for the analysis of internal processes in a real-time context and therefore is an optimal additon to Kithara RealTime Suite.
Kithara Performance Analyzer is a development-related visualization assistant for simultaneous display and monitoring of several relevant resources regarding system performance. This makes it an important tool for determining a system's real-time performance.
Kithara DOS Enabler
Kithara DOS Enabler allows for DOS programs to run natively and in real time on Windows 7, 8 and 10 in 32-bit as well as 64-bit.
