Kithara RealTime Suite—Real Time for Windows
Kithara RealTime Suite is a real-time extension for Windows. It consists of over 20 different function modules that can be freely combined. The potential fields of application are nearly endless and range from hardware communication to industrial automation and machine vision as well as automotive engineering.
Some of the core features
Real time and Windows:
The best of both Worlds
Combine extremely efficient real-time capabilities that meet even industrial high-tech standards with the benefits of the world's most popular operating system.
Clocked to real time
Create high-performance timers with stunning frequencies of 20 kHz and more and marvel at their accurate precision. Tactfully turn your real-time applications into the core element of your project.
Raise your automated applications to the next level. Benefit from Kithara’s years of experience in the field of high-efficiency automation. The proprietarily-developed and constantly optimized real-time EtherCAT Master allows you to automate even the most challenging tasks.
Big Data Storage
Don’t just wait for Big Data. Our unique real-time SSD storage is already able to write as well as read lossless data with several gigabytes per second, even during continuous operation. Freely structure almost endlessly large data sets according to your specifications with integrated MDF support.
KiK64: However you want it
Are you programming in 32 or 64 bit? Would you like to run a 32-bit application on 64-bit Windows? What usually is not possible for real-time applications, is provided to you as a powerful tool in the form of the unique KiK64 function.
Big Measurement Data
Thanks to Real-Time MDF
With MDF in real time you gain a highly efficient storage system for hierarchically structured and finely adjustable measurement data. Virtually endless data sizes (up to a theoretical 2^64 Bytes) ensure detailed and complete data sets.
PTP Sets the Rythm
Bring all clocks within your real-time system into perfect unison with the Precision Time Protocol (IEEE 1588). Synchronize all network participants, be it PC, embedded computer, EtherCAT slave or camera, with high-precision time stamps at deviations in the sub-microsecond range—and via GPS even worldwide.
Very Important Processes
First things first—the high-performance multitasking system utilizes 255 generously dimensioned priority levels to reliably make sure that you always have absolute control over your most important processes—priority-based, preemptive, flexibly programmable.
Real Time does not have to be expensive. You only buy what you require. Put together your very own software from over 20 highly effective modules, perfectly tailored to you.
Light, Camera, Real Time
Real-time machine vision optimally implemented. Use our ground-breaking functions for lightning-fast, lossless capturing and processing of image data. With advanced technologies such as GigE Vision, Halcon or OpenCV in real time, you have everything in sight.
For every task the optimal tool
A smooth development process is the dream of every programmer. For this purpose, we provide you with helpful tools.
The high-performance EtherCAT Master has been operating successfully worldwide for over 10 years and is ideally suited for highly customizable real-time automation. With low cycle times in the microsecond range, cabel redundancy, hot connect as well as flexible programmability, you can integrate EtherCAT optimally into your overall solution.
Fast Real-time Ethernet
with up to 40 Gbit/s
Solid, scalable, flexible—capitalizing on Ethernet means investing into the future. This is why our very own real-time Ethernet drivers support almost every single controller by Intel, now with fast 40 Gbit/s as well.
Accessing CAN in Real Time
Indispensable for both automation as well as automotive engineering. Develop the best possible CAN drivers thanks to hard real-time capabilities and intuitive vendor-independent API. Using the CAN-FD extension, data length can even be expanded by a factor of 8.
From toaster to supercomputer
From absolute low-end to extreme high-end—even a simple PC yields amazing real-time results. Or would you rather use a computer with 48 logical CPUs? Kithara Realtime Suite takes your machine to the next level.
Always the right interface
With Kithara RealTime Suite you have the latest technologies at your fingertips. From hardware and network communication to automation and machine vision to automotive and big data, you control your project with the most crucial standards, molded into a single powerful real-time system.
Staying on track
We put you in the driving seat of a high-performance real-time system which allows for the development of even the most cutting-edge vehicle assistance functions and even autonomous driving. Incorporating the most important automotive bus systems such as FlexRay, CAN FD and BroadR-Reach you can get your project into gear.
As close as possible
to the interface
The best software begins with the hardware. Our in-depth real-time drivers start exactly where it matters most—at the numerous hardware interfaces of you PC.
It’s a Wrap with GigE Vision
Via GigE 2.0, image data streams can be captured with up to 10 Gbit/s as well as synchronized down to the microsecond. Due to extended real-time buffers, image loss is reliably avoided. In no way are our real-time drivers camera-shy but instead are vendor-independent while supporting the entire product spectrum for GigE Vision
Getting Ethernet on the Road
Why not use the universal features of Ethernet for automobiles as well? With BroadR-Reach and real-time capabilities together, physical Ethernet networks can be directly accessed and controlled in order to develop the advanced vehicle functions of tomorrow.
