Hypervisor: RT-Linux + Windows
Using the LxWin Hypervisor it is possible to run Windows and a hard real-time Linux in parallel. Plenty of Linux drivers, e.g. for fieldbus controllers or GigE camera systems, communication stacks (EtherCAT, Profinet, OPC, OPC UA, TSN, ...) or complex software solutions like CNC controller or software PLCs can be used without any change under LxWin.
Customers looking for a Windows real-time extension also get great benefit from using LxWin. The hard real-time performance together with a seamless Microsoft Visual Studio integration makes it a perfect platform for such use cases as well.
TSN is well known as the future technical base for real-time, deterministic, resilient and congestion-free Ethernet. TSN provides determinism on hardware layer, but software will still introduce latencies. The acontis TSN stack provides a hard real-time solution for various platforms which overcome the limitations of the standard TCP/IP stack of the underlying operating system.
LxWin has been updated to a new version, V6.2.5, with support for Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP), and various performance enhancements to the Linux kernel.
acontis has released a new software tool for Windows that enables tunneling of third-party EoE communications through the EtherCAT Master software and onto the EtherCAT network.
acontis releases new web-based EtherCAT configuration and diagnosis tool, with dark mode user interface.
