The INtime® for Windows real-time software combines deterministic, hard real-time control applications with the standard Windows operating system without the need for additional controller hardware.
INtime was designed specifically to take advantage of the powerful capabilities of the Intel x86 processor architecture including multicore.
Therefore your real-time and non-real-time applications run in separate virtual machines on a single computer, for cost-effective, reliable control that is easy to develop and maintain.
Windows still runs natively preserving its feature set and performance and does not compromise your real-time tasks. Time-critical I/Os are directly assigned to the INtime kernel and run completely independent from Windows.
You can take full advantage of latest multi-core processors to scale real-time applications with your needs. Running multiple INtime instances on your x86 multi-core platform makes best use of cores in control environments.
The introduction of GOBSnet (Global Objects network) allows for tightly coupled communication in between INtime® instances and Windows for optimized system performance. This model is now enhanced as it works across the wire with the new standalone INtime® Distributed RTOS release.
