Real-time networking for automation applications
Small-footprint version of Real-Time Innovations’ NDDS middleware satisfies a wide range of real-time communication requirements for industrial automation applications.
Santa Clara, CA —Small-footprint version of Real-Time Innovations ’ NDDS middleware is designed for low-cost, memory-constrained applications. New implementation of NDDS requires less than 100 kB of memory and is currently deployed in a line of programmable logic controllers (PLCs).
Standard version of RTI’s NDDS is used in high-end PLCs. The availability of the modified version lets developers apply a common communication scheme across industrial control networks that contain a full range of PLC cost and functionality options. The product adds flexibility for creating automated systems, says the company, and gives manufacturers an open basis for interoperability when working with products from development partners.
The NDDS platform is a publish/subscribe middleware environment with integrated tools for system visualization, analysis, and real-time debugging. It is designed to cut time needed to implement communication within a distributed real-time network and provide a scalable, maintainable, and manageable infrastructure.
