Technology Selection

Not all PC’s, motherboards, and single board computers (SBCs) are suitable for every real-time application.  Our team is continuously benchmarking the latest hardware offerings and can provide guidance to ensure the solution that is delivered will meet your requirements.

There is a virtually endless array of I/O interface boards available on the computer board market.  Even when a computer board meets its published specification (often they don’t), how that board will perform under real-time load varies widely from board to board.  What is the computational load associated with performing read/writes on a given board?  Once your system is assembled with all devices reading/writing and serial communication scheduled, packed/unpacked, and made available for inspection and override, will you still have enough time in your real-time frame to execute your simulation or your control code?

Evaluating commercially available products, understanding your application requirements, and designing a COTS solution that matches your balance between performance and budget is what our Hardware Solutions Team brings to the table as your technology partner.
