The RTS is a high-performance, standards-based, open-architecture real-time system for hardware-in-the-loop simulation, controller prototyping, and test applications.  The RTS is a VME based solution that features PowerPC VME single board computers (SBCs) for the primary computational power.  A wide range of VME, PMC, and IP off-the-shelf I/O interface cards may be used to customize each RTS real-time system.

The RTS utilizes the RT-Exec small-footprint real-time kernel as the base operating system.  The RTS combined with the ADvantage Framework provides a complete, integrated solution for development, integration, and verification testing.

I/O Interface Boards

The ADvantage Framework supports a wide range of I/O interface boards supplied by industry-leading computer board manufacturers.  Refer to our Product Index for a listing of supported I/O boards.  If you don’t find a board of interest listed please contact us.  We are constantly supporting new I/O interface boards and update the Product Index periodically.  If there is an I/O board you would like to use in your solution we can nearly always add support for your project.  We also offer a DDK so you can also write ADvantage drivers on your own.
