From the Lab to the Skies Using an RF-Link

One of the greatest benefits of the ADEPT Framework is the easy of transition from virtual development and test to physical integration and verification. However, when your physical platform is mobile, such as a UAS, a solution is needed to extend your distributed framework from the laboratory to your mobile application. This article presents one solution to this challenge. 

Dynamics of Real-Time Simulation

Computational methods in real-time simulation and control are in general not well understood by scientists and engineers, even when they have had extensive experience in non-real-time simulation. Without a deep understanding of the first principles nature of this technology the real-time engineer can fall into many traps. This book is made available to help anyone strengthen their knowledge of the dynamics of real-time and help us all develop better solutions as the world of complex systems becomes increasingly complex.

The rtxd Project: Open Source Real-time for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)

This whitepaper describes the fundamentals of the rtxd project and explains why it makes sense for ADI and others to invest their time and resources toward this effort.
