MIL is now available to run natively in IntervalZero’s RTX64 real-time operating system platform for Windows. RTX64 runs on its own dedicated CPU core(s) alongside Windows to provide a more tightly bound deterministic environment, with response-critical operations such as image capture, processing and analysis, output activation and real-time communication being performed in RTX64.
Development for RTX64 is done in C/C++ using Visual Studio and a subset of the Windows API. MIL for RTX64 supports image capture using GigE Vision® and supported Matrox frame grabbers. Distributed MIL’s shared memory protocol is available to efficiently handle communication and data exchange, including images, between a MIL process running on RTX64 and one running on Windows. The required MIL licenses are shared between Windows and RTX64.
