The HART (Hardware Access in Real-Time) Toolbox can be used to generate Scicos-blocks for hardware that have a C/C++ interface. The blocks can be used under Linux for soft and hard real time tasks (RTAI). Blocks are provided for DAQ (COMEDI).
- can easily added to Scilab 4.1.2, Scicoslab 4.4 or Scilab 5.3.0beta4 !
- RTAI and RT_PREEMPT Codegeneration
- All blocks can be used for soft real time (scicos/xcos simulation) or code generation
- module based structure
- Not only useful for hardware, just use the toolbox for any development of new Scicos-Blocks, which can be easy add to scicos
hart is fast and stable
My test setup: HART toolbox with USB-DUX D Scicoslab 4.4 and Scilab/Xcos 5.3.1 Ubuntu realtime kernel 2.6.31-11-rt Intel Core i3 I achieved very good realtime performance when runing as root with realtime priority. Without realtime priority deadlines are frequently missed.
