I mentioned earlier that we were working with Koenig on an industrial reference platform that we unveiled at Freescale Technology Forum. Well, we showed it and it was a very popular exhibit.
It combines EtherCAT master, EtherCAT slave, an inverted pendulum to demonstrate real-time control and QNX adaptive partitioning. The adaptive partitioning portion demonstrates how real-time control can be maintained even when a runaway application consumes all available CPU.
Rather than spend a thousand words describing the demo I thought I could send you to see a video that covers it off nicely.
Go to http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/overview.jsp?nodeId=052577903689DC97F9, click on the industrial tab and check out the EtherCAT on Neutrino video.
OK – so technically it is not a picture.
