Software platform for time-critical IoT systems


Software platform for time-critical IoT systems

Edge XRT from IOTech is a new software platform for time-critical and resource-constrained applications at the IoT Edge. It is designed to simplify the development of time-critical IoT systems at the Edge and to enable application portability, improved supportability and faster time-to-market for new IoT edge applications.

XRT runs on commodity hardware, independent of silicon provider and operating system and can be deployed as a native application, containerized and/or into a virtualized environment. Edge XRT is targeted at IoT applications with a need for one or all of the following characteristics: small memory footprint (as low as 100KB); ultra-low latency (from < 100 microseconds); predictable real-time data processing. Written entirely in C, Edge XRT is also extremely portable and can support legacy “brownfield” systems based older hardware, operating systems and development environments.

Edge XRT is designed for high performance edge computing use cases such as industrial control and real-time signal processing applications across different vertical markets including factory automation, oil and gas, utilities, smart energy and renewables. It also enables integration between the real-time edge control systems and higher-level SCADA applications.
Its small memory footprint and efficient use of computing resources also makes it suitable for microcontroller based IoT applications including instrumentation and equipment monitoring, automobile engine management systems, medical devices, home automation and consumer electronics.

Edge XRT can be deployed independently or as a Real-Time extension to any general purpose Edge Platform. For example, Edge XRT has been fully integrated with IOTech’s Edge Xpert, an industrial grade implementation of EdgeX Foundry, an open source edge platform.
