Industry 4.0 has entered many industries and is still today a expanding market. A freely programmable control for Power electronics necessary.
Within this project, a performance analysis of so-called embedded CPUs or parallel CPUs on which an RTOS is used.
The tested real-time applications are instantiated by the Cactus Framework developed by Siemens, which describes a given problem in a modelable control flow graph. Furthermore, latencies or latency fluctuations are to be investigated during communication with peripheral devices, which are connected through a GPIO, SPI or PWM interface and compared with data from non-RT systems, in order to give an assessment which hardware costs behind the fulfillment of real-time conditions of the respective application.
