User-friendly Modules Design Real-time Local Bus: EtherIO APAX I/O local bus adopts raeal-time I/O access methodology to ensure deterministic control with real-time performance. Contributed by the EtherIO driver technology which handles I/O data process with less CPU resource, the I/O scan rate can be maintained within 1 ms, offering time deterministic I/O. The I/O processing is running on the kernel mode, and user’s program can get the data through simple API. All these deliver real-time performance regardless of the number of I/O points. Programmers can concentrate on their application...
