Low Level Applications

redundant IOC which utilizes ATCA (HPI) support - Artem Kazakov - KEK/Sokendai

  • using features of ATCAs Shelf Manger to make better decision for fail-over
  • Shelf Manger
    • Data is exchanged through redundant IPMB (Intelligent Platform Management Bus)
  • Redundant IOC
    • support is in BASE in 3.14.10
    • just download RIOC libs and link them to your IOC
    • How?
      • IOC1 and IOC2 providing the same PVs controlling the same hardware are attached to a shared network and share a private ethernet
      • within “a second” control can switch from one active to the passive, if IOC breaks down within 30s
  • Possible benefits of ATCA-aware RIOC
    • Failures can be predicted
      • i.e. temperature rising iniates switch to back-up
  • RMT - "Redundant Monitor Task" ??
    • Platform to program drivers for

RTEMS use at SLAC - Ernest Williams - LCLS

  • Status LCLS RTEM-based
    • 136 Coldfire-based embedded IOCs
    • ... and more
  • RTEMS
    • CEXP: prompt
  • devIocStats - OSI-fied VxStats - Stephanie Allison
  • RTEMS can now seriously recommended by LCLS as an alternative to using vxWorks

Fan-Out Timing Systems with two-way communication & cRIO-EVR - Jukka Pietarinen - Micro Research

  • CompactRIO EVR prototype
  • have a look at the talk

CLS Firewire Support - Steve Hunt - Alceli Systems

  • www.lightsource.ca

An Introduction to Epics/Tango - Steve Hunt - Alceli Systems

  • have a look

Development of Embedded EPICS on F3RP61-2L - Tadahiko Katoh - KEK/Sokendai

  • BSP ELDK based

asyn: What's new - Mark Rivers - CARS

  • Short intro
  • asynStandardInterfaces
  • Generic Device support
    • FIFO
    • ...
  • future plan
    • asynPortDriver C++ base class
      • makes many things easier

Motion Control at DLS - Matthew Pearson - Diamond Light Source

  • ...

Timing System Trigger Adapter Modules - Gram Cross - hytec-electronics

  • ...
  • nice Fusion application video
