I am considering using RTAI linux for some motor control development.
My system will basicaly need to do a calculation every 100uS (0.1ms) and
send the result back using the serial line. I can get a serial port that
will run 1.5 Mbit.
The system will run basic PC hardware.
But I cannot figure out if this serial board will be supported in RTAI?
I have not used RTAI before, but as i read the function of RTAI it will need
its own driver for the serial port. As it cannopt use drivers from the
Normal Linux kernel. (the serial communication must be in hard realtime
I have looked at LabRob's project with RTAI
http://www.ladispe.polito.it/robotica/Activities/RT/ It looks interesting.
