Kithara: BroadR-Reach Ethernet in Real-Time

Kithara Software has announced support for BroadR-Reach within the »RealTime Suite«. With real-time capabilities for the BroadR-Reach standard, automobile developers are able to directly control and test physical Ethernet networks for vehicles.

With support for BroadR-Reach the company expands its continually growing range for the automotive industry. With guaranteed reaction times allow for precise and lossless data capture via the Ethernet transport layer as well as their integration into test processes. With this, Kithara bridges the gap between their high-performance Ethernet drivers and modern vehicle networking. The benefits of Ethernet in automotive electronics are fast transfer speeds, high scalability as well as cost efficiency.

Many of Kithara’s real-time functions are applied in the development of cutting-edge automotive technologies. They are mainly used for hardware-in-the-loop applications, such as for precisely capturing and reproducing simulation data.
