TiCoBasic - exact timing of program
Jitter free I/O access in nanosecond steps with the TiCo processor
Shortest available reaction time for fast data acquisition, open- and closed-loop control! This focus of Jäger Messtechnik is greatly intensified by the new TiCo processor, which enables real-time processing in the scale of nanoseconds. The TiCo (Timing Controller) being implemented into a Xilinx FPGA enhances the approved ADwin systems by a close-to-I/O, extremely fast pre-processing.
The freely programmable TiCo processor is optimized to I / O accesses in only one clock cycle to execute fully and without jitter - where a clock cycle is short, only 10 nanoseconds. This makes the TiCo the ideal complement to the main processor of the DSP TigerSHARC ADwin systems.
The proximity to hardware I/Os enables Tico perfectly to create complex timing and trigger signals, to simulate interfaces, control devices, and sensors or to create digital signal patterns.
Nanosecond real time - fully programmable with TiCobasic
Like ADbasic is the key to the DSPs of the ADwin systems, the TiCo processor is being programmed comfortably and fast in TiCoBasic.
TiCoBasic is easy to learn by its BASIC like syntax. The up-to-date development environment will support you intuitively and professionally, both in programming and in developing of a process. As an example the values of global variables of a running process are displayed in window of the development environment and can be changed online.
The built-in cross compiler generates and downloads the binary real-time files to the TiCo processor. Program changes can be easily done in a few seconds. The efficient working with TiCoBasic considerably reduces the effort for realizing your ideas.
