Power PMAC Integrated Development Environment (IDE)

  • Supports Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and 10, 32- and 64-bit versions.
  • Manages project files into different divisions: motion programs, PLCs, background and realtime C programs, Header Files, kinematics files, and more
  • Compiles C code and downloads Script and C programs to PMAC directly
  • Provides System Setup tools for detecting, diagnosing, and configuring hardware and the associated PMAC software settings
  • Provides other tools for watching variables, debugging programs, scoping and plotting information, and tuning motors
  • Provides quick and easy ways to back up configurations, download new firmware, and restore existing configurations
  • Free to download and use

Linux Real-Time Operating System

Power PMAC runs on Linux, an open-source, public-domain operating system.

    Standard Linux has a non-preemptive multi-tasking kernel

  • The kernel provides an execution environment for different applications
  • The kernel implements services and interfaces for the applications
  • Without pre-emption, cannot do hard real-time control tasks (e.g. servos)
  • Power PMAC uses preemptive real-time kernel replacement

  • Xenomai open-source real-time kernel
  • Handles all hardware interrupts itself, blocks them from regular Linux
  • Runs single real-time application to handle Power PMAC “foreground” tasks (phase, servo, real-time interrupt built-in and user-written)
  • Releases to regular Linux as “general-purpose OS” (GPOS) when interrupt tasks are done
  • Linux GPOS can run multiple applications

  • Dedicated Power PMAC “background tasks”
  • User C subroutines and application programs
  • Any program, even if unrelated to Power PMAC, compiled in any language that Xenomai understands
