RTAI - Real Time Application Interface Official Website

This is the homepage of RTAI - the RealTime Application Interface for Linux - which lets you write applications with strict timing constraints for your favourite operating system. Like Linux itself this software is a community effort. If you are interested in what it does just join our mailing list and help our team!

RTAI supports several architectures:

  • x86 (with and without FPU and TSC)
  • x86_64
  • PowerPC
  • ARM (StrongARM; ARM7: clps711x-family, Cirrus Logic EP7xxx, CS89712, PXA25x)
  • m68k (supporting both MMU and NOMMU cpus)

The RTAI distribution includes RTAI-Lab, a tool chain to convert block diagrams into RTAI executables and to monitor their operation on various targets.

 
RTAI 4.0-test1 released
October 28, 2013
The tarball of RTAI 4.0-test1 is available at rtai-4.0-test1.tar.bz2
It is the first test release, supporting Linux 3.x, (3.4.67, 3.5.7, 3.8.13) and unifying i386/x86_64, plus scattered improvements. Having tested it intensively already, we do not foresee many other tests releases. What is likely needed the most is to have it tested to verify building for different environments (Linux, gcc, configure/build tool chain, hardware).
