ADwin TiCoBasic: programming exact timing

Jitter free I/O access in nanosecond steps with the TiCo processor tico-virtex5

Shortest available reaction time for fast data acquisition, open- and closed-loop control! The new TiCo processor enables real-time processing within nanoseconds. Implementing the TiCo (Timing Controller) into a Xilinx FPGA enhances the approved ADwin systems by a close-to-I/O, extremely fast pre-processing.

The completely programmable TiCo processor is optimised to execute I/O access in a single, complete and jitter-free clock cycle, where a clock cycle takes only ten nanoseconds. This, in turn, increases TiCo‘s compatability with the ADwin systems’ main processor, TigerSHARC-DSP.

The proximity to hardware I/Os enables TiCo to precisely create complex timing and trigger signals, to simulate interfaces, control devices and sensors or to create digital signal patterns.

Nanosecond real-time – freely programmable with TiCoBasic

As ADbasic provides the key to the DSPs of the ADwin systems, so do the TiCo processor programmes comfortably and quickly in TiCoBasic.

TiCoBasic is easy to learn using its BASIC-like syntax. The up-to-date development environment will support you intuitively and professionally, both in programming and in the development of a process. For example, the values of global variables of a running process are displayed in a 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. Efficiently working with TiCoBasic considerably reduces the effort in realising your ideas.

What do our Customers say about us?

Bob worked tirelessly over many hours (and days!) to try to resolve the issue. His efforts were truly appreciated on my behalf. He was polite, caring and nothing was too much trouble. Many, many thanks Bob.

THANK YOU – you are a star and have saved my thesis! Your instructions worked perfectly. If I am purchasing upgrades I will definitely go to Adept now I know what level support you can provide.

CB, Plymouth, UK

Very helpful in providing advice on which courses were applicable. Very clear. Checked with trainees to ensure the pace was accurate. Very aware of individual needs of trainees without letting individual issues take over. My interaction with Adept has always been very good. Staff are helpful, efficient and responsive.
