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?

Good tutor genuinely interested in student’s needs. This course provided all I needed and more.

GS, Great Dunmow, UK

Excellent service received with queries I had when I had the trial EndNote. This was a factor which prompted me to go on to buy the product. An excellent service was received in response to a problem after the purchase of endnote.

JB, Manchester, UK

I am impressed – somebody actually cares enough about customer relations, not only to honour a promise to reply, but to remember the request! I hope your company appreciates you as much as I do.

RE, London, UK

“Looking online for a software that would perform the particular task we need at the moment (resolution of overlapped Gaussian-shaped peaks), I was glad to find out that a fully functional trial version of OriginPro was made available by your company. Also, watching one of the tutorial videos, all commands and short-cuts I needed to get my results were shown there. Very handy and a time-saver.”
