Intel® DevCloud: Edge Workloads

Edge Controls for Industrial (ECI)

This is a platform for creating software-defined control solutions with real-time compute, standards-based connectivity, and IT-like manageability.

Edge Control for Industrial (ECI) features:

  • CPU and kernel optimizations and benchmarking tools for real-time applications including the Preempt RT kernel
  • TSN (time-sensitive networking) reference software for deterministic networking
  • An edge-control protocol bridge that reduces complexity by bridging multiple industrial protocols
  • Support for ACRN*, KVM*, and RTS* hypervisors to consolidate physical hardware and run real-time workloads in partitioned virtualized environments
  • Real-time optimizations to easily create custom embedded Linux* operating systems
  • PLCopen* motion control library for developing applications that are reusable for multiple hardware platforms
