Low-Latency High-Speed Real-Time Networking for Test and Measurement
The increased complexity of modern real-time systems and simulations requires collaborative real-time computation and synchronization between remote real-time sub-systems.
REPLICA combines Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) technology and the concept of reflective memory to offer a scalable low-latency real-time network that can exchange data deterministically and orders of magnitude faster than existing state-of-the-art real-time networking solutions.
Introducing REPLICA, Low-Latency High-Speed Real-Time Networking by Genuen
Low-Latency, Real-Time Networking for HIL
REPLICA uses RDMA and proprietary IP to share data across systems. Unlike traditional reflective memory networks, Genuen’s approach is scalable and can be used with COTS infrastructure to synchronize test measurements and calculations across networked HIL controllers.
Today’s XIL System Constraints
Ubiquitous implementation of distributed real-time XIL systems for streamlined test data hinges on solving the problem of high-speed low-latency real-time network communications across multi-vendor systems. Existing solutions for reflective memory applications include limiting to a single vendor or constraining equipment nodes, physical locations, or scalability – all of which are counterproductive to business success.

RDMA-based Solutions for Low-Latency Real-Time Networks
RDMA significantly improves the implementation of reflective memory networks. By approaching reflective memory with RDMA, engineers can access an off-the-shelf, open architecture that delivers w low-latency, real-time network on existing infrastructure.
