Title: Embedding the MatPLC
Issue Date: 2005
Abstract: The MatPLC is an international project to develop aprogram similar to a PLC (Programmable LogicController) for POSIX operating systems. It is an opensource application consisting of a core, genericmodules, and tools for creating custom modules. Sincemany control and monitoring systems are distributed innature, they require that the application be running onan embedded system capable of withstanding harshenvironments.This paper describes the porting ofthe MatPLC codebase to a commercial embedded system running on aPowerPC CPU. Time measurements were taken todetermine whether the resulting code would be suitablefor control applications.
