I have a blog post up at fsmlabs.com about our TimeKeeper software for time synchronization. TimeKeeper is currently aimed at financial trading markets, but we also hope to market it to electric powerÂ distribution and transmission engineers who have a similar need for precise time synchronization within substations and for instrumentation. There are also applications in data bases for someone with a little interest in innovation.
TimeKeeper really builds on what our experience with RTLinux taught us about barriers to use. TimeKeeper installs simply – no developer needed, it’s just an app; it requires nearly no configuration; and it is invisible to application code except that it makes sure they get accurate time when they ask for the time.
