Distributed Time Server Enhances Network Test and Measurement

Kirkland, WA — Real Time Integration, Inc. announced today the addition of distributed time synchronization software to its NetAcquire product line. NetAcquire is a standalone data acquisition computer that acquires, processes, and updates real-world signals, and transfer this data to and from any network.

When real-time data is collected from many points on a network, it is often important to accurately correlate time stamps of incoming data. The NetAcquire Time Server module uses Network Time Protocol (SNTP) to maintain a highly accurate and synchronized clock.

The time protocol uses a reference server to distribute accurate time across the network to one or more clients. The time protocol incorporates sophisticated algorithms to eliminate the effects of network delay and jitter, and offers typical timing accuracy of 5 milliseconds on a local area network.

RTI Announces First Java-based Test and Measurement Toolkit

Java Clients use Ethernet-based NetAcquire™ Hardware

Real Time Integration, Inc. announced today the NetAcquire Java Toolkit that allows Java applets to acquire, process, and update real-time analog and digital data over an Ethernet network. Java applets use the NetAcquire Java Toolkit and a TCP/IP network to communicate with NetAcquire server hardware containing analog-to-digital conversion hardware.

NetAcquire is an intelligent data acquisition system that makes analog and digital data available over an Ethernet network. NetAcquire extends the cross-platform architecture of Java “write-once, run everywhere” systems by adding hardware input/output capabilities. Java is a hardware-independent environment, and the only way to interface to the real world is using network-based peripherals such as NetAcquire.

John Bono

Engineering Vice President

John Bono, a Seattle area native, graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Washington.  John started his career with Boeing Aerospace Company, working in a variety of roles. He received personal recognition from Boeing’s CEO for his contributions to 767 avionics.  John designed hardware and firmware for a Mil-Std-1553 bus interface and was the hardware lead and system designer for a B-1B flight simulator’s computer generated imagery display.  After Boeing, John joined Advanced Technology Laboratories (ATL) as a signal processing engineer. He was promoted to the role of ultrasound system architect before becoming the software and systems lead for an image storage and network transport system. During John’s tenure at ATL, he received a Technical Fellow award, became a member of the Senior Technical Staff, and had a role in ATL’s achievement of ISO 9001 certification.
