I am trying to understand if raspberry 3B+ or 4 is suitable for softmotion application where needed axis synchronisation (for example gearing two axis).
Since the softmotion package is available for the raspberry runtime I assume that's possible but on the other hand I found forum talks where it is told raspberry is not real-time and therefore not suitable for soft motion application.
Can you please help me for a better understanding?
Thanks a lot
depends basically on which drives you want to use. (Ethercat / CANopen / Stepper...)
In general you need to have a rt_preempt patched Linux kernel,
then I would say the Pi is motion capable.
Thank you for your reply. Do you suggest to use the Pi 4 with multicore license or the Pi3 B+ should be enough?
..both are possible mc prefered.
