Edge XRT

A software foundry that helps drive IoT innovation, global adoption, market velocity and scale at the edge

The Time-Critical Edge Software Platform

Edge XRT is the first Edge Software Platform designed specifically for Time-Critical and resource-constrained IoT systems.

In addition to providing recognized core IoT Edge Framework capabilities such as edge data processing, Southbound OT connectivity and Northbound IT/Cloud connectivity, Edge XRT was designed to support IoT applications with a need for either:

  • ultra-low latency data processing (from under 100 µSec) or
  • predictable real-time processing or
  • a small memory footprint (from 100KB)

Edge XRT is also extremely portable and can support legacy “brownfield” systems based on older hardware, operating systems and development environments. Edge XRT is a fully integrated and complementary extension of the Linux Foundation’s EdgeX FoundryTM platform that enables the EdgeX ecosystem to support the full spectrum of secure hard and soft real-time Edge Computing requirements.


  • Simplifies real-time development and provides application portability, improved supportability, delivering faster time-to-market and ease of product evolution
  • Provides productized reusable real-time infrastructure (e.g. real-time thread prioritization and scheduling) allowing users to focus on value-add applications
  • Optimized – written in C for low footprint, portability, and real-time performance
  • Complete deployment flexibility –  can be deployed as a native executable application or containerized (e.g. docker) and/or into a virtualized environment
  • Open – runs on any silicon, operating system (with POSIX support) and hardware
  • Increases application re-use across different use cases
  • Standard connectivity - “out-of-the-box” for  many of the most common Southbound OT (e.g. Modbus, OPC UA etc.) and Northbound IT (e.g. Multi-Cloud, MQTT, REST) communication technologies
  • Compatible with emerging industry standards such as IEC6113 and 61499


Edge XRT is targeted at high-performance edge computing use cases such as industrial control and real-time signal processing in different vertical markets including factory automation, oil and gas, utilities,  smart energy and renewables. It also enables integration between the real-time Edge control systems and higher-level IT, SCADA and Cloud applications.
