Buffer Control

Current Languages


When running in contour, linear interpolation, or vector mode on current Galil motion controllers, the firmware provides a segment buffer. This allows the user to send data to the controller in a first in, first out (FIFO) fashion. The buffer examples provide the following operation for the relevant mode of motion.

  1. Connection address and a data file path are provided at command line.
  2. The example will then run the relevant mode of motion, read in the file via a file stream, and service the buffer until all data has been buffered.
  3. The example will then terminate the contour mode and return.
