Subject: RTEMS Support in IPAC 2.14 for Acromag IP520?

Hi everyone,

We now have a need to use the IP520 from Acromag.
Since the GreenSprings/SBS IP Octal UART is now obsolete 

The good news is we found support for the Acromag IP520 in ipac 2.14 for vxWorks.

However, we need a version for RTEMS.  Has anyone already provided support for RTEMS?
In this case, we are also using an Acromag VME IP Carrier (XVME-9670)  which works well :)

In general, we are thinking:

The IP520 module could be used not only on a VME Acromag Carrier with VxWorks but the following example combinations are also possible:
     (1) Acromag VME IP Carrier, running RTEMS
     (2) Acromag PCIe IP Carrier, running Linux
     (3) Hytec uTCA IP Carrier, running Linux
     (4) There are also other combinations.

What we have done at SLAC in the past is to use the provided RTEMS version of the source file for "tyGSOctal"  like so,
< ....>/modules/ipac/ipac-R2-11_1-2/tyGSOctal/tyGSOctal_RTEMS.c


I am hoping that we can instead make this an OSI implementation for IP520?
What is the recommended approach for future IP Octal support?

Cheers,
Ernest
