Raspberry Pi 3 and CoDeSys

Tue Apr 26, 2016 11:50 am

Dear,

Is the latest linux image from Codesys compatible with
Raspberry Pi 3?
At Codesys web it only lists RPi model 2.
Has anyone tested?

Best Regards
Magnus

If the release date of the image is before the release date of Raspberry Pi 3, i think we safely can say that it is NOT bootable out of the box on a Raspberry Pi 3.

Have you asked Codesys (whoever they are)?

It's just about guaranteed that any downloadable Linux image will be built for X86_64 or X86 unless it specifically tells you otherwise.

Oh, Dougie, read the OP. They have specifically told us otherwise.

Then they need to give links, there's nothing like that, that I found on the official CodeSys site. Go and ask the folks who make this stuff.

It may be possible to rpi-update an image to make it boot on an RPi3.

Thanks for information,

I will try and see how the installer handles the
RPI hardware.
I should have mentioned that CoDeSys have software
for real time control, ie. PLC Control.
With the CoDeSys for RPI you will have real time kernel
for running logic and connecting to different hardware
through supported "buses"; EtherCat, Can, Modbus etc.

More information store.codesys.com

Again,

My initial question was badly expressed.
CoDeSys don't ship an image. They ship
a Control application for RPI.

Then there's a good chance that it will work on a Pi3
I had a quick look at one of the docs and at least they're using 'modern' methods for configuration of the GPIO (read: Device Tree).

The first hit I get by googling "codesys raspberry" is: http://store.codesys.com/codesys-contro ... pi-sl.html.

There is talk on that page of Raspbian, so yeah, it appears to be an application that runs on top of the normally expected operating system. It's still possible that the program does things that make it not portable to the latest versions of Raspbian, or to Pi3 hardware, but that's moderately unlikely. The actual "will it work on a Pi3" question can only be answered by CoDeSys, or someone who has already run it there. You could download it and try it before buying a license.
