For the case of test equipments requiring data accuracy, real-time is highly required in acceptance test for performance evaluation of developed weapons. For convenience' sake, test equipments are usually developed using Windows. However Windows does not support real-time in itself. Thus, in this paper, so as to reduce development time and expenses, we design and implement an integrated middleware for real-time device drivers using RTiK-MP. Using DLL, we also support user API's for the sake of

We evaluate the performance of the proposed integrated middleware using the RDTSC command which returns the number of CPU clock ticks. The evaluation results show that it operates correctly within error ranges in the periods of 1ms and 4ms for the cases of TCP/IP and RS-232, respectively.
