What is API-TOOL

API-TOOL is a driver software for measurement control and communication, which support various device products (PC-HELPER series), such as PCI Express / PCI / ISA / PC Card. It is the driver software of development/run time as license free.

For Windows

  • It offers a command (API) in Win32 API function (DLL) form of Windows standard.
  • It prepares for a lot of sample programs that is made in Microsoft Visual Basic, Visual C/C++.
  • The diagnostic program is attached which is convenient for initial setting and operation check.
  • Attached the online help that is easy to use for API function reference.

For Linux

  • It offers a device driver in a module form and command(API) in a shared library form.
  • It prepares for a lot of sample programs which is made in gcc(Kylix is attached partly).
  • Attached the online help that is easy to use for API function reference.
