CAN Development Kit for Windows offer needed support for developers of own applications for the PC/CAN interface CPC family. They include the device driver for the interface and a library, whose API forms the software interface to the application. Due to the fact that this interface is device independent an application can communicate with all interfaces supported by a device driver. Easy source code examples facilitate starting. The common API between Linux and Windows guarantee an easy portability. No royalties will arise while distributing the application in binary form due to the company bound cost free, development license model.Drivers contained in WDK 05.10 or older do not support CAN FD products like CPC-USB/FD.EMS Dr. Thomas Wünsche CAN FD drivers have been designed to work with classic CAN Interfaces. Therefore CAN interfaces like CPC-USB/ARM7 are supported by drivers of WRK 06.00 or newer. This is also relevant for the proCANtool CAN‑Monitor, which is part of the mentioned WRK versions.For Linux we recommend to use our Linux Development Kit (CDLK), which has been designed to offer necessary support for this operating system.
