The CPC Development Kit for Windows offers support to develop own applications for EMS Dr. Thomas Wünsche CAN and CAN FD interfaces. For new designs it is recommended to use WDK 06.xx as it supports both classic CAN and CAN FD. It includes device drivers and a library, whose API forms the software interface to the application. Due to the fact, that this API is device independent an application can communicate with all supported interfaces. Easy source code examples facilitate starting. The common API between Linux and Windows guarantees easy portability. No royalties will arise while distributing the application in binary form due to the company bound cost free, development license model.

The WDK 06.xx supports CAN FD and classic CAN applications in contrast to the legacy WDK 05.xx, which only supports classic CAN applications. This is also relevant for the proCANtool CAN‑Monitor, which is part of the mentioned WDK versions.  Naturally a CAN FD device like CPC-USB/FD is neccessary for CAN FD communication.

EMS Dr. Thomas Wünsche CAN FD drivers are backward compatible to work with classic CAN interfaces e.g. CPC-USB/ARM7.
