When developers want to write an application that involves hardware access, they have to study the specifications to write the drivers. This is a time-consuming job and requires lots of expertise. Advantech has done all the hard work for our customers with the release of a suite of Software APIs, Application Programming Interfaces, which is a Bridge to Simplify & Enhance H/W & Application Implementation Efficiency. Nowadays, Advantech provide our sample application demos, HW drivers and APIs. The drivers which are keeping in maintain included Secured & Unified Smart Interface (SUSI) 4.0, 3.02 and iManager 2.0. Only SUSI4 driver is on developing, so we recommend SUSI4 to new customers.
Drivers of APIs
Advantech's EC platforms come equipped with iManager, a micro controller that provides embedded features for system integrators. Embedded features have been moved from the OS/BIOS level to the board level, to increase reliability and simplify integration.
SUSI 3.02 provides not only the underlying drivers required but also a rich set of user-friendly, intelligent and integrated interfaces, which speeds development, enhances security and offers add-on value for Advantech platforms. SUSI plays the role of catalyst between developer and solution, and makes Advantech embedded platforms easier and simpler to adopt and operate with customer applications.
SUSI 4.0 driver supports include not only newer SUSI 4.0 APIs, but also the APIs of SUSI 3.02 and iManager 2.0. Therefore, the old customers, who bought SUSI 3.02 or iManager 2.0 before, can install SUSI 4.0 driver with no effort. Customers will enjoy better performance which is SUSI 4.0 driver carries out.
Installation on Linux
