The cifX Toolkit is a standard component for accessing the Hilscher DPM used on COMX/CIFX and other netX based devices.
It can be used to write own device drivers or used on microcontrollers to interface a Hilscher module.

The cifX/netX Toolkit consists of C-source and header files allowing abstract access to the dual-port memory (DPM) defined by Hilscher for cifX and comX devices and netX based components.
It also contains the user interface functions (CIFX API) as well as generic access functions needed to handle the Hilscher DPM.
