The figure provides an overview and shows the system layers and the accompanying documentation.

 

Please select the type of application that you want to create. Then select the type of driver that you want to use.

Application

The application programm needs access to the cyclic I/O data. Configure the device using a configuration software e.g. SYCON.net.

The cifX API is the interface used by the application program. The manual contains a target and fieldbus independent programming interface to netX-based hardware running a standard Hilscher fieldbus protocol or firmware.

The application programm needs access to the cyclic I/O data and to status information of the device or network.

The cifX API is the interface used by the application program. The manual contains a target and fieldbus independent programming interface to netX-based hardware running a standard Hilscher fieldbus protocol or firmware.
The dual-port memory interface manual describes the structure, definitions and functions of the dual-port memory.

You can configure your slave device from you application program. The Protocol API manual describes the fieldbus-specific programming interface. There are several manuals, one for each protocol.

The application programm needs access to the cyclic I/O data and to status information of the device or network. Additionally, the application programm wants to use e.g. acyclic services, wants to do object handling or wants to configure the master device.

The cifX API is the interface used by the application program. The manual contains a target and fieldbus independent programming interface to netX-based hardware running a standard Hilscher fieldbus protocol or firmware.
The dual-port memory interface manual describes the structure, definitions and functions of the dual-port memory.

You can configure your slave device from you application program. The Protocol API manual describes the fieldbus-specific programming interface. There are several manuals, one for each protocol.

 

Driver

You are using a one of the following operating systems:

 

Windows

 

Linux

 

QNX

 

VxWorks

 

Windows CE

If you are using INtime or RTX:

 

INtime

 

RTX

You are using an approriate operating system or you want to access to the serial dual-port memory. Then you can use our driver toolkit for this purpose.

The cifX/netX Toolkit provides C-source and header files allowing abstract access to the dualport memory (DPM) defined by Hilscher for cifX and comX devices and netX-based components.

The cifX API is the interface used by the application program. The manual contains a target and fieldbus independent programming interface to netX-based hardware running a standard Hilscher fieldbus protocol or firmware.
