LINUX is now established as a very stable operating system especially for the x86 PC hardware and is winning over enthusiastic adherents in many application areas. Especially customers developing their own applications like LINUX for its performance and stability and free compile- and debugging tools.
We therefore support now with this new LINUX software interface especially those customers who want to use our boards of the P788x family on the x86 LINUX platform and adapt it to their own customer-specific applications.
The kernel device driver module supports up to three modules connected to one computer. A ready-to-use library module with source code provides direct access to the hardware and all board capabilities. The software interface is clearly structured and defined in one header file. A short console sample program with source code shows how to use the library. It contains a simple command interpreter, can be immediately used for actual measurements and easily expanded for own applications.
This manual describes in detail how to use the software interface.
The MPANT Windows software runs fine in demo mode under the Wine emulator and can be used to view spectra data and evaluate listfiles written with the test software.
