New Tool: Kithara »USB Toolkit«

Kithara »USB Toolkit«

The USB Toolkit« provides all important functional mechanisms for the development of USB device drivers.

By using the comprehensive and easy-to-use API, access from the ordinary programming environment to the hardware components is possible as if a real device driver was developed with huge effort.

The »USB Toolkit« is a tool, which provides the convenient development of USB drivers for Windows. It is also possible to develop drivers for external USB hardware, without the extensive training of complex kernel programming. A generic WDM driver is included.

The »USB Toolkit« supports the communication of USB devices with multiple interfaces or configurations via USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 at application or kernel level. The reaction to all plug & play as well as power management events and also to receiving data at kernel level is possible. Arbitrary device names for virtual interfaces can be used.

All current Windows OS, including Windows 7 (32 or 64 bit) are supported. Programming languages like C/C++, Delphi or C# are directly supported and the developers can work in their ordinary programming environment during the entire development. The »USB Toolkit« provides a generic driver, which enables developers to directly communicate with USB devices.
