present any stream of data in convenient way for terminal programs interfaces etc.
- By the way, the overwhelming majority of mobile devices have COM interface as basic, that's why programs for them are oriented for support of COM-interface. If using any other interface it's favorably to create virtual com-ports and redirect data stream to them.
What needs does COM API meet?
Essentially reduces development efforts for creation of applications with virtual ports interaction
Allows creating systems with legacy components which could transfer data only to serial port
Allows taking serial stream and converting data
using any other protocol. In what situations COM API can be used?
When it is needed to create and control virtual com-ports without writing system components
To add support of virtual serial ports to your own application
If you have the software, which works with some device connected to COM port and you want to capture all the data that goes to and from the port. Just create one virtual port and command the application to use it. Now you can monitor all data that application writes to the port and redirects it to the real COM port. And vice versa, you monitor all data coming from the device and redirect it to the virtual port
If you want to create virtual connection between virtual com ports on null modem principle
To emulate physical devices presence
To implement serial data stream convertation
To encapsulate your protocol into serial
To insert any data into serial stream
To represent your data stream as serial
To present any stream of data in a convenient way for terminal programs interfaces
If it is needed to obtain data from virtual com-ports in order then it could be transferred to other application or network.
Why is it worth to use COM API?
Because COM API can be characterized as such that can:
Agree, that is really the most valuable feature list.
Because we created flexible interface - COM API supplies as dll and as com object, so you
Support team is always ready to assist and provide consulting. What do I need to use COM API?
Basic knowledge in programming
1,75 M spare space on the disc
Administrator rights for drivers installation
Windows 2000, XP
Just run the demo, set path to folder with drivers and press "Install".
Is it secure? - Absolutely
Strong error recovery mechanics which prevents buffer overflows and DoS attacks
COM API isn't connected with the network, so it makes strong security advantage and no dangers at all
Hardware is emulated on kernel level, which is unreachable for known spyware and malware so no risks of affecting normal
functioning of the software.
Is it easy-to-use? - Absolutely
User friendly Help files
Detailed documentation with full descriptions
of every function, call or used structure.
