» Kontron EAPI «
The Kontron Embedded Application Programming Interface is a unified middleware for simplified access and control of hardware resources for embedded applications. Application developers benefit from a rich and sophisticated library of API functions for getting information from all new Kontron embedded computing platforms. Kontron EAPI is compliant to the PICMG®’s EAPI but independent of form factors and operating systems and offers an extended feature set. It helps to minimize OEMs’ development work and the time spent on initial designs up to cross-platform migrations, including validation and verification. It enables remote monitoring and control functionalities, resulting in improved service, easier maintenance and a lower total cost of ownership.
Developers will find an identical set of function calls for dedicated tasks. The software interfaces to the hardware can be easily linked to any higher programming language like C++ or Java. This makes software and application development a much simpler job. Moreover, developers can utilize the knowledge that has gone into creating the solution, even when migrating to another Kontron platform. This ensures the best time to market as well as reducing the amount of work needed for validation and verification.
