iSocket provides complete and optimum management of peripheral devices, freeing the application from this task and managing all critical device services. iSocket is a complete management layer, not just an API.
iSocket is used in applications requiring reliable, fault-tolerant device management. It provides a robust Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) for development of business critical solutions. This provides application developers with a coherent HAL for peripherals, removing device dependencies and allowing application portability and freedom of choice in device selection.
iSocket is designed to play a role in all aspects of the product lifecycle, from development to operational management:
Development: The iSocket-SDK is bundled with extensive utilities which allow developers to quickly connect peripheral devices and run test scripts to ensure device functionality. iSocket gets developers up and running quickly, significantly reducing time-to-market.
Manufacture: iSocket can be used together with automated test scripts to provide functional testing of a machine during build or QA. All machine functions can be fully tested/verified independently of the application.
Operation: iSocket manages all device communications and maintains a detailed log of critical transaction/event information for debug and audit purposes. iSocket significantly improves operational performance and reduces the risk of machine failure.
Here’s just some of the devices supported by iSocket:
iSocket is capable of adding support for almost any serial based peripheral or device, whether connected via a Smart Device Hub or via any standard system port. e2c is constantly adding new device types and support for customer specific devices. Let us know if you want anything new supported.
iSocket works with e2c’s range of Smart Hubs and IO boards, allowing iSocket to communicate with legacy devices and proprietary interfaces/protocols. These include our feature-packed Cash Control smart hubs and industry leading gaming reel controllers.
