Kontron Embedded Application Programming Interface: Unified middleware for simplified access and control of hardware resources

by donpedro

Kontron is premiering its new cross-platform middleware, Kontron Embedded Application Programming Interface (Kontron EAPI), at this year’s SPS/IPC/DRIVES fair in Nuremberg, Germany. With this launch, Kontron has standardized the access and control of hardware resources for embedded applications. Application developers will 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. The first products to be fitted with the new Kontron EAPI are the Kontron embedded motherboard KTQ45, the Kontron COM Express Computer-on-Module nanoETXexpress-SP and Kontron’s MICROSPACE MPCX line of industrial PCs.
All new platforms to be launched after this announcement will also be supported.
