With the SuperCom Data Communication Library transmitting and receiving data takes place in the background enabling the application to perform other tasks while serial data transmission takes place.
Setup and handle concurrently multiple connections, run lengthly jobs in background (for example: connect, file transfer, collect data packets, trigger events), execute fast with low latency and consume less CPU time is what SuperCom was made for from it's first day.
Stable and fast file transfers in backgound are just one function call away using well known ZMODEM, YMODEM, XMODEM, KERMIT, ASCII.
Need industrial access like MODBUS, S7, Heidenhain? We ship a very robust industry proven software packages used for many years in industrial projects.
SuperCom is not only well known for it's unmatched stability but also for its portability. Use one SuperCom API to compile Linux and Windows programs.
Many more details incl. common code snippets presented here.
The SuperCom Serial Communication Library for Linux is a programmer's library used to develop serial communication applications under Linux and compatible operating systems.
Using SuperCom you easily write serial communication applications and control serial ports, Modem, Barcode Scanner, Scales, PLC, GPS receiver, POS, serial medical devices, serial printer etc.
Develop easily applications to accomplish serial data and file transfer incl. file server applications.
The SuperCom API fits excellent into the modularity concept of Linux and is extremely portable. SuperCom was designed from the beginning to be used in high demanding commercial and industrial applications.
Handle many concurrent and stable connections to serial ports e.g. RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485 (multidrop networks). Handle many different serial events as it happens. Handle special serial 9-bit data framing.
The SuperCom for TCP/IP enables data transmission in TCP/IP networks (Internet and Intranet).
The SuperCom for TCP/IP data communication library contains an optimized data communication engine responsible for simultaneous connections and event-controlled data communication.
The SuperCom data communication engine delivers maximum functionality but reduces the CPU load and consumption of resources. Therefore SuperCom for TCP/IP enables the development of high speed client / server applications with high data throughput.
Many more details including common pieces of code are presented here.
Executables developed using SuperCom can be distributed royalty free (complete text).
C, C++, C#, Java, Pascal, Lazarus, Perl, PureBasic and any other using Linux 'shared libraries, .so'.
Linux 2.4 or newer and also to it compatible OS (32/64 bit).
Available packages for Linux can be found here and here.
