Diagnostics and flash programming often have to be integrated into existing applications. It is often the case that a diagnostic application is to be created by a known partner. In these cases, hardware and software have to be integrated – via programming interfaces (API) that can do the job properly. Standards facilitate this implementation of course because the integrator can reuse his results.
Softing has various programming interfaces on offer which accompany its hardware interfaces for all kinds of applications. The APIs differ particularly in terms of complexity, convenience of access, real-time behavior and long-term availability.
