Comedi project develops open-source drivers, libraries, and tools for data acquisition.
Comedi is a collection of drivers for a variety of common data acquisition plug-in boards. The drivers are implemented as a core Linux kernel module providing common functionality and individual low-level driver modules.
Comedilib is a user-space library that provides a developer-friendly interface to Comedi devices. Included in the Comedilib distribution is documentation, configuration and calibration utilities, and demonstration programs.
Kcomedilib is a Linux kernel module (distributed with Comedi) that provides the same interface as Comedilib in kernel space, suitable for real-time tasks. It is effectively a "kernel library" for using Comedi from real-time tasks.
Here are some key features of "Comedi":
· Integrated real-time support for most hardware
· High-level library (comedilib)
· Application-level device independence
· Works with Linux 2.0, 2.2, 2.4, 2.6 kernels
What's New in This Release:
· Various minor bugfixes and code cleanups, an update to the latest kernel, fixes for driver compile-time bugs, and fixed device IDs.
