Lantronix, Inc has announced an enhanced Software Development Kit (SDK) for its 32-bit MatchPort products, providing an easy-to-use development environment for creating custom, powerful applications for Lantronix’ products. This release layers upon the company’s MatchPort AR SDK released in March, by incorporating wireless support for its secure, embedded wireless networking module, MatchPort b/g Pro. The SDK allows customers to seamlessly add wired and wireless network connectivity into devices, making them accessible and manageable via the Internet.
The new MatchPort SDK adds comprehensive support for 802.11 technology, including the ability to monitor the status, signal strength and connection type of existing wireless local area networks (WLANs). It also features active scanning for available access points and the capability to configure multiple WLAN profiles. Ideal for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and systems designers, this new SDK further accelerates a product’s time to market.

“We’ve seen a high demand from our customers for a versatile development environment using well-known tools, enabling them to quickly create innovative solutions,” said Daryl Miller, Vice President of Engineering at Lantronix. “Lantronix has committed several years of development in this area so our customers don’t have to invest in added resources. The addition of this robust SDK provides us yet another way to empower our customers to bring state-of-the-art wired and wireless products to market.”

In addition, the SDK grants access to the Evolution application programming interface (API), which allows developers to customise and enhance the Lantronix’ Evolution operating system (OS) for their applications. Evolution OS is Lantronix’ Network Operating System for device servers that incorporates open standards, extensible technologies and enterprise-grade networking security. CodeSourcery’s Sourcery G++, a complete GNU-based development ecosystem and a trial version of the Eclipse-based IDE (integrated developer environment) are also included in the kit. The integration of these advanced programming tools with the SDK, offers developers a flexible, inexpensive and sophisticated way to create applications for MatchPort b/g Pro and MatchPort AR.
