Windows on ARM support for CAN and LIN interfaces
PEAK-System, German manufacturer of hardware and software for the CAN and LIN fieldbuses, now offers support for Windows on ARM.
Until now, the manufacturer's drivers, APIs, and software were built for Windows computers with x86 and x64-based processors. With Windows 11 it is possible to emulate x86 and x64 applications on ARM64-based computers. However, the emulation ends with the drivers.
PEAK-System has converted various drivers and services for ARM64. Especially the CAN and LIN device drivers for USB interfaces like the PCAN-USB are essential since the USB port is the primary available interface on ARM64-based computers.
In addition, the company has adapted software and programming interfaces for ARM64. With the APIs PCAN-Basic and PLIN-API, ARM applications can thus be enhanced with a connection to the CAN or LIN bus.
