This package puts the company's DAPstudio software together with its DAP 840 board. The board includes a second processor running DAPL, a real-time operating system controllable by Windows, and DAPstudio allows users to develop applications and run them, either from a PC or a network, without any other software. An optional Developer's Toolkit allows users rewrite any sequence of DAPL commands in C or C++, and DAPstudio, or any other DLL-using Windows-based application, can then run these custom commands along with built-in DAPL commands. OEM package prices range downwards from $1,200 per unit, and unrestricted versions of both hardware and software are available for evaluation at no charge.
