Hello, 

unfortunately, support of this vendor is not in our plans for 2020. But we will consider it for future updates.

Best regards,

Michal

Dear Luca,

a general COM+ interface needed when designing a custom FreeMASTER communication plug-in is available in the FreeMASTER 3.0 installation in "FreeMASTER\userdev\include\mcbcom_i.idl" file. Unfortunately we do not provide a source code examples or any detailed guide how to create the plug-ins. So far, there were no interest from users to do so. 

I would recommend you to use one of supported CAN interfaces:

  • IXXAT: USB-to-CAN and other compatible devices.
  • Vector: VCAN and other compatible devices.
  • National Instruments: NI-CAN and other compatible devices.
  • Kvaser: Kvaser Leaf Pro HS v2 and other compatible devices.
  • PEAK-System: PCAN-USB and other PCANBasic compatible devices.
  • GLinker: USB-CAN GY8507 and other compatible devices.
  • ZLG: USBCAN-II and other compatible devices.
  • Intrepid Control Systems: ValueCAN and other compatible devices.

If it helps, we have also recently added a support for Viewtool Ginkgo USB-CAN interface. It is not officially released yet, but I can share a prototype with you.

We will consider adding the Lawicel device support by end of 2020.

Regards,

Michal
