Development for 4 Series Controllers

Software tools for our latest controllers

Overview


Software development for our hardware centers around various Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) paired with our open source software tool openSYDE. Our controller modules support a number of development languages and environments - with our latest series of controller primarily being developed for using openSYDE + logi.CAD with C or IEC Languages.
