austriamicrosystems AG has announced the offering of a free software development kit (SDK) for its magnetic rotary encoder IC family. The company said this easy-to-use product will help users develop customized software quickly and easily for applications developed with their magnetic rotary encoder ICs.

The SDK is based on a dynamic link library that can be embedded in many software platforms, including Microsoft Visual Studio (C#, C/C++, Visual Basic), Borland C++ Builder or LabView. In addition, said austriamicro, a number of application examples and help files make the SDK very user friendly.

"This powerful tool will enable [our customers] to visualize the functions of their AS5000-based magnetic rotary encoder ICs in a very simple way and thus develop application software within the shortest time," said Josef Janisch, product manager for magnetic rotary encoder products at austriamicro. "Now, the design engineer has no need to worry about protocols and communication between the product and his development environment."

The software development kit supports the company's entire magnetic encoder IC family, which contactlessly sense rotary positions via a small rotating magnet.

The kit can be downloaded for free from the austriamicrosystems website.
