PassThru API and C#

Post by PeterFarkas » Wed 11. Nov 2015, 20:17


We have bought a PCAN-USB recently and I have no idea if I can use the PCAN-PassThru API with this device. Is it possible to use the API's dll in a C# application? If so, how can I do this? I couldn't find to much documentation/samples on this topic.

With the programming interface PCAN-PassThru API, we publish an implementation of this standard for Windows. Once installed, applications that are based on Pass-Thru can be employed with PC CAN interfaces from PEAK-System.

All needed Information to build your own API based on the Interface is part of the SAE Specification, and non public. Please contact the SAE and get the J2534 documentation. SAE Our API support the CAN ISO 15765-4 part of the PassThru specification (CAN only)
