.net DLL which uses information provided by Windows drivers to find connected devices from Drive Test, which use a FTDI Serial-to-USB Converter
This .net DLL is meant to facilitate finding and identifying devices by Drive Test, which communicate over a virtual COM-Port. Momentarily only Devices using a FTDI chip, will be recognised.
This .DLL does not include methods to communicate with the devices. For this purpose use the dedicated libraries:
Currently the following devices by Drive Test incorporate a FTDI chip:
The DLL provides a method to find all connected USB Devices. For connected USB devices using a FTDI chip, it tries to determine a serial number and the COM-Port the device is using.
A class/struct holding information for a device connected over USB. For devices from Drive Test using a FTDI Chip it has some extra information for direct identification and the current COM-Port. If this extra information is not available, an empty string is added.
This function triggers a refresh of the list with connected devices. There are two versions available: If no filters should be used, the version without input parameters can be used. For filtering the device list, the function with input parameters could be used.
Parameter 1: Boolean “onlyFTDI”
If set to true, the list will contain only devices which report the vendor id(VID) from FTDI
Parameter 2: String “filterBusDescription”
If the size of this array is greater than one, the list will contain only devices, whose “Bus Description” exactly match one of the provided strings.
Example for a call filtering for SE3 devices:
DeviceFinder finder = new DeviceFinder(); String filterStrings = new String; filterStrings = "DriveTest SE3"; finder.FindDevices(true,filterStrings);
Fires when the list of Devices is updated
