WinDriver USB for Linux automates and simplifies the development of user mode Linux device drivers and hardware control applications for USB peripheral devices. No Linux kernel knowledge or kernel level programming is required. Including powerful tools for hardware diagnostics, automatic driver code generation, and driver debugging, as well as intuitive hardware access API, it provides a complete solution for creating high performance drivers and custom hardware access applications, thereby enabling you to focus on your driver's added-value functionality, instead of on your operating system internals.

Release Notes: Support for Linux kernel 2.4.20 was added. Installation problems (which occurred since v6.00) on multi-processor (SMP) Linux systems were resolved. Linux Scatter/Gather DMA was improved to correctly handle HIGHMEM support. A previous crash in the case of repeated allocations of small Contiguous DMA buffers with WD_DMALock() calls was resolved. Problems related to simultaneous usage of WinDriver v6.0X and WinDriver v5.22 or lower on the same PC were resolved.
