The DGT Electronic Board DLL provides developers with an easy way to support the board and clock in windows applications. Besides this advantage, it is advisable to use the DLL for reasons of easy upgrading and after-market support.
The DLL uses the single board protocol and works with the Serial DGT Electronic Board and the new USB DGT Electronic Board.
Linux / MacOS developers:
Please take a look at the dgtnix project by Pierre Boulenguez at http://dgtnix.sourceforge.net/index.html
Also we have example code on our website. However at the moment this is not yet compiled under Linux or Mac OSX, although the used libraries are available for all platforms.
Take a look at the special download section for developers. There several examples and descriptions are posted.
