AltaAPI - No TitleWhen first starting development, the design engineer may want a Linux or Windows application for test verification. Then the application may need to move to an RTOS, such as VxWorks, for deployment. Or maybe the test group needs to develop a LabVIEW or .NET GUI for ATP or a custom application – even a network based application. The AltaAPI can migrate as your program requirements change.
