Python interface to the Erma SSI1417 card.

Project description


This project aims to be a a python wrapper for the Erma SSI1417 card. This card is a synchronous serial interface (SSI) card sold by Erma Electronic GmbH, Germany. Together with this card Erma provides a DLL (ERMA_SSI.DLL) to access the interface from within your own programs through a simple API. This package uses SWIG to wrap the API to python.

The version number of this package equals the version number of the target DLL. Currently this is version of the ERMA_SSI.DLL.


The driver is currently only provided for Windows. Hence, this python package works only on windows too.
