Windows on ARM

2022-10-26 • PEAK Drivers, APIs, and Software for Windows 11 on ARM64 released

PEAK-System now offers support for Windows on ARM. Until now, our drivers, APIs, and software were built for Windows computers with x86 and x64-based processors. With Windows 11 it is possible to emulate x86 and x64 applications on ARM64-based computers. However, the emulation ends with the drivers.

We have converted various drivers and services for ARM64. Especially the CAN and LIN device drivers for USB interfaces like the PCAN-USB are essential, since the USB port is the primary available interface on ARM64-based computers. In addition, software and programming interfaces were also adapted for ARM64. With the APIs PCAN-Basic and PLIN-API, ARM applications can thus be enhanced with a connection to the CAN or LIN bus.

After a beta preview and extensive internal testing, we have released our device driver setup version 4.4 with Windows on ARM support. The setup includes:

  • Device drivers and services compiled for ARM64:
    • CAN device driver for USB interfaces
    • LIN device driver and service for USB interfaces
    • PCAN-Virtual driver for use with PCAN-Explorer
    • PCAN-LAN driver and Virtual PCAN-Gateway
  • APIs: PCAN-Basic, PLIN-API, and PCAN-RP1210 with interface DLLs for x86, x64, and ARM64
  • x86/x64 software: PCAN-View, PLIN-View Pro, and Virtual PCAN-Gateway configuration tool
  • ARM64 software: PEAK-Settings

Please note: With this release, we have discontinued support for Windows 10 (x86). For x86 systems, non-plug-and-play CAN interfaces, and Windows versions that are no longer supported, we provide the last working versions of our device drivers. Please note that these drivers are no longer maintained.
