2022-12-16 • New .NET assembly released in the NuGet Gallery

Our programming interface PCAN-Basic for connecting own programs under Windows and Linux to CAN buses can now also be comfortably used in a .NET development environment. For this purpose we provide the PCAN-Basic.NET Assembly for free.

With PCAN-Basic.NET it is possible to create applications for different .NET environments like .NET Core or .NET Framework. .NET Core is also applicable under Linux. The Assembly provides new classes for improved handling of the most important CAN operations, e.g. enhanced filtering and periodic transmission of CAN messages. A compatibility mode ensures the integration or porting of earlier .NET projects.

For easy integration into Microsoft development environments, PCAN-Basic.NET is available as a package in the NuGet Gallery on the web. NuGet is Microsoft's package manager for .NET.

Note that the underlying library file of PCAN-Basic (PCANBasic.dll under Windows, libpcanbasic.so under Linux) is not part of the PCAN-Basic.NET Assembly and must be installed separately. Under Windows, for example, with the device driver setup of our CAN interfaces.
