PLIN-API Version History

2020-12-03 - Version 2.8.0


  • Added new client parameters clpLogStatus and clpLogConfiguration for the functions LIN_SetClientParam and LIN_SetGetParam, to set up the new logging functionality
  • Like the PCAN-Basic API, the new logging function can also be activated via the Windows Registry
  • Added new hardware parameters hwpScheduleActive, hwpScheduleState and hwpScheduleSuspendedSlot for the function LIN_GetHardwareParam
  • The error codes relating to the schedule table functions have been revised

Bug fixes:

  • The LIN_RegisterClient function did not recognize the maximum number of clients and always returned a handle 1 if 255 clients were already created. In this case the function now returns errOutOfResource

  • Added new function LIN_XmtDynamicWakeUp, to set a dynamic delay for wake-up message sending

Bug fixes:

  • Reception queue of LIN clients had no limit which could cause memory depletion problems if an application is connected but never read its queue; the limit was set to a maximum of 65535 messages
  • Some compatibility problems solved
  • Wrong error was being returned on LIN_Write when a transmit queue overrun occurred; the error ErrorUnknown was being returned instead of TransmitQueueFull
  • Plugging-in a device was causing the service to crash if the language of the operating system was Turkish or Azerbaijani (Latin and Cyrillic)


  • The function LIN_GetVersionInfo was modified to additionally return driver version information
