CMC DC-Power Core is an add-on to the CMC Driver Framework. It provides the DC-Power API and the generic DC-Power Simulator. If you plan on using the CMC Driver Framework to program DC power supplies, you will require CMC DC-Power Core.
The DC-Power API is the programming API used to program for DC-Power supplies with the CMC Driver Framework. The API covers the full set of functions supported by CMC DC-Power drivers. If your power supply does not support a specific function, the API will return a warning.
CMC DC-Power Core includes a generic DC-Power Simulator that enables you to program with the DC-Power API without having access to any hardware. Once your code is tested with the DC-Power Simulator, simply install a CMC DC-Power driver, such as the CMC DC-Power Genesys Driver, apply your new configuration, and you will be up and running with your hardware.
