Larson Davis Launches New SDK for Sound Level Meter Control with Support for Microsoft and Linux

February 27 2015, 03:00
Larson Davis, a division of PCB Piezotronics, announced an upgrade to the Larson Davis SLM Software Development Kit (SDK). With this new SDK, Larson Davis improves its open interface and expands support of acoustic engineers and consultants who need to develop custom applications or interface with other systems. The new SDK is available to support application development on Windows and Linux platforms and includes example code for Visual C#, Visual C++, HTML 5, and Javascript.

The SDK provides a single, high level API for full setup, control and download of data from supported sound level meters. This capability enables and simplifies software development needed for custom or proprietary applications. The data may be streamed using the supported languages and may be displayed in web pages to allow flexibility for display, communication, or accessibility.
As Ken Cox, Product Development Manager explains, “at Larson Davis we believe in providing our customers the open interface they need to control our sound level meters and access their data. That is why it was important to us to add compatibility with the Linux operating system and the web enabled interface to our SDK package. With the web based tools now available, our customers can open up a portal via the Internet and get access anytime and anywhere to their data.”
