What is the api and how is it used?

Postby supwiddiss » Tue Oct 17, 2017 4:59 am

Anybody? I breezed through the pdf and nothing of its usage in an application was mentioned.
The dll makes sdr# 1361 see the radio and allows front end configuration. But the api?
Oh yeah boys. Still waiting for a frequency range scanner plugin for your downloadable sw . What good is a dc to daylight receiver w/o one?

The API is what enables communication to the hardware and delivers the IQ data to applications. All applications use the API, whether it's directly as in SDRuno or indirectly through ExtIO plugin for HDSDR.

We publish the API interface so that anyone can create their own applications with it. You don't need to know anything about the API if you just want to use existing software with the RSP.

There is example code in the back of the API and we also have a github with an example of how the API can be used (https://github.com/SDRplay/examples)

Hope that helps,

Best regards,

SDRplay Support
