CID - Custom Interface Driver

When you buy a TOP Server CID Driver License you get all the TOP Server built-in features.

The TOP Server Custom Interface Driver allows you to quickly and easily add an external client interface to any custom developed application.  The CID driver is completely integrated into the TOP Server just like the large number of other drivers in the TOP Server family, which means your custom application gains the proven interoperability with most software applications in the automation industry that comes with TOP Server.

The CID driver can access any CID-compliant software solution implementing developer accepted Shared Memory Standards and Constructs.  Once accessed, TOP Server makes this data available to client applications through its wide range of client interfaces, including certified standards such as OPC and native interfaces such as Suitelink and NIO/PDB.

A software solution becomes CID-compliant when a developer adds functionality to that solution for creating a shared memory interface that is accessible by an external application - the TOP Server CID Driver.

Making your custom software solution CID-compliant couldn’t be easier, with the TOP Server CID driver installing with sample code (C++ and C#) to help you get started and using standard developer techniques.
