This page contains the D2XX drivers currently available for CP devices.

D2XX drivers allow direct access to the USB device through a DLL. Application software can access the USB device through a series of DLL function calls. The functions available are listed in the D2XX Programmer's Guide document which is available from the Documents section of this site.
Programming examples using the D2XX drivers and DLL can be found in the Projects section of this site.
