The PDSDK COM kit provides a means for extending the functions of the M3T-PDxx and M3T-PDxxSIM debuggers. This kit may be used to create customized windows for the M3T-PDxx and M3T-PDxxSIM debuggers, and can be linked with other applications. The M3T-PDxx and M3T-PDxxSIM debuggers that support the PDSDK COM kit have a special interface, known as COMNote1, which can be invoked from an external application. The M3T-PDxx and M3T-PDxxSIM functions are called through this interface.
Note 1: COM stands for Component Object Model, which is a standard proposed by Microsoft Corporation to link the OS or applications.
