Developers

SDG Systems is pleased to be working with the open source community on mobile projects. We provide custom development services and answer questions through emails to support@sdgsystems.com. We look forward to working with you on various projects!

 

Android Development

General
Developers should target the Android 2.1 or Android 2.3 platform. Android, regardless of platform (Rampage, Nomad, BIP-6000, BM-170) is here:
http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html
 
Barcode Scanning
Barcode scanning for Nomad is impemented as a keyboard wedge. It is possible to disable the wedge and read data directly using the example code found here:
http://sdgsystems.net/android/nomad/Nomad_Android_2.1_Scanning.zip

Barcode scanning for BIP-6000 in Android 2.1 is implemented as a keyboard wedge, but can also be accessed using our Barcode Intents. Example code for accessing both the barcode scanner and RFID can be found here:

http://developer.sdgsystems.com/android/SDGScanDemo2.1.zip

Barcode scanning for BIP-6000 in Android 2.3 retains keyboard wedge functionality but adds a new SDG Scanning API. Documentation and example code for the API can be found here:
http://developer.sdgsystems.com/sdk/Barcode_API_Dev_Doc.pdf

RFID
On the BIP-6000 running Android 2.3 developers can read from RFID using the standard Android NFC package. More documentation about Android NFC can be found here:
http://developer.android.com/reference/android/nfc/package-summary.html
 
In order to use the NFC programming interface, disable the RFID keyboard wedge functionality in Settings > Data Collection. Developers can test reading a tag with a standard Android application that supports reading NFC tags. Some additional information can be found in the RFID section of the release notes.
 
ATID
The SDK for the ATID AT911 can be found here:

http://developer.sdgsystems.com/sdk/atid/AT911_SDK.zip

 

Windows and Windows Mobile Development

The Windows SDKs for Pidion devices (BIP-6000, BM-170, BI-500, etc.) are here:
http://developer.sdgsystems.com/sdk/bluebird/

The Windows SDKs for Trimble Nomad and Yuma Camera are here:
http://developer.sdgsystems.com/sdk/trimble/

The Windows SDKs for Catchwell CW20 and CW30 are here:
http://developer.sdgsystems.com/sdk/catchwell/

 

Linux Development

Please note that the Linux SDK folder has quick start guides to help with your development. Just look for the PDF files.


 

Our Android (AOSP) devices support RS232 serial connections using the android-serial-api code. You can find an example here.

We will periodically write articles to inform you of information that is useful to developers. Please bookmark this page or better yet -- use your newsfeed (RSS) reader to track our articles.
