Evergreen Research, Inc. is a medical device developer. Many products developed over the past 10 years use

Evergreen Research, Inc. is a medical device developer. Many products developed over the past 10 years use an embedded PC to control physical end effectors, like motors, solenoids, pumps, pressure transducers, load cells, etc. The PC uses serial lines, sometimes a single RS-485, sometimes a group of RS-232s, to communicate with embedded controllers, like 80C51s or 68HC12s. The embedded controllers operate the end effectors. Evergreen has developed a light-weight serial protocol that standardizes and validates the serial communications without imposing a high overhead.

Some of the products using our technology

  1. Pharmacy compounder that mixes IV solutions for intravenous feeding.
  2. Heart-lung machine used during cardiac bypass surgery.
  3. Syringe filling machine.
  4. Production tester for electrosurgical generators.
  5. IV bag weighing scale.
  6. Whole-body cooler for acute treatment of stroke.
  7. Bearing monitor for large industrial pumps.

 

Evergreen purchased and installed both the Windows and Linux versions of SerialPort. It installated without a hitch, and works great. I wish all of the software products purchased were as good as yours. Thanks for a great product!

I wanted to take the time to thank you for the wonderful software

I wanted to take the time to thank you for the wonderful software package you provide. The installation was trivial and it just plain worked. It's a beautiful thing. I wanted to complement your engineers and doc writers for a tremendous job. Great going and keep up the fantastic work! I can't begin to tell you how much time and headache your software will save me.

"We have used Serial

"We have used SerialPort in our disk drive manufacturing facilities since the year 2000 and it has performed without a single error in the manufacturing of over 2 BILLION hard disk drives and counting - year of this report is 2010".

Our Java application requires communication with em

Our Java application requires communication with embedded devices using a serial connection. We were using the open-source RxTx package but we had stability issues with RxTX. We decided to use SerialPort and our application now works like a charm. Took 30 minutes to replaces RxTx implementation in our code and now everything runs as expected: concurrent access to multiple com ports now works just fine. I love nice little products like SerialPort!

"We develop an application called Energy Station which downloads

"We develop an application called Energy Station which downloads and analyses electricity consumption data from a Current Cost device and helps people to understand how they use electricity around the home and how they can reduce waste and save money. The Current Cost device connects to the PC using a serial to USB cable. During testing we found that the Prolific driver was causing bluescreen problems on Windows Vista. We tested several alternatives and found the Serialio.com driver to be the most stable. We recommend the Serialio.com driver for use with Techtoniq Energy Station and the Current Cost Device"

Kudos to your development team for the ease of use of the Serialio product. The sample applications supplied with the software have been more than sufficient in aiding the development of our serial-based application designed for laboratory use. We were sending bytes to the port and receiving responses within a matter of minutes upon purchasing and downloading your serialio classes. The nominal product fee paid for itself in the first day.

SerialPort has saved me tons of time over the years. Your interface is very concise, straightforward, easy to use and very easy to deploy. SerialPort has been used in-house to deploy data acquisition for a custom wireless network implemented with UHF radio. In addition, we use it in-house for our transponder programming. Deployed at run-time, SerialPort is remarkably fast. I never have to worry if the serial code will keep up with the rest of the app. In fact, most of the time it's the other way around!

I found the SerialIO.com site via the Apple Developer Connection.  I knew it had to be a good outfit if Apple was willing to suggest them as a source.   I purchased the SerialIO SerialPort Java package and it worked right out of the 'box'.  Then, a month later, I ran into a problem which coincided with my purchase/use of a MacPro after my G5 konked out.  Sadly, things did not work on this Intel-based machine.  I was concerned about OS/Java hassles - and wrote to SerialIO support.   Shortly thereafter I got eMail support which helped me isolate the problem and determined I was trying to work with a file that had become corrupted. Thanks to the rapid response from SerialIO support I was able to get back to doing useful work - despite the self-inflicted gunshot wound to my foot.  Here's a collective word out of "You deh Mann!" to SerialIO Support.

Some months ago, I was creating a Windows-based controller to manage a modem bank using Java. After initially trying serial drivers from RxTxComm, IBM and Sun each with various problems in stability and operational behavior, I purchased serialio.com's SerialPort package.

I was immensely pleased when the package went in seamlessly with no coding changes (using the javax.comm.SerialPort layer), and more so that it has been working reliably ever since.

The original goal was to control up to 16 modems on a mid-level (circa 2003) system, thanks in part to SerialPort's implementation, the final product is confidently estimated to support at least 128 and as many as 256 modems, concurrently streaming data at up to 56Kbps. 

I should have bought SerialPort at the outset, and saved myself considerable time and frustration.  My future Java projects that require serial I/O will definitely use SerialPort.

My company purchased your serialio, modem and ZModem java products for the Win32 platform a little over a year ago. We implemented them in our production environment, communicating with 5 different sites multiple times each day and have been extremely pleased with their performance.

We've got the Serialio Java class working in "record breaking time", i.e. it took an amazing 5 minutes to get our Java application to send bytes through the serial port.
