With a set of four tools (command line interface based DPI-CLI; a simple, fixed-format graphical user interface DPI-GUI for modules and Bus Converters and CPGUI for the CP family products and the full-featured, multi-window ProGUI), the user has a range of user interfaces to match their development and testing needs. The table below provides a quick summary of the features and capabilities of the four tools.
