STB Suite

Developer Toolbox API (DTB)

The world’s most widely used SCSI diagnostic software product is now available in a reference library.

The Developer Toolbox uses our proven interface to access SCSI, Fibre Channel, or ATAPI devices from Visual Basic or C++ running on 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows and Linux.

This library can be integrated into all popular test and process development environments such as Visual Basic or Visual C++.

Over 175 functions allow you to easily work with disk drives, tape drives, libraries, and any other SCSI/FC/ATAPI/SATA peripherals! With more tests and functions being added monthly, the Developer Toolbox is a solid and growing test development tool. In use at major manufacturers and integrators, the Developer Toolbox is the proven way to test peripheral storage devices FAST!

The Developer Toolbox also includes its own stand-alone development environment, Scriptwriter Pro. Scriptwriter Pro is a Visual Basic for Applications compatible development environment that includes a debugger/editor, an interpreter/compiler, and a GUI design tool. Complete OLE-aware stand alone applications with graphical user interface can be quickly created with this tool.
