The FDI Package IDE makes writing, running and testing of FDI Device Packages easier and more efficient by providing the complete tool chain you need for FOUNDATION Fieldbus, HART, PROFIBUS and PROFINET devices in one application.
The IDE supports EDD editing and tokenizing into one encoded file format. The encoded EDD, the UIP (developed using Visual Studio), and the attachments are combined to form an FDI Package by the FDI Package IDE. The Reference Runtime Environment runs the FDI Packages for test and debugging. The Device Package Test Tool performs automated conformance testing of FDI Packages.
The FDI Package that a device manufacturer creates in this manner are registered by FieldComm Group and PROFIBUS & PROFINET International, together with the respective device hardware.
