FDI device packages make it easier for automation suppliers to develop and integrate intelligent devices, because suppliers only need to create a single, unified package for each intelligent device that can work with all host systems and tools. This reduces overall development costs, while preserving and expanding existing functionality. FDI Tools are available for FOUNDATION Fieldbus or HART protocols.
There are two tools available for developers looking to implement FDI in their devices and systems. Additionally, regardless of whether you plan to develop a Host or a Field Device, you will need a copy of the FDI Technical Specifications.
