We've released python libraries to make it lighting fast to start automating test and development tasks with a Binho Multi-Protocol USB Host Adapter. The packaged releases contains two libraries:
This library is essentially a wrapper for all of the commands presented in the ASCII Command Set documentation. The library is written in such a way to support multiple devices as well as properly handling INTERRUPTS by making use of threads.
This library provides a handful of functions which aid in device management, as in identifying COM ports and Binho devices attached to the host computer.
Here's where the releases live:
And here's the source code repository:
The officially-supported Python library can easily be installed using pip:
pip install binho-host-adapter
This library is cross-platform and is intended for use with Python 3.x.
from binhoHostAdapter import binhoHostAdapterfrom binhoHostAdapter import binhoUtilitiesprint("Demo Script with Binho Host Adapter Python Libraries")utilities = binhoUtilities.binhoUtilities()devices = utilities.listAvailableDevices()if len(devices) == 0:print("No Devices Found!")exit()elif len(devices) == 1:COMPORT = devicesprint("Found 1 attached adapter @ " + devices)else:COMPORT = devicesprint("Found more than 1 attached adapter, using first device found on " + COMPORT)print("Opening " + COMPORT + "...")# create the binhoHostAdapter objectbinho = binhoHostAdapter.binhoHostAdapter(COMPORT)print("Connecting to host adapter...")print(binho.getDeviceID())
There are also many examples of the python libraries in action in the examples section of the support portal:
The library contains two classes, each with a distinct purpose. Please see the following pages for the documentation on each of these classes:
