Deprecated Platforms

We periodically reasses our support requirements and may discontinue support for platforms which are no longer in demand or do not provide necessary features.  See Tech Note 0019 for a list of deprecated platforms.

Additional Platforms

DEI will consider porting MTP/IP software to other environments that support UDP/IP networking.  The most suitable targets are POSIX environments capable of running Clang 3.4.2 or later.  A minimum purchase or additional fees may be required.  Please contact us if you would like to request or suggest support for additional platforms.
