Our C# SDK is for projects that will be developed in a .NET environment. Projects developed with this SDK will target Windows, or use the Universal Windows Platform (UWP).

If you are looking for a C++ or Java SDK (for a non-.NET environment, on Windows, Mac, or Linux), either go to the products home page on Knowledge Base or click the following link,


We usually deliver this SDK in a Zip file built for a specific product (like the Augusta reader). We call this Zip file an SDK Package. You can find the product-specific SDK packages on each product's "home page" here in ID TECH's Knowledge Base.  By supporting one API across all products, the Universal SDK allows a developer to work with all of our featured products in a common way. So a project built for an Augusta will require little to no modification to work, also, with a VP3300.

Each SDK package includes:

  1. Libraries - DLLs for Microsoft .NET 4.0 or greater.  One or more of the following libraries will be referenced by the project:

    1. WinForms 

      1. Augusta_config.dll

  1. fyi - in regard to the Simple Demo (Augusta), while all of the required DLLs are included, the Solution in the ZIP file is not set up completely.  IDTech.DLL needs to be manually added as a Reference to the VS2017 project.
