# <a name="Overview"></a> Overview [![Foo](yasdi-pkg.png)](yasdi-pkg.png) The software **YASDI** from SMA is suitable for the development of individual applications for the communication with SMA products. YASDI is an implementation of the **"SMA Data 1"** Protocols, through which our inverters communicate with other SMA devices. It is available as an archive and spares you implementing the protocols yourself. The software exists entirely in source code and was developed in the programming language "C". It has been designed to allow quick and easy porting to other operating systems. * For the following Systems: **Linux 32/64 bit**, **Solaris**, **Windows32**, **WindowsCE**, **MacOSX**, **RTKernel32**, **(AmigaOS, .... )** * Communication via **RS232**, **RS485** and **Powerline** * Supports momentary values of devices * Supports changes to device parameters * Easy to port to other platforms * Licence **LGPL** **Please note** * Before you can download YASDI you must accept the Licence Agreement. * The readout of recorded data of a Sunny Boy Control or Sunny Beam is unfortunately not possible (not implemented). * Bluetooth communication with **SMA Data 2 Plus** is not implemented. * Unfortunately SMA can offer no support for parts of this software. * * * # <a name="Download"></a> Download Please note that SMA offer no support for parts of the Software.
