uDTM SDK Introduction

Utthunga offers uDTM SDK, a DTM development accelerator that integrates with Visual Studio and supports FDT specification 1.2 and 2.0. Our accelerators built over the years, are time and field-tested. To enable our customers to build products and services as per their custom requirements, the pre-built and pre-tested software application components seamlessly integrates with your software. Customers have benefitted from the significantly reduced time-to-market and reduced development risks..

Why uDTM SDK from Utthunga?

DTM development and certification for a field device without having knowledge on FDT DTM specification is a tedious job and getting to market takes a lot of time. Utthunga has solved this problem by offering a mature and robust DTM development suite called uDTM SDK. It helps to quickly build the DTM with limited knowledge on the FDT/DTM technologies. This SDK contains the certifiable DTM component and makes the DTM certification easy.


  • Built using .Net, WPF and XML making it easy to build the DTM
  • Supports 1.2.x, FDT 2.0 standards and complies to FDT style guide
  • Supports development of device DTMs, Communication DTM and Gateway DTMs.
  • HART, PROFIBUS, FF Protocol support
  • Support for complex algorithms
  • Visual Studio Integrated
  • Tested, Documented and Supported
  • Sample DTM for reference implementation
  • Supports below FDT-DTM functionalities:

Mandatory interfaces of FDT as per specification:

  • Audit Trail
  • Print
  • Upload/Download
  • Offline and Online Parameterization
  • User Roles
  • Device Identification
  • Import and Export
  • Device Health Status
