This is a collection of EPICS drivers and other software that have been developed or improved at the INFN-LNL during these years among the different projects and times. The list might be incomplete or outdated, but we will try to keep it updated. Most of the work done is based on the knowledge shared among the EPICS Community through meetings, conferences and seminars. Thanks to all of them for the extraordinary support.
