just look into the test application, source should be provided.
if you copy the imports into your own application you can use the SDK functions.

you need the SDK or at least the source of a sample to start working with a device as you won't be able to guess the function names they use within their driver.
at least the devices i worked with had these things either provided or available at the manufacturers website.
