PCIS-DASK and D2K-DASK are the industry's most advanced 32-bit
application development device driver for custom data acquisition under
Windows NT/98/2000/XP and Linux.
ADLINK's PCIS-DASK and D2K-DASK software drivers provide a common
Application Programming Interfaces(APIs) to ADLINK's extensive family of
PCI, CompactPCI-bus plug-in data acquisition boards, making these drivers
ideal for custom applications development under Microsoft Windows
98/NT/2000/XP and Linux.
With DASK driver, you can easily access all NuDAQ and DAQ-2000 series
PCI-based/CompactPCI DAQ plug-in cards functionality. DASK delivers
performance, integrates systems and does not "run out of
stream". ADLINK has spent many man-year efforts of development in
PCIS-DASK driver to ensure that you can get the best performance out of
any data acquisition system you create.
DASK maintains a consist programming interface across the platforms,
such as Windows NT, Windows 98, Windows 2000/XP, and Linux, so that you
can create your applications on the computer brand, and operating systems
In addition to basic I/O support, the DASK API also provides
sophisticated build-in capability to handle memory and data buffer
management. A double-buffered mode processes can be repeated endlessly to
provide a continuous stream of data to your applications.
The DASK is designed to maximize programming flexibility and data
throught put. There is only one set of Application Programming Interface
(API), so each card can use the same API to program. This reduces the
developer's learning effort if more than one kind of PCI NuDAQ card or
DAQ-2000 series card is used.
Examples demonstrating the use of DASK with applicable third party
development tools are included. More than 60 examples demonstrate
single-point I/O, buffered data acquisition, double-buffering for
continuous and seamless acquisition etc.
