The PCI-DIO-48/48S is a digital input/out card developed to be used by computers with PCI-Bus. Aside from The PCI-DIO-48/48S, other card devices that has the same function include PCI-DIO-48JPL/JPLS, PCI-DIO-48JP/JPS, PCI-DIO-24S and PCI-DIO-48H/HS. These card devices mainly feature a 24 and 48-bit parallel input/output cards specifically designed to support those computers that makes use of PCI-Bus. The card device such as PCI-DIO-48/48S, contains 2 peripheral interface chips PPI with type 8255-5 designed to provide 48 I/O lines to the computer interface. Each of these two PPI contain Three 8-bit ports. These 8-bit ports, port A, B, and C, may be configure to enable them to function as input devices or latched output devices.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The PCI-DIO-48/48S, along with the other 48J/48JS cards, uses a 68-pin SCSI-type connector. Cards such as the 48H/48HS cards, on the other hand, features a 100-pin SCSI-type connector. An SCSI is a series of standards set more specifically for connection and transfer of data and information between computers and its peripheral devices. SCSI standards essentially set commands and protocols in computer and its peripheral connections. The PCI-DIO-48/48S as well as the other 48JP/48JPS cards mainly uses a 68-pin SCSI-type connector that has a pin-in-socket design. Jackscrews are use as means to retain mating cable. For 48JPL/48JPLS cards, they utilizes a 68-pin SCSI-type pin-in-socket connectors also but a one-touch latches are used in behalf of jack screws. One distinct characteristic of 48J/48JS cards models such as the PCI-DIO-48/48S device is that all of its inputs can be monitored. In situation where there are changes in some of the bits, one can generate a latched interrupt in these cards. This changes and modifications of bit states is executed by a software solution that write commands to allow bit state modifications. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and ACCES PCI-DIO-48S errors before installing any driver updates.
