The ACPCI-3501 driver is a driver for registration and configuration. The driver uses a communications subsystem to communicate with the hardware. It commands the device to invoke a routine. It depends on the hardware and the Operating System to function properly. This is the reason why there are many kinds of drivers. Operating Systems change fast and the drivers need to conform to them. Thus, new drivers are needed to be developed. They act as abstraction layers to simplify programming. They go in between the hardware and the Operating System. The abstraction layer hides the details of the software. It breaks down generic commands that are high level and basically turns them in to device specific, low level commands which are required by the device. This is what most applications use. It is called PRINTLN or print a line. The driver runs in kernel-mode, which protects the Operating System.
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 ADDI-DATA GmbH APCI-3501 is an optically isolated analog output board. It has 8 or 4 analog outputs and is 14-bit. It has an optical isolation of 500 volts. With each output, there is a separate ground line. The device is also short-circuit protected with an EMI-filter. It has an output voltage of 10 volts (-=10 volts). It has two versions; the APCI-350108 with 8 analog voltage outputs and the APCI-3501-4 with 4 analog voltage outputs. It has 2 digital inputs and 2 digital outputs, with 24 volts. At 24 volts, the input current is 3 mA typ and the maximum switching current is 5 mA typ. The device is used in controlling chemical processes, automating factories, industrial process control, measuring and monitoring. Its dimensions are 175 x 99 mm. It uses a PCI 32 bit 3.3/5 V acc to specification 2.1 PCISIG system bus, and requires 1 PCI slot for analog outputs and 1 slot opening for digital I/O with FB3000. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and ADDI-DATA GmbH APCI-3501 errors before installing any driver updates.
