AC-Link modems are primarily designed for hosting in mobile computer systems although various desktop computer motherboards are being introduced with built-in designs for this particular modem architecture. Modems are basically communication devices which allow for the conversion of digital files into analog signals in order to transmit them across conventional telephone lines. Once the signal reaches the recipient, the modem converts the analog signal into its digital format and recreates the data to come up with the original format of the file. The device driver associated with the hardware component is also responsible for implementing various feature sets that are intended to preserve data integrity without necessarily sacrificing the data transfer rate. As a type of communication hardware component it allows the computer user to log into various remote computer networks by supporting the prevailing network protocols of both the host computer system and that of the remote server.
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 AC-Link feature supported by the device driver of the Generic AC-Link Modem for SIS is actually a digital link that is responsible for connecting the host controller system with the codecs of the machine. The technology makes use of reset signal, a synch signal, and two sets of data wires which are used for sending and receiving information. In terms of communication networks it allows for the implementation of bidirectional fixed bitrate data transfers. The series of digital data streams are maintained between a single host controller and multiple audio codecs. The data streams supported by the device driver of the Generic AC-Link Modem for SIS are commonly composed of 256-bit frames with a 48 Hz frequency per frame. The technology is based on the Time Division Multiplexing scheme with each frame further subdivided into 13 slots wherein the 16-bit slot zero used to identify the specific codec that is currently communicating with the host controller. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Generic AC-Link Modem for SIS errors before installing any driver updates.
