SBS GreenSpring Modular I/O features Windows NT support for PCI and CompactPCI-based data acquisition systems utilizing IndustryPack mezzanine modules and carrier boards. The software is designed for industrial data acquisition, control applications, and interfaces with standard industrial I/O components. Compatible with a wide variety of IndustryPack I/O modules, the Windows NT software package defines a standard application programming interface for several functions of common industrial I/O, including analog, digital, counters and timers, temperature sensors, and motion control devices.
The drivers offer multi-thread protection that ensures data integrity and prevents concurrent access to a hardware device. The software provides a common application programming interface (API) across the same functions and allows transparent software changes when upgrading from one I/O module to another I/O module. The Windows NT software driver package offers support for CompactPCI, desktop PCI, industrial PCI and ISA architectures through a modular design of dynamic link libraries (DLL), and device drivers.
