Microstar Laboratories recently released version 3.00 of the Accel32 for Linux software. The software compiles a Loadable Kernel Module (LKM) for the GNU/Linux system, extending capabilities for control of the Data Acquisition Processor (DAP) boards to systems using GNU/Linux operating systems with kernel versions in the 4.xx series.
Accel32 for Linux is offered under the BSD license for free download. DAP boards provide an Intel x86-family embedded processor to support operation of the embedded DAPL 2000 system and data acquisition hardware devices. The DAPL 2000 system is part of the DAPtools software, which Microstar Laboratories provides for free for operating the DAP boards. The DAPL 2000 system provides the configuration scripting and the multitasking real-time control of data acquisition hardware devices. A host system must provide PCI or PCI-X (extended) I/O bus slots to host the DAP boards. This software runs under 32-bit versions of the GNU/Linux system, which you can install on 32- or 64-bit hardware platforms.
