Through the use of interrupts, the card removes the need for the CPU to continuously check the changes in status and pattern matching, allowing users to optimize system performance.
PCI Express has been available in commercial PC’s for a long time and is becoming more common in industrial machines. Since these PCIE cards use the same underlying bus architecture as PCI, there is no need to redevelop software for transition and users can transfer their legacy systems to the new interface without any inconvenience.
PCI Express cards are configured using the same free universal utility and configuration software, Advantech’s DAQNavi. To help with the development of applications, Advantech provides a range of options such as an SDK which works with: Microsoft Visual Studio .NET including C#, VB, and C++, as well as Delphi. DAQNavi also includes free utilities such as virtual graphic VOM, a data-logger graphically displayed, function testing, documentation and code examples for the SDK.
