Introduction to ATDAQ DLL
1.1 What is ATDAQ DLL
ATDAQ DLL is the Microsoft Windows drivers for
CyberResearch ISA-bus multi-function cards ATAO 06, ATAO 02,
ATDAQ 1200, ATDAQ 3210, ATDAQ 3210A, ATDAQ 1411/1412,
ATDAQ 1400, ATDAQ 1412HR and ATDAQ1612/HR. They are
high performance data acquisition drivers for developing custom
applications under Windows 3.1, Windows 95/98, Win-NT 4.0
and Windows 2000. These drivers are DLLs (Dynamic-Link
Library) for using under Windows. They can work with any
Windows programming language that allows calls to a DLL, such
as Microsoft C/C++, Microsoft Visual Basic.
Built into these DLLs are sophisticated memory and data buffer
management capabilities that free developers from having to
deal with those complex issues.
Using these DLLs lets you take advantage of the power and
features of Microsoft Windows 3.11, Win-NT 4.0, Windows 95/98
and Windows 2000 for your data acquisition application. These
include running multiple applications and using extended
memory. Also, Visual Basic and ATDAQ DLL’s DLLs make it
easy to create custom user interfaces and graphics.

Software Overview
Each CyberResearch ISA-bus multi-function card has its own
DLL driver. How to use these DLL to build your own application
has been described in section 1.7. The function calls in these
DLLs use intuitive names that reflect the operations they perform.
For example,
W_ATDAQ1200_AD_Set_Channel sets the A/D reading channel.
The functionality of these function calls can be classified to the
following capabilities,
1. Initialization : setup the hardware base I/O address
2. A/D conversion : performs analog to digital conversion
3. D/A conversion : performs digital to analog conversion
4. Digital I/O : input or output digital signals
5. Timer/Counter : Timer/Counter operation
In addition, some sample programs are also included in this disk.
They help you to understand how to use the driver more quickly.
We defined some data types in ATDAQDLL.H. These data types
are used by ATDAQ DLL library. We suggest you to use these
data types in your application programs. The following table
shows the data type names and their ranges.

Product Service
Diagnosis and Debug
CyberResearch, Inc. maintains technical support lines staffed by experienced
Applications Engineers and Technicians. There is no charge to call and we will
return your call promptly if it is received while our lines are busy. Most problems
encountered with data acquisition products can be solved over the phone. Signal
connections and programming are the two most common sources of difficulty.
CyberResearch support personnel can help you solve these problems, especially
if you are prepared for the call.
To ensure your call’s overall success and expediency:
1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
Have the phone close to the PC so you can conveniently and quickly take
action that the Applications Engineer might suggest.
Be prepared to open your PC, remove boards, report back-switch or
jumper settings, and possibly change settings before reinstalling the
modules.
Have a volt meter handy to take measurements of the signals you are
trying to measure as well as the signals on the board, module, or power
supply.
Isolate problem areas that are not working as you expected.
Have the source code to the program you are having trouble with available
so that preceding and prerequisite modes can be referenced and
discussed.
Have the manual at hand. Also have the product’s utility disks and any
other relevant disks nearby so programs and version numbers can be
checked.
Preparation will facilitate the diagnosis procedure, save you time, and avoid
repeated calls. Here are a few preliminary actions you can take before you call
which may solve some of the more common problems:
1)
2)
3)
4)
Check the PC-bus power and any power supply signals.
Check the voltage level of the signal between SIGNAL HIGH and SIGNAL
LOW, or SIGNAL+ and SIGNAL– . It CANNOT exceed the full scale range
of the board.
Check the other boards in your PC or modules on the network for address
and interrupt conflicts.
Refer to the example programs as a baseline for comparing code.
