Standard drivers (MCS9835/Nm9835 Chip) for Windows and Linux available:
…for Windows 95b/98/Me/NT4.0/2000/XP
Drivers For Linux an "Installation Guide" is available on the homepage of the chip manufacturer.
Note for Linux Kernel 2.4:
The Linux kernel 2.4 includes a special device driver named "parport_serial.o" which can be installed alternativly. For access to the driver select the option "Multi I/O cards" within the section "Parallel port support" and recompile the kernel. This driver supports the ME-9200 (MCS9835/Nm9835 chip) by default. This device driver is not yet available with kernel 2.6. In order to load the driver manually, simply type in the command line:
# modprobe parport_serial
If you want the driver to be loaded automatically, you can add an appropriate entry to the file /etc/modules.conf. For example:
post-install serial insmod parport_serial
This will cause the "parport_serial.o" module to be loaded after the serial driver. Depending on your system configuration the entry may differ from this example above.
With Agilent VEE and LabVIEW, the serial ports are accessible as standard COM ports.
