  • v1.05 & cio-dio24 support pack: upgrade to pci- or usb-dio24?

    I have an old dinosaur of a computer on which I am running
    SuperLab v1.05 with SuperLab CIO-DIO24 Support Pack. The
    computer has an old CIO-DIO24 board which is used to get triggers
    from an external device.

    The system has worked fine for years, but I wish to replace the
    hardware before either the computer or the card fails. In the
    immediate future, I need to be able to rerun the some of my old
    experiments. Thus for now, I would prefer not to upgrade from
    v1.05 unless the upgrade was fully backwards compatible with
    the old experiment files.

    My options seem to be:
    1) Find several old, working computers as backups.
    2) Buy a new computer (or just motherboard) with an ISA slot.
    3) Switch to a PCI or USB card in a newer computer I have lying around.

    The third option is most attractive at the moment. Measurement
    Computing claims that the PCI-DIO24 is "software compatible"
    with the CIO-DIO24.

    Is it possible to use a different card type with v1.05 or a functionally
    equivalent upgrade of SuperLab? Would I need a new driver or
    support pack?

    You should download SuperLab 2.0 from our website. SuperLab 2.0 is backwards compatible with SuperLab 1.05. Both the CIO-DIO24 and PCI-DIO24 cards are compatible with SuperLab 2.0.

      Thanks. I appreciate the support for customers with such old versions.
