RapidDriver
is a product family, providing direct access to USB, PCI, ISA and LPT resources from user mode and kernel. RapidDriver can be used to work with devices form integrated environment as well as from user applications.
Version 2.1.1.1 released!

 License and registration

RapidDriver source code
We offer an option to purchase the drivers and DLL source code. The source code can be directly edited and compiled with MS Visual C/C++ or with the DDK "build" utility.
Custom driver development
We can provide custom driver development for a wide range of equipment, including PCI, ISA and USB devices, as well as assistance in porting old DOS, VxD and NT device drivers to the WDM driver architecture. For further information, contact us.
TVicHW32
provides the programmers with standard methods for real-time direct access to port I/O, physical memory, hardware interrupts, and much more.
Order TVicHW32.

TVicLPT
lets you access and control hardware that connects to the parallel port (LPT).

Developers' Toolkits

We have toolkits intended for both hardware and software developers; they include built-in device drivers and provide the following functionality:

  • Testing and debugging your device;
  • Writing your own user mode application and test the device;
  • Full control of USB/ISA/PCI/LPT custom hardware;
  • Create fully functional device driver for your device.

Most common applications of our toolkits are:

  • Data acquisition (DAQ) systems, processes and boards;
  • Control stepper motors connected to the port of computer;
  • Control the movement of microscope components in microscope systems;
  • Digital input/output control;
  • PC-based testing equipment for the development, manufacture and servicing of electronic products;
  • USB/ISA/PCI/LPT evaluation boards and I/O cards;
  • Collecting data from sensors;
  • Control and automation systems;
  • Motion control;
  • and much more (read about possible applications of our toolkits).

If you are a hardware developer, using RapidDriver Explorer with just a couple of clicks, you can easily start testing and debugging your USB, ISA, PCI or Parallel Port device. You do not have to perform any additional steps - everything is already done!

If you are a software developer, you can write your own application with the help of RapidDriver Developer, TVicHW32 or TVicPort without writing a device driver and being a DDK expert - we have already built-in generic device drivers for you! Our toolkits include many test examples on direct port i/o access, interrupt handling, physical memory access, reading specific hardware registers and USB pipes to help you getting started. We also allow redistribution of drivers and DLL's as part of your software without having to pay royalties.

For the software developers, we also offer an option to purchase the drivers and DLL source code. The source code can be directly edited and compiled with MS Visual C/C++ or with the DDK "build" utility.
