Geotest has released the GtLinux v1.0 software driver package which allows Geotest’s PXI instruments to operate under the Linux operating system.
The initial release includes support for Geotest’s DC source instruments (GX1642/8), the GTX2200 counter / timer family, the GX3500 Flex DIO FPGA card, and static digital I/O cards(GX5731/2/3 and GX5641/2). In addition, an update to Geotest’s instrument driver libraries now supports Geotest’s PXI instruments under the National Instruments LabVIEW RT software environment.
Geotest’s GtLinux driver package supports both 32 and 64 bit Linux operating systems and is compatible with the Linux kernel 2.6 or higher. Support for LabVIEW RT is now included with Geotest’s standard driver libraries.
GtLinux can be downloaded from the Geotest website .
