System Driver Sets


What is a System Driver Set?

The Standard and Premium Service Programs for Systems include the selection of a legacy or recently released System Driver Set (SDS). An SDS is a collection of NI driver software and tools with validated compatibility, typically released on a quarterly basis. These sets facilitate standardization on a fixed collection of driver software throughout an application life cycle. When configuring an NI PXI, CompactRIO, or CompactDAQ system with either of the previously mentioned programs, one can select any of the available system driver sets to be installed on their system. Another entitlement of the Service Program for System includes a hard copy (USB) of the system driver set - located with the system documentation. Every System Driver Set is available through the purchase of Standard and Premium programs, allowing for easy replication of systems and repeat system orders.
