The Hilscher RTX driver is a RTDLL (CIFRTXDriver.rtdll) which supports CIF30 (ISA), and CIF50 (PCI) cards. The RTX driver API is based on the existing CIF Device Driver API for Windows.

The driver offers transparent access to the different devices. Therefore it hides the functionality’s for ISA and PCI cards. The cards can be selected by the original ‘Device Type” string and a board number between 0 to 3.

For better performance and easier access to the hardware, the standard API functions are extended by new parameters. These parameters are used to pass a driver and device handle down to the driver.
