What It Does

The ATI I/O Communications Processor SMBus Controller sends and receives data frames and commands. The engine that transmits and receives the protocol is run by a software driver that uses predetermined bits to indicate the last frame in a series.

How It Works

The information is put into a transmit frame before being sent. The communication processor couples with the network and the host computer. The host computer includes the communication processor, host memory, payload data and the CPU.

The Software Driver

The software driver is shareware, which means it is available for free, both the original download and the updates. It is compatible with Microsoft Windows 7. It is recommended that you run a registry scan before installing any software.
