Advanced SCSI Peripheral Interface
<storage, programming> (ASPI) A set of libraries designed to provide
programs running under Microsoft Windows with a consistent interface for
accessing SCSI devices. ASPI has become a de facto standard.
The ASPI layer is a collection of programs (DLLs) that together implement the
ASPI interface. Many problems are caused by device manufacturers packaging
incomplete sets of these DLLs with their hardware, often with incorrect date
stamps, causing newer versions to get replaced with old. ASPICHK from Adaptec
will check the ASPI components installed on a computer.
The latest ASPI layer as of March 1999 is 1014.
The ATAPI standard for IDE devices makes them look to the system like SCSI
devices and allows them to work through ASPI.
