Q:
  Where can I download drivers for AK40G adapter?

A:  There are no drivers available for AK40G as there is no need for one.

The AK40G is a USB to GPIB adapter that is used only for the supported series of function/arbitrary waveform generators.  This adapter is NOT a controller adapter.  This means it cannot be used to connect via USB to a computer and allow for a GPIB interface to be available on the computer side.  Therefore, no drivers are available.

This adapter is used only for connecting the USB into the supported instrument's front panel USB, allowing for GPIB interface to be available on the instrument.  This adapter is necessary only if you want to communicate with the instrument over GPIB and that your computer already has the GPIB bus available for communication. 

The AK40G is designed to be connected only as illustrated below:
