Installing 3590 tape drive to pSeries server run on AIX5.3

Brothers, I have a question on compatible issues.
I have a p570 server running on AIX5.3.0.0 TL04.
Recently I have received a 3590 tape drive with library and I am wonder whether I can make use of this tape drive for my normal daily backup of AIX in p570 server.
Any driver or adapter that I need to make this work?

You will need to install the Atape driver for this type of tape drive / library.
