GPIB Driver Supports 32-/64-bit Windows

The 488.2V4 GPIB driver for controlling test instruments fully supports 32- and 64-bit Windows operating systems as well as 64-bit programs and includes a 64-bit DLL for executing 64-bit programs. It matches up with the company’s 488-USB2 USB-to-GPIB Controller, 488-LPCI PCI GPIB Controller, and 488-PXI PXI GPIB Controller cards. The driver is compatible with Windows XP/Vista/7 and will automatically detect the version of the operating system and install the correct lower level drivers and utilities for that operating system. Its GPIB-32.dll is compatible with other GPIB-32.dlls and supports programs written with direct dll calls as well as VISA libraries from Agilent, Kikusui, and National Instruments.
