GPIB Interface Jumps On The Universal Serial Bus

The intrepid GPIB interface finds up-to-date functionality by way of the USB-GPIB controller module that converts any PC with a USB interface into a full-function, IEEE 488.2 bus controller. Based on the company’s CB7210 chip, the module performs all basic IEEE-488.1 functions, such as talker, listener, and system controller. Its IEEE-488.2 controller routines make it compliant with the IEEE 488.2 specification. The compact module plugs into any available GPIB connector—either the open end of a cable stack or at the back of an instrument. Finger-size jackscrews secure and hold the module in any position and three LEDs provide visual status and diagnostics. Operating-system support is via Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP. Additionally, the module includes a driver that supports Visual Basic, C/C++, VISA, LabVIEW, and MatLab. Price is $399 each. MEASUREMENT COMPUTING CORP., Middleboro, MA. (508) 946-5100.
