GP-IB(USB)FL Low Price High-Speed GPIB Communication Micro Converter for USB2.0

Shipping calculated at checkout.

    This micro converter enables GPIB communication simply by connecting to the USB interface of your PC. The connection to each communication control device can be established by using the interface as it complies with IEEE-488.1 and IEEE-488.2 standards. The converter features a Windows driver (API-USBP(WDM).

    Employs a buffer memory: 2 Kbytes for transmission and 2 Kbytes for reception.

    Employs a buffer memory (2 Kbytes dedicated to transmission and 2 Kbytes dedicated to reception) to reduce the load to the CPU when transmitting/receiving.

    Windows/LabVIEW compatible driver libraries are attached.

    The API-USBP(WDM) attached driver library makes it possible to create applications for Windows/LabVIEW. In addition, the converter includes a diagnostic program to check hardware operation and to perform a basic communication test with connected equipment.

    Employs a high speed GPIB controller which is self-developed and capable of a stable supply.

    A self-developed GPIB controller (µPD7210 registers compatible) is employed so that a stable supply is available.

    Embedded Line Monitor Function

    With a readout feature for entire control lines (with latches), it is capable to read data from applications.

    Built-in SPAS event function (when slaving)

    In addition to the functions of the earlier GPIB controller (µPD7210), the product also supports the SPAS event generated when a serial poll occurs. This gives you a high level of flexibility when creating your system.
