What is GPIB?
The General Purpose Interface Bus (GPIB) is an ANSI/IEEE488 standard specified by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers). GPIB defines the electrical, mechanical, functional and software characteristics for the connection system between the PC and the programmable instrument.
GPIB History: Learn more about the history of GPIB technology development.
GPIB software and hardware specifications definition: Read the detailed specifications of IEEE 488.1 and IEEE 488.2.
HS488 protocol: Understand the HS488 protocol, which was created by NI and later standardized by IEEE.
NI GPIB products are mainly composed of the following 6 categories:
Plug-in controller: GPIB controller for plug-in bus interfaces (such as PCI Express, PCI, PXI and PCMCIA).
External GPIB controller: GPIB adapter, control GPIB instrument through USB, Ethernet, RS232 and IEEE 1394 interface bus
Related support products: GPIB extender, expander/isolator and mechanical switch, etc.
Software: NI-488.2 host-side driver software, NI-Device device-side driver software
ASIC: TNT high-performance GPIB controller chip, NAT drop-in replacement GPIB controller chip
Wiring and accessories: GPIB cables, adapters, stackable components, etc.
