LPCI-3488A/PXI-3488 High-Performance IEEE-488 GPIB Interface Cards Introduction The IEEE-488 standard, also known as GPIB, is a bus interface that connects instruments with a computer to form an ATE system. GPIB was initially developed by Hewlett Packard and was recognized as an IEEE standard in 1978. The IEEE-488.1-1978 standard defines the convention for electrical and mechanical bus characteristics, as well as the state diagram for each bus function. In 1987, another standard was derived from the original IEEE-488.1-1978 and known as IEEE-488.2-1978. It was introduced to define data formats, common commands, and control protocols for instruments. In general, IEEE-488.1 defines hardware specifications, and IEEE-488.2 defines software specifications. The IEEE-488 standard has been widely accepted by instrument vendors over the past few decades. Today, GPIB is still the most popular interface between computer and instruments.

Some ADEs are popular via VISA in ADE because users can implement any function needed using textual programming (ex. VC++/VB, TestExec) or graphical Native driver API programming (ex. LabVIEW*) techniques. A vital part Driver API to provide IEEEof a test and measurement application is to control and communicate with GPIB instruments. Two techniques are 488 functions (GPIB-32.DLL) generally used to control the GPIB interface: invoke the native driver API or use the existing instrument drivers via ADLINK LPCI-3488A VISA. A native driver API is provided by most GPIB interface ADLINK PXI-3488 vendors and is usually in the form of ANSI C functions. Agilent 82350B For users who need more detailed control over GPIB GPIB Cards NI PCI-GPIB* instruments, using a driver API with SCPI string commands is a good choice. For others who want to keep away from ... complicated instrument commands, instrument drivers developed for specific ADEs (ex. LabVIEW*/TestExec) can significantly simplify the complexity of instrument control. Most of the instrument drivers use a VISA library to control the GPIB interface and communicate with instruments. VISA support is essential in this case. ADLINK GPIB interface cards work with your applications in both ways. Its GPIB-32.DLL provides binary compatibility with the popular NI-488.2* driver software. The LPCI-3488A and PXI-3488 also provide VISA library support that can be used with most common instrument drivers written by instrument vendors. Regardless if you are using VC++, VB, Delphi, LabVIEW*, or any other T&M ADE, ADLINK GPIB interface cards are the most cost-effective GPIB solutions compatible with all your applications. PCI™/PCI Express /ExpressCard™ Expanded Anywhere ® With ADLINK Bus Expansion Technology What is Bus Expansion Technology? Bus expansion, or bus extension, is a technology that increases the number of bus slots of the same or different bus types for a host computer system. Typically, a bus expansion system is composed of three major parts, an expansion card installed in the host computer, Specialized Cable Expansion Card an expansion chassis to provide more bus slots, and a specialized cable to connect them. Though the host computer and the expansion chassis are physically separated, they More Bus Slots are logically the same computer system. All cards installed in the expansion chassis are recognized and operated as if they were installed in the host computer, without any additional drivers or software needed. Host Computer Expansion Chassis Benefits of Bus Expansion Technology CPU • Increase bus slots, let customers install more PCI™ devices into a single PC system. • Provide interoperability of different bus interface device, PCI™ and PXI™ in a PC system. Arbitrary PCI device Host • Leverage latest and superb computing power of server-grade computer, without changing your PCI™ modules.

The PCI™ bus is a parallel bus which contains 32 data lines (32-bit PCI™) or 64 data lines (64-bit PCI™), while PCI Express® bus is a high-speed serialized bus which uses 2.5 Gbps LVDS signal pairs to transmit/receive data. Distinct extension technologies are used for different bus types. In this section, we’ll illustrate the technologies we use for ADLINK bus expansion solutions. PCI-based Expansion Technology (PCI-to-PCI, PCIto-PXI, PXI-to-PXI) ADLINK leverages a state-of-art StarFabric™ technology to design our PCI-based expansion solution. The ADLINK PCI-based expansion solution works as a transparent PCI™ bridge and converts PCI™ bus signals to serialized StarFabric™ data format and transmits the data using LVDS signal pairs. This new expansion solution provides up to 10 meters of expansion distance and extremely reliable operation. 3-3 www.adlinktech.com CPU Arbitrary PCI device Host Bridge Memory Bus 0 PCI bridge Device Device PCI bridge Device Bus 1 Device Host Computer Expansion Chassis The PCI™ signals are transmitted over a parallel cable Bus Expansion 1 PXI Step 2 Sele CAT-5 cable is used to connect two chassis CPU 622 Mbps Memory PCI bridge StarFabric port Host Bridge Bus 0 Device Device Arbitrary PCI Device 622 Mbps 622 Mbps 622 Mbps 622 Mbps 622 Mbps 622 Mbps Device Device PCI bridge StarFabric port PCI Express® bus is inherently a serialized bus.

Offering up to 13 (PCES-8581-13S) or four PCI slots (PCES-8581-4S, ECS-8582-4S), these expansion systems operate in 32-bit/33 MHz configuration and come with complete end-to-end hardware and software transparency for the host system. Hardware devices installed in the expansion system behave and work as if these are directly installed into the host system, requiring no additional drivers or software installation. The host system may be separated from the expansion system at up to seven meters using high-quality shielded twisted copper cables. The robust and reliable PCI expansion-to-PCI expansion systems are suited for portable test and measurement applications with high-density I/O requirement and in hazardous industrial control and automation environments.

For users and applications requiring control of multiple PCI devices from one PC system, this limitation causes great difficulty when searching for and deciding on a suitable computer system. With the ADLINK PCES-8581-13S expansion system, users can easily expand their system and conveniently accommodate 13 PCI devices or more. For rugged applications where the PC system is subjected to a hazardous environment, valuable components such as the CPU and hard disk drive are easily damaged. To protect these valuable IT investments, the PCES-8581-13S and the PCES-8581-4S PCI Express-to-PCI expansion system can be controlled remotely at up to 7 meters from the host PC using a high-speed and well-shielded cable. While the host PC system is installed at a safe distance from the rugged environment, the remote expansion system is designed to withstand extreme temperatures or high vibration. On the other hand, if your PCI devices require less electromagnetic interference, you may also use the PCI Express-to-PCI expansion system to isolate high frequency interferences from the CPU, memory, or North/Southbridge chips. These expansion systems also allow close installation of your DAQ and/or control cards with the DUT (Device Under Test) for a more compact and space-saving test and measurement environment. The ExpressCard-to-PCI expansion technology The ECS-8582-4S expansion system consists of an EC-8560 installed in the laptop computer, a RK-8005 expansion chassis with pre-installed backplane and PCI-8565 expansion card to accommodate PCI™ cards, and a cable to connect them. The EC-8560 is an ExpressCard/34 module that re-drives the PCI Express® signal and transmits it through the cable. On the other side, the PCI-8565 installed in the expansion chassis equalizes the signal and works as a PCI Express-to-PCI bridge to accommodate four 32-bit/33 MHz PCI™ slots. Operating with full 132 MB/s PCI™ bandwidth, the ECS-8582-4S delivers an easy solution for bus expansion without any sacrifice of performance. Note: Due to the BIOS design, some laptop computers may be limited by system resource allocation for external PCI™ devices.

With its state-of-the-art StarFabric high-speed serial link technology, you can expand your PCI bus of a host computer to an external chassis, which accommodates four (PCIS-8580-4S) or 13 (PCIS-8580-13S) additional PCI slots. This advanced technology provides full 32-bit/33 MHz PCI bandwidth (132 MB/s) and a maximum of 10 M distance between host computer and expansion chassis. The ADLINK PCI-to-PCI expansion system utilizes the concept of “serialized bridge” to provide complete hardware and software transparency to your host system. Any hardware installed in the extension chassis works as if it is directly installed inside the host system without the need for additional drivers or software. The ADLINK PCIS-8580 PCI-to-PCI expansion system is composed of three major components: a PCI expansion card (LPCI-8575), an expansion chassis (RK-8005/RK-8014), and a cable (ACL-PCIEXT-2). The PCI expansion card is the core of this system. It acts as a PCI bridge with the capability to serialize PCI signals and maintain a 5 Gbps serial link between the host system and expansion chassis. The expansion chassis, which is a 4-slot wall-mount chassis (RK-8005) or a 13-slot rack-mount chassis (RK-8014), is the platform to accommodate PCI slots. It contains a backplane, a power supply, and a pre-installed PCI extension card. The cable, which consists of DVI-D connector and shielding twisted pairs, provides robust connectivity and maintains proper signal quality between the host computer and the expansion chassis.

Implementing master and slave extension modules, users can have direct control of PXI/CompactPCI chassis from any other PC or another PXI/CompactPCI system. All devices on the system are deemed to be local devices on the same PCI bus. With ADLINK PCI/PXI-8570, users can combine PCI, CompactPCI, and PXI devices in the same system, increase the available number of PXI/CompactPCI slots for high-density I/O application and separate a control system from a harsh environment with an expansion chassis. 2 Modular Instruments The PCI interface supports 64-bit or 32-bit PCI buses operating at 66 MHz or 33 MHz. By adopting shielded twisted copper cables, PCI-8570/PXI-8570 can expand the transmission distance to 10 meters. One master expansion card (either PCI-8570 or PXI-8570) can expand up to 2 slave expansion modules (PXI-8570) at the same time. A bundled link can support the full bandwidth of a 64-bit/66 MHz PCI bus. All interrupts asserted by add-in cards in the expansion system are passed through the expansion set to the host system.
