Datasheet GPIB-USB-2
USB 2.0 IEEE-488.2 GPIB Adaptor
• True USB 2.0 High Speed (480Mb/s)
• Compact, full metal housing
• GPIB-32.DLL compatible, runs VEE, LabVIEW
• Windows (7, Vista, XP, 2000), Linux
The GPIB-USB-2 is a USB GPIB adaptor supporting USB 2
(480Mb/s) in a miniature full metal housing.
It performs all the basic IEEE-488.1 functions such as
talker, listener and system controller. The IEEE-488.2
compatible funcions make it fully compliant with the
IEEE-488.2 specification. In controller applications, you
can control typically up to 15 devices (instruments). If
operated as a talker/listener (device) interface it does
exchange data and state information with the current
controller-in-charge of the GPIB bus. The GPIB-USB-2 lets
Windows and Linux programs control GPIB devices.
The GPIB-USB-2 operates at USB 2.0 High Speed (480Mb/s).
It can be connected to any USB2.0 host or hub. The
GPIB-USB-2's very compact full metal housing has the same
size as a standard GPIB connector, thus eliminating the
space problems of traditional GPIB-to-USB converters when
used for equipment with narrow port openings. The
GPIB-USB-2 will fit on even the smallest port opening.
Windows The Windows software set is included with the
GPIB-USB-2. It is a WDM driver and supports Windows (7,
Vista, XP, 2000) on all PC compatible platforms. Libraries
and header files are included for the Visual C++, Visual
Basic, MINGW and Delphi development systems. An
industry standard compatible GPIB-32.DLL supports nearly
all applications designed for that interface, including
applications developed for LabView 6+, LabWindows,
Agilent VEE, TransEra HT-Basic, Agilent Intuilink, and more.
Linux The Linux software set is included with the
GPIB-USB-2. It supports the Intel (x86) platform Linux
kernel versions 2.4 and 2.6. Thus it is compatible with all
Linux distributions based on that kernels, e.g. Ubuntu,
RedHat, SuSE etc. Application development using the GNU
Compiler Collection (GCC) is supported. The ig++ class
library provides all interfaces required to control
instruments. In addition, IEEE488.2/SCPI compatible
instruments can be implemented using Linux based
embedded systems.
