KPCI-488LPA IEEE-488.2 Interface
Board for the PCI Bus
KUSB-488B IEEE-488.2
USB-to-GPIB Interface
Adapter for USB Port.
Built in 2m (6.6 ft) cable
Keithley’s GPIB interface solutions make it easy
to add standard IEEE-488.2 bus control to any
PC system. These high speed tools can control
as many as 14 GPIB instruments or other devices
over a distance of up to 20 meters. They are
ideal for use with automated test equipment in
laboratory and industrial applications.
applications or for other applications in which
the computer has no available PCI plug-in board
slots. The product is USB 2.0 compliant and
has an IEEE data transfer rate upwards of 1.5
MB/s through the USB port. No external power
is required. KUSB-488B has a built-in 2-meter
USB cable.
The Keithley Model KPCI-488LPA is a lowprofile, GPIB interface plug-in card that is
32-bit/33MHz PCI bus compatible. Its PCI
interface supports both 3.3V and 5V PCI environments, making it suitable for most desktop
computers and industrial PCs, including the
new low-profile desktop systems. This low-cost
solution supports Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000, and
its driver library is command compatible with
National Instruments™ and Capital Equipment
Corporation™ command functions.
The included utility software simplifies the setup
and use of Keithley GPIB interface solutions and
saves programming time. Every solution ships
with 32-bit dynamic link libraries for Application
Development Environments (ADEs) running
under Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000 and drivers for
the most c­ urrent programming languages. This
adds up to full compatibility with a full array of
software, ­including:
• Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 (Visual Basic,
Visual C++)
• Microsoft Visual Studio .NET (Visual
Basic .NET, C#)
• Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 and up
• Borland Delphi, Borland C Builder 6.0
• LabVIEW Version 7.0 and up (VISA and
• LabWindows™/CVI Version 7.0 and up (VISA
and IEEE-488.2)
The Keithley Model KUSB-488B USB-to-GPIB
interface turns any computer with a USB port
into a fully functional GPIB controller. The
KUSB-488B’s small form factor makes it perfect for use with laptop computers in portable
