GP-IB(LPCI)F, GP
Ver.2.10
High-speed IEEE-488.2 GPIB communication
board for Low Profile PCI
GP-IB(LPCI)F, GP-IB(LPCI)FL
These products are Low Profile size PCI bus-compliant
interface board with support for bus master operation and
which complies with IEEE-488.1 and IEEE-488.2. The card
can be used in a PC to control communications with devices
that support the GPIB interface and perform GPIB bus line data
analysis.
You can use the supplied driver library to develop application
software using any programming language that supports the
Win32 API routines (such as Visual Basic or Visual C++), or
using LabVIEW.

Features
Complies with the IEEE-488.2 standard
As the card complies with the IEEE-488.2 standard, you can
control any external device that supports this standard.
Data transfer speed 1.5Mbyte/sec max.
The maximum data transfer speed for communications is
1.5Mbyte/sec.
Supports bus master operation
The bus master data transfer function enables large quantities
of data to be transferred between the board and PC without
loading the CPU.
Internal 2Kbyte FIFO buffers for send and receive
The board has separate 2Kbyte FIFO buffers for sending and
receiving data, allowing both small and large volumes of data to
be transferred at high speed.
Interface messages also use a FIFO to enable high-speed
transmission.
Built-in GPIB bus analyzer function
The board features a bus analyzer function. [GP-IB(LPCI)F]
This not only allows the signals on the GPIB bus to analyzed,
but also permits signal analysis to be performed while the
board is performing GPIB communications
Built-in SPAS event function
In addition to the functions of the earlier GPIB controller
(μPD7210), the board also supports the SPAS event generated
when a serial poll occurs. This gives you a high level of
flexibility in constructing your system.
Internal high-precision timer
The board includes a high-precision application timer to allow
accurate time monitoring to be performed under Windows.
Long term availability
As the board uses a high-speed GPIB controller developed by
CONTEC (upwardly compatible with the μPD7210), reliable
long term availability is ensured.
Other
A function is provided to read all control lines and data lines.
This enables various operations to be performed from the
application. [Includes control line latch function. Data lines
are only supported on the GP-IB(LPCI)F.]
Support for both of Low Profile size and standard size slots
(interchangeable with a bundled bracket).

Driver Library API-PAC(W32) (Bundled)
API-PAC(W32) is the library software that provides the
commands for CONTEC hardware products in the form of
Windows standard Win32 API functions (DLL). It makes it
easy to create high-speed application software taking
advantage of the CONTEC hardware using various
programming languages that support Win32 API functions,
such as Visual Basic and Visual C++.
It can also be used by the installed diagnosis program to check
hardware operations.
