DESCRIPTION
FEATURES
“Ultimate IEEE 488 performance from your PC”
The half size card extracts the
ultimate IEEE 488 performance from
your
PC.
Using
4
custom
programmed logic chips we have
taken PC-based IEEE cards to the
limit. PC Elite has the complete
Controller, Listener and Talker ability
and is 100% IEEE 488.2 compatible.
PC Elite is switch selectable as PCii or
PCiia compatible. Based on the
highly popular NEC 7210 GPIB
controller chip, PC Elite is 100%
register compatible with
the IBM
GPIB. and the "Classic" IEEE 488.1
version of NI PCii/iia cards. PC Elite is
also fully compatible with a host of
third party data capture and analysis
software.
Using
our
GPIB.COM
driver
existing programs written for any NI
card will work with the PC Elite card.
The
PRO488
device
driver,
detailed
opposite,
is
the
ideal
environment
for
developing
new
DOS and Windows applications.
The PC Elite combines the power
and flexibility of the IEEE standard
with the performance and availability
of
the
all-pervading
PC
bus
computer. Choose the PC Elite card
when compatibility and performance
are the issues.

GPIB.COM DRIVER
Our
100%
NI
compatible
GPIB.COM driver allows you to
maintain
and
run
existing
applications developed for use with
any NI GPIB card. GPIB.COM is the
binary
device
driver
interface
developed by National Instruments
and shipped with every one of their
IEEE cards. A large number of third
party applications, as well as NI's
own Lab Windows and Lab View
products have been written to work
with this driver. Our GPIB.COM
driver and it's associated BBCONF
program are 100% compatible with
the NI driver allowing users to run
all existing NI applications without
any change.
The high performance Elite card
with GPIB.COM allows migration to
a more cost-effective platform.
HIGH SPEED DMA
ORDER
The
DMA
hardware
allows
selection of one of three PC direct
memory access channels for high
speed data transfers, DRQ1-3. The
PC Elite allows DMA interrupt-sharing
with third party cards. DMA data
transfer rate exceeds 400K bytes per
second!

PRO488
The perfect partner for the PC
ELITE card is Professional 488, the
best PC-based IEEE software in the
world! PRO488 makes the PC ELITE
card an integral part of your PC,
allowing it to manage an IEEE bus
controlling up to 14 instruments. An
easy to use, enhanced industry
standard
control
language
addresses the IEEE devices and
provides
complete
instrumentation
control.
The heart of the PRO488 system
is the device driver that loads
automatically when your PC is
switched on, giving access to an
IEEE port in the same way as the
other resident ports LPT1 & COM1.
PRO488 makes full use of the
advanced features of your PC and
your IEEE bus instruments.
LEARNT IN MINUTES
PRO488
is
the
ideal
environment for IEEE based data
acquisition. Mature and carefully
thought
out,
it
implements
a
superset of Hewlett Packard's HPIB
language.
The
commands,
and
your
programs,
read
just
like
plain
English, so program development
and maintenance time is cut to an
absolute minimum. PRO488 runs
identically across the range of DOS
& Windows languages. The syntax,
parameters
&
returns
of
the
PRO488 system remain the same,
independent of the language you
are running. No extra language
driver or run time modules are
needed
to
implement
a
new
language. So you can use the ideal
IEEE system with the language of
your choice.
PRO488 talks the established
IEEE control languages, so you
probably already know how to use
it! A good way to learn is
interactively from the PC keyboard
using
the
GPIBTALK
program.
GPIBTALK is supplied ready to run
and with source code in each of 5
DOS languages. Menu driven, it
allows you to send IEEE commands,
transmit & receive data from your
bus devices and check the GPIB bus
status, all at the touch of a single
key. You get a good feel of the
power and ease of use of the
PRO488 command language in a
very short time. GPIBTALK is a fully
working
skeleton
program
on
which to build your own custom
applications. Most IEEE equipment
includes worked examples that are
virtually word for word PRO488
commands!
The instant and simple PRO488
concept make Visual Basic and
PRO488 the intuitive system for
writing
Windows
applications
quickly and effectively.

Data can be sent to the IEEE bus
devices
in
several
ways.
The
simplest is by writing to the
"IEEEDATA"
file.
PRO488
automatically addresses the devices
to listen and the PC outputs your
data.
Reading the "IEEEDATA" file
inputs
data
directly
into
your
variable from the IEEE bus device
using
a
complete
handshake
sequence.

PRO488 API
Just some of the HP style commands recognised
by PRO488's intelligent command handler.
PRO488 is feature rich, with a
wide range of commands from the
lowest level, of individual line
control, right up through single
word commands that perform or
initiate whole sequences of bus
actions.
Complete
worked
examples,
source code, make files, icons,
everything you need in each of
Visual Basic, QuickC for Windows,
Visual C++, Borland C++ and Turbo
Pascal for Windows.
