The PCI-1671UP IEEE-488 interface converts any PCI bus personal computer into an instrumentation control and data acquisition system. Connect up to 14 instruments using standard
IEEE-488 cables such as the PCL-10488-2, 2 meter IEEE-488 interface cable. The PCI-1671UP transfers data over the GPIB at rates in excess of 1.5 million bytes per second using
the maximum IEEE-488 specification cable length (2 meters times the # of devices). A 1,024-word FIFO buffer and the advanced REP-INSW ISR data transfer method provide the
horsepower required to then transfer the data between the GPIB board and the host computer. The high-speed state machine also provides byte-to-word packing and unpacking, and
because words carry twice the information that bytes do, packed data requires fewer bus cycles to transfer the same GPIB information.
The PCI-1671UP adheres to ANSI/IEEE Standard 488-1978. Often referred to as the IEEE-488.2 bus, GPIB bus or HP-IB bus, the GPIB (General Purpose Interface Bus) is a standard
for instrumentation communication and control for instruments from manufacturers the world over. The GPIB provides handshaking and interface communications over an 8-bit data
bus employing 5 control and 3 handshake signals. Equipped with PCI-1671UP, a personal computer can control GPIB instruments, gather data from GPIB test equipment, or become
a data acquisition station in a GPIB system.
