The PCI Card LPCI-3488A
The IEEE488 standard, also known as GPIB, is a bus interface that connects devices to a computer to form an ATE system. GPIB was originally developed by Hewlett Packard and was approved as an IEEE standard in 1978. The IEEE488.1-1978 standard defines the convention for electrical and mechanical bus characteristics, as well as the state diagram for each bus function. In 1987, another standard was derived from the original IEEE488.1-1978, which became known as IEEE488.2-1987. It was introduced to define data formats, common commands and control protocols for devices. In general, IEEE488.1 defines hardware specifications and IEEE488.2 defines software specifications. The IEEE488 standard has been widely accepted by equipment manufacturers over the past decades. Today, GPIB is still the most popular interface between computers and instruments.
