Description Attachments

The GPIB-USB Controller from Sparkfun is an exceptional device that allows you to control and download data from GPIB bus enabled instruments such as oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, function generators, power supplies, and more, all through a USB connection.

The controller is powered by the FT245R chip and supports a wide range of platforms. Drivers are available for Windows 7, 8, 10, 11, 98, 2000, ME, XP, Vista, Apple OS-8, OS-9, OS-X, Linux >2.4.0, and Free BSD. It's important to note that while drivers for Windows 98, 2000, ME, XP, and Vista are available, they are not actively updated.

One of the key features of this GPIB-USB Controller is its support for multiple devices. The driver provides a virtual serial port to send and receive data, making the data transfer process smooth and efficient. Plus, it's powered by USB, eliminating the need for an external power supply. Furthermore, it negates the need for a GPIB cable as the controller plugs directly onto the instrument.

What sets this controller apart is its all-software configuration - there are no DIP switches to worry about. It is compatible with both USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 and features standard USB (B) and IEEE 488 (Male) connectors. The device is compact, measuring only 7.62x6.35x2.29cm, making it easy to carry and use.
