The compact NI GPIB-USB-HS transforms any computer with a USB port into a full-function, plug-and-play IEEE 488.2 controller for up to 14 programmable GPIB instruments. The GPIB-USB-HS takes advantage of Hi-Speed USB to provide superior performance of up to 1.8 MB/s with the standard IEEE 488 handshake and 7.7 MB/s with the high-speed IEEE 488 handshake (HS488). The small size and light weight of the GPIB-USB-HS make it ideal for portable applications using a laptop computer or other applications where the computer has no available internal I/O slots. The RoHS-compliant GPIB-USB-HS is shipped with NI-488.2 for Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux.
