General Purpose Interface Bus. Also known as IEEE-488 bus. The GPIB standard was designed to connect several instruments to computers for data acquisition and control. Data can be transferred over GPIB at 200000 bytes per second.
General Purpose Interface Bus, originally developed by Hewlett-Packard and designated HP-IB. Also known as IEEE-488, this bus is an industry standard used to interface a wide assortment of instruments to computers.
general purpose interface bus. A 24-pin parallel interface bus that conforms to the IEEE 488 interface definition standard, often used to connect scientific instruments together or to a computer. Originally developed by Hewlett-Packard, a GPIB is also known as the Hewlett-Packard Interface Bus(HPIB).
General Purpose Interface bus, also known as HP-IB. The standard bus used for controlling electronic instruments with a computer. Also called IEEE 488 bus because it is defined by ANSI/IEEE Standards 488-1978, and 488.2-1987.
