Original Press Release:
A Cost-Cutting GPIB Card with a PCI Interface
The new PCI-1670 is designed to cut-costs for instrument makers and researchers that need high-performance GPIB cards
Cincinnati, Ohio - Complementing its line of GPIB interface boards, Advantech has launched the PCI-1670 with a PCI 2.1 bus specification that is fully compatible with IEEE 488.1 and 488.2. Furthermore, driver support is provided for a wide range of libraries used by popular programming languages such as, Visual C++®, Borland C++ Builder®,LabWindows/CVI®, Visual Basic®, Delphi® and LabVIEW®. Commands similar to those used by National Instruments® have been provided to help programmers that are familiar with LabVIEW® and LabWindows/CVI®.
With two driver control modes (controller mode and slave mode) the PCI-1670 can perform the talker, listener and controller functions required by IEEE 488.2. The card's high performance makes it possible to connect up to 15 GPIB instruments, so PCI-1670 is especially suitable for instrument measurement and control. Powerful testing features and a configuration tool allows users to easily access and control instruments.
PCI-1670 is available for Windows® 95/98/NT/ME/2000/XP® and MS-DOS®, with full support for drivers and libraries. To facilitate driver development, the PCI-1670 comes with sample drivers programmed in: Visual C++, Borland C++ Builder,LabWindows/CVI, Visual Basic, Delphi and LabVIEW.
PCI-1670 has a comprehensive supplementary controller driver database, and you can use an interactive GPIB interface to control devices directly without any need of programming. Compatible with National Instrument's PCI-GPIB card, the PCI-1670 represents a cost-effective alternative for LabVIEW users that utilize GPIB applications.
