Original Press Release:
PXI IEEE 488 Interface Controller Card
The PXI-3488 is a PXI-bus GPIB card and features an easy drop-in system configuration for existing test and measurement applications.
Irvine, CA (January 31, 2006) - ADLINK Technology Inc., a leading provider of test and measurement products, released its first PXI IEEE 488 controller card. The PXI-3488 provides interface between GPIB instruments and PXI-equipped systems that is compliant with IEEE488.1 and IEEE488.2 standards.
The PXI-3488 is PXI bus compatible and represents ADLINK's innovations in PXI hardware design. It is suitable for most PXI platform and provides the connectivity between PXI platforms and GPIB instruments. In addition, the PXI-3488's 1KB on-board FIFO and high-speed bus accelerated by the on-board CPLD gives it a 1.5MB/s maximum data transfer rate to satisfy high-volume data transfer requirements.
The PXI-3488 has been hardware and software verified with a wide range of products and applications. It supports popular application development environments such as VB, VC++, Delphi, LabVIEW and TestExec and features "drop-in" system configuration to be compatible with existing test and measurement applications. The PXI-3488 supports Windows 98/NT/2000/XP and its driver library is compatible with industry standard VISA and instrumentation protocols.
