USB and PCMCIA IEEE-488 Controllers
The CEC USB-488 is a compact, full-function IEEE-488.2 controller which can be used with any Windows computer with a USB port. The PCMCIA-488 is a high-performance IEEE 488.2 interface for laptop and notebook computers with a PCMCIA (PC Card) slot. Both controllers are plug and play, and can control up to 14 programmable IEEE 488, GPIB, and HP-IB instruments. The small size and light weight make these controllers suitable for portable applications using a laptop computer or other applications where the computer has no available I/O slots. The CEC 488 driver software for Windows includes support for these two controllers and maintains backward compatibility with existing applications. The driver also includes compatibility software which allows drop-in compatibility with existing applications written for GPIB controllers from ines, Measurement Computing, ICS Electronics, IOtech and National Instruments. No new source code or recompiling is necessary. The CEC 488 driver works with application development environments like TestPoint, National Instruments LabVIEW and LabWindows/CVI, and Agilent VEE. The driver also supports VISA. CEC IEEE-488 products also support every popular programming language like C, C++, Visual Basic, Delphi and even DOS languages like QBASIC. The products also include sample programs and full source code.
