Here's the Complete Guide to the IEEE-488 Bus and its Applications. Reflecting the latest IEEE-488.2 standards, this it the one book you need if you work with design systems using the IEEE-488 general purpose instrumentation bus (GPIB). Written by a working designer of IEEE-488 installations, this book covers GPIB addressing and communications...the complete IEEE-488 protocol...hardware (including modems, expanders, and extenders)...GPIB instruments and their functions...programming...and much more. You'll also discover how to: * increase GPIB system performance * implement "human friendly" system interfaces * use "Tektronix standard" codes and formats. Author Anthony Caristi draws upon his wide experience with IEEE-488 applications to provide several examples of how real-world GPIB systems are designed, installed, and maintained. In addition, nine appendices provide quick reference to such vital information as IEEE-488.2 commands and queries and the electrical and mechanical specificatins for IEEE-488 systems. This book will be your essential reference to IEEE-488 systems and standards.Caristi, Anthony J. is the author of 'Ieee-488 General Purpose Instrumentation Bus Manual' with ISBN 9780121598204 and ISBN 0121598209.
