  • I have tried the USB-GPIB interface with four devices, an HP8752B vector network analyzer, a Tektronix TDS430 digital oscilloscope, a Panasonic VP8191 synthesized signal generator and an HP87510A gain-phase analyzer (actually a vector network analyzer by another name.)
    All but the 87510A worked perfectly. I found a problem when attempting to write to the plotter emulator (PrintCapture.) When I inquired about the incompatibility, I was given immediate attention by the USB-GPIB\'s developer, who worked with me (including providing special test software to analyze the problem.) The incompatibility (which apparently derives from a non-standard way the 87510A handled a plotter status request command) is now fixed.
    I can highly recommend the USB-GPIB adapter. A great product at a reasonable price. And fantastic support from the product's developer.
    My only ding is that the board really needs a case for mechanical protection and locking screws so that it can be firmly attached to the test equipment. I hope that a future revision will address the mechanical issue.

No public wish lists :(
