Take advantage of GPIB capabilities

Keywords:General Purpose Interface Bus  FPGA  ASIC 

The IEEE 488 standard, better known as the General Purpose Interface Bus (GPIB), is a popular interface that connects instruments to computers to form ATE. Countless traditional GPIB devices now support hot-plug functionality and remote access to keep in pace with IP-based instruments that test engineers are more familiar with.

With advancements in EDA tools, the FPGA offers an alternative solution to expensive ASIC implementations. In the meantime, as more and more FPGA standards emerge and as verified IP cores become readily available from the Internet, building the GPIB protocol into FPGAs is already on the horizon and opens a promising opportunity for test and measurement applications.
