GPIB Breakout Board
« on: April 25, 2024, 03:52:58 am »
I have made my own piece of test equipment.  It is a GPIB breakout board.  It plugs directly into the HP Logic Analyser cable so no messing around with individual probes.  Just plug and play.  It would be easy to make up a cable to adapt the GPIB breakout connector to another make/model of LA.

In addition, the signals are also exposed on a separate header.

I have made the first GPIB breakout board and updated the pcbway share project, available for ordering your own board ( [url=https://www.pcbway.com/project/shareproject/GPIB_Break_Out_Board_f7812b3e.html]PCB from PCBWay[/url] ).

I now have 4x spare boards and parts available for sale.  Cheaper than buying parts and boards for one, like I have done.

I am selling the parts as a kit for assembly.  Just requires a soldering iron and some time. 

To calculate the shipping cost, go to this website: https://www.nzpost.co.nz/tools/rate-finder/sending-internationally/parcels] [url]https://www.nzpost.co.nz/tools/rate-finder/sending-internationally/parcels[/url]  for a Size 1 box from Wellington.

This may damage the logic analyzer (4V max typical). There must be a proper 10:1 termination network on your PCB or use a HP/Agilent 01650-63203
Termination Adaptor.

I have designed a new version with the termination network included in the breakout board.  Just waiting for the pcbs to be delivered.
