Chinese GPIB DIY Adapter and how to use??
« on: October 21, 2019, 02:22:38 pm »
Hi guys and girls,

i got a chinese DIY GPIB adapter to talk to my Fluke8840A but i don't know how to do it. It looks like there is a software on baidu but i cannot read anything and even with google translator it looks like i should download a client but i'm on linux... so no .exe thingies...

Maybe Wine... but maybe someboda knows how to use this thing or maybe some of our chinese freidns can download the software and provide it here?


This thing is it:

That thing is a clone from the Prologix GPIB Usb -



Yes I know the image is not the same as the adapter in question, but by the looks of it it uses the same chips and drivers.

The manual that was in the folder was added as an attachment to this topic.

Has someone the possibility to make this download?

I tried without success, as one needs to have the Baidu software installed, as well as a Baidu account, which I don't have.

Thanks,
Vitor

Thank you!

I ordered one of these Interfaces for the extremely low Price (under 20 Euro with shipping)!

My plan is to port my "VMA Simple Spectrum Analyser for HP859x Series" to use this interface natively without the Keysight Connection Expert software: https://vma-satellite.blogspot.com/2019/03/vma-simple-spectrum-analyser-hpagilent.html

I am curious if the speed of the interface is good enough to transfer the samples without too much of a delay.

Regards,
Vitor
