The Keysight (former Agilent) 82350B is a low-cost, high-performance HP-IB (IEEE-488) interface and software for PCI-based PCs. The 82350B makes it easy to access and control instruments and exchange data using HTBasic or HP BASIC.

This is a high-speed PCI card with built-in buffering, which de-couples GPIB transfers from the PCI bus transfers. Buffering provides I/O and system performance that is superior to direct memory access (DMA)-up to 900 KB/s.

The Keysight 82350B GPIB Interface is fully compatible with Windows Vista and Windows 7 including 64 Bit support.

Compatibility and Flexibility

The 82350B comes with SICL and VISA software for Windows 98/Me and Windows NT4/2000/XP. This software is compatible with all previous versions of SICL/VISA. The hardware is software configurable and compatible with the plug&play standard for easy hardware installation.

The GPIB interface card plugs into a PCI slot in the backplane of your PC. Via a GPIB cable, this card connects to GPIB instruments. For VXI applications a GPIB cable connects the card to the command module in Slot 0 of the VXI mainframe.
