I have several "older" instruments, acquired through ebay. They all can plot via their GPIB bus. I gather it is possible to run software on a PC that emulates a HP plotter, and so capture the result.
What are the current recommended GPIB cards to do this? The "standard" seems to be NI cards (ISA and PCI). These are quite expensive, although seem to turn up on ebay. Any others? A low cost USB type would be nice (if they exist), but unsure about compatibility with available software.
Has anyone programmed one of the USB microcontrollers to bit-bang GPIB, and fit it into a GPIB plug?
