Abstract:

The objective of this thesis is to examine the uses of a General Purpose Interface bus GPIB to link a microcomputer controller to computer-controllable test equipment. The Hewlett-Packard HP-85 microcomputer is examined as the system controller. The test equipment is configured to conduct basic electronic laboratories and the results are compared with current manually-controlled test equipment. Test equipments evaluated include The Wavetek Model 270 programmable function generator, Tektronix DC5009 programmable countertimer, Tektronix DM5010 programmable digital multimeter, Tektronix PS5010 programmable logic analyzer, and the Photodyne Model 488XII GPIB interface with digital power meter. These equipments and others are evaluated singlely and in combination. Various methods for displaying and plotting acquired data are discussed and evaluated. Keyword Computer program. Author
