vrf Speedup the GPIB Transmission

Question asked by VRFuser on May 22, 2000
Hello Juergen,

You may get a small imrpovement using C, but it will
probably be negligible compared to a VEE implementation
using either direct I/O or VXIp&p drivers.

Some possible speed-ups are:

1.  Is the data transfer ASCII?  If so, is it possible to
do a binary data transfer - this will be faster!

2.  Are GPIB cable lengths within spec?  Long cable runs or
excessive loading will cause slower tx speeds.
