From what I've seen about GP-IB, or even HP-IB, the commands are very
similar across families of products, i.e. sweep speed, trigger mode,
vertical deflection etc. If you find a programming manual for one, it'll
probably work well for yours.
I'm waiting for HP to deliver a serial interface for my spectrum analyzer. I
decided to convert it from GP-IB to RS-232 because it seemed too expensive
to get a GP-IB PCMCIA interface for my laptop. Never thought to convert
GP-IB to serial. Probably equally cost effective but more universal. Glad I
read this message !
