    Hi there,

    One year ago, you showed us the new PCB you received from the factory for your GPIB-USB bridge. Any update since ?

    I’d love to see the Schlumberger Stabilock 4040 controlled from your computer. I did control one in the late 80’s. The Apple 2GS the company had did not comply well with the IEEE-488 card designed for it so I brought my own personal Apple //e and wrote a BASIC program to print a standard form for each 80MHz transmitter-receiver we delivered to the fire department of the county.

    Very good job , one question is possible to have schematic and code , or better did you build a kit for this project.
    thanks in advance .
    Best regard
