The GPIB or General Purpose Interface Bus or IEEE 488 bus is still one of the more popular and versatile interface standards available today.

GPIB is widely used for enabling electronics test equipment to be controlled remotely, although it was also used in a many other applications including general computer communications.

Today most bench electronics test equipment has either a GPIB option or are fitted with it as standard. Even though it has been surpassed by other technologies, it has become so much of a standard, that even now it is fitted often as standard.
