GPIB is a standardized interface that allows you to connect and
control multiple devices from various vendors. Communication is
established through a VISA-GPIB object,
which you create in the MATLAB® workspace. For information about creating the VISA-GPIB
object, see Get Started with GPIB Interface.
You can write and read both binary and text data. For examples of both, see Write and Read GPIB Data.
