Issue Details

I would like to use a GPIB communication protocol to send commands to an instrument in a given, small amount of time, every time. Is this possible?

Solution

GPIB is not a deterministic form of communication. It cannot be guaranteed how long it will take a GPIB command to be sent from a non-deterministic OS to an external device.
