The GPIB interface, also known by its IEEE standard number as IEEE-488, is a short-range, 8-bit parallel digital communications bus created as HP-IB (Hewlett-Packard Interface Bus) in the late 1960s for use with automated test equipment.

The original specification allows for speeds up to 1 MByte/s but this was rarely achieved.
