Control Interface to PC Ports

PC based Instrumentation is easy to implement using tools and cards of National Instruments - Test and Measurement. Most instruments can communicate with PC on the GPIB interface.

You can start by learning to use the parallel port and serial port. MIDI-Game port also has enough to help you start, learn computer interfacing at home. Try a small easy experiment RS-232 Powered Temperature Sensor.
