Update of ILPilbox to v1.4 - Christoph Giesselink - 06-17-2014 09:07 PM

ILPilbox v1.4 is a performance update. The speed with the loop controller on the real HP-IL side remain stable, but the transfer speed with the controller on the Virtual HP-IL side (i.e. Emu71/Win) had been increased between 10%-50% to version 1.3. 10% were measured on a very fast multi core host system, whereas the 50% were measured on a slow host system with a P4/3.2GHz.

The update is available at http://hp.giesselink.com/hpil.htm.

The absolute speed depends on various factors like the performance of the host PC, the PIL-Box firmware, the devices attached on HP-IL bus, ...

I was just about to try a JPC ROM file to real 71B transfer. It should come in handy.

Thanks, Christoph.

I just dropped it into my setup with multiple ILPer instances running on local PC and everything is OK. I have not done any performance testing, but all has worked perfectly.

Thanks Christoph!
