IEEE-488 or IEC-625-Bus (standard international name) - created as HP-IB (short for Hewlett-Packard Interface Bus) or GPIB (short for General Purpose Interface Bus) - is not specific to the Commodore 64.

General[edit]

IEEE-488 is a hardware communications specification used on the older CBM/PET series. It can connected until 15 devices. The data transfer speed is 1 MByte/s. In 2004 the standard was renamed in IEEE 60488.1.

IEEE-488 is a connection standard shared by disk drives and printers and enabled the computer to communicate with these devices. There are several hardware adapters (such as IEEE Flash! 64) that were created for the Commodore 64 that enabled connection to these devices.
