    What is "Multi Drop"? I saw the term used in conjunction with GPIB.
    I'm familiar with GPIB but never heard the term "Multi Drop" before.

    Just a way that a multiple number of devices can be connected on the
    same communications line..
    Normally, these devices all operate with open collector outputs so
    that any device can pull a line down with out electrically conflicting
    with others or, multiple devices can pull the line down etc..

    Since the RX electronics only requires a sinked input. This works out
    very well.

    It means a single "wire" or interface line (perhaps several individual
    "cables" or "wires") can go to many places, as opposed to a "single
    drop", which would be a point-to-point connection. It doesn't
    necessarily mean that each node can transmit and receive data.
    "Jamie", as usual, has everything wrong.

    Yeah sure, So i guess the fact that I have been servicing, installing,
    etc. equipment that uses the GPIB system, means I don't know what I'm
    talking about?
    Go stick it up your ass. You're about as clueless as a fucking donkey..
    Actually, I think a jack ass is more intelligent. So that just
    insults a Jack ass. If Dodo birds still existed, I would use that but
    since they don't, there must of been a reason for their extinction? you
    may want to rethink your actions in the future and not become a Dodo.

    If the poster wanted more detail information, I think they would of
    asked for it..
    Since the question to start with appear to be from one, that is
    almost as clueless as you are, I didn't want to overwhelm them with
    information they really wasn't prepared for. How ever, you on the other
    hand and those like you, have little mans disease. I can understand that
    since I've seen a lot of it in my life time. Its caused by being afraid
    that some one may find out that you are not what you portray yourself as to

    Keep it up, you only prove more each time that you're just a retarded
    immature nitwit, that kicks their feet when they don't get their way..

    Welcome to the new age of hand me out, brand dead, clueless, lazy
    social program loving scum bags, like yourself.

    Yes, that's you!..

    Useless to society and a waste of space you occupy..

    Its hard to believe, that little immature brain of yours can generate
    enough energy to operate that keyboard.

    No, you certainly do *not* know what you're talking about. You never
    have. How about those GFCIs that require a grounding conductor to
    Your brain cell is gone extinct, "Jamie".
    He didn't ask for *wrong* information, dolt.
    No, you tried to baffle them in bullshit, since you can't baffle a
    buffalo with your "brilliance", dolt.
    Hardly, just calling you the lame electrician that you are.
    You're projecting again, Krebs.
    No, you're describing Maynard "Jamie" Krebs and Dim AlwaysWrong Bulb.
    Hardly, dolt.
    It's hard to believe that you're still trying to get someone killed.
    Stay away from electricity, Maynard.
    I suppose you would be amazed at a slinky. Most 5 year olds are.
