   I do. It's basicly a card cage that you buy and then stuff with various optional IO cards. There are a lot of different cards for it and they include things like digital inputs, digital output, analog input and output cards, counters, programmable frequency and signal type (square wave, sine wave, etc etc) output cards, relay closure cards and many others. The 6942 is much more desirable than the older 6940 since it has a hP-IB port built-in and can be directly controlled by HP-IB. The 6940 used a parallel port interface but you could buy an optional HP-IB interface (separate unit).
