They offer the integrated circuits for GPIB.
Some of them can be easily connected to some mikrocontroller (PIC or Atmel) and you can attach the RS-232/USB convertor to the uC UART.
I am thinking about the development of the GPIB convertor for a long time. But I am not sure if I am able to write the Windows/Linux driver for it.
