N5106A PXB Baseband Generator and Channel Emulator Upgrades
Most of the N5106A PXB Baseband Generator and Channel Emulator options are available for post-sale retrofit. The upgrades are normally either a hardware option or measurement personality. Many of the measurement personalities are application specific and require additional hardware options.
Hardware upgrade kits contain installation instructions and the desired assembly. All upgrade assemblies are shipped from the factory fully calibrated.
More involved upgrades may require the instrument be shipped to the Agilent factory to have the upgrade installed. Make sure to obtain a quote for the installation before sending the instrument and upgrade kit to the Agilent factory to get installed.
The table below provides an Installation Note for each upgrade. With some upgrades Agilent recommends that the internal self test is performed. The installation note explains how to execute self test.
Hardware upgrades may require that a minimum firmware is already installed. Up-to-date firmware can be downloaded for free from the PXB Firmware Upgrade Center.
Some hardware upgrades may also require the redemption and installation of a license key before they will be activated. Once a redemption certificate is received, the license key(s) can be redeemed at the Software License Redemption Website.
