Where can I find manuals for discontinued and obsolete Hewlett-Packard and Agilent test equipment?
Most Agilent products have PDF manuals that can be found on product pages. Other vendors also supply old manuals.

FAQ 2013-11-22

What is the RF Test Blog?
RF engineers know that making good measurements is a challenge. The RF Test Blog was created as a resource for RF engineers to find ways to make better RF measurements.

FAQ 2013-10-28

What calibrations are available on X-Series, PSA, ESA analyzers and X-Series, ESG-C, PSG Signal Generators at time of initial sale from the factory?

FAQ 2013-10-15

When should I use Real-time Custom Modulation vs. Arb Custom Moduation vs. Creating my own IQ waveform?
It is always easier to use the real-time custom modulation mode inside the instrument until you run out of the flexibility.

FAQ 2013-08-14

How do I get the N5162A, N5182A, N5172B, N5182B default waveform files from Agilent and download them into the instrument memory?
The arbitrary waveform files are stored in the non-volatile memory of the N5182A/N5162A MXG when they ship out of the factory. In case these waveform files are accidentally deleted, a user can retrieve them through either of the following methods...

FAQ 2013-08-14

How do I find the HOST ID of my instrument or PC?
Agilent software options are licensed to many different types of hardware, using a unique hardware identifier called the Host ID. The Host ID is composed of 1, 2, or 3 elements, depending upon the software model and the target hardware platform.

FAQ 2013-05-07

Is the performance of 0.4% EVM for 160 MHz 802.11ac best test result or average performance for N5182B MXG or N5172B EXG X-Series signal generators?
0.4% EVM is characteristic data of a small sample of N5182B MXG signal generators using the PXA and VSA 89601B.

FAQ 2012-12-26

How long is the factory channel correction calibration good?
The factory channel correction lasts the life of the source.

FAQ 2012-12-26

Do User channel corrections cover multiple attenuator steps?
Yes. Bypass step, 0 dB step, and 5 dB step.

FAQ 2012-12-26

For User channel correction calibration, is it better to do a spot user cal or over an overlapping range?
Overlapping is good idea, but not required.

FAQ 2012-12-26

For User channel correction calibration, when frequency is tuned out of “user” correction frequency range, is factory correction applied?
Yes, we apply smoothing between cal arrays to ensure no discontinuity.

FAQ 2012-12-26

Can running user correction calibration over a narrower range improve calibration?
No, the number of points is always fixed at a 5 MHz interval

FAQ 2012-12-26

Are there any S1 S2 measurements with power sensors on the X-Series signal generators?
No, however, the “User” channel correction routine in X-Series vector signal generators measures DUT channel response in phase and amplitude with power sensor.
