Version E.06.00 (April 2017)
- Changed the Maximum Leveled Output Power test to Maximum
Output Power. This
reflects a change in measurement
methodology that conforms to that used in production.
a result, the reported maximum output power will give a
better indication of
the signal generator's performance,
although measured values will be limited to
power range of the power sensors used. Note that the power
overrange, but this is anticipated by the new
measurement and does not indicate a
- Changes to supported ETE (electronic test equipment)
- Added the U8481A Option 200 and U8485A Option 200 as
alternative power sensors for all
verification tests. These sensors are not supported
adjustments. (Note that these sensors require the N1914A
Option 201 power meter
- Added the
33611A, 33612A, 33621A, and 33622A as alternatives for the
Function Generator for all applicable tests.
the 34470A as an alternative Digital Multimeter for for all
applicable tests with the exception of the FM/PM YO
adjustment. This adjustment cannot
support the 34470A.
- Added the N5182A, N5182B, and
N5172B as alternative external baseband
Digital Modulation Power Level Accuracy Relative to CW.
Added the E8663D as an alternative reference source for the
Phase Noise and Residual FM tests.
Added the PXA N9030B as an alternative for performance
and adjustments that support the
- The following limitations apply:
combination of 8902A and 8903B can be used as an
alternative for PSA opt 233 in analog modulation tests to
achieve PSA replacement with PXA for Performance
tests, however, the 8902A/8903B are now
- Updated connection checks for adjustments to allow the
option to ignore failed connection checks.
- Performance Verification tests that use the power
meter/power sensor no longer
depend on fixed channel
assignments for a given power sensor but instead detect
the channel that the power sensor is connected to by relying
on the ability of
"smart" sensors such as the N848x,
U848x, E940x series to report their full
serial number. Legacy 848x sensors lacking this capability
channel assignment detected during the sensor
calibration process. Please see
"Known issues" regarding
the potential misidentification of legacy sensors
its resolution. Note that this functionality does not apply
- Defects Fixed:
- Updated uncertainty calculations to
include multimeter Tcal drift.
- Fixed a FM Scale DAC
Offset Adjustment connection check issue.
- Fixed an
issue with Power Level Accuracy with the PSA displaying an
error message during the test by limiting the resolution
of the PSA to 2 Hz.
