What's New!

Version E.13.00 (July 2017)

  1. 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.
    As 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
    the maximum power range of the power sensors used. Note that the power meter may
    overrange, but this is anticipated by the new measurement and does not indicate a
    problem.

  2. Changes to supported ETE (electronic test equipment)
    - Added the 33611A, 33612A, 33621A, and 33622A as alternatives for the Function Generator
    for all applicable tests.
    - Added the 34470A as an alternative Digital Multimeter for all applicable tests.
    - Added the N1045A and N1055A as alternative oscilloscope plug-ins for use with the
    86100D mainframe.
    - Added the E8663D as an alternative reference source for the Single Sideband
    Phase Noise test.
    - Added the U8481A Option 200 and U8485A Option 200 as alternative low frequency
    power sensors for all applicable performance verification tests. Added the
    U8487A and U8488A as alternative high frequency sensors for all applicable
    performance verification tests. These sensors are not supported for adjustments.
    (Note that these sensors require the N1914A Option 201 power meter
    for operation.)

  3. 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
    model and serial number. Legacy 848x sensors lacking this capability have their
    channel assignment detected during the sensor calibration process. Please see
    "Known issues" regarding the potential misidentification of legacy sensors
    and its resolution. Note that this functionality does not apply to adjustments.

  4. The procedure for the Single Sideband Phase Noise test was updated to a more
    standardized procedure applicable across all signal source product lines.

  5. Updated the report template to conform with the Keysight
    Instrument Calibration Report Standard Reference.

  6. Defects Fixed:
    - Updated uncertainty calculations to include multimeter Tcal drift.
