I have an HP E1406A VXI slot 0 controller. Can I use it to operate the synthesizer?
No, the HP E1406A is not supported. Designed in the early days of HP VXI as a controller for message-based instruments, it cannot handle the software or data bandwidth requirements of the HP E6432A. The HP E6432A is an A24/D32 VXI servant. The HP E1406A cannot support this. In order to calculate frequency data a floating-point processor is needed. The HP E1406A is based on a MC68000 processor that cannot do floating-point calculations.
