FAQ 2014-08-01

How much programming compatibility does exist between 81101A, 81104A, 81110A and 81150A, 81160A?
The implemented 81150A, 81160A SCPI command set is based on Keysight’s 81101A, 81104A, 81110A Pulse Pattern Generator product family. Therefore, most of the commands available for that instrument family are also available in the 81150A, 81160A models.

FAQ 2013-03-21

On my E8267D, I get an error that the signal requires more repeats than supported, can I increase this limit with the internal baseband option?
No. To increase the number of pulse capacity either upgrade to an External Baseband option with the N8241A AWG or ...

What is the Variable Baseline option 001 of the 8114A?
In a standard 8114A, the baseline is fixed at 0 V. The output pulses are positive or negative of this baseline according to polarity selected. To have a variable baseline from -25 V to +25 V, the 8114A must be fitted with option 001. The output si...

FAQ 2010-09-08

Using the 81150A as an arbitrary waveform generator
Although the 81150A is an arbitrary function generator (AFG), it can be used as an arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) with some limits. The key difference between an AFG and an AWG is how data for a digital-to-analog converter is internally genera...

81100 Family: Self test fails
The unit is not defective, this behavior is a result of the extensive self tests.

FAQ 2010-04-09

N4903A: Our N4903A lost all of its licensed options. Can they be recovered?
The licenses are tied to the Host ID. Since the unit has two ethernet cards, it may be that the wrong Host ID is being used to check licensing.

FAQ 2008-11-05

Why isn’t the screen bigger?
The screen is optimized for the “typical” engineering environment where the instrument is up on a lab desk you need to read the numbers from the screen from any angle. In case you need a bigger screen you can manage and control the instrument from...

FAQ 2008-02-21

What does channel add mean?
You can add the signal from one channel to the signal of the other channel this might be adding noise to a clean pulse, this might be a FM signal added with noise… The possibilities you have are huge.

FAQ 2008-01-29

How to upgrade from 1 to 2 channels
It is not possible to upgrade a 1 channel version to a 2 channel version. You have to decide from the beginning how many channels you need.

FAQ 2008-01-29

Why are you offering 3 instruments in 1? What if my customer needs only one of these instruments?
In addition to precise pulses and trigger customers need to stress the device to its limits. In the past they used either a second channel or an additional instrument to distort the signal. With the new build-in capabilities real-world signals can...

FAQ 2008-01-29

What is a crest factor?
The crest factor defines the ratio between Vp to RMS. The ideal sine wave for example has a crest factor of 1.414. Any crest factor higher than 1.414 shows additional noise, distortion or spikes. In addition the crest factor shows signal boundar...
