8712ES/ET and 8714ES/ET Network Analyzer Firmware Upgrade, Rev E.06.02
This firmware upgrade is intended to be downloaded to a PC. It is only to be used with 8712ET, 8712ES, 8714ET, and 8714ES Network Analyzers.
The following procedure downloads a compressed file to a PC then creates the two floppy disks that are necessary for acutally loading the firmware into the network analyzer. The floppy disks for this version of the firmware are DOS format, unlike the LIF format for earlier models of the network analyzer. Before starting this procedure, be sure to have two freshly formatted high density (1.44 MB) floppy disks available.
Procedure for Downloading the Firmware in DOS Format
- Click on the hyperlink at the end of these instructions, "Firmware Revision E.06.02". Depending upon your specific web browser setup, you may be asked where you want to place the file. Choose some location on your HARD disk. For example, use "C:\temp" as the directory and "e_06_02.exe" as the filename.
- Once the file has transferred, you must change to its directory and execute the self-extracting ".exe" program. This will create two files: disk1.exe and disk2.exe.
- Insert an empty floppy disk into the PC then execute disk1.exe. Unzip it to "a:\". The first firmware disk will be created. Label the disk with "DISK 1" and the firmware revision number. Include the following warning on the disk label: "If upgrading from REV E.05.XX, first store correction constants to floppy disk". Set the write protect tab on the disk.
- Insert the other empty floppy disk into the PC then execute disk2.exe. Again unzip to "a:\". The second firmware disk will be created. Label the disk with "DISK 2" and the firmware revision number. Set the write protect tab on the disk.
The firmware is now ready to be loaded into a network analyzer.
For a given analyzer, if you are upgrading from firmware version E.05.XX, store the correction constants to floppy disk prior to upgrading the firmware. Detailed instructions for storing the correction constants are contained in Chapter 8 of the Service Guide. To access the Service Guide on-line, go to www.keysight.com and search for part number 08714-90017. Search in the "Test & Measurement" category if necessary. (The Service Guide may indicate that storing correction constants is not necessary, ignore this information and store the correction constants.)
To install the firmware, insert the "DISK 1" floppy disk into the analyzer's floppy drive and cycle power. The analyzer will automatically find the firmware and prompt you to begin the installation process. During the installation process, you will be prompted to insert "DISK 2". The entire installation process takes approximately 15 minutes.
If it is necessary to reload the correction constants following the firmware upgrade, the user will be prompted to load the correction constants on the next power cycle.
