N9010A EXA Signal Analyzer Upgrades

UpgradeMost all of the N9010A options that are sold at the time of instrument purchase are also available as an upgrade option. The upgrade option details can be found in the upgrade tables below.  It is advisable that you view each row for the upgrade of interest, select and read any linked items and view the installation note details before purchasing and installing the upgrade.  In many cases a license key will be required to activate the internal hardware upgrades.  The license certificate and web access is required to redeem a license key.  The upgrade sections are divided into three categories as follows:

  • Internal Hardware Upgrades (Ex. Internal Preamplifier or Fine Step Attenuator)
  • External Hardware Upgrades (Ex. Rackmount Kits or Hard Transit Case)
  • Instrument Software (Ex. Instrument Software or Measurement Application links)

Internal Hardware Upgrades:

Before a hardware upgrade is purchased the following steps should be taken:

  1. View the installation notes by selecting the "Available" links in the tables below for the desired upgrade option.
  2. Determine from the installation note the complexity of the installation and whether you will perform the upgrade yourself or have a Keysight Service Center do it for you.
  3. Review the Utilities, Adjustments & Performance Verification Tests section of the installation note to see what the required adjustments and performance tests are once the upgrade is installed.
  4. Review the following lists of test equipment requirements for each required adjustment and performance test to further determine whether you have the ability to perform the upgrade yourself or have a Keysight Service Center do it for you.

If an upgrade option is going to be installed by an Keysight Service Center, additional labor charges will apply. Your Keysight field engineer can provide an all inclusive quote for this.

All instrument adjustments are automated and require the use of the Keysight Performance Verification & Adjustment Software.

Many hardware upgrades will require the redemption and installation of a license key file to activate the option. Once a redemption certificate is received the license key file can be redeemed at the Keysight Software License Redemption Website

1 While the completion of the recommended adjustments and performance tests for a given option upgrade does verify the functionality of the option, it does not guarantee that the entire instrument meets all published specifications. A full instrument calibration is the only way to guarantee that all instrument specifications are being met
2 The instrument calibration data file MUST be transferred in order for the analyzer to meet specifications. If the cal file is not transferred all adjustments and performance tests must be performed. Refer to the Installation Note for details
3 If MIMO or Single Acquisition Combined Measurements (-XFP options) are being performed, contact your local Keysight representative before upgrading
4 Upgrade can be performed by the User without any performance verification required if the instrument being upgraded is still within it's original factory calibration cycle and no major repairs or adjustments have been performed on it. See the upgrade installation note for more details.

Instrument Software

Instrument Software Update

The software update package for the X-Series Signal Analyzers contains the spectrum analyzer measurement application, all the advanced measurement application software, and all other updates required by the individual measurement assemblies inside the instrument.

Keysight recommends updating the instrument software version whenever an internal hardware upgrade or measurement application is installed into the analyzer.

The latest revision of the instrument software installer can be found at:

Measurement Applications:

To see the complete list of software measurement applications available for the N9020A Signal Analyzer see:

Measurement Applications require the redemption and installation of a license key file (.lic). Measurement application upgrades are meant to be performed by the customer, and no adjustments or performance verification tests are required.

In order to redeem a license key, the end user must have a valid redemption certificate and then go to the Keysight Software License Redemption Website
