How do I upgrade my N9041B UXA Signal Analyzer?

Most all of the UXA options that are sold at the time of instrument purchase are also available as an upgrade option. The upgrade contents are listed in the tables below as Hardware, Software, License Key, or some combination of the three.  Hardware retrofit kits will contain the assemblies to be installed as well as the installation instructions.  In many cases a license key will be required to activate the hardware option or measurement application.

Upgrade options are categorized as:

  • Internal Hardware Upgrades (Ex. Preamplifier or 40 MHz Analysis Bandwidth)
  • External Hardware Upgrades (Ex. Rackmount Kit or Minimum Loss Pad)
  • Instrument Software (Ex. Instrument Software Download File or Measurement Applications)

Internal Hardware Upgrades:

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

  1. Go to the "Installed By" column and read the installed by defininition.
  2. View the installation note if available by selecting the "Install Note" links in the tables below for the desired upgrade option.
  3. Determine from the Installed By definition and 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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 an Keysight Service Center do it for you.
  • UXA Adjustments (Not Available)
  • UXA Performance Verification Tests (Not Available)

If an upgrade option is going to be installed by a 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 (Not Available)

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