How do I upgrade my N9048B PXE EMI Receiver?


Most all of the N9048B options that are sold at the time of instrument purchase are also available as an upgrade option. The upgrades are either Software Licensed Options or Measurement Applications. The upgrade contents are described in the tables below as License Key. Kits will contain the installation instructions. A license key will be required to activate the hardware option or measurement application. Upgrade options are categorized as:

  • Internal Hardware Upgrades (Ex. PFR, YAS)
  • Instrument Software (Ex. Instrument Software & Measurement Applications, SF1)

Internal Hardware Upgrades:

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

  1. View the installation instructions by selecting the "Available" links in the tables below for the desired upgrade option.
  2. Determine from the installation instructions the complexity of the installation and whether you will perform the upgrade yourself or have a Keysight Service Center do it for you.

X-Series Performance Verification Tests  

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 PXE 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
