33600 Series Firmware

Keysight Technologies is pleased to offer free downloadable firmware updates containing enhanced features and bug fixes for your 33600 Series Waveform Generators. Using the Keysight Firmware Update Utility, updates to the 33600 Series Waveform Generators are available through the instrument’s LAN, GPIB, and USB IO ports, or front panel USB ‘host’ port.

Release Date Version Version Description
2018-12-14 2.00 Update to fix miscellaneous defects and include IQP as standard for 33612A, 33622A.

For this release, update the Current Version Tab for all 33600A models as shown:

The following changes have been made in firmware release 2.00:

  • Option IQP is now standard on the 33612A and 33622A. 33612A/22As upgraded to 2.0 without Option IQP previously installed will show the option as ‘Included’ in the System → Help → About window. 33612A/22As upgraded to 2.0 with Option IQP previously installed will continue to show ‘IQP’ as “Licensed”. There is no change in functionality. All other licensed options must be purchased.
  • Adds HTML5 emulation for additional instrument control options from the WebUI (user interface) for all 33600A series waveform generators. Selecting ‘Control Instrument’ on the WebUI enables selection of the control options.
     

How to Download

  • Click the Download button and select the file of interest. Save the file to your computer and note the directory where the file is saved. A firmware update installed over the LAN, GPIB, or USB interface is a file with a .upd extension.
    Unzip the file to access the .upd file. For updates using a front panel USB drive, the utility extracts the required files from the (unzipped) .upd file.

How to Install

  • From the utility directory or Start menu, start the utility (FWUpdate.exe). The utility will prompt you for the location of the .upd file. Follow the additional prompts to complete the installation.
    The update may take several seconds to complete and will reboot the instrument. After the update is complete, exit the utility.
  • It is not necessary to re-calibrate the instrument following a firmware-update; however, the instrument may need to be re-secured if it was unsecured to perform the update.

2015-12-16 1.11 Improved Linear and Log Sweep functions, SUM Modulation checks for excess voltage output, Risetime/Falltime in Pulse limited to 10 microseconds.

The following improvements have been made in firmware release 1.11:

• Log Sweep has been fixed to allow for low start and stop frequencies. Impossible log sweep combinations now detected and a “Settings Conflict” error is generated
• Linear Sweep has been fixed to allow for very small frequency spans (less than 0.1 Hz) with long sweep times (greater than 100 seconds). Impossible linear sweep combinations now detected and a “Settings Conflict” error is generated.
• Reduced brief transient voltage when power is turned off
• SUM Modulation checks for setups that would exceed output voltage limits
• Pulse Edge (Rise and Fall Time) limits are now enforced, cannot exceed 10 microseconds
