Due to the limited availablity of 3.5" double density (720K) floppy disks, as well as the oboslesence of the equipment required to duplicate them, Keysight Technologies can no longer provide the Operation Verification and other various service related software on this media.

This software has always been provided on LIF formatted disks, as they have always been intended for use with HP 9000 Series controllers. Since these old computers cannot use DOS formatted disks changing to the DOS format would not help. Because of these factors we have decided to provide these software utilities as a free download.

To make some of these more flexible we are also providing the configuration utilities in formats that can also be run on a standard PC with either HT/HP Basic for Windows or VEE. If you do not own a copy of VEE you can download an evaluation copy from the Keysight Developers Network.


Caution: The configuration utilites that are provided here are only intended to be used when servicing an 8560 E or EC Series Spectrum Analyzer. Using them in any other capacity is not authorized or supported. Also, enabling an option in one of these instrument that does not have the required option hardware will cause problems with the instrument, and in some cases this will cause on-screen errors.
