What can you expect from a high-speed and
high-density switching system that’s this affordable ?
Performance you can trust
While traditional switching mainframes open/close
relays in sequence, the HP 3499A/B use innovative
parallel driving circuits to open/close switches
simultaneously. The HP 3499A can drive up to 50
channels in 25 ms. The parallel operation of the HP
3499A/B significantly increases the test throughput of
an automated test system.
HP 3499 family also provides high-density modules with
up to 40 channels per module. Two multi-function
modules integrate switching and digital I/O in one
module and enhance system performance.
Powerful flexibility to get your job done
We put in a lot of effort to make the HP 3499 switching
family products as flexible as possible, so that it can be
tailored to meet your needs.
HP 3499 family includes two mainframes. HP 3499A is a
5-slot mainframe and HP 3499B, a 2-slot mainframe.
These two mainframes will accommodate a full range
of 19 different modules, including multiplexer, general
purpose relay, matrix, digital I/O, VHF module, RF
module, microwave module, Form-C relay, and two
special multifunction modules. By combining these
mainframes and modules, test engineers can set up
their test system with fewer modules in less space and
also reduce the cost and complexity of the test system.
HP 3499 Family Main Features

increase test throughput without adding floor
space.
"Just enough" functionality. Wide range of
modules to select from.
Multi-function modules integrating switching
and digital I/O.

High-speed and high-density switching solution ideal for automatic test
Customize your test system
with 2 mainframes and 19 modules
Easy wiring with versatile module connection
accessories
Test engineers want "just enough" testing and do not
want to pay extra for something they do not plan to use
immediately. The 2 mainframes and 19 modules allow
you to customize the HP 3499 switch and control
system to meet your unique requirements. Buy only
what you need - and add more modules later as your
application grows.
We understand that wiring requires a lot of your time
and energy, and the HP 3499 switching products have
been designed to make it easier for you. The HP 3499
family provides two connection accessories to minimize
your wiring time and effort. Both the removable screw
terminal blocks and crimp & insert terminal blocks are
detachable from the switching modules, eliminating the
need for rewiring the connector if a switching module
is replaced.
The HP 3499 family allows the user to select a costeffective configuration for specific applications. Newly
designed high density switch modules reduce cost by
compacting a large number of channels on a single
module. The HP 3499A contains 5 slots that can
accommodate up to 200 channels switching for those
large switching applications on the manufacturing floor.
The HP 3499B contains 2 slots for switching up to 80
channels, a cost-effective solution for small
manufacturing or desktop applications. Both units are
designed for easy installation in a standard rack.
The six high-density modules use industry standard
DIN96 connectors for better flexibility. The modules
are equipped with DIN96-to-D50(25) cables for easy
connection to the DUT and test instruments. Using
these cables, you have completely eliminated all wiring.
Use high-density modules or multifunction modules to
save money and space
HP 3499 family provides modules that contain up to 40
switching channels per module. This will greatly reduce
the per channel cost and save rack and floor space. Test
engineers can set up the test system with fewer
modules using less space and also reduce the cost and
complexity of the test system. The result is that users
spend less money without sacrificing performance and
quality.
Two multifunction modules are also introduced along
with the HP 3499 family. The N2264A includes 12
general purpose relay channels, 3 high current general
purpose relay channels, and 16 bits of digital I/O. The
N2265A combines a 4x4 matrix switch with 16 bits of
digital I/O on one module. With HP 3499B, users can
configure a small but versatile switching/control test
system. The 3 power relay channels in N2264A can
switch signals up to 5 A. These power relays are very
useful in test systems such as cellular phone test,
battery test and UPS test where only two or three high
current channels are required.

Built-in relay cycle counter
to facilitate test system maintenance
In a high-speed automatic test equipment (ATE)
system, unplanned downtime can be fatal to a highyield production line. To help test engineers perform
preventative maintenance by predicting relay end-oflife, there are built-in relay cycle counters on the 5
high-density switching modules, thereby avoiding
costly production line downtime. The relay cycle
counter automatically counts every individual relay
closure and stores the number in the on-board nonvolatile memory. A simple "DIAG: CYC? Chan. xx "
command recalls the total number of cycles for
individual relays, making scheduled preventative
maintenance possible.
Compatibility with HP 3488A
The HP 3499 family is both hardware and software
compatible to the world's most popular switch/control
unit -the HP 3488A. All 13 of the HP 3488A modules
will work in the HP 3499A/B mainframes. The HP
3499A/B can be operated with SCPI (Standard
Commands for Programmable Instruments) or the HP
3488A command sets. Upgrading from an HP 3488A to
an HP 3499A doubles your channel capacity and lowers
your cost per channel with no additional cost in
modules.
Take the guesswork
out of relay maintenance
The HP 3499A/B use our proprietary
relay maintenance systems to help you
predict relay end-of-life and avoid costly
production line down time. It
automatically counts every individual
switch closure and stores it in nonvolatile memory on each module. You can
query the total number of cycles on any
individual channel so you can schedule
maintenance and avoid random end-oflife failures.

Application examples
Cellular phone test
Pager Test
In a typical cellular phone final test system there is a
switch system, a GSM/CDMA test set, a DMM (digital
multimeter), a power supply, and a spectrum analyzer.
An HP 3499A with a multifunction module (N2264A), a
digital I/O module (N2263A), and a matrix module
(N2262A) provides the switching solution needed in
this test system. The 3 general purpose high current
relays in the N2264A switch the cellular phone power
supplies --- main battery, backup battery, or charger.
With the 3 relays on N2264A, the DMM tests the
sleeping, standby, and working current - between 0.1
mA and about 4 A. Eight bits of digital I/O drives the
external solenoid coils to simulate key pressing. Eight
additional bits of digital I/O are used to drive a coaxial
relay to route the RF signal coming from the phone
antenna to GSM/CDMA test set for camping, call setup,
power level, BER test, or to spectrum analyzer for
spectrum leakage tests. Three more bits of digital I/O
are used to communicate with the cellular phone under
test. Working with the DMM, the matrix module
switches the voice signals to/from the cellular phone for
audio testing.
A typical test system that tests the pager PC board
consists of an HP 3499B equipped with one multiplexer
module (N2260A), one matrix module (N2262A), one
DMM, and one power supply. This compact test system
can test one pager. In this configuration, one 2-meter
rack is capable of holding 6-8 test systems. One matrix
channel switches the DUT (pager) on/off. Using a
multiplexer channel, the DMM tests the bias voltage of
the mixer, front-end amplifier, and filters to ensure that
the different circuits of the pager are working properly.
Using a multiplexer channel, the DMM also tests the
working/standby current to ensure the battery
operating time specification is met.

Customize your HP 3499A/B with plug-in modules
We invested a lot of time and energy in studying actual switching applications and tailoring the switching
modules for different applications. Six high density modules (HP N2260A, N2261A, N2262A, N2263A,
N2264A and N2265A) plus the 13 existing modules (HP 44470A/D, 44471A/D, 44472A, 44473A, 44474A,
44475A, 44476A/B, 44477A, and 44478A/B) for the HP 3488A can cover a wide variety of signals with
superior flexibility.
Different switching for applications
Six high density modules
A general purpose relay is used to turn on/off the DUT
(device under test), instruments, motors, pumps and
LEDs, or to form an attenuation network with L, C, R
components.
Now test engineers have a 40-channel 2-wire
multiplexer in roughly the same space as only one of
the HP 3488A's 10-channel switching modules. The six
high density modules reduce cost by compacting a large
number of channels on a single module. There are also
two multifunction modules for applications a that
require variety of functions in limited space. The
N2264A includes 12 general purpose relay channels, 3
high current channels and 16-bit digital I/O. The
N2265A includes a 4 x 4 matrix switch and 16-bit of
digital I/O. With these two modules and HP 3499B, the
half-rack-width mainframe, you will have a compact
switching unit in a small space and at a low cost!
A multiplexer is used for switching signal to
instrumentation by connecting many test points to an
instrument, or a DUT to many instruments. The
instruments can include multimeters, oscilloscopes,
spectrum analyzers, and counters, etc. There are onewire, two-wire, three-wire or four-wire multiplexers. A
one-wire multiplexer is very useful in high frequency
(30 MHz - 26 GHz) applications and common ended
signal switching. The two-wire multiplexer is very
useful for floating measurements where you need to
switch both the "high" and "low" paths. The three-wire
multiplexer is mostly used for the guarded
measurements that have very high CMRR (Common
Mode Rejection Ratio). The four-wire multiplexer is
mainly used for 4-wire precision ohm measurements.
A matrix switch is used when one or more instruments
are connected to one or more test points at the same
time. By using a matrix switch, you can connect any
point on a column to any point on a row. A matrix
switch offers maximum flexibility, but you need to use
more relays and be careful to avoid crosstalk between
channels.
A digital I/O module has both input & output bits for
digital sensing and is mainly used to control external
devices, such as motors, LEDs, and microwave relays.
The digital I/O can also be used to send and receive
digital patterns to/from the DUT, and to communicate
with other devices.

Flexible channel capacity
The 19 modules in HP 3499 family provide a large
variety of channel selections to match your test system
application (10-200 channels in one mainframe). The
total channel count ranges from 10, 20, to 40 channels
per module. You can customize your HP 3499A/B with
these modules to match the channel count and
switching topologies to meet your individual needs.
There are 19 plug-in modules, including multiplexer, RF multiplexer, general-purpose relay, matrix, digital input/output,
Form-C, breadboard, and multifunction modules. Please refer to the following table for plug-in module selection.

4 x 8 Matrix Switch Module
HP N2262A
Description
The HP N2262A is a 4 x 8 matrix module, containing 32 cross
points organized in a 4-row by 8-column configuration. It
provides the most convenient way to connect a group of test
instruments to multiple test points on DUTs. Each cross point
in the module switches 2 wires for the high and low of a
measurement. Multiple matrix modules can be connected
together for applications that require large matrixes. For
example, four N2262As can be combined as a 16 x 8 matrix.
HP N2262As can be used in conjunction with other modules
such as multiplexer modules to provide a wide variety of
switching combinations. More than one switch can be in closed
state, allowing any combination of rows connected to columns.
Up to 8 channels can be operated in parallel for high speed
switching. There are three accessories for ease of wiring.

• Triple 1-to-2 microwave multiplexers
HP 44476B
• Supporting varieties of microwave
coaxial relays
• Two sets of mounting holes for coaxial relays
Description
Description
The HP 44476A is a microwave switch module. There
are three independent SPDT 50 Ω coaxial relays with
excellent electrical performance from DC to 18 GHz.
For general purpose microwave switching applications,
the module can be used to switch separate signal
sources for a multi-band receiver/transmitter testing
application. The 3-mm SMA connectors on the module
edge are for ease of wiring.
The HP 44476B is a microwave relay driver module that
brings multi-port 50/75 Ω coaxial switching flexibility to
your test system. The HP 44476B panel has two sets of
mounting panels, so any two HP 876XX coaxial switches
can be mounted on this module. The HP coaxial switches
come in three-, four-, and five-port configurations. This
flexibility allows you to use the different switches for a
variety of applications, constructing transfer switches,
switch matrices, etc. Using the HP 876xx in conjunction
with the HP 44476B will allow you to extend your
automated three-port switching to 26.5 GHz. Coaxial
relays must be ordered separately. The HP coaxial
switches that can be used are listed below. The Option
011 designates the switches for a coil voltage of 5 V DC.

Dual 1 x 4 RF Multiplexer (1.3 GHz, 50/75Ω)
HP 44478A/B
• Switching up to 1 A, 24 W or 24 VA
• Insertion loss less than 1.9 dB @1.3 GHz
Description
The HP 44478A/B multiplexer module is an ideal choice
for broadband switching of high frequency or fast pulse
signals. Dual 1-to-4 mulitplexers provide bi-directional
switching of signals from DC to 1.3 GHz. High channel
isolation (>55 dB @ 1 GHz) assures quality dynamicrange measurements using spectrum, network, or
distortion analyzers. Each 1-to-4 multiplexer consists of
7 relays in a "tree" structure, which provides high
isolation and low VSWR (voltage standing wave ratio).
All the connectors on the module's edge are female
BNC for ease of wiring. Off-channels can be terminated
in resistors to maintain proper operation of DUT
circuitry. Simply plug a 50/75 Ω SMB type resistive
termination onto the on-board male SMB connector
provided for each channel.

Description
The HP 44477A is a Form-C relay module providing
seven independent Single-Pole-Double-Throw relays
for general purpose switching and control of external
devices. Using an external power supply, you can use
the module to drive remote RF, coaxial, and microwave
devices such as the HP 876xx, HP 8710xx series, and
mercury relays. This module is normally set up to use
an external power supply for voltages up to 250 V DC,
and can be easily configured to use the internal 5 V DC
power supply. In applications where the module's
voltage or current specifications are going to be
exceeded, use the module to drive a properly rated
external relay to switch those signals.
