concurrently, or a combination
of 4 programmable attenuators
and 4 SPDT switches
• Multiple connectivity options:
GPIB, USB or LAN
for easy remote integration
• An integrated, tri-voltage
power supply saves rack
space (11713C only)

any type of switch and provides
forward compatibility for switches
• Full backward compatibility with
the Agilent 11713A
• Built-in counter monitors the life
cycle of attenuators and switches
Description
The Agilent 11713B/C attenuator/switch
drivers provide remote or front panel drive
control for programmable attenuators and
electromechanical or solid state switches.
Designed with both benchtop and ATE
environments in mind, these attenuator/
switch drivers provide an intuitive user
interface, a variety of switching options,
software programmability and remote
control features for quick, easy design
validation and automated testing. Front
panel push-buttons and an easy-to-read
LCD display simplify setup of functions such
as voltage, TTL functions, IP address, etc.
The 11713B/C is a LXI Class C compliant
instrument, so it can be easily controlled
and triggered remotely using a full-featured
graphical web interface. This feature is
used in high-volume production environments. Software instrument drivers such
as IVI-COM provide programming compatibility with popular application development
environments and support PC industry
standards such as Component Object
Model (COM). Standard GPIB connectivity
supports automated programmed scripting
and ensures backward compatibility to
Agilent 11713A attenuator/switch drivers.
These portable instruments come in a
half-rack, 2U design with self-contained
current limiting power supplies. The
11713C model also includes integrated
tri-voltage supplies of 5, 15 & 24V and a
user-defined external input voltage capability
to ensure 100% biasing compatibility to
most relays in the market. The 11713C
has two individual banks of outputs each
with an independent voltage drive. Fast
TTL drive is also available on the 11713C,
with either via the Viking connector ports
or the S0/S9 ports.
