General Information
Introduction
This manual contains information required to test, troubleshoot, and repair
the Agilent E1351A, E1352A, E1353A, E1357A, and E1358A FET
Multiplexers. See the appropriate User’s Manual for additional information
on the Agilent E1351A, E1352A, E1353A, E1357A, and E1358A. Figure
1-1 shows the FET Multiplexers.

General Information 1-1
Safety
Considerations
This product is a Safety Class I instrument that is provided with a protective
earth terminal when installed in the mainframe. Check the mainframe, FET
Multiplexer, Terminal Block, and all related documentation for safety
markings and instructions before operation or service.
Refer to the WARNINGS page (page ii) in this manual for a summary of
safety information. Safety information for preventive maintenance, testing,
and service follows and is also found throughout this manual.
Warnings
WARNING
This section contains WARNINGS which must be followed for your
protection when performing equipment maintenance or repair.
SERVICE-TRAINED PERSONNEL ONLY. The information in this
manual is for service-trained personnel who are familiar with
electronic circuitry and are aware of the hazards involved. To
avoid personal injury or damage to the instrument, do not
perform procedures in this manual or do any servicing unless
you are qualified to do so.
CHECK MAINFRAME POWER SETTINGS. Before applying
power, verify that the mainframe setting matches the line
voltage and that the correct fuse is installed. An uninterruptible
safety earth ground must be provided from the main power
source to the supplied power cord set.
GROUNDING REQUIREMENTS. Interruption of the protective
(grounding) conductor (inside or outside the mainframe) or
disconnecting the protective earth terminal will cause a
potential shock hazard that could result in personal injury.
(Grounding one conductor of a two-conductor outlet is not
sufficient protection.)
IMPAIRED PROTECTION. Whenever it is likely that instrument
protection has been impaired, the mainframe must be made
inoperative and be secured against any unintended operation.
REMOVE POWER IF POSSIBLE. Some procedures in this
manual may be performed with power supplied to the
mainframe while protective covers are removed. Energy
available at many points may, if contacted, result in personal
injury. (If maintenance can be performed without power applied,
the power should be removed.)
1-2 General Information
WARNING
USING AUTOTRANSFORMERS. If the mainframe is to be
energized via an autotransformer (for voltage reduction) make
sure the common terminal is connected to neutral (that is, the
grounded side of the main’s supply).
CAPACITOR VOLTAGES. Capacitors inside the mainframe may
remain charged even when the mainframe has been
disconnected from its source of supply.
USE PROPER FUSES. For continued protection against fire
hazard, replace the line fuses only with fuses of the same
current rating and type (such as normal blow, time delay, etc.).
Do not use repaired fuses or short-circuited fuseholders.
Cautions
CAUTION
This section contains CAUTIONS which must be followed to avoid damage
to the equipment when performing instrument maintenance or repair.
MAXIMUM VOLTAGE/CURRENT. The maximum voltage that may
be applied between any connector pin and any other point, shield, or
chassis is 15 VPeak.
STATIC ELECTRICITY. Static electricity is a major cause of
component failure. To prevent damage to the electrical components in
the FET Multiplexer, observe anti-static techniques whenever working
on a FET Multiplexer.
General Information 1-3
FET Multiplexer
Description
The Agilent E1351A, E1352A, E1353A, E1357A, and E1358A FET
Multiplexer is an "instrument" in a VXIbus mainframe. As such, each FET
Multiplexer is assigned an error queue, input and output buffers, and a status
register.
NOTE
Instruments are based on the logical addresses of the plug-in modules. See
the Agilent 75000 Series B Installation and Getting Started Guide to set the
addresses to create an instrument.
The FET Multiplexer Module consists of a component assembly and a
terminal block. There are five different terminal blocks, one for each
application. The component assembly is the same for all applications. The
applications supported by the component assembly are:
•
•
•

Each terminal block configures the component assembly to the appropriate
type of switch. The terminal card also contains the model identification code
and installation of the terminal card before applying mainframe power
ensures that the type of switch is properly identified. Optionally, the model
identification can be set on the component assembly to allow it to be
correctly identified without a terminal card installed.

FET Multiplexers covered by this manual are identified by a serial number
prefix listed on the title page. Agilent Technologies uses a two-part serial
number in the form XXXXAYYYYY, where XXXX is the serial prefix, A
is the country of origin (A=USA), and YYYYY is the serial suffix. The
serial number prefix identifies a series of identical instruments. The serial
number suffix is assigned sequentially to each instrument.
The serial number plate is located on the backplane connector. If the serial
number prefix of your instrument is greater than the one listed on the title
page, a Manual Update (as required) will explain how to adapt this manual
to your instrument.

Verification Tests
Introduction
This chapter describes the verification tests for the Agilent E1351A,
E1352A, E1353A, E1357A, and E1358A. The three levels of test
procedures described in this chapter are used to verify that the Agilent
E1351A, E1352A, E1353A, E1357A, and E1358A:
• is functional (Functional Verification Test)
• meets selected testable specifications (Operation Verification)
• meets all testable specifications (Performance Verification)
Test Conditions/
Procedures
Performance
Test Record
Verification Test
Examples
See Table 1-1 for test equipment requirements. You should complete the
Performance Verification tests at least once a year. For heavy use or severe
operating environments, perform the tests more often. The verification tests
assume that the person performing the tests understands how to operate the
mainframe, the FET Multiplexer, and the specified test equipment. The test
procedures do not specify equipment settings for test equipment except in
general terms. It is assumed that a qualified, service-trained technician will
select and connect the fixtures, adapters, and probes required for the test.
The results of each Performance Verification test may be recorded in
Table 2-1, Performance Test Record, at the end of this chapter. You can
make a copy of this form, if desired.
Each verification test procedure includes an example program that performs
the test. All example programs assume the following configuration:

Verification
Test
The Functional Verification Test for the Agilent E1351A, E1352A,
E1353A, E1357A, and E1358A FET Multiplexers consists of sending the
*IDN? command and checking the response. This test can be used to verify
that the FET Multiplexer is connected properly and is responding to a basic
command.
Procedure
1. Verify that the FET Multiplexer is properly installed in the mainframe
2. Verify that the terminal block or test fixture is properly connected to
the Multiplexer
3. Verify that the mainframe has passed its power-on test
4. Send *IDN? to the FET Multiplexer (see example following)
5. The return should be as follows (revision number may vary):
HEWLETT-PACKARD,SWITCHBOX,0,A.07.00
NOTES
Example
If the primary address setting, secondary address setting, or the interface
select code is set incorrectly, the FET Multiplexer will not respond. Verify
proper address selection before troubleshooting.
An example follows which uses an HP 9000 Series 300 computer with
BASIC and a FET Multiplexer address of 70914.

Operation
Verification
Test
The procedures in this section are used to provide a high level of confidence
that the FET Multiplexer is meeting published specifications. The Operation
Verification Test is a subset of the Performance Verification Tests and is
suitable for checkout after performing repairs.
The Operation Verification Test is performed by completing the Closed
Channel Resistance Test (Test 2-1) as described in the Performance
Verification Test procedures. This test is usually sufficient to verify that the
FET Multiplexer is meeting its specifications.
Performance
Verification
Tests
The procedure in this section is used to test the FET Multiplexer’s electrical
performance using the specifications in Appendix A — Specifications of the
appropriate FET Multiplexer User’s Manual as the performance standard.
There are two performance verification tests; Test 2-1: Closed channel
Resistance Test, and Test 2-2: Leakage Test. These tests are suitable for
incoming inspection, troubleshooting, and preventive maintenance.
Test Fixture
A Test Fixture is required to run the Performance Verification tests. Figure
2-1 shows the connections using an Agilent E1351A Terminal Block for the
test fixture. The Agilent E1352A, E11353A, E1357A and E1358A
Terminal Blocks are not recommended as test fixtures. You may want to
order an extra terminal block to use as a test fixture, so you don’t have to

Example: Closed
Channel Resistance
Test
This example performs a closed channel resistance test of all measurement
paths. If a FET on resistance is >3.1 kΩ , the program prints a message
indicating which channel has failed. Before the closed channel
measurement, the program checks for stuck channels. If a stuck channel is
found, the program prints a message and halts.

Test 2-2: Leakage
Test
HI to LO Leakage
The test verifies the input impedance by measuring the voltage drop across a
known resistor in series with the input impedance. Leakage is measured
from HI to LO, HI to Chassis, and LO to Chassis. Because of the solid state
nature of the switches and input protection, the leakage is measured at both
+10 Vdc and -10 Vdc.

Performance
Test Record
Table 2-1, Performance Test Record, is a form you can copy and use to
record performance verification test results for the FET Multiplexer. Table
2-1 shows multiplexer test limits, DMM measurement uncertainty, and test
accuracy ratio values (TAR).
Test Limits
Test limits are defined for Closed Channel Resistance and Leakage (input
isolation) using the specifications in Appendix A of the appropriate User’s
Manual. The closed channel resistance and leakage tests are single-ended,
meaning that there is an upper limit OR a lower limit but not both. In Table
2-1, the minimum or maximum column is blank for a single ended test.
Measurement
Uncertainty
For the performance verification tests in this manual, measurement
uncertainties are calculated based on the Agilent 3458A Digital Multimeter.
The measurement uncertainty shown in Table 2-1 is the accuracy of the
Agilent 3458A using 90-day specifications. The calculations follow.
Closed Channel
Resistance Test
Conditions:
• 2-wire Ohms function, 10 kΩ range
• 90 day specifications
• Worst case reading = 3.1 kΩ
MU = (8 ppm of Reading + 0.5 ppm of Range)
= ((8 X 10-6 * 3100) + (0.5 X 10-6 * 104))
= 0.03 Ω

= ( 1.05 X 10-6) + ( 1.99 X 10-4) + ( 1.99 X 10-4)
= 3.99 X 10-4 Volts
Test Accuracy
Ratio (TAR)
Test Accuracy Ratios (TAR) are not defined for single-ended
measurements, so all closed channel resistance and leakage current tests
show NA (Not Applicable) in the TAR column.

Service
Introduction
This chapter contains service information for the Agilent E1351A, E1352A,
E1353A, E1357A, and E1358A FET Multiplexers. Also included are
trouble shooting, repair, and maintenance guidelines.
WARNING
Do not perform any of the service procedures shown unless
you are a qualified, service-trained technician and have read the
WARNINGS and CAUTIONS in Chapter 1.
Equipment
Required
Service Aids
FET Multiplexer
Description
Equipment required for module troubleshooting and repair is listed in
Table 1-1, Recommended Test Equipment. Any equipment that satisfies the
requirements given in the table may be substituted. To avoid damage to the
screw head slots, use a T8 Torx driver to remove the front panel handles.
See Chapter 3 — Replaceable Parts for descriptions and locations of
Agilent E1351A, E1352A, E1353A, E1357A, and E1358A replaceable
parts. Service notes, manual updates, and service literature for the FET
Multiplexers may be available through Agilent Technologies. For
information, contact your nearest Agilent Technologies Sales and Service
Office.
The Agilent E1351A, E1352A, E1353A, E1357A, and E1358A all use a
common component assembly. The component assembly contains all the
FET switches and their associated protection circuitry. Each terminal block
configures the component assembly to the appropriate type of switch.
Figures 4-1 through 4-4 show a simplified switching diagram for each FET
Multiplexer.
The terminal card contains the model identification code and the installation
of the terminal card before applying mainframe power ensures that the type
of switch is correctly identified. Optionally, the model identification can be
set on the component assembly to allow it to be correctly identified without
a terminal card installed. The component module also contains jumpers that
place the internal +4.6 V strain gage excitation voltage on the terminal block

Multiplexers.
Repair Strategy
Agilent Technologies recommends replacement of the entire assembly in the
event of a failure. Procedures in this chapter describe troubleshooting
techniques. A CLIP package, including component level replaceable parts
lists, is available for the FET Multiplexers (order Agilent part number
E1351-90033). The component assembly is available as an exchange
asembly as described in Chapter 3 — Replaceable Parts. Be sure to perform
the tests and checks in Table 4-2 before exchanging an assembly.
Troubleshooting
Techniques
To troubleshoot a FET Multiplexer problem you must first identify the
problem and then isolate the cause of the problem to a replaceable assembly.
See Chapter 3 — Replaceable Parts for descriptions and locations of
Agilent E1351A, E1352A, E1353A, E1357A, and E1358A replaceable parts.
Identifying the
Problem
Table 4-1 lists some common problems for the Agilent E1351A, E1352A,
E1353A, E1357A, and E1358A FET Multiplexers, along with symptoms
and possible solutions. If the problem cannot be identified using these steps,
replace the assembly.

Making Visual
Checks
Visual checks for the FET Multiplexers include the following. See
Table 4-2 for typical checks.
• Check switches/jumpers
• Check for heat damage
• Checking connector contacts
NOTE
See the appropriate FET Multiplexer User’s Manual for information on
logical address and IRQ settings. If there are no apparent problems
following the visual checks, run the Performance Verification Tests in
Chapter 2 to see if the module is defective.

Repair and
Maintenance
Guidelines
ESD Precautions
This section provides guidelines for repairing and maintaining the FET
Multiplexer including:
• ESD precautions
• Soldering printed circuit boards
• Post-repair safety checks
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) may damage static sensitive devices in the
module. This damage can range from slight parameter degradation to
catastrophic failure. When handling the module observe the following
guidelines:
• Always use a static-free work station with a pad of conductive rubber or
similar material when handling module components.
• If a device requires soldering, be sure the assembly is placed on a pad of
conductive material. Also, be sure that you, the pad, and the soldering
iron tip are grounded to the assembly.
Soldering Printed
Circuit Boards
The etched circuit board of this module has plated-through holes that
provide a solder path to both sides of the insulating material. Soldering can
be done from either side of the board with equally good results. When
soldering to any circuit board, keep in mind the following guidelines:
• Avoid unnecessary component unsoldering and soldering. Excessive
replacement can result in damage to the circuit board, adjacent
components, or both.
• Do not use a high power soldering iron on etched circuit boards, as
excessive heat may lift a conductor or damage the board.
• Use a suction device or wooden toothpick to remove solder from
component mounting holes. When using a suction device, be sure that the
equipment is properly grounded.
Post-Repair Safety
Checks
4-8 Service
After making repairs to the module, inspect the module for any signs of
abnormal internally generated heat, such as discolored printed circuit boards
or components, damaged insulation, or evidence of arcing. Determine and
correct the cause of the condition. Then perform Test 2-1 as described in
Chapter 2 — Verification Tests to verify that the module is functional.

Test
This program is designed to do the Functional Verification Test found in
Chapter 2 - Verification Tests.
Example: Self Test
NOTE
The Functional Verification Test for the Agilent E1351A, E1352A,
E1353A, E1357A, and E1358A FET Multiplexers consists of sending the
*IDN? command and checking the response. This test can be used to verify
that the FET Multiplexer is connected properly and is responding to a basic
command.
This program assumes a primary address of 09 and a secondary address of
14. If your FET Multiplexer address does not match this, you must either
change the FET Multiplexer address setting or change the program line
#define ADDR "hpib7,9,14" to match your FET Multiplexers address
setting.
#include <stdio.h>
#include <sicl.h>
#define ADDR "hpib7,9,14"
/* Address of device */

iprintf(id, "*IDN?\n");
iscanf (id, "%t", a);
printf("\n %s", a);
getchar();
iclose (id);
}
/* Send *IDN? command */
/* Get response */
/* Print result */
/* Pause */

Tests
These programs are designed to do the Performance Verification Tests
found in Chapter 2 - Verification Tests.
NOTE
These programs assume a primary address of 09 and a secondary address
of 14. If your FET Multiplexer address does not match this, you must either
change the FET Multiplexer address setting or change the program lines

setting.
Example: Closed
Channel
Resistance Test
This example performs a closed channel resistance test of all measurement
paths. If a FET on resistance is >3.1 kΩ , the program prints a message
indicating which channel has failed. Before the closed channel
measurement, the program checks for stuck channels. If a stuck channel is
found, the program prints a message and halts.
