Step 1: Unpack and Inspect the Module
CAUTION
The M9260A PXIe Audio Analyzer is shipped in materials which prevent
damage from static. The module should only be removed from the packaging
in an anti-static area after ensuring that correct anti-static precautions are
taken. Store all modules in anti-static envelopes when not in use.
ESD precaution
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage or destroy electronic components. All
work on electronic assemblies should be performed at a static-safe work station.
The following are the recommended ESD accessories and can be purchased from
your local supplier.
– Conductive table mat with wrist-strap combination.
– Conductive floor mat with heel-strap combination.
Both types, when used together, provide a significant level of ESD protection. Of
the two, only the table mat with wrist-strap combination provides adequate ESD
protection when used alone. To ensure user safety, the static-safe accessories
must provide at least 1 Ω of isolation from ground.
Figure 1-1 shows an example of a static-safe work station using both types of ESD
protection: conductive table mat with wrist-strap combination, and conductive
floor mat with heel-strap combination.

The purpose of the verification procedure for the M9260A is to ensure that the
module is operating within its specifications.
The verification procedure is run using the M9260A Soft Front Panel (SFP)
software included with this product. Launch the M9260A SFP by clicking its
desktop shortcut icon or by clicking:
– Start > All Programs > Keysight M9260 PXIe Mod ule > M9260 SFP
(Windows 7)
The M9260 SFP module selection interface will display all modules that are
connected and installed. Review the configuration data and launch the M9260A
SFP.
The M9260A SFP will provide control over the module for operational verification
procedures. A screen capture of the SFP interface is shown in Figure 1-7.

capability and behavior through an easy-to-use GUI.
– Refer to the Keysight M9260A Soft Front Panel Help for details on how to use
the SFP software.
Conduct operational verification (optional)
The verification procedure in this section helps to ensure the M9260A module is
operational. No external equipment is required except for two BNC to BNC cables
to enable loopback configuration from the audio generator outputs to the audio
analyzer inputs.
M9260A operational verification procedure
The M9260A verification procedure involves measuring the Vac, Frequency,
THD+N, and THD parameters. The average value from the measured data samples
will then be calculated. The measurement results (average) are then compared to
the known values output from the audio generator.
1 Launch the M9260A Soft Front Panel (SFP).
2 Connect the Generator CH1 output to the Analyzer CH1 input, and the
Generator CH2 output to the Analyzer CH2 input using BNC cables as shown
in Figure 1-8.
