Hewlett-Packard to Agilent Technologies Transition
This documentation supports a product that previously shipped under the HewlettPackard company brand name. The brand name has now been changed to Agilent
Technologies. The two products are functionally identical, only our name has changed. The
document still includes references to Hewlett-Packard products, some of which have been
transitioned to Agilent Technologies.

This chapter contains the specifications, supplemental characteristics, and electrical options for
each of the synthesizers covered in this book. Refer to the User’s Guide for your particular
instrument for mechanical, documentation, and warranty options.
Specifications for each instrument appear under the instrument number.
Specifications l-1
HP 8371 lA/llB Specifzations
Specifications describe the instrument’s warranted performance over the O” to 55°C
temperature range unless otherwise noted. Supplemental characteristics, indicated bg italics,
are intended to provide information useful in estimating instrument capability in your
application by describing typical, but not warranted, performance.
