SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS
GENERAL - This is a Safety Class I instrument (provided with
terminal for protective earthing).
•
Do not install substitute parts or perform any unauthorized
modification to the instrument.
OPERATION - BEFORE APPLYING POWER verify that the
power transformer primary is matched to the available line
voltage, the correct fuse is installed, and Safety Precautions
are taken (see the following warnings). In addition, note the instrument’s external markings which are described under
"Safety Symbols."
•
Adjustments described in the manual are performed with
power supplied to the instrument while protective covers
are removed. Energy available at many points may, if contacted, result in personal injury.
•
Any adjustment, maintenance, and repair of the opened instrument under voltage should be avoided as much as
possible, and when inevitable, should be carried out only
by a skilled person who is aware of the hazard involved.
•
Servicing instructions are for use by service-trained personnel. To avoid dangerous electric shock, do not perform
any servicing unless qualified to do so.
•
Capacitors inside the instrument may still be charged
even if the instrument has been disconnected from its
source of supply.
•
BEFORE SWITCHING ON THE INSTRUMENT, the protective earth terminal of the instrument must be connected to
the protective conductor of the (mains) powercord. The
mains plug shall only be inserted in a socket outlet provided with a protective earth contact. The protective action
must not be negated by the use of an extension cord
(power cable) without a protective conductor (grounding).
Grounding one conductor of a two-conductor outlet is not
sufficient protection.
•
•
Instruction manual symbol. The product will be
marked with this symbol when it is necessary for
the user to refer to the instruction manual in order
to protect against damage to the product.
Indicates hazardous voltages
If this instrument is to be energized via an auto-transformer (for voltage reduction) make sure the common terminal is connected to the earth terminal of the power
source.
Any interruption of the protective (grounding) conductor
(inside or outside the instrument) or disconnecting the protective earth terminal will cause a potential shock hazard
that could result in personal injury.
•
Whenever it is likely that the protection has been impaired, the instrument must be made inoperative and be
secured against any unintended operation.
•
Only fuses with the required rated current, voltage, and
specified type (normal blow, time delay, etc.) should be
used. Do not use repaired fuses or short circuited fuseholders. To do so could cause a shock or fire hazard.
•
SAFETY SYMBOLS
Do not operate the instrument in the presence of flammable gasses or fumes. Operation of any electrical instrument in such an environment constitutes a definite safety
hazard.
Earth terminal (sometimes used in manual to indicate circuit common connected to grounded
chassis).
The WARNING sign denotes a hazard. It
calls attention to a procedure, practice,
or the like, which, if not correctly performed or adhered to, could result in personal injury. Do not
proceed beyond a WARNING sign until the indicated conditions are fully understood and met.
The CAUTION sign denotes a hazard. It
calls attention to an operating procedure,
practice, or the like, which, if not correctly performed or adhered to, could result in damage to or
destruction of part or all of the product. Do not proceed beyond a CAUTION sign until the indicated conditions are fully
understood or met.

Installation
2-1. Introduction
2-4. Power Requirements
This section explains how to initially inspect the
HP 16532A Oscilloscope Module, then how to
prepare it for use, storage, and shipment. Also
included are procedures for module installation.
All power supplies required for operating the
HP 16532A Oscilloscope Module are supplied to
the module through the backplane connector in
the mainframe.
2-2. Initial Inspection
2-5. Safety Requirements
Inspect the shipping container for damage. If the
shipping container or cushioning material is
damaged, it should be kept until the contents of
the shipment have been checked for
completeness and the module has been checked
mechanically and electrically. The contents of the
shipment should be as listed in the "Accessories
Supplied" paragraph located in Section I.
Specific warnings, cautions, and instructions are
placed wherever applicable throughout the
manual. These must be observed during all
phases of operation, service, and repair of the
module. Failure to comply with them violates
safety standards of design, manufacture, and
intended use of this module.
Procedures for checking electrical performance
are in Section III. If the contents of the container
are incomplete, there is mechanical damage or
defect, or the instrument does not pass the
performance tests, notify the nearest
Hewlett-Packard sales office.
If the shipping container is damaged, or the
cushioning material shows signs of stress, notify
the carrier as well as the Hewlett-Packard sales
office. Keep the shipping material so the carrier
can inspect it. The Hewlett-Packard office will
arrange for repair or replacement at
Hewlett-Packard’s option without waiting for claim
settlement.
2-3. Preparation for Use
Hewlett-Packard assumes no liability for the failure
of the customer to comply with these safety
requirements.
2-6. Module Installation
Do not install, remove, or replace the module
in the instrument unless the instrument power
is turned off.
The HP 16532A Oscilloscope Module will take up
one slot in the card cage. For every additional

2-7. Operating Environment
2-9. Packaging
The operating environment is listed in table 1-2 of
Section I of this manual. Note should be made of
the non-condensing humidity limitation.
Condensation within the instrument can cause
poor operation or malfunction. Protection should
be provided against internal condensation.
The following general instructions should be used
for repacking the module with commercially
available materials.
The HP 16532A Oscilloscope Module will operate
at all specifications within the temperature and
humidity range given in table 1-2. However,
reliability is enhanced when operating the module
within the following ranges.
•
Temperature: + 20 °C to + 35 °C (+ 68 °F to
+ 95 °F)
•
Humidity: 20% to 80% non-condensing
•
Wrap the module in antistatic plastic.
•
Use a strong shipping container. A doublewalled carton made of 350-lb test material is
adequate.
•
Use a layer of shock-absorbing material 70 to
100 mm (3- to 4-inch) thick around all sides of
the module to provide firm cushioning and to
prevent movement within the container.
•
Seal the shipping container securely.
•
Mark the shipping container FRAGILE to ensure proper handling.
•
In any correspondence, refer to the module
by its model number and serial number.
2-8. Storage
The module may be stored or shipped in
environments within the following limits:
•
Temperature: − 40 °C to + 75 °C
2-10. Tagging for Service
•
Humidity: Up to 90% at 65 °C
•
Altitude: Up to 15,300 meters (50,000 feet)
If the module is to be shipped to a
Hewlett-Packard sales office for service or repair,
attach a tag showing owner (with address),
complete serial number, and a description of the
service required.
The module should also be protected from
temperature extremes which cause condensation
on the instrument.

SECTION IV
Calibration
4-1. Introduction
This section provides information on calibrating
the HP 16532A 1 GSa/s Oscilloscope module.
Information is included about when to calibrate the
module, the module warm up interval required
prior to calibration, and how to do the actual
calibration of the module. Also included are safety
requirements to observe when working on the
equipment, a list of recommended test equipment,
and equipment setups for the different calibration
procedures. Although the module has no
hardware adjustments, it does contain a
calibration PROTECT/UNPROTECT switch that
you use before and after calibration. Actual
calibration of the module is performed in software.
4-2. Safety Requirements
Read the safety summary at the front of this
manual before any replacement, maintenance, or
repair is performed.
Specific warnings, cautions, and instructions are
placed wherever applicable throughout the
manual. These must be observed during all
phases of operation, service, and repair of the
module. Failure to comply with them violates
safety standards of design, manufacture, and
intended use of this module. Hewlett-Packard
assumes no liability for the failure of the customer
to comply with these safety requirements.
4-3. Calibration Interval
To maintain proper calibration, perform calibration
at approximately six-month intervals, or every 1000
hours, when the instrument is being used under
normal operating conditions. Immediate
calibration is required if one of the following
occurs:
•
Oscilloscope module is installed, repaired, or
replaced, or if the card slot configuration is
changed.
•
The oscilloscope software changes revision
number and asterisks (* ) are on the calibration menu.
•
Ambient temperature changes more than
10 °C.
If you add or delete a card(s) from a calibrated
multicard oscilloscope module, you must perform
the Time Null calibration.
4-4. Maintaining System Integrity
Calibration factors depend on the mainframe,
module, and module configuration all staying
together. If oscilloscope modules are
interchanged between mainframes, or the
oscilloscope module slot configuration is changed,
calibration must be repeated. In an environment in
which the possibility of sharing oscilloscope
modules exists, Hewlett-Packard recommends
taking the following precautions in order to
maintain system integrity:
With the system turned off, place the
PROTECT/UNPROTECT switch (all switches in a
single or a chained, multiple oscilloscope module
configuration) in the UNPROTECT position.
Boot the system and perform calibration for each
module.
Turn off the system, place the
PROTECT/UNPROTECT switch (all switches in a
single or a chained, multiple oscilloscope module
configuration) in the PROTECT position, then seal
the mainframe.
4-5. Calibration Protection Switch
Each HP 16532A board stores the calibration
factors for that board in non-volatile RAM on the
board itself. The HP 16532A board contains a
calibration protection (PROTECT/UNPROTECT)
switch. With the switch in the PROTECT position,
calibration values cannot be changed.
4-1
HP 16532A - Calibration
To run the scope calibration, the switch must be in
the UNPROTECT position. When you have more
than one HP 16532A board in a mainframe, this
must be done for each one of the boards. After
calibration is complete, all the switches must be
set to the PROTECT position to save the
calibration values. Also, all the modules or filler
panels must be reinstalled in the mainframe, then a
seal should be placed on the equipment such that
the seal touches both the top-most module and
the mainframe. This is done to assure that
calibration integrity is maintained.
4-6. Recommended Test Equipment
The only test equipment required for calibration
are cables and adapters. These are listed in
paragraph 4-10 and are called out in the applicable
calibration procedure.
4-7. Instrument Warmup
Calibrate the oscilloscope module at its
environmental ambient temperature, after a
30-minute warmup period of the
HP 16500A/16501A mainframe with the module
installed.
4-8. Calibration
This section provides software calibration
procedures for the HP 16532A oscilloscope
module. There are no hardware adjustments on
the oscilloscope module. The calibration is
performed without access to the interior of the
instrument.
When ordered with a system, oscilloscope
modules are calibrated at Hewlett-Packard as
single units (not chained together). If you need to
use the modules as one unit (chained together),
perform the Time Null Calibration in section 4-12.
The calibration procedure sets the oscilloscope
calibration factors and stores them in non-volatile
RAM on the board. The procedures use signals
generated in the oscilloscope module itself to
calibrate channel sensitivity, offset, and trigger
parameters. The calibration factors set up the
module each time the instrument is turned on.
The calibration procedures in this section should
be followed in their entirety and in the sequence
listed in table 4-1. Though in this section the
default calibrations are loaded before calibration,
calibration can be done without loading them.
However, if they are loaded, they should be loaded
before an actual calibration is done.
When calibrating the module, it must be installed in
the mainframe, and the mainframe covers and filler
panels must be in place. The module must be
warmed up (refer to "Instrument Warmup" given
earlier in this section).
Calibration procedures require the use of cables
and adapters only. Non-service personnel can
perform the calibration, however, to do the
calibration, it is necessary to unprotect the current
calibration values. This may not be allowed in
some circumstances − check with your
Calibration Laboratory or Service Department
before you attempt calibration. To perform
calibration, follow the "Self Cal Menu Calibration"
procedures given later in this section.

4-9. Setting the PROTECT/UNPROTECT Switch to UNPROTECT
The effects of ELECTROSTATIC DISCHARGE can damage electronic components. Use grounded wrist straps and mats when you are performing any kind of
service on this module.
The oscilloscope board contains a calibration PROTECT/UNPROTECT switch. This switch must be set
to UNPROTECT before calibration can be done. Set the switch to UNPROTECT as follows:
1. Remove power from the instrument. Pull halfway out all of the modules located above the
oscilloscope and remove the filler panels and cards located above the oscilloscope. See figure 4-1
for the removal sequence.
Figure 4-1. Endplate Overlap - Top Sequence
2. Remove the oscilloscope module and set the PROTECT/UNPROTECT switch to the UNPROTECT
position. See Figure 4-2 to locate this switch.
Figure 4-2. Location of the PROTECT/UNPROTECT Switch
3. Repeat step 2 for every oscilloscope module if this is a multimodule calibration.
4. Reinstall the modules and filler panels in reverse order of steps 1 and 2.

SECTION V
Replaceable Parts
5-1. Introduction
The service policy for this instrument is replacement of defective assemblies. This service manual
contains information for finding a defective
assembly.
This section contains parts and ordering
information for the HP 16532A Oscilloscope
Module. Table 5-1 lists the reference designator
and abbreviations used throughout this manual.
Table 5-2 lists all replaceable parts by reference
designator.
5-2. Abbreviations
Table 5-1 lists abbreviations used throughout the
manual. In some cases two forms of the
abbreviations are used, one in all capital letters,
the other partially or not capitalized. This was
done because the abbreviations in the parts list are
always all capitals. However, in other parts of the
manual other abbreviation forms are used with
both lower and uppercase letters.
5-3. Replaceable Parts List
Table 5-2 lists replaceable parts and is organized
as follows:
•
Exchange assemblies in alphanumerical
order by reference designation.
•
Electrical assemblies in alphanumerical order
by reference designation.
•
Chassis-mounted parts in alphanumerical
order by reference designation.
The information given for each part consists of the
following:
•
Complete reference designation.
•
Hewlett-Packard part number.
•
Total quantity.
•
Description of part.
•
Check digit.
The total quantity for each part is only given once
at the first appearance of the part number in the list.
5-4. Ordering Information
To order a part listed in the replaceable parts table,
quote the Hewlett-Packard part number, check
digit, indicate the quantity required, and address
the order to the nearest Hewlett-Packard office.
To order a part that is not listed in the replaceable
parts table, include the instrument model number,
instrument serial number, the description and
function of the part, and number of parts required.
Address the order to the nearest Hewlett-Packard
office.
5-5. Exchange Assemblies
Exchange assemblies are available when a
repairable assembly is returned to
Hewlett-Packard. These assemblies have been set
up on the "Exchange Assembly" program. This
allows the customer to exchange the faulty
assembly with one that has been repaired,
calibrated, and performance verified by the
factory. The cost is significantly less than that of a
new assembly.
5-1
HP 16532A - Replaceable Parts
Exchange assemblies are listed in a separate
section in the replaceable parts table. They have a
part number in the form XXXXX-695XX (where the
new parts would be XXXXX-665XX). Before
ordering an "exchange assembly," check with your
local parts or repair organization for procedures.
5-6. Direct Mail Order System
Within the USA, Hewlett-Packard can supply parts
through direct mail order. The advantages are as
follows:
•
5-2
Direct ordering and shipment from
Hewlett-Packard Parts Center in Mountain
View, California.
•
No maximum or minimum on any mail order
(there is a minimum order for parts ordered
through local Hewlett-Packard offices when
orders require billing and invoicing).
•
Prepaid transportation (there is a small
handling charge for each order).
•
No invoices - to provide these advantages,
check or money order must accompany each
order.
Mail order forms and specific ordering information
are available through your local Hewlett-Packard
offices.

SECTION VI
Service
6-1. Introduction
6-5. Attenuator Theory of Operation
The service policy for this instrument is replacement of defective assemblies. This service manual
contains information for finding a defective
assembly. This section contains information for
servicing the HP 16532A Oscilloscope Module.
Included are a block level theory and procedures
for self diagnostics and troubleshooting. If the
module or a cable is determined faulty, procedures
are provided for module and cable replacement.
The channel signals are conditioned by the
attenuator/preamps, thick film hybrids containing
passive attenuators, impedance converters, and a
programmable amplifier. The channel sensitivity
defaults to the standard 1-2-4 sequence (other
sensitivities can be set also). However, the
firmware uses passive attenuation of 1, 5, 25, and
125, with the programmable preamp, to cover the
entire sensitivity range.
6-2. Safety Requirements
Specific warnings, cautions, and instructions are
placed wherever applicable throughout the
manual. These must be observed during all
phases of operation, service, and repair of the
module. Failure to comply with them violates
safety standards of design, manufacture, and
intended use of this module. Hewlett-Packard
assumes no liability for the failure of the customer
to comply with these safety requirements.
The input has a selectable 1 MΩ input impedance
with ac or dc coupling or a 50Ω input impedance
with dc coupling. Compensation for the passive
attenuators is laser trimmed and is not adjustable.
After the passive attenuators, the signal is split into
high-frequency and low-frequency components.
Low frequency components are amplified on the
main assembly, where they are combined with the
offset voltage. The ac coupling is implemented in
the low frequency amplifier.
Table 1-3 lists recommended test equipment. Any
equipment that satisfies the critical specification
given in the table may be substituted for the
recommended models.
The high- and low-frequency components of the
signal are recombined and applied to the input
FET of the preamp. The FET provides a high input
impedance for the preamp. The programmable
preamp adjusts the gain to suit the required
sensitivity and provides the output signal to the
main assembly. The output signal is then sent to
both the trigger circuitry and ADC.
6-4. Module Block Diagram and Theory of Operation
6-6. Main Assembly Theory of
Operation
The following paragraphs contain block level
theory of operation. This theory is not intended for
component level troubleshooting, rather it is to be
used to help isolate a module failure to card level.
Acquisition
6-3. Recommended Test Equipment
The HP 16532A Oscilloscope Module is contained
on one board. It runs at a 1 GSa/s digitizing rate,
with a 250 MHz single-shot (real-time) bandwidth,
8000 samples per measurement per channel, with
2-channel simultaneous acquisition which is
expandable to up to 8 channels. See figure 6-1.
The acquisition circuitry provides the sampling,
digitizing, and storing of the signals from the
channel attenuators. The channels are identical.
The external trigger (ECL) input cannot be
displayed. Trigger signals from each channel and
the external triggers synchronize acquisition
through the time base circuitry. A 100 MHz
oscillator and a time base provide system timing
and sample clocking. A voltage-controlled
oscillator (VCO), frequency divider, and digital
6-1

phase detector provide the sample clock for higher
sample rates. After conditioning and sampling, the
signals are digitized, then stored in a hybrid IC
containing a FISO (fast in, slow out) memory.
ADC. The eight-bit ADC digitizes the channel
signal. Digitization is done by comparators in a
flash converter. The sample clock latches the
digitized value of the input to save it so that it can
be sent to memory.
6-2
FISO Memory. 8000 samples of the FISO (fast in,
slow out) memory are used per measurement per
channel. Memory positions are not addressed
directly. The configuration is a ring which loops
continuously as it is clocked. Memory position is
tracked by counting clocks. The clocking rate is
the same as the ADC, however the clock
frequency is half that of the ADC since the FISO
clocks on both transitions of the clock period.
Data is buffered onto the CPU data bus for
processing.
HP 16532A - Service
Triggering. There are two main trigger circuits
that trigger four trigger sources. The two trigger
circuits are the analog trigger and the logic trigger.
The analog trigger IC operates as a multichannel
Schmidt trigger/comparator. A trigger signal (a
copy of the analog input signal) from each of the
inputs is directed to the analog trigger IC inputs.
The trigger signal is continuously compared with
the trigger reference level selected by the user.
Once the trigger condition is met, the trigger TRUE
signal is fed to the logic trigger, which begins the
acquisition and store functions by way of the time
base.
The four trigger sources are Channel 1, Channel 2,
Intermodule Bus (IMB), and external BNC. The
operation of the input channels was discussed
previously. The IMB trigger signal is sent directly
to the logic trigger. External triggering is provided
by the BNC input of the 16500A Logic Analysis
System mainframe.
Time Base. The time base provides the sample
clocks and timing necessary for data acquisition.
It consists of the 100 MHz reference oscillator and
time base hybrid.
The 100 MHz reference oscillator provides the
base sample frequency.
The time base hybrid has programmable dividers
to provide the rest of the sample frequencies
appropriate for the time range selected. The time
base uses the time-stretched output of the fine
interpolator to time-reference the sampling to the
trigger point. The time base has counters to
control how much data is taken before (pre-trigger
data) and after (post-trigger data) the trigger event.
After the desired number of pre-trigger samples
has occurred, the Time base hybrid sends a signal
to the Logic Trigger (trigger arm) indicating it is
ready for the trigger event. When the trigger
condition is satisfied, the Logic Trigger sends a
signal back to the time base hybrid. The time base
hybrid then starts the post-trigger delay counter.
When the countdown reaches zero, the sample
clocks are stopped and the CPU is signaled that
the acquisition is complete. The Fine Interpolator
is a dual-slope integrator that acts as a
time-interval stretcher. When the logic trigger
receives a signal that meets the programmed
triggering requirements, it signals the time base.
The time base then sends a pulse to the fine
interpolator. The pulse is equal in width to the time
between the trigger and the next sample clock.
The fine interpolator stretches this time by a factor
of approximately 500. Meanwhile, the time base
hybrid runs a counter with a clock derived from the
sample rate oscillator. When the interpolator
indicates the stretch is complete, the counter is
stopped. The count represents, with much higher
accuracy, the time between the trigger and the first
sample clock. The count is stored and used to
place the recently acquired data in relationship
with previous data.
AC Cal. The AC Cal is a multiplexer circuit that
can provide several signals to the Probe
Compensation/AC Calibrator output on the rear
panel. The signal provided depends on the mode
of the instrument. It can be either a probe
compensation signal, a pulse representing the
trigger event, signals used for self-calibration, or
the 100 MHz reference oscillator when sample
period is 1 ns.
DC Cal. The DC Cal output, a rear panel signal, is
used for self-calibration. It is one output from the
16-channel DAC.
Digital Interface. The Digital Interface provides
control and interface between the system control
and digital functions in the acquisition circuitry.
Analog Interface. The Analog Interface provides
control of analog functions in the acquisition
circuitry. It is primarily a 16-channel DAC with an
accurate reference and filters on the outputs. It
controls channel offsets and trigger levels, and
provides the DC Cal output.

6-7. Self-Tests
The self-tests for the HP 16532A oscilloscope module will identify the improper operation of major functional areas in the module. They are not intended for component level diagnostics.
If there are multiple oscilloscope modules, the user must select the specific oscilloscope module to be
tested at the main test system menu. Multiple HP 16532A modules that are connected as one unit are recognized as a single unit in the test menu. The external trigger cables connected to the ECL IN and ECL
OUT do not need to be removed in order to do the self-test for each board. All other cable connections
must be removed.
All self-tests can be run without access to the interior of the instrument. If a self-test fails, refer to
section 6-8, "Troubleshooting."
Self-Test Access Procedure:
1. Disconnect all oscilloscope inputs and turn on the power switch.
2. From the startup screen, shown in figure 6-2, touch the Configuration field. Then, touch Test in the
pop-up menu.

Self-Test Descriptions
The following self-tests check the major components of the HP 16532A oscilloscope module as well as all
associated circuitry. When the self-tests have all been completed with a "PASS" status, the major data and
control pipelines in the HP 16532A oscilloscope module are functioning properly.
Data Memory Test
This test verifies the correct operation of the FISO (fast-in/slow-out) data memory on each board. Test
patterns are written into the memory and then read and compared with known values.
Timebase Test
The pre-trigger and post-trigger delay modes are first tested by programming a predetermined time
interval in the trigger counters. At the end of the time intervals, the arm, trigger, and run status bits are
read and compared with known values. The coarse and fine interpolators are then checked by reading
the values of the interpolator counters after a simulated acquisition. The counter values are then compared with a known value. Finally, the sample clock is checked by programming a sample clock
frequency and then reading the status of the clock to detect when one clock period has elapsed. The
clock period time interval is then compared with a known value.
A/D Test
This test verifies the correct operation of the A/D convertor on each board. A check of the trigger in
Trigger Immediate mode is first made. The A/D convertors are then exercised by setting the reference
voltage and channel offset such that a simulated acquisition obtains data in the extremes and middle of
the quantization range of the A/D convertor. After each simulated acquisition, the data is compared with
known values.
D/A Test
This test verifies the correct operation of the D/A convertor on each board. Both the offset and trigger
level D/A convertors for each channel are set to a reference level and then changed. The logic trigger IC
is programmed to detect the changes. The detection of a correct trigger indicates that the D/A convertor
is operating normally.
Trigger Test
This test verifies the correct operation of the trigger components on each board. First, the logic trigger
memory is checked by writing and then reading known patterns. The logic qualifiers, logic trigger output,
and trigger holdoff are checked.
IMB Test
This test verifies the correct operation of the oscilloscope card interface to the intermodule bus.
All Tests
This will automatically execute each test, one at a time, until all tests are done.

HP 16532A - Service
6-8. Troubleshooting
The troubleshooting flow chart given in figure 6-10 will isolate module failures to card level only. It is not
intended for component level troubleshooting. If self-tests indicate a failure, begin at the Start of the troubleshooting flow chart. When a specific test fails, you will be instructed to replace a faulty card or you will
be referred to other flow charts for the isolation of the faulty card or cable.
The effects of ELECTROSTATIC DISCHARGE can damage electronic components. Grounded wriststraps and mats should be used when you perform any
kind of service to this instrument or the cards in it.
Troubleshooting Aids
The Calibration menu contains the Service Cal mode that can help you troubleshoot the oscilloscope
module. When the problem is found and corrected, run all of the calibration procedures given in
Section IV, "Calibration."
If you suspect a fault in the system, you can load the system default values to see if the NVRAM parameters have possibly been corrupted. The procedure for loading the default values is given in Section IV under the heading "Loading the Default Calibration Factors."
If loading the default values does not fix the problem, you may want to verify that the system clock is
working correctly. The procedure to verify the system clock is given below.
If none of these aids find the problem, go to the troubleshooting flow chart to find the problem. As stated
above, when the problem is found and corrected, run all of the calibration procedures given in Section IV
"Calibration."

Verifying the System Clock
This procedure is provided as a troubleshooting aid to verify that the 100 MHz System Clock oscillator is
functioning properly. The 100 MHz oscillator is the primary time reference used for all of the acquisition
clock periods. The test limits provided are the test limits for the 100 MHz oscillator only. If the readings
are outside of the test limits, the oscilloscope module will not operate properly.
