SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS
GENERAL — This is a Safety Class I instrument {pro-
vided with terminal for protective earthing).
OPERATION — BEFORE APPLYING POWER veri-
fy 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 warn-
ings). In addition, note the instrument’s external mark-
ings which are described under “Safety Symbols.”
WARNINGS Ë
Servicing instructions are for use by service-trained per-
sonnel only. To avoid dangerous electric shock, do not
perform any servicing unless qualified to do so.
BEFORE SWITCHING ON THE INSTRUMENT, the
protective earth terminal of the instrument must be con-
nected to the protective conductor of the (mains) power
cord. The mains plug shall only be inserted in a socket
outlet provided with a protective earth contact, The pro-
tective action must not be negated by the use of an exten-
sion cord (power cable) without a protective conductor
(grounding). Grounding one conductor of a two conduc-
tor outlet is not sufficient protection.
If this instrument is to be energized via an auto-
transformer (for voltage reduction) make sure the com-
mon terminal is connected to the earth terminal of the
power source.
Any interruption of the protective (grounding) conduc-
tor (inside or outside the instrument) or disconnecting
the protective earth terminal will cause a potential
shock hazard that could resuit in personal mjury.
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, ete.) should be
used. Do not use repaired fuses or short circuited fuse-
holders. To do so could cause a shock or fire hazard.
Do not operate the instrument in the presence of flam-
mable gases or fumes. Operation of any electrical instru-
ment in such an environment constitutes a definite
safety hazard.
Do not install substitute parts or perform any unautho-
rized modification to the instrument.
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.
Capacitors inside the instrument may still be charged
even if the instrument has been disconnected from its
source of supply.

LN duct will be marked with this symbol

1-3. SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS.
| WARNING E
To prevent personal injury, observe all safety precautions and warnings stated on the instrument and in the
manual,
This product is a Safety Class | instrument (provided with a protective earth terminal). The 1980A/B and ail related
documentation must be reviewed for familiarization with safety markings and instructions before operation. Refer to the
Safety Considerations page found at the beginning of this manual for a summary of general safety information. Safety
precautions for installation, operation, and servicing are found in appropriate locations throughout the Operating and Service
Manual. These precautions must be observed during all phases of operation, service, and repair of this instrument. Failureto
comply with these precautions or with specific warnings elsewhere in the manual violates safety standards of design,
manufacture, and intended use of this instrument. Hewlett-Packard assumes no liability for failure to comply with these
requirements,
1-4. INSTRUMENTS COVERED BY MANUAL.
Attached to the instrument is a serial number plate. The serial number is in the form: 0000A00000. itis in two parts: thefirst
four digits and the letter are the serial number prefix and the last five digits are the suffix. The prefix is the same for all identical
instruments: it changes only when a change is made to the instrument. The letter in the prefix designates the country in which
the instrument was manufactured. (A=USA; G=West Germany; J=Japan; S=Singapore.) The suffix, however, is assigned
sequentially and is unique to each instrument. The contents of this manual apply to instruments with the serial number
prefix{es) listed under SERIAL NUMBERS on the title page.
An instrument manufactured after the printing of this manual may have a serial number prefix that is not listed on the title
page. This unlisted serial number prefix indicates the instrument is different from those described in this manual. Manuals
accompanying these newer instruments include a Manual Changes supplement. The supplement contains change
instructions for the entire Operating and Service Manual.
In addition to change information, the supplements may contain information for correcting errors in the manuals. To keep
your manuals as current and accurate as possible, Hewlett-Packard recommends that you periodically request the latest
Manual Changes supplement. These supplements are identified with the print date and part number that appears on thetitle
page of this manual. Complimentary copies of these supplements are available from Hewlett-Packard,
For information concerning a serial number prefix that is not listed on the title page or in the Manual Changes supplement,
contact your nearest Hewlett-Packard Sales and Service office.

3-11. Using Autoscope.
Autoscope is a convenient means of obtaining a basic display of an unknown signal. In executing autoscope, the 1980A/B
scans the vertical inputs, selects trigger sources, and autoranges trigger levels, deflection factors and sweep speeds,
Execute autoscope, press : Avro-Score
After autoscope, the 1980A/B displays input signals plotted vs main sweep. Main sweep speed is selected to display ~ 2
cycles of the waveform. if only one signal is applied, deflection factor is selected so the displayed signal is ~ 3 divisions peak to
peak.
For more information about the autoscope function, refer to the “Autoscope” Detailed Operating Instruction.
3-12. Keys and Indications.
Instead of conventional mechanical switches, the 1980A/B has membrane switch keys to control instrument operation.
Instrument setup is stored in nonvolatile memory, so itis not lost when instrument power is cycled off and on. The keys are
easy to operate, just press on the center of the key legend.
Active functions or operating modes are indicated by lighted keys. For example, press ad to turn on vertical bandwidth

trigger signal is displayed while the Control Knob is turned. The center horizontal graticule line represents the trigger
threshold level with respect to the trigger signal.
When adjusting trigger controls, begin with the timebases in auto-sweep mode so there is a trace displayed. For example,
press ime {dly'd} to put delayed sweep in triggered mode. Because channel 1 is selected as the delayed trigger source andthe
trigger level is misadjusted, delayed sweep is not triggered. This inhibits main sweep and trigger view making it more difficult
to correct the triggering problem. Notice that the delayed sweep NOT indicator is lighted. The NOT indicators show which
sweep is not triggered. Press ihe to return delayed to auto-sweep mode.
Now select the trigger source and level for delayed sweep. Press <= : 5 - Hd (diy'd) and rotate the Control Knob until

For more information about HP-IB, refer to IEEE Std 488 (or the identical ANSI Standard MC1.1}, "IEEE Standard Digital
Interface for Programmable Instrumentation’. The Hewlett-Packard catalog and the bookiet ’Improving Measurements in
Engineering and Manufacturing” [HP part number 5952-0058) provide an overview of bus operation and useful information
about HP-IB system appiications.
3-22. HP-IB Compatibilty.
The Measurement System's complete bus compatibility as defined in IEEE Std 488 is presented in table 3-3.
The programming capability of the instrument is further described by the twelve HP-1B meta messages in the left hand column
of table 3-3. Foremost among these is the Data message. Data messages contain the program codes that set the instruments
mode of operation.

The status of the Measurement System on the HP-IB is annunciated on the CRT by a special HP-1B status advisory. For
example, figure 3-8 shows the HP-18 status advisory dispiayed when the instrument is in remote mode and addressed to
listen, The symbois displayed In the advisory and their indications are listed in table 3-4.

Remote Capability. The instrument communicates on the bus in both remote and local modes, inremote, ali but a fewofthe
front panei controls are disabled. The exceptions are the LINE switch, E, | a and the CRT display adjustments.
When Local Lockout is in effect, the return-to-local key sequence E is also disabled,
The Control Knob can be enabled and assigned to specific functions white the instrument is in remote mode. This allows a
local operator to make measurements or change settings under program direction. The procedure for this is described in the
“Control Knob” Detailed Operating Instruction,
The Measurement System can be addressed to listen or talk while inremote mode. When addressedto listen, the instrument
automatically stops talking and responds to Data messages. When addressed to talk, the instrument stops listening and sends
either a Data message or the Status Byte. Whether addressed or not, the Measurement System responds to the Locai, Loca!
Lockout, Clear Lockout/Set Local, and Abort messages and, in addition, the Measurement System may issue the Require
Service message. Although the 1880A/B does not respond to the Trigger message, this message is decoded and available for
use by either plug-in or internal options.

Local-to-remote Mode Changes. The Measurement System switches to remote upon receipt of the Remote message. The
Remote message has two parts:
* Remote Enable (REN) bus contro! Hne true
* Device listen address (MLA) received once while REN is true
All instrument settings remain unchanged with the local-to-remote transition. However, the remote-to-local transition does
mode.
If the Measurement System is set to listen-only or talk-only mode, the local-to-remote transition is inhibited.
3-25. Local Mode.
Local Capability. In local, the Measurement System's front pane! controls are operational. Although it will not respond to
input Data messages in local mode, if addressed to talk, the instrument can send Data messages and the Status Byte,
Whether addressed or not, the instrument responds to the Remote, Local, Local Lockout, Clear Lockout/Set Local, and Abort
messages. it also can issue the Require Service message in local mode.
Remote-to-local Mode Changes. The instrument always switches to local from remote whenever it receives the Local
message {GTL} or the Clear Lockout/Set Local message. {The Clear Lockout/Set Local message sets the Remote Enable
controf linefREN|false.} If it is not in Local Lockout mode, the instrument also switches to local from remote when the key
sequence | LE is pressed.
The instrument's settings remain unchanged during remote-to-local transitions. if the HP-IB status advisory is enabled, the
remote indicator (+) turns off as the remote-to-local change is made.
3-26. Local Lockout,
When program control is interrupted, which can happen by returning the instrument to local via the front panel keystroke
sequence, data or settings could be changed. This would leave the instrument in an unknown state. To prevent this, a focal
lockout ts recommended. Local lockout allows return-to-local only under program control.
Note
Return-to-locatl can also be accomplished by turning the instrument off, then on
again with the LINE switch. However, this technique has several potential
disadvantages:
* it defeats the purpose of local lockout (that is, the system controller may
lose control of the instrument).
* Other HP-IB conditions reset to default states at power-on.
3-27. Addressing.
The Measurement System interprets the byte on the eight bus data lines as an address or a bus command if the bus is in the
command mode (Attention control linel ATNiiruel, In addressable mode, the instrument may be addressed to listen or to talk.
3-21
Operation Model 1980A/B
Once addressed to listen, the instrument remains configured to listen until it receives an Abort message (IFC), its own talk
address (MTA), or a universal unlisten command (UNL} from the controller. Once addressed to talk, the instrument remains
configured to talk until it receives an Abort message {IFC}, another instrument's talk address {OTA}, its own listen address
(MLA, or a universal untatk command (UNT). if the status advisory is enabled, it indicates on the CRT when the instrument is
addressed to talk (7) or addressed to listen [1].
The Measurement System is shipped from the factory in the addressable mode, with its talk and listen addresses set to "7" (ie,
T7 and L7}. Refer to table 3-30 for equivalent address codes. The instrument can also be configured in the talk-only or listen-
only mode. These modes enable limited bus operation without an HP-IB system controller. The instrument s address and
addressing mode may be displayed or changed from the front panel using the soft keys. Complete instructions for these
procedures are in the “HP-IB Address” Detailed Operating instruction, |
Listen-only Mode. if the instrument is set to listen-only mode, it is always configured as a listener and responds to all Data
messages sent on the HP-1B. However, it cannot output Data messages and it is inhibited from responding to the Remote,
Local, Local Lockout, Clear Lockout/Set Local, or Abort messages. Also, it is disabled from issuing the Require Service
message and cannot respond to a serial poil.
Note
in listen-oniy mode, the front panel is enabled {the instrument does not enter
remote mode}. Therefore, settings can be changed while a program Is executing.
Talk-only Mode. If the Measurement System is set to talk-only mode, it is always configured as a talker and does not respond
to any of the bus messages. Although the talk-only mode may be selected from the front panel, it is not supported by the
1980A/B standard firmware.
3-28. HP-15 Turn-on Defauit Conditions.
Several HP-1B parameters are reset at power-on. However, both the instrument'saddress and addressing mode are preserved
in nonvolatile memory,

3-22
Model 1 980A/B Operation
3-29. Data Messages.
The Measurement System communicates on the HP-IB primarily with Data messages. The Measurement System interprets
the byte on the eight bus data lines as a Data message when the bus is in the data mode (Attention control line |ATN false).
The instrument can both receive and send Data messages. Input Data messages include the instrument's program codes
(device-dependent commands} used to program front panel functions, menu functions, and ali remote functions. Qutput Data
messages include instrument status information and the settings of specific functions. ВЕ
Of special consideration is the Learn String which can be sent and received by the instrument. It is a binary data string that
contains a condensed coding of the entire instrument state. The Learn String is described in paragraph 3-32 andinthe ‘Learn
Mode’ Detailed Operating Instruction.
The HP-IB Codes and Format Summary (paragraph 3-55) provides a list of all program codes for the 1 980A /B. This summary
includes a brief description of each code, specific format requirements, and a cross reference to further information in the
Detailed Operating Instructions.
3-30. Receiving the Data Message.
The Measurement System responds to Data messages when in remote mode (REN control line true} and is addressedto listen
or when it is in listen-only mode.
Input Data Message Format, Input Data messages contain a string of device dependent commands {program codes! and an
End-of-String (EOS) message. The program codes within a Data message are executed after the EOS message is received.
The following format rules must be observed in alí input Data messages:
A linefeed <LF>] is used as the End-of-String (TOS) message. Each Data message must be terminated by a(<LF>).
+
Except during Learn String transfers, the carriage return character {< CR >} is not required before <LF>. Preceding
<LF>, <CR> is treated as “no operation’ and may be repeated as many times as permitted by the maximum string
length limitation.
When several program codes are sent in a Data message, a semicolon {;) must be used io delimit each program code
except the last one in the string.
Spaces (<SP>) are not aliowed within input Data messages except as defined in the program code format
description. |
The maximum length of a Data message string is 127 characters (including: semicolons, commas, <SP>, <CR>, and
<LF>). |
Errors in Data message syntax are trapped and can be reported via The HP-IB, For details about detecting and reporting format
errors refer to the "HP-IB Syntax Errors’ Detailed Operating Instruction.

Program Order Considerations. Measurement System functions may be programmed in practically any order from the HP-
iB. However, it is recommended that program code sequences should be in the same order used for front-panel operation.
Generally, this requires that functions be set up starting with the most basic parameter to be changed. For example, before
entering channel 2 deflection factor, turn on channel 2. |
If a plug-in or internal option for the instrument imposes any other order considerations, the manual for that option provides
the necessary programming information.
Table 3-5 lists typical processing times for some sample Data messages. To minimize the processing time in a given
application, use the learn string and save/recall registers to establish instrument configuration. When sending a series of
program codes to the 1980A/B, processing time can be reduced by combining them into as few Data messages as possible.
For example, note the execution time for the last two Data messages in table 3-5.
Program Code Format. Program codes consist of a two letter function identifier {i.e., prefix} and a parameter field. Suffixes
are not used in 1980A/B program codes. The two letter identifier is a mnemonic that defines the major instrument function
being addressed. Depending upon the identifier, the associated parameter field may contain zero, one, or multiple
parameters. The general rules of program code format are:
The 1980A/B sends and receives Data messages in standard ASCII code.
The instrument responds equally to upper and lower case characters.
Parameter fields containing multiple parameters require a comma {,} to delimit individual parameters.
Program codes are space sensitive, Within program codes, spaces are accepted only immediately following function
identifiers or parameter delimiters. (Exponential numericentries use the character “"E’ or “e” as a delimiter between
the mantissa and the exponent, spaces may follow “E”, “e”, or comma.)
Program code parameters are of five types, these are: integers, decimals, exponentials, ASCII character strings, and binary
data. Integer, decimal, and exponential parameters can be signed or unsigned. Specific format requirements for all program
codes are given inthe Detailed Operating Instructions section of this manual. They are also condensed in the HP-1B Codes and
Format Summary.
Errors in program code format can be trapped and reported via the HP-IB. Refer to the "HP-IB Syntax Errors’ Detailed
Operating Instruction for a description of how to detect and report program code format errors.

Figure 3-12. 1980A/B Input Data Message Examples
3-31. Sending the Data Message.
The instrument can send Data messages in local or remote mode, when it is addressed to talk or in the talk-only mode.
Note
Before the instrument is addressed to talk, the desired output data must be
specified with the appropriate input Data message. Otherwise, the Measurement
System outputs the ASCII character “E” by defaultto complete the bus transaction.
Output Data Message Format. Output Data messages inciude the settings of individual functions, instrument status
information or binary Learn String data. Excluding the Learn String, there are three output data types: integer, decimal, and
exponential. All output Data messages contain a leading space (< SP >) followed by the function value or status data, <CR >
and <LF > are sent as the EOS message for ati output data except the Learn String. The Learn String uses the EO! bus control
line to signal end-of-string.

3-32. Learn Mode.
If the Measurement System receives a TE” (Teach) program code andis then addressed to talk, it sends the Learn String. The
Learn String consists of 80, 8-bit bytes containing information about front panel configuration. This binary data can be stored
in the controller's memory for future use. The Learn String includes only those parameters that can be stored in the
instrument's internal Save/ Recall registers. The contents of the Save/Recall registers, however, are not included in the
Learn String. Refer to the “"Save/Recail” Detailed Operating Instruction for information about register limitations.
Note
The 80th byte of the Learn String is sent with the bus EOi line true, to indicate end-
of-string.
When the Measurement System is addressed to listen, the binary data can be returned to it in a 80 byte string. The
Measurement System interprets the first two bytes to determine that this is a Learn string. Following the 80th byte, the
transfer must be terminated with <CR=> and <LF>. When the <LF> is received, the instrument changes state according to
the Learn String contents.
Note
During the transfer of the Learn String, the instrument can not be readdressed. if it
is the transfer will be aborted. The 80 byte string should be sent or read by the
controller using a technique that does not readdress bus devices.
For more information about using the Learn String, refer to the “Learn Mode” Detailed Operating Instruction.
3-33. Receiving the Clear Message.
The Measurement System does not respond to the Clear message. However, the instrument can be placed in a known state
using the Preset menu function (HP-IB “IN” program code). Refer to the “Initialize” Detailed Operating Instruction for more
information,
3-27
ST E
Я ET I,
Receiving the Trigger Message.
The 1980A/8 does not respond to the Trigger message {GET bus command), although the message isreceived and available
to internal and plug-in options.
3-35. Receiving the Remote Message.
The Remote message has two parts. First, the remote enable bus control line {REN} is held true, then the device listen address
is sent by the controller, The Measurement System Is enabled to go into remote when REN goes true but it does not actually
switch into remote until addressed to listen the first time. No instrument settings are changed by the transition from local to
HP-IB status advisory to indicate remote mode.
3-36. Receiving the Local Message.
The Local message returns the Measurement System to front panel control. The Local message (GTL bus command}
addresses the instrument to listen and then switches it from remote to local mode. Hf the HP-1B status advisory is enabled, the
remote indicator {&) will turn off when the Local message is received. No instrument settings are changed by the remote-to-
local transition,
Although the Local message returns front panel control, it does not clear local lockout. Unless the instrument receives the
Clear Lockout/ Set Local message, if local lockout is in effect, it will return to local lockout mode the next time it goes to
remote.
3-37. Receiving the Local Lockout Message.
The Local Lockout message (LLO bus command) disables the Measurement System's front panel return-to-local keystroke
sequence. Local Lockout is accepted when the instrument is in either remote or local mode. Afterwards, whenever the
Instrument 1s in remote mode, lockout 1s in effect. While the instrument is in local lockout, the remote-{o-lccal transition can
only be made from the system controller by sending the Clear Lockout/Set Local message or the Local message.
3-38. Receiving the Clear Lockout/ Set Local Message.
The Clear Lockout/Set Local message (REN control line false} returns the Measurement System from remote to local mode
and clears the local lockout condition. No instrument settings are changed by this message. It is accepted while the
instrument is in either remote or local mode. if the instruments in remote mode, the remote indicator {i} is blanked when the
Clear Lockout/Set Local message is received.
3-39. Receiving the Pass Control Message.
The instrument does not impiement the controller subset, therefore, it does not respond to the Pass Control message.
3-40. Sending the Require Service Message.
The Measurement System sends the Require Service message (by setting the SRQ bus control line and bit 7 of the status byte
true) when a previously programmed condition occurs. The instrument can send the Require Service message in either local
or remote mode. The Require Service message is cleared when a serial poll is executed by the system controller. During serial
poll, the SRQ control line is reset immediately before the instrument places the Status Byte message on the bus. Figure 3-13

The Measurement System indicates having sent the Require Service message by displaying & in the HP-IB status advisory.
This indicator is turned off during the serial poll when the SRQ control line is reset.
M the Measurement System is set to either listen-oniy or talk-only mode, it can not send the Require Service message.
For complete information about programming the condition that causes the Require Service message, refer to the "Service

Figure 3-13, The Status Byte and the ROS Mask
3-41. Sending the Status Byte Message.
The Status Byte message consists of one 8-bit byte in which the bits are set according to the conditions describedin figure 3-
13. The Measurement System sends the Status Byte message when it is addressed to tatk and it receives the Serial Poll
Enable {SPE} bus command from the HP-IB system controller, After the message is transferred to the controller, ail bits are
cleared by the Serial Poll Disable (SPD) bus command, the Abort message, or if the instrument is unaddressed to tak.
if the instrument is set to either listen-only or talk-only mode, it does not respond to the SPE or SPD commands and can not
send the Status Byte.
The Measurement System has two modes for transferring status information with the status byte:
if the Required Service message is not enabled (that is, if the RQS mask value is 0}, a single status byte is available from
the instrument. The bits in this byte are set to indicate ali conditions that have occurred since the byte was last reset. In
this mode, the RQS bit (bit 7 of the status byte) is always false. Figure 3-14 contains a typical flowchart for reading
instrument status when the Require Service message is disabled.
if the Require Service message is enabled, as many as nine separate occurrences can be queued in a status byte
register stack. Each byte in the stack has two bits set true: The RQS bit (bit 7} and the bit correspondingto the condition
that occurred. The status register stack is read on a first-in, first-out basis by serial polling the Measurement System
repetitively until it does not send the Require Service message. If there are more than nine occurrances before the
register stack is read, the stack will contain the codes for the first eight conditions and for the last condition that
occurred. Figure 3-15 contains a flowchart for reading instrument status using the Require Service message.

3-47. HP-1B1/0 Check. «za
Description The following procedures check the Oscilloscope Measurement System's ability to process or send ali of the
applicable HP-IB messages described in table 3-3. In addition, the instrument’s ability to recognize its HP-1B
address is checked and all of the bus data, handshake, and control lines except DIO8 are set to both their true
and false states. These procedures do not check whether or not all Measurement System program codes are
being properly interpreted and executed by the instrument, however, if front panel operation is correct, the
program codes, in all likelyhood are correctly implemented. |
The validity of these checks is based upon the following assumptions:
The instrument performs correctly when operated in local mode, This can be verified with the
Confidence Test and the Memory Check (ROM Checksum and RAM Test) procedures in paragraphs 3-
45 and 3-46 respectively,
The bus controller properly executes HP-IB operations as defined by IEEE Std. 488.
The bus controller's HP-IB interface properly executes the MP-IB operations.

If the Measurement System appears to fail any of these HP-1B checks, the validity of the above assumptions
should be confirmed before attempting to service the instrument.
The controlier's HP-IB interface select code is assumed to be “7”. The Measurement System is assumed to be
in the addressabie mode with address "7" (T7/L7\ selected. This select code-address combination (that ts,
707) is not necessary for these checks to be valid. However, program lines in this procedure would have to be
modified for any other combination.
These checks are intended to be as independent of each other as possible. Nevertheless, the first four checks
should be performed in order before the other checks. Any special initialization or requirements for a check are
described at its beginning.

Description To maintain the specified delay time performance, execute the following delay self-calibration procedure
approximately once each hour,
Procedure The delay time self-cal can be executed with the key sequence:
3-38
Model 1980A/B | | Operation
Indication
Response
It can also be executed via the HP-IB by sending the Data message:
IN: SKO,2,1<CR><LF>
As the delay seif-cal is executing, the LED readout displays a number which represents the relative delay drift.
As the drift is nulled, this displayed number approaches zero. When the self-cal routine is finished, the
Measurement System is restored to the settings it had before the self-cal was initiated.
If the drift cannot be corrected by the self-cal routine, the instrument executes the self-cal repetitively until a
key is pressed or the LINE switch is cycled OFF and ON.
To express the delay drift in terms of percentage error, divide the value displayed in the LED readout by
1989.87. For example, if the value “30” is displayed, the drift is; 30/1999.87 =0.015%
If the self-calibration routine cannot correct the drift entirely, internal adjustment is required. Although the
Measurement System may still be functional, it does require servicing.

routine virtually eliminates baseline shift as vertical deflection factor is changed. The balance self-cal should
be performed whenever there is noticeable shift of the vertical baseline as deflection factor is changed.
To execute the balance seif-cal from the front panel of the 1980A/B, press the following key sequence:
The balance self-cal can be executed via HP-1B by sending the Data message:
IN;SKO, 2,2 <CR><LF>
Note
Do not apply any signals to channel 1 or 2 inputs while executing the balance self-cal procedure.
While balance self-cal is executing, advisory message SRL FAMHCE SELE CEL HI for CHE) Is displayed on |
the CRT. When the balance routine is finished, the Measurement System is restored to the same settings it
had before the self-cal was initiated.
If the balance routine cannot calibrate one of the vertical channels, an error message is displayed inthe LED
readout to indicate which channel failed. The instrument can be programmed to issue the Require Service
message to signal this failure, see the “Error Messages” and “Service Request Condition” Detailed Operating
Instructions for further information.
Although a vertical balance self-cal failure indicates the Measurement System should be checked by qualified
service personnel, the accuracy of measurements taken with the instrument are not impaired.

Operation Model 1980A/B
Description Autoscope finds the amplitude and period of signal inputs and displays them on the CRT. For many waveforms,
it provides a one keystroke setup of the 1980A /B. Autoscope is optimized for repetitive input waveforms with
the following characteristics:
frequency ........... 0 50 Hz to 100 MHz
amplitude ............... 20 mV to maximum input rating
Autoscope executes the following general procedure:
Preset the conditions listed in table 3-8.
Test signal amplitude at each vertical input. If a signal is found, adjust channel delection factor for
approximately 3 divisions of display. If no signals are found, display advisory and end routine.
Turn off channels with no signal input.
Select signal from lowest numbered channel as trigger source for main and delayed sweeps. Settrigger
level to +0.5 divisions.
Determine period of trigger source and set main sweep speed for approximately 2 cycles of display. Set
delayed sweep speed to 0.1 of main value.
Display input waveforms and return control to front-panel or HP-IB operator,
With selective autoscope, the operator can define which channels are to be autoranged. In addition, selective
autoscope preserves coupling, trigger source, and trigger level selections. Table 3-8 describes which functions
are preset and which are preserved by selective autoscope.

As the knob is rotated, the vaiue is immediately changed.
The Control Knob is a stepping control; either coarse or fine step resolution can be selected. in coarse, the
speed of knob rotation affects the step size so that changes can be quickly made. Fine provides vernier-like
control where step size is set for maximum resolution.
Accidental changes to parameters can be prevented by selecting hold mode. in hold, the knob is not assignedto
any variable function.
The Control Knob can also be assigned to variable functions via the HP-IB. In this special case, the knob is
enabled for local operation, even if the 1980A/B is in remote mode. This allows the selected function to be

Delay
Description The delay from the main sweep trigger until the start of the delayed sweep is expressed in terms of time or
trigger events, depending upon which delayed sweep mode is in effect, This instruction explains how to set the
delay factor for each of the delayed modes.
There are two basic modes for delay time entry from the front-panel of the 1980A/B. Normally the delay time
parameter step resolution is determined by the sweep speed of the displayed timebases. This is usuaily the
best mode of entry when making measurements on waveforms displayed on screen because the step
resolution is proportioned to the displayed waveform. A second basis for delay time step resolution is provided
by numerical entry mode. This mode allows specific delay values to be quickly entered. Table 3-9 describes the
step resolutions available for delay time entry.

more information about selecting delayed sweep mode.
If a delay time value is entered via HP-IB when numerical entry mode with coarse step resolution is selected,
the T980A/B only accepts two digits of the delay time value. If a delay time value with more than two digits is
entered, the value is truncated to two digits. To avoid this condition, ensure the delay time function is either in

Horizontal Mode
in V vs T scope made, four horizontal modes are avaliabie. The modes are: Main, main intensified, delayed, and
dual, Main displays vertical inputs with respect to the main timebase, Main intensified displays the vertical
inputs with respect to the main timebase, and intensifies the portion of the trace that occurs during delayed
sweep. Delayed displays the vertical inputs with respect to the delayed timebase, Dual displays both the main
intensified and the delayed sweep traces using the selected vertical mode {alternate ог спор).
In main mode, only the main timebase is on. The delayed timebase and trigger controls are not enabled.
Irn main intensified, delayed, and dual modes the main and delayed timebases are on. The main and delayed
sweeps are dependent on each other in two ways:
* Delayed sweep cannot begin until main sweep has been triggered.
x
Main sweep cannot repeat until delayed sweep is completed.
Uniike traditional scopes, the 1980A /B allows main and delayed sweep speeds to be set independently. Also,
the delay until start of delayed sweep is totally independent of the main sweep speed. This allows considerable
versatility in waveform measurement and viewing. For exampie, the first and last events of a block of serial
data can be displayed simultaneousiy at any sweep speed by triggering main at the first event and delaying
delayed sweep until the last event,

cause the Require Service message to be sent. However, if the status qualifier for HP-13 syntax is read, the
1980A/B outputs error code 6.

Description The 1980A/B can issue a Require Service message on the HP-IB under one or more operator selectable
Procedure
conditions. Whenever the enabled condition occurs, it sets both the bit corresponding to the condition andthe
RQS bit {bit 6} in the Status Byte, The bits set in the Status Byte are not cleared unless the Status Byte is read
{by serial polling}, or the LINE switch is cycled.
If more than one enabled condition occurs before the Status Byte is read, the 1980A/B queues them, eachina
separate byte, inthe order inwhich they happened. Up to 8 conditions (Status Bytes) can be stacked inthis way.
The stack must be read, byte by byte, using successive serial polls. Each byte contains an RQS bit so that the
Instrument will issue and reissue the Request Service message until the entire stack is cleared.
For applications where the ROS interrupt is inconvenient or unnecessary, the Require Service message can he
inhibited. In this mode, a single Status Byte register in the 1280A/B traps the occurance of all of the 7
conditions. Although the instrument will not issue the Require Service message, the Status Byte may stiii be
read by seríal polling.
Supplemental information about status conditions that occur is contained in the status qualifier registers.
These can be read to determine which error occurred, which key was pressed, etc. The qualifier registers can
be read without reading the Status Byte message if desired.
The instrument status registers are not accessible from the front-panel.
The Status Byte is read via the serial poll sequence described in figures 3-14 and 3-15.
