General Information
Introduction
This HP 8568B Tests and Adjustments Manual contains two sections:
Performance Tests and Adjustments Procedures. The Performance
Tests provided should be performed for the following reasons:
w If the test equipment for the Operation Verification Program is not
available.
n
If the instrument does not pass all of the Operation Verification
tests.
w For complete verification of specifications not covered by the
Operation Verification program.
The adjustment procedures should be performed for the following
reasons:
w If the results of a performance test are not within the specifications.
w After the replacement of a part or component that affects electrical
performance.
Warning
The adjustment procedures require access to the interior of the
instrument and therefore should only be performed by qualified
service personnel. There are voltages at many points in the
instrument which can, if contacted, cause personal injury. Be
extremely careful. Adjustments should be performed only by
trained service personnel.
Power is still applied to this instrument with the LINE switch in
STANDBY. There is no OFF position on the LINE switch. Before
removing or installing any assembly or printed circuit board,
remove the power cord from the rear of both instruments and
wait for the MAINS indicators (red LEDs) to go completely out.
Capacitors inside the instrument may still be charged even if the
instrument has been disconnected from its source of power.
Use a non-metallic tuning tool whenever possible.

Performance Tksts
Introduction
Verification of
Specifications
The procedures in this section test the instrument’s electrical
performance using the Specifications in the Installation and
Verification Manual as the performance standards. None of the
tests require access to the interior of the instrument. The manual
Performance Tests provided in this section should be performed only
if semi-automatic test equipment (for Operation Verification) is not
available or the Performance Test is not in the Operation Verification
Program. (Refer to the Installation and Verification Manual for
information on Operation Verification.)
When a complete verification of specifications is required, proceed as
follows:
1. Run the Operation Verification Program.
2. The Operation Verification Program verifies compliance with
specifications of all tests it performs. The tests not performed by
the Operation Verification Program must be done manually and are
as follows:
n
Center Frequency Readout Accuracy
n
Spurious Responses
H Fast Sweep Time Accuracy
n
n
1st LO Output Amplitude Responses
Frequency Reference Error
If the results of a performance test are marginally within
specification, go to the Adjustments section of this manual and
perform the related adjustment procedures. When an adjustment is
directly related to a performance test, the adjustment procedure is
referenced under RELATED ADJUSTMENT in the performance test.
Calibration Cycle
This instrument requires periodic verification of performance. The
instrument should have a complete verification of specifications at
least every six months.

Equipment Required
Test Record
Note
Equipment required for the manual performance tests and
adjustments is listed in ‘Ihble 2-1, Recommended Test Equipment,
at the beginning of this manual. Any equipment that satisfies the
critical specifications given in the list may be substituted for the
recommended model.
The Operation Verification Program provides a detailed test record
when a printer is used with the controller. If manual performance
tests are done, results of the performance tests may be tabulated in
the HP 8568B Performance Test Record at the end of this section. The
HP 8568B Performance Test Record lists all of the tested specifications
and the acceptable ranges for the measurement values obtained
during the tests.
Allow l/2-hour warm-up time for the HP 8568B before beginning the
Performance Tests.

Description
A synthesized signal source that is phase-locked to a known frequency
standard is used to input a signal to the analyzer. The frequency
readout of the analyzer is compared to the actual input frequency
for several different frequency settings over the analyzer’s range.
The signal source is phase-locked to a standard known to be as
accurate as the analyzer’s internal frequency reference to minimize
the “frequency reference error x center frequency” term of the
specification.

Description
Frequency Span accuracy is determined by measuring a frequency at
5% of sweep and then at 95% of sweep. These frequencies correspond
to half a division from each edge of the CRT.
The spans chosen are based on the architecture of the HP 8568B RF

Preferred Procedure
This test is for sweep times 220 ms. For faster sweep times, refer to
Fast Sweep Time Accuracy Test (Test 19).
A universal counter is connected to the PENLIFT RECORDER
OUTPUT (on the rear panel) of the spectrum analyzer. The counter is
used in time interval mode to determine the “pen down” (sweep time)
interval of the PENLIFT RECORDER OUTPUT. The penlift output
voltage level corresponds directly to the sweeping of the analyzer
(pen down = OV) and not-sweeping of the analyzer (pen up = 15V). A
DVM is used to set the appropriate trigger level for the counter.
Alternate Procedure
Perform this procedure if the equipment for the preferred procedure
is unavailable.
Sweep time accuracy for sweep times 220 ms can also be measured
using the HP 8568B’s internal frequency counter for a time interval
measurement.

Description
Frequency response at both analyzer inputs is tested by slowly
sweeping a flat signal source over the frequency range and observing
the peak-to-peak variation in trace amplitude. The test is divided into
three parts. First, the response is tested from 20 MHz to 1.5 GHz
with a power-meter-leveled synthesized sweeper. Next, a frequency
synthesizer is used to check the response from 100 kHz to 20 MHz.
Finally, SIGNAL INPUT 1 is tested from 100 Hz to 100 kHz with a
function generator.

Specification
Assuming the internal calibration signal is used to calibrate the
reference level at -10 dBm and the input attenuator is fixed at 10 dB,
any changes in reference level from the -10 dB setting will contribute
to IF gain uncertainty as shown:
Uncertainty (uncorrected; 20 - 30°C)

Description
The IF gain steps are tested over the entire range from 0 dBm to
-129.9 dBm using an RF substitution method. The 10 dB, 2 dB, and
0.1 dB steps are compared against a calibrated signal source provided
by an HP 3335A Frequency Synthesizer.

Harmonic distortion (second and third) is tested using a signal source
and a low-pass filter. The LPF insures that the harmonics measured
are generated by the spectrum analyzer and not by the signal source.
Spurious responses due to image frequencies, out-of-band mixing, and

The triangular wave output of a function generator is used to
modulate a 500 MHz signal which is applied to the spectrum analyzer
SIGNAL INPUT. The signal is demodulated in the zero span mode to
display the triangular waveform. Sweep time accuracy for sweep
times ~20 ms is tested by checking the spacing of the signal peaks on
the displayed waveform.

Time Base Adjustment
Aging Rate
<l x 10eg/day and ~2.5 x 10m7 year; attained after 30 days warmup
from cold start at 25°C.
Temperature Stability
<7 x lo-’ 0” to 5E9’C. Frequency is within 1 x lo-” of final stabilized
frequency within 30 minutes.
Description
The frequency of the spectrum analyzer time base oscillator is
measured directly using a frequency counter locked to a frequency
reference which has an aging rate less than one-tenth that of the
time base specification. After a 30 day warmup period, a frequency
measurement is made. The analyzer is left undisturbed for a 24-hour
period and a second reading is taken. The frequency change over this
24-hour period must be less than one part in 10’.
Note
This test requires that the spectrum analyzer be turned on (not in
STANDBY) for a period of 30 days to ensure that the frequency
reference attains its aging rate. However, after aging rate is attained,
the frequency reference typically attains aging rate again in 72 hours
of operation after being off for a period not exceeding 24 hours.
Care must be taken not to disturb the spectrum analyzer during the
24-hour test interval, since the frequency reference is sensitive to
shock and vibration. The frequency reference should remain within
its attained aging rate if the instrument is left on, the instrument
orientation with respect to the earth’s magnetic field is maintained,
and the instrument does not sustain any mechanical shock. Frequency
changes due to orientation with respect to the earth’s magnetic field
and altitude changes will usually be nullified when the instrument
is returned to its original position. Frequency changes due to
mechanical shock will usually appear as a fixed frequency error.
The frequency reference is also sensitive to temperature changes;
for this reason the ambient temperature near the instrument at the
first measurement time and the ambient temperature at the second
measurement time should not differ by more than 1°C.
Placing the spectrum analyzer in STANDBY mode turns the
instrument off while continuing to provide power for the frequency
reference oven, helping to minimize warmup time. However, the
frequency reference must be on to attain its aging rate.

maintenance, but only when Performance Tests cannot meet
specifications. Before attempting any adjustment, allow the
instrument to warm up for one hour. ‘lhble 3-1 is a cross reference of
Function Adjusted to the related Adjustment procedure. Table 3-2
lists all adjustable components by name, reference designator, and
function.

Safety
Considerations
Warning
Although this instrument has been designed in accordance with
international safety standards, this manual contains information,
cautions, and warnings which must be followed to ensure safe
operations and to retain the instrument in safe condition. Service and
adjustments should be performed only by qualified service personnel.
Adjustments in this section are performed with power supplied
to the instrument while protective covers are removed. There
are voltages at many points in the instrument which can,
if contacted, cause personal injury. Be extremely careful.
Adjustment should be performed only by trained service
personnel.
Power is still applied to this instrument with the LINE switch in
STANDBY. There is no OFF position on the LINE switch. Before
removing or installing any assembly or printed circuit board,
remove the power cord from the rear of both instruments and
wait for the MAINS indicators (red LEDs) to go completely out.
Capacitors inside the instrument may still be charged even if the
instrument has been disconnected from its source of power.
Use a non-metallic tuning tool whenever possible.
Equipment
Required
The equipment required for the adjustment procedures is listed
in ‘lkble l-l, Recommended Test Equipment, at the beginning of
this manual. If the test equipment recommended is not available,
substitutions may be used if they meet the “Critical Specifications”
listed in the table. The test setup used for an adjustment procedure is
referenced in each procedure.
Adjustment Tools
For adjustments requiring a non-metallic tuning tool, use fiber
tuning tool HP Part Number 8710-0033. In situations not requiring
non-metallic tuning tools, an ordinary small screwdriver or other
suitable tool is sufficient. However, it is recommended that you use a
non-metallic adjustment tool whenever possible. Never try to force
any adjustment control in the analyzer. This is especially critical when
tuning variable slug-tuned inductors and variable capacitors.

Note
This procedure is for IF-Display Sections with serial number prefixes
3001A and below. The procedure for serial prefixes 3004A and above
is located immediately after this procedure.
Note
This procedure should be performed whenever the AlAll High

Description
Warning
This procedure is intended for adjustment purposes only.
Voltages are present which, if contacted, could cause serious
personal injury. Approximately -4000 V dc can be present on
the AlA High Voltage assembly even when the ac line cord is
disconnected. Do not attempt to remove the AlA High-Voltage
Assembly from the instrument. Do not disconnect the CRT’s
post-accelerator cable; the CRT can hold a + 18 kV dc charge for
several days.
If for any reason the AlA High Voltage Assembly or the
post accelerator cable must be removed, refer to “Discharge
Procedure for High Voltage and CRT” at the end of this
adjustment procedure.
A 1OOO:l divider probe is used to measure the CRT cathode voltage.
First, the high-voltage probe is calibrated by comparing measurements
of the + 100 V dc supply voltage with and without the probe. Any
measurement error due to the use of the high-voltage probe is
calculated into the adjustment specification of the CRT cathode
voltage, which is adjusted with the AlA HV ADJUST control. When
the CRT cathode voltage is properly adjusted, the CRT filament
voltage will be +4.45 f0.04 V rms measured with CRT beam at
cut-off, which is required for maximum CRT life. The filament voltage
is referenced to the high-voltage cathode and can only be measured
directly with special equipment.

filament voltage is referenced to the high-voltage cathode and
can only be measured safely with a special high-voltage true-rms
voltmeter and probe.
1. Set the spectrum analyzer’s LINE switch to STANDBY.
2. Remove the top cover from the IF-Display Section, and connect
the equipment as shown in Figure 3-5 and described in the
following steps.
3. Set the DVM to the 100 V range, and connect the DVM to
AlA7TP3 (+ 100 V). Do not use the high-voltage probe. See
Figure 3-6 for the location of AlA7TP3.

Discharge Procedure
for High Voltage and
CRT
The adjustment procedures in this manual do not require the removal
or discharge of the AlA High-Voltage Regulator or CRT assemblies.
However, if for any reason the AlA High Voltage Regulator Assembly
or the post-accelerator cable must be removed, the following
procedure ensures the proper safety.
Warning
This procedure should be performed by qualified personnel only.
Voltages are present which, if contacted, could cause serious
personal injury. Approximately -4000 V dc is present on the

Description
Warning
This procedure is intended for adjustment purposes only.
Voltages are present which, if contacted, could cause serious
personal injury. Approximately -2400 V dc can be present on
the AlA High Voltage Regulator Assembly even when the ac
line cord is disconnected. Do not attempt to remove the AlA
High-Voltage Regulator Assembly from the instrument. Do not
disconnect the CRT’s post-accelerator cable; the CRT can hold a
+ 9500 V dc charge for several days.
If for any reason the AlA High Voltage Assembly or the
post accelerator cable must be removed, refer to “Discharge
Procedure for High Voltage and CRT” at the end of this
adjustment procedure.
A 1OOO:l divider probe is used to measure the CRT cathode voltage.
First, the high-voltage probe is calibrated by comparing measurements
of the + 120 V dc supply voltage with and without the probe. Any
measurement error due to the use of the high-voltage probe is
calculated into the adjustment specification of the CRT cathode
voltage, which is adjusted with the AlA HV ADJUST control. When
the CRT cathode voltage is properly adjusted, the CRT filament
voltage will be +6.00 kO.05 V rms measured with CRT beam at
cut-off, which is required for maximum CRT life. The filament voltage
is referenced to the high-voltage cathode and can only be measured
directly with special equipment.

The A4A3 Log Amplifier-Filter and A4A2 Log Amplifier Detector
are temperature compensated as a matched set at the factory. In
the event of a circuit failure, a new matched set must be ordered.
Contact your nearest HP Service Center.
First, the A4A2 Log Amplifier-Detector ZERO adjustment is checked
and adjusted if necessary, then the A4A3 Log Amplifier-Filter is set
for center frequency by injecting a signal and adjusting the bandpass
filter center adjustment for maximum DVM indication. The bandpass
filter amplitude is adjusted by monitoring the output of the filter
control line shorted and not shorted to the + 15V supply. Next, log
fidelity (gain and offset of the log curve) is adjusted by adjusting the
-12 VTV and the PIN diode attenuator. Last, the linear gain step
adjustments are performed to set the proper amount of step gain in
the linear mode of operation.

With the CAL OUTPUT signal connected to the RF INPUT, the 18.4
MHz oscillator can be adjusted with the FREQ ZERO control (on the
front panel) to peak the IF signal for maximum amplitude for the
center of the 3 MHz bandpass. Each of the five stages of the 3 MHz
Bandwidth Filter is adjusted for bandpass centering and symmetry.
Four crystal filter bypass networks are required for alignment of the
filter stages. See Figure 3-91 for information concerning the bypass
networks.
A stable 21.4 MHz signal is then applied to the IF section of the
instrument from a frequency synthesizer. Each of the first four stages
of the 3 MHz Bandwidth Filter is peaked in a 10 Hz bandwidth using
an oscilloscope display. The final stage is peaked using the spectrum
analyzer CRT display.
After all five filter stages are adjusted for centering, symmetry, and
peaking, the CAL OUTPUT signal is used to match the 10 Hz and 1
kHz bandwidth amplitudes.

Resolution Bandwidth Switching Uncertainty Test
The CAL OUTPUT signal is connected to the RF INPUT connector of
the instrument and controls are set to display the signal in a narrow
bandwidth. A marker is placed at the peak of the signal to measure
the peak amplitude. The bandwidth is changed to a wide bandwidth
and the Down/Up Converter is adjusted to place the peak amplitude
of the signal the same as the level of the narrow bandwidth signal.
Optionally, the input signal is removed and the IF signal is monitored
at the output of the Bandwidth Filters using a spectrum analyzer with
an active probe. The 18.4 MHz Local Oscillator and all harmonics are
then adjusted for minimum amplitude.

A27Al 10 MHz Quartz Crystal Oscillator
Center Frequency Readout Accuracy Test
The frequency of the internal 10 MHz Frequency Standard is
compared to a known frequency standard and adjusted for minimum
frequency error. This procedure does not adjust the short-term
stability or long-term stability of the 10 MHz Quartz Crystal Oscillator,
which are determined by characteristics of the particular oscillator
and the environmental and warmup conditions to which it has been
recently exposed. The spectrum analyzer must be ON continuously
(not in STANDBY) for at least 72 hours immediately prior to oscillator
adjustment to allow both the temperature and frequency of the
oscillator to stabilize.

Procedure
Note
The spectrum analyzer must be ON continuously (not in STANDBY) for
at least 72 hours immediately prior to oscillator adjustment to allow
both the temperature and frequency of the 10 MHz Quartz Crystal
Oscillator to stabilize. Adjustment should not be attempted before the
oscillator is allowed to reach its specified aging rate. Failure to allow
sufficient stabilization time could result in oscillator misadjustment.
The A27Al 10 MHz Quartz Crystal Oscillator (HP P/N 0960-0477)
will typically reach its specified aging rate again within 72 hours
after being switched off for a period of up to 24 hours. If extreme
environmental conditions were encountered during storage or
shipment (i.e. mechanical shock, temperature extremes) the oscillator
could require up to 30 days to achieve its specified aging rate.
1. Set the rear-panel FREQ REFERENCE switch on the spectrum
analyzer RF Section to INT.
Note
The +22 Vdc STANDBY supply provides power to the heater circuit in
the A27 10 MHz Frequency Standard assembly whenever line power
is applied to the RF Section. This allows the A27 10 MHz Frequency
Standard oven to remain at thermal equilibrium, minimizing
frequency drift due to temperature variations. The OVEN COLD
message should typically appear on the spectrum analyzer display for
10 minutes or less after line power is first applied to the RF Section.
Note
The rear-panel FREQ REFERENCE switch enables or disables the RF
Section +20 Vdc switched supply, which powers the oscillator circuits
in the A27 10 MHz Frequency Standard. This switch must be set to
INT and the spectrum analyzer must be switched ON continuously
(not in STANDBY) for at least 72 hours before adjusting the frequency
of the A27 10 MHz Frequency Standard.
2. Set the LINE switch to ON. Leave the spectrum analyzer ON
(not in STANDBY) and undisturbed for at least 48 hours to allow
the temperature and frequency of the A27 10 MHz Frequency
Standard to stabilize.
3. Press (SHIFT) TRACE B [CLEAR-WRITE] g to turn off the display. This
prolongs CRT life while the spectrum analyzer is unattended. To
turn the CRT back on press m TRACE B C-HOLD) h.
4. Connect the (Cesium Beam) Frequency Standard to the Frequency
Counter’s rear-panel TIMEBASE IN/OUT connector as shown in
Figure 3-52.
5. Disconnect the short jumper cable on the RF Section rear panel
from the FREQ REFERENCE INT connector. Connect this output
(FREQ REFERENCE INT) to INPUT A on the Frequency Counter.
A REF UNLOCK message should appear on the CRT display.

Two center frequencies are chosen: one which will tune the 249 MHz
Oscillator to its low-end frequency and one which will tune the 249
MHz Oscillator to the high-end frequency. The voltage is monitored
with a DVM at the output of the oscillator, and the oscillator
frequency is adjusted to produce the proper dc voltage output for
each frequency (low-end and high-end). Next, the 500 kHz Trap is
adjusted to null the 500 kHz sidebands using the sixth harmonic of the
249 MHz signal.

Adjusting A22R91 CW increases the sweeptime. If the difference
between the measured 20 ms sweep time and the target sweep time
is less than approximately 0.3 ms, adjust A22R91 for the target
sweeptime. Adjusting A22R91 to 3 times the difference noted in step

First, the voltage reference for the Shaping network is set by
measuring the voltage required to tune the 50 MHz Oscillator to its
high limit (57.5 MHz) and then setting the reference voltage (+ 15 VR)
to that voltage.
Next, the VT0 tuning accuracy is adjusted at both the low and high
end by setting the tune voltage to the proper levels to tune the VT0
to its low and high end limits (42.5 MHz and 57.5 MHz). This is done
using the output of the tuning DACS from the A22 Frequency Control;
therefore, it is necessary that the DAC adjustments on the Frequency
Control have been performed before adjusting the 50 MHz VTO.

A3A8 Analog-to-Digital Converter
The Analog-to-Digital Ramp Converter is adjusted at zero and
full-scale by injecting a 0 V dc input and + 10 V dc input and adjusting
the OFFS and GAIN controls until the ramp output at A3A8TPll
toggles high to low. This sets the horizontal end points for the CRT
trace display; when the sweep ramp input is at 0 V dc (the left
graticule edge), trace position 1 is set, and when the sweep ramp
input is at + 10 V de (the right graticule edge), trace position 1000 is
set.
This procedure requires a + 10 V dc source which is stable and
noise-free. A simple supply circuit which can be built with common
components is illustrated in Figure 3-93. If these components are
unavailable, the alternate procedure provided below (using only the
digital voltmeter) can then be used.

A frequency synthesizer and pulse/function generator are used
to input pulses to the spectrum analyzer. The amplitude of the
pulses is measured, and the impulse bandwidths are calculated for
each impulse bandwidth from 3 MHz to 1 kHz. The 6 dB resolution
bandwidths are then measured using the spectrum analyzer @iZZiZK~
function. The CAL OUTPUT signal is used as a stable signal source to
measure the 6 dB resolution bandwidths.
