In This Book
This guide, combined with the
HP 16500/16501A Programmer’s
Guide, provides you with the information
needed to program the HP 16554A and
HP 16555A/D logic analyzer modules.
Each module has its own reference to
supplement the mainframe manual since
not all mainframes will be configured with
the same modules.
This manual is organized in three parts.
Part 1 consists of chapters 1 and 2 which
contain general information and
instructions to help you get started.
Chapter 1 also contains:
• Mainframe system commands that are
frequently used with the logic analyzer
module
• HP 16554A/HP 16555A/HP 16555D
logic analyzer command tree
• Alphabetic command-to-subsystem
directory
Chapter 2 contains module-level
commands.
Part 2 consists of chapters 3 through 16
which contain the subsystem commands
for the logic analyzer and chapter 17
which contains information on the
SYSTem:DATA and SYSTem:SETup
commands for this module.

Part 3, chapter 18, contains program examples of actual tasks that show you
how to get started in programming the HP 16554A and HP 16555A/D logic
analyzers. These examples are written in HP BASIC 6.2; however, the
program concepts can be used in any other popular programming language.
Error messages for the HP 16554A and HP 16555A/D are included in generic
system error messages and are in the HP 16500/16501A Programmer’s
Guide.

Selecting the Module
Selecting the Module
Before you can program the logic analyzer, you must first "select" it. This
directs your commands to the logic analyzer.
To select the module, use the system command :SELect followed by the
numeric reference for the slot location of the logic analyzer (1 through 10
refering to slots A through J respectively). For example, if the logic analyzer
is in slot E, then the command:
:SELect
5
would select this module. For more information on the select command,
refer to the HP 16500/16501A Programmer’s Guide. It is available through
your HP Sales Office.
Programming the Logic Analyzer
A typical logic analyzer program will do the following:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
select the appropriate module
name a specified analyzer
specify the analyzer type
assign pods
assign labels
sets pod thresholds
specify a trigger condition
set up the display

Mainframe Commands
Mainframe Commands
These commands are part of the HP 16500/16501A mainframe system and
are mentioned here only for reference. For more information on these
commands, refer to the HP 16500/16501A Programmer’s Guide.
CARDcage? Query
The CARDcage query returns a string of integers which identifies the
modules that are installed in the mainframe. The returned string is in two
parts. The first five two-digit numbers identify the card type. The
identification number for the HP 16554A and HP 16555A/D logic analyzers is
34. A "−1" in the first part of the string indicates no card is installed in the
slot.
The five single-digit numbers in the second part of the string indicate which
card has the controlling software for the module; that is, where the master
card is located.
Example
12,11,−1,−1,34,2,2,0,0,5
A returned string of 12,11,-1,-1,34,2,2,0,0,5 means that an
oscilloscope time base card (ID number 11) is loaded in slot B and the
oscilloscope acquisition card (ID number 12) is loaded in slot A. The next
two slots (C and D) are empty (−1). Slot E contains a logic analyzer module
(ID number 34).
The next group of numbers (2,2,0,0,5) indicate that a two-card module is
installed in slots A and B with the master card in slot B. The "0" indicates an
empty slot, or the module software is not recognized or is not loaded. The
last digit (5) in this group indicates a one-card module is loaded in slot E.
Complete information for the CARDcage query is in the HP 16500/16501A
Programmer’s Guide.

Mainframe Commands
MENU Command/query
The MENU command selects a new displayed menu. The first parameter (X)
specifies the desired module. The optional, second parameter specifies the
desired menu in the module. The second parameter defaults to 0 if it is not
specified. The query returns the currently selected and displayed menu.

If a machine is turned off, its menus are not available. The Mixed Display is
available only when one or both analyzers are state analyzers.
SELect Command/query
The SELect command selects which module or intermodule will have parser
control. SELect 0 selects the intermodule, SELect 1 through 5 selects
modules A through E respectively. Values −1 and −2 select software options
1 and 2. The SELect query returns the currently selected module.
STARt Command
The STARt command starts the specified module. If the specified module is
configured for intermodule (group run), STARt will start all modules
configured as part of the intermodule run.
1–6
Programming the HP 16554A/ HP 16555A/HP 16555D
Mainframe Commands
STOP Command
The STOP command stops the specified module. If the specified module is
configured as part of an intermodule run, STOP will stop all associated
modules.
STARt and STOP are overlapped commands. Overlapped commands allow
execution of subsequent commands while the logic analyzer operations
initiated by the overlapped command are still in progress. For more
information, see *OPC and *WAI commands in Chapter 5 of the
HP 16500/16501A Programmer’s Guide.
RMODe Command/query
The RMODe command specifies the run mode (single or repetitive) for a
module. If the selected module is configured for intermodule, the
intermodule run mode will be set by this command. The RMODe query
returns the current setting.
SYSTem:ERRor? Query
The SYSTem:ERRor query returns the oldest error in the error queue. In
order to return all the errors in the error queue, a simple FOR/NEXT loop can
be written to query the queue until all errors are returned. Once all errors
are returned, the query will return zeros.
SYSTem:PRINt Command/query
The SYSTem:PRINt command initiates a print of the screen or listing buffer
over the current printer communication interface. The SYSTem:PRINt query
sends the screen or listing buffer data over the current controller
communication interface.
MMEMory Subsystem
The MMEMory Subsystem provides access to both internal disc drives for
loading and storing configurations.
INTermodule Subsystem
The INTermodule Subsystem commands are used to specify intermodule
arming between multiple modules.

Command Set Organization
Command Set Organization
The command set for the HP 16554A/HP 16555A/HP 16555D is divided into
module-level commands and subsystem commands. Module-level commands
are listed in Chapter 2, "Module Level Commands" and each of the subsystem
commands are covered in their individual chapters starting with Chapter 3,
"MACHine Subsystem."
Each of these chapters contains a description of the subsystem, syntax
diagrams, and the commands in alphabetical order. The commands are
shown in long form and short form using upper and lowercase letters. For
example, LABel indicates that the long form of the command is LABEL and
the short form is LAB. Each of the commands contain a description of the
command and its arguments, the command syntax, and a programming
example.
Figure 1-1 on the following page shows the command tree for the
HP 16554A/HP 16555A/HP 16555D logic analyzer module. The (x) following
the SELect command at the top of the tree represents the slot number where
the logic analyzer module is installed. The number may range from 1 through
10, representing slots A through J, respectively.

Module Status Reporting
Module Status Reporting
Each module reports its status to the Module Event Status Register
(MESR<N>), which in turn reports to the Combined Event Status Register
(CESR) in the HP 16500/16501A mainframe (see HP 16500/16501A
Programmer’s Guide chapter 6). The Module Event Status Register is
enabled by the Module Event Status Enable Register (MESE<N>).
The MESE<N> and MESR<N> instructions are not used in conjunction with
the SELect command, so they are not listed in the HP 16554A/HP 16555A/
HP 16555D’s command tree.
The following descriptions of the MESE<N> and MESR<N> instructions
provide the module specific information needed to enable and interpret the
contents of the registers.

MESE<N>
MESE<N>
Command
:MESE<N><enable_mask>
The MESE<N> command sets the Module Event Status Enable register bits.
The MESE register contains a mask value for the bits enabled in the MESR
register. A one in the MESE will enable the corresponding bit in the MESR, a
zero will disable the bit.

Module Level Commands
ARMLine
ARMLine
Command
:ARMLine MACHine<N>
The ARMLine command selects which machine generates the arm out signal
on the IMB (intermodule bus). This command is only valid when two
analyzers are on. However, the query is always valid.
<N>
{1|2}
Example
OUTPUT XXX;":ARMLINE MACHINE1"
Query
:ARMLine?
If the analyzer is set up for OR’d triggering, then the ARMLine query returns
an empty string. This cannot be used for setting up OR’d triggering.
Returned Format
[:ARMLine]{MACHine<N>|}<NL>
Example
OUTPUT XXX;":ARMLine?"
DBLock
Command
:DBLock {PACKed | UNPacked}
The DBLock command specifies the data block format that is contained in
the response from a :SYSTem:DATA? query. See Chapter 17 for more
information on the :SYSTem:DATA command and query.
The PACKed option (default) uploads data in a compressed format. This
option is used to upload data for archiving, or for reloading back into the
analyzer. When an analyzer configuration is saved to disk, the PACKed data
format is always used (regardless of the current DBLock selection).
2–5
Module Level Commands

MACHine Subsystem
Introduction
The MACHine subsystem contains the commands that control the
machine level of operation of the logic analyzer. Some of the functions
are normally found in the Trigger menu. These commands are:
• ARM
• LEVelarm
The functions of three of these commands reside in the State/Timing
Configuration menu. These commands are:
• ASSign
• NAME
• TYPE
Even though the functions of the following commands reside in the
Format menu they are at the machine level of the command tree and
are therefore located in the MACHine subsystem. These commands
are:
• REName
• RESource

MACHine
Selector
:MACHine<N>
The MACHine <N> selector specifies which of the two analyzers (machines)
available in the module the commands or queries following will refer to.
Because the MACHine<N> command is a root level command, it will normally
appear as the first element of a compound header.
<N>
Example
{1|2}
(the machine number)
OUTPUT XXX; ":MACHINE1:NAME ’TIMING’"
3–4
MACHine Subsystem
ARM
ARM
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:ARM <arm_source>
The ARM command specifies the arming source of the specified analyzer
(machine). The RUN option disables the arm source. For example, if you do
not want to use either the intermodule bus or the other machine to arm the
current machine, you specify the RUN option.
If you are using an HP 16500C mainframe, you can set up OR’d Triggering by
arming the module from INTermodule when intermodule is set to Group Run
with OR TRIGGER. See the HP 16500C Programmer’s Guide for details.
<arm_source>
{RUN|INTermodule|MACHine{1|2}}
Example
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE1:ARM MACHINE2"
Query
:MACHine{1|2}:ARM?
The ARM query returns the source that the current analyzer (machine) will
be armed by.
Returned Format
[:MACHine{1|2}:ARM] <arm_source>
Example
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE1:ARM?"
3–5
MACHine Subsystem
ASSign
ASSign
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:ASSign <pod_list>
The ASSign command assigns pods to a particular analyzer (machine). The
ASSign command will assign two pods for each pod number you specify
because pods must be assigned to analyzers in pairs. NONE clears all pods
from the specified analyzer (machine) and places them in the "unassigned"
category.
If you specify a pod number greater than currently available, the logic
analysis system generates an "Argument out of range" error.
<pod_list>
<pod>#
Example
{NONE | <pod >#[, <pod >#]...}
an integer from 1 to 12
This example assigns pod pairs 1/2 and 5/6 to machine 1:
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE1:ASSIGN 5, 2, 1"
Query
:MACHine{1|2}:ASSign?
The ASSign query returns which pods are assigned to the current analyzer
(machine).
Returned Format
[:MACHine{1|2}:ASSign] <pod_list><NL>
Example
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE1:ASSIGN?"

MACHine Subsystem
LEVelarm
LEVelarm
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:LEVelarm <arm_level>
The LEVelarm command allows you to specify the sequence level for a
specified machine that will be armed by the Intermodule Bus or the other
machine. This command is only valid if the specified machine is on and the
arming source is not set to RUN with the ARM command.
<arm_level>
integer from 1 to 11 representing sequence level
Example
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE1:LEVELARM 2"
Query
:MACHine{1|2}:LEVelarm?
The LEVelarm query returns the current sequence level receiving the arming
for a specified machine.

NAME
NAME
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:NAME <machine_name>
The NAME command allows you to assign a name of up to 10 characters to a
particular analyzer (machine) for easier identification. Spaces are valid
characters.
<machine_name>
string of up to 10 alphanumeric characters
Example
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE1:NAME ’DRAM TEST’"
Query
:MACHine{1|2}:NAME?
The NAME query returns the current analyzer name as an ASCII string.
Returned Format

Example
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE1:NAME?"
REName
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:REName {{<res_id>, <new_text>} |
DEFault}
The REName command allows you to assign a specific name of up to eight
characters to terms A through J, Range 1 and 2, Timer 1 and 2, and Edge 1
and 2. The terms do not have to be assigned to the specified machine. The
DEFault option sets all resource term names to the default names assigned
when turning on the instrument.

Example
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE1:RENAME? D"
RESource
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:RESource {<res_id>[,<res_id>]...}
The RESource command allows you to assign resource terms A through G
and I, Range 1 and 2, and Timer 1 and 2 to a particular analyzer.
In the timing analyzer only, two additional resource terms are available.
These terms are Edge 1 and 2. These terms are always assigned to the
machine that is configured as the timing analyzer.
In state analyzers that are not configured for high speed, terms H and J are
also available. H and J are not available to timing or high-speed analyzers.
<res_id>
<state_terms>
<state_terms> for high-speed state analyzer or
{<state_terms|H|J} for 100-MHz state analyzer or
{<state_terms>|EDGE{1|2}} for timing analyzer

MACHine Subsystem
TYPE
Example
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE1:RESOURCE A,C,RANGE1"
Query
:MACHine{1|2}:RESOURCE?
The RESource query returns the current resource terms assigned to the
specified analyzer. If no resource terms are assigned, no <res_id> is returned.
Returned Format
[:MACHine{1|2}:RESOURCE] <res_id>[,<res_id>,...]<NL>
Example
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE1:RESOURCE?"
TYPE
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:TYPE <analyzer type>
The TYPE command specifies what type a specified analyzer (machine) will
be. The analyzer types are state or timing. State Compare (COMPare) and
SPA are considered to be state analyzers because they use an external clock,
but need to specified as COMPare or SPA.
The TYPE command also allows you to turn off a particular machine.
Only one timing analyzer can be specified at a time.

WLISt Subsystem
Introduction
The commands in the WLISt (Waveforms/LISting) subsystem control
the X and O marker placement on the waveforms portion of the
Timing/State mixed mode display. The XSTate and OSTate queries
return what states the X and O markers are on. Because the markers
can only be placed on the timing waveforms, the queries return what
state (state acquisition memory location) the marked pattern is stored
in.
In order to have mixed mode, one machine must be a state analyzer
with time tagging on (use MACHine<N>:STRigger:TAG TIME).

INSert
INSert
Command
:WLISt:INSert [<module_spec>,]<label_name>
[,{<bit_id>|OVERlay|ALL}]
The INSert command inserts waveforms in the timing waveform display. The
waveforms are added from top to bottom up to a maximum of 96 waveforms.
Once 96 waveforms are present, each time you insert another waveform, it
replaces the last waveform.
Time-correlated waveforms from the oscilloscope and another logic analyzer
module can also be inserted in the logic analyzer’s timing waveforms display.
Oscilloscope waveforms occupy the same display space as three logic
analyzer waveforms. When inserting waveforms from the oscilloscope or
another logic analyzer module, the optional first parameter must be used,
which is the module specifier. 1 through 10 corresponds to modules A
through J. If you do not specify the module, the selected module is assumed.
The second parameter specifies the label name that will be inserted. The
optional third parameter specifies the label bit number, overlay, or all. If a
number is specified, only the waveform for that bit number is added to the
screen.
If you specify OVERlay, all the bits of the label are displayed as a composite
overlaid waveform. If you specify ALL, all the bits are displayed sequentially.
If you do not specify the third parameter, ALL is assumed.

SFORmat
SFORmat
Selector
:MACHine{1|2}:SFORmat
The SFORmat (State Format) selector is used as a part of a compound
header to access the settings in the State Format menu. It always follows the
MACHine selector because it selects a branch directly below the MACHine
level in the command tree.
Example
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE2:SFORMAT:MASTER J, RISING"
CLOCk
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:SFORmat:CLOCk<N> <clock_mode>
The CLOCk command selects the clocking mode for a given pod when the
pod is assigned to the state analyzer. When the MASTer option is specified,
the pod will sample all channels on the master clock. When the SLAVe option
is specified, the pod will sample all channels on the slave clock. When the
DEMultiplex option is specified, only one pod of a pod pair can acquire data.
The bits of the selected pod will be clocked by the demultiplex master for
labels with bits assigned under the Master pod. The same bits will be clocked
by the demultiplex slave for labels with bits assigned under the Slave pod.
The master clock always follows the slave clock when both are used.

LABel
Query
:MACHine{1|2}:SFORmat:CLOCk<N>?
The CLOCk query returns the current clocking mode for a given pod.
Returned Format
[:MACHine{1|2}:SFORmat:CLOCK<N>] <clock_mode><NL>
Example
OUTPUT XXX; ":MACHINE1:SFORMAT:CLOCK2?"
LABel
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:SFORmat:LABel <name>[,<polarity>,
<clock_bits>, <upper_bits>,<lower_bits>
[,<upper_bits>,<lower_bits>]...]
The LABel command allows you to specify polarity and assign channels to
new or existing labels. If the specified label name does not match an existing
label name, a new label will be created.
The order of the pod-specification parameters is significant. The first one
listed will match the highest-numbered pod assigned to the machine you’re
using. Each pod specification after that is assigned to the next highestnumbered pod. This way the specifications match the left-to-right
descending order of the pods you see on the Format display. Not including
enough pod specifications results in the lowest numbered pod(s) being
assigned a value of zero (all channels excluded). If you include more pod
specifications than there are pods for that machine, the extra ones will be
ignored. However, an error is reported any time more than 22 pod
specifications are listed.
The polarity can be specified at any point after the label name.
Because pods contain 16 channels, the format value for a pod must be
between 0 and 65535 (216−1). When giving the pod assignment in binary,
each bit will correspond to a single channel. A "1" in a bit position means the
associated channel in that pod is assigned to the label. A "0" in a bit position
means the associated channel in that pod is excluded from the label. Leading
zeroes may be omitted. For example, assigning #B1111001100 is equivalent
to entering "......****..**.." through the touchscreen.
A label can not have a total of more than 32 channels assigned to it.

MASTer
MASTer
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:SFORmat:MASTer <clock_id>,
<clock_spec>
The MASTer clock command allows you to specify a master clock for a given
machine. The master clock is used in all clocking modes (Master, Slave, and
Demultiplexed). Each command deals with only one clock (J,K,L,M);
therefore, a complete clock specification requires four commands, one for
each clock. Edge specifications (RISing, FALLing, or BOTH) are ORed.
At least one clock edge must be specified.
<clock_id>
<clock_spec>
{J|K|L|M}
{OFF|RISing|FALLing|BOTH}
Example
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE2:SFORMAT:MASTER J, RISING"
Query
:MACHine{1|2}:SFORmat:MASTer? <clock_id>
The MASTer query returns the clock specification for the specified clock.

SETHold
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:SFORmat:SETHold
<pod_num>,<set_hold_value>
The SETHold (setup/hold) command allows you to set the setup and hold
specification for the state analyzer.
Even though the command requires integers to specify the setup and hold,
the query returns the current settings in a string. For example, if you send
the integer 0 for the setup and hold value, the query will return 3.5/0.0 ns as
an ASCII string when you have one clock and one edge specified.

Qualifier
The qualifier for the state trigger subsystem can be terms A through J, Timer
1 and 2, and Range 1 and 2. In addition, qualifiers can be the NOT boolean
function of terms, timers, and ranges. The qualifier can also be an expression
or combination of expressions as shown below and figure 6-2, "Complex
Qualifier," on page 6-10.
The following parameters show how qualifiers are specified in all commands
of the STRigger subsystem that use <qualifier>.

Examples
Qualifiers are quoted strings and, therefore, need quotes.
Expressions are evaluated from left to right.
Parentheses are used to change the order evaluation and are optional.
An expression must map into the combination logic presented in the
combination pop-up menu (see figure 6-2 on page 6-10).

STRigger (STRace)
Selector
:MACHine{1|2}:STRigger
The STRigger (STRace) (State Trigger) selector is used as a part of a
compound header to access the settings found in the State Trace menu. It
always follows the MACHine selector because it selects a branch directly
below the MACHine level in the command tree.
Example
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE1:STRIGGER:TAG TIME"
ACQuisition
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:STRigger:ACQuisition

BRANch
BRANch
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:STRigger:BRANch<N>
<branch_qualifier>,<to_level_number>
The BRANch command defines the branch qualifier for a given sequence
level. When this branch qualifier is matched, it will cause the sequencer
to jump to the specified sequence level. The branch qualifier functions like
the "else on" branch of a sequence level.
The terms used by the branch qualifier (A through J, except in 110-MHz
mode) are defined by the TERM command. The meaning of IN_RANGE and
OUT_RANGE is determined by the RANGE command.
Within the limitations shown by the syntax definitions, complex expressions
may be formed using the AND and OR operators. Expressions are limited to
what you could manually enter through the State Trigger menu. Regarding
parentheses, the syntax definitions on the next page show only the required
ones. Additional parentheses are allowed as long as the meaning of the
expression is not changed. Figure 6-2 shows a complex expression as seen in
the State Trigger menu.
Example
The following statements are all correct and have the same meaning. Notice
that the conventional rules for precedence are not followed. The expressions
are evaluated from left to right.

Figure 6-2
Complex qualifier
Figure 6-2 is a front panel representation of the complex qualifier (a Or b)
Or (f Or g).

STRigger (STRace) Subsystem
CLEar
Example
The following example would be used to specify the complex qualifier shown
in figure 6-2.
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE1:STRIGGER:BRANCH1 ’((A OR B) AND (F OR
G))’, 2"
Terms A through E, RANGE 1, and TIMER 1 must be grouped together
and terms F through J, RANGE 2, and TIMER 2 must be grouped together.
In the first level, terms from one group may not be mixed with terms from the
other. For example, the expression ((A OR IN_RANGE2) AND (C OR G)) is
not allowed because the term C cannot be specified in the F, G, and I group.
In the first level, the operators you can use are AND, NAND, OR, NOR,
XOR, NXOR. Either AND or OR may be used at the second level to join the two
groups together. It is acceptable for a group to consist of a single term.
Thus, an expression like (B AND G) is legal, since the two operands are both
simple terms from separate groups.
CLEar
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:STRigger:CLEar
{All|SEQuence|RESource}
The CLEar command allows you to clear all settings in the State Trigger
menu, clear only the Sequence levels, or clear only the resource term
patterns. Cleared settings are replaced with the defaults.

FIND
FIND
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:STRigger:FIND<N>
<proceed_qualifier>,<occurrence>
The FIND command defines the proceed qualifier for a given sequence level.
The qualifier tells the state analyzer when to proceed to the next sequence
level. When this proceed qualifier is matched the specified number of times,
the sequencer will proceed to the next sequence level. In the sequence level
where the trigger is specified, the FIND command specifies the trigger
qualifier (see SEQuence command).
The terms A through J are defined by the TERM command. The meaning of
IN_RANGE and OUT_RANGE is determined by the RANGe command.
Expressions are limited to what you could manually enter through the State
Trigger menu. Regarding parentheses, the syntax definitions below show
only the required ones. Additional parentheses are allowed as long as the
meaning of the expression is not changed. See page 6-9 for a detailed
example.

TERM
TERM
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:STRigger:TERM <term_id>,
<label_name>,<pattern>
The TERM command allows you to specify a pattern recognizer term in the
specified machine. Each command deals with only one label in the given
term; therefore, a complete specification could require several commands.
Since a label can contain 32 or fewer bits, the range of the pattern value will
be between 232 − 1 and 0. When the value of a pattern is expressed in binary,
it represents the bit values for the label inside the pattern recognizer term.
Because the pattern parameter may contain don’t cares and be represented
in several bases, it is handled as a string of characters rather than a number.
Eight of the 10 terms (A through G and I) are always available for either
machine but not both simultaneously. Terms H and J are not available unless
the machine is configured as a state analyzer running in NORMal mode.
If you send the TERM command to a machine with a term that has not been
assigned to that machine, an error message "Legal command but settings
conflict" is returned.

OPATtern
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:SLISt:OPATtern
<label_name>,<label_pattern>
The OPATtern command allows you to construct a pattern recognizer term
for the O Marker which is then used with the OSEarch criteria when moving
the marker on patterns. Because this command deals with only one label at a
time, a complete specification could require several invocations.
When the value of a pattern is expressed in binary, it represents the bit
values for the label inside the pattern recognizer term. In whatever base is
used, the value must be between 0 and 232 − 1, since a label may not have
more than 32 bits. Because the <label_pattern> parameter may contain
don’t cares, it is handled as a string of characters rather than a number.
<label_name>

OSEarch
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:SLISt:OSEarch <occurrence>,<origin>
The OSEarch command defines the search criteria for the O marker, which is
then used with associated OPATtern recognizer specification when moving
the markers on patterns. The origin parameter tells the marker to begin a
search with the trigger, the start of data, or with the X marker. The actual
occurrence the marker searches for is determined by the occurrence
parameter of the OSEarch recognizer specification, relative to the origin. An
occurrence of 0 places the marker on the selected origin. With a negative
occurrence, the marker searches before the origin. With a positive
occurrence, the marker searches after the origin.

RUNTil
RUNTil
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:SLISt:RUNTil <run_until_spec>
The RUNTil (run until) command allows you to define a stop condition when
the trace mode is repetitive. Specifying OFF causes the analyzer to make
runs until either the display’s STOP field is touched or the STOP command is
issued.
There are four conditions based on the time between the X and O markers.
Using this difference in the condition is effective only when time tags have
been turned on (see the TAG command in the STRace subsystem). These
four conditions are as follows:
•
•
•
•
The difference is less than (LT) some value.
The difference is greater than (GT) some value.
The difference is inside some range (INRange).
The difference is outside some range (OUTRange).
End points for the INRange and OUTRange should be at least 8 ns apart since
this is the minimum time resolution of the time tag counter.

XPATtern
XPATtern
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:SLISt:XPATtern
<label_name>,<label_pattern>
The XPATtern command allows you to construct a pattern recognizer term
for the X marker which is then used with the XSEarch criteria when moving
the marker on patterns. Since this command deals with only one label at a
time, a complete specification could require several invocations.
When the value of a pattern is expressed in binary, it represents the bit
values for the label inside the pattern recognizer term. In whatever base is
used, the value must be between 0 and 232 − 1, since a label may not have
more than 32 bits. Because the <label_pattern> parameter may contain
don’t cares, it is handled as a string of characters rather than a number.
<label_name>
<label_pattern>
string of up to 6 alphanumeric characters

SWAVeform Subsystem
Introduction
The commands in the State Waveform subsystem allow you to
configure the display so that you can view state data as waveforms. Up
to 96 channels, identified by label name and bit number, can be
displayed at a time. The 12 commands in this subsystem are
analogous to their counterparts in the Timing Waveform subsystem.
In this subsystem the X axis is restricted to representing only samples
(states), regardless of whether time tagging is on or off. As a result,
the only commands which can be used for scaling are DELay and
RANge.
The way to manipulate the X and O markers on the Waveform display
is through the State Listing (SLISt) subsystem. Using the marker
commands from the SLISt subsystem will affect the markers on the
Waveform display.
The commands in the SWAVeform subsystem are:
•
•

•
•

•
•

SCHart Subsystem
Introduction
The State Chart subsystem provides the commands necessary for
programming the HP 16554A/HP 16555A/HP 16555D’s Chart display.
The commands allow you to build charts of label activity, using data
normally found in the Listing display. The chart’s Y axis is used to
show data values for the label of your choice. The X axis can be used
in two different ways. In one, the X axis represents states (shown as
rows in the State Listing display). In the other, the X axis represents
the data values for another label.
When states are plotted along the X axis, X and O markers are
available. Because the State Chart display is simply an alternative way
of looking at the data in the State Listing, the X and O markers are
manipulated through the SLISt subsystem. Because the programming
commands do not force the menus to switch, you can position the
markers in the SLISt subsystem and see the effects in the State Chart
display.
The commands in the SCHart subsystem are:
•
•
•
•
ACCumulate
CENTer
HAXis

COMPare
Selector
:MACHine{1|2}:COMPare
The COMPare selector is used as part of a compound header to access the
settings found in the Compare menu. It always follows the MACHine selector
because it selects a branch directly below the MACHine level in the command
tree.
Example
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE1:COMPARE:FIND? 819"

CLEar
CLEar
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:COMPare:CLEar
The CLEar command clears all "don’t cares" in the reference listing and
replaces them with zeros except when the CLEar command immediately
follows the SET command (see SET command).
Example
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE2:COMPARE:CLEAR
CMASk
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:COMPare:CMASk <label_name>,
<care__spec>
The CMASk (Compare Mask) command allows you to set the bits in the
channel mask for a given label in the compare listing image to "compares" or
"don’t compares."
The CMASk query returns the state of the bits in the channel mask for a
given label in the compare listing image.
<label_name>

Example
a string of up to 6 alphanumeric characters
string of characters "{*|.}..." (32 characters maximum)

COMPare Subsystem
COPY
COPY
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:COMPare:COPY
The COPY command copies the current acquired State Listing for the
specified machine into the Compare Listing template. This makes the current
acquisition the reference listing. It does not affect the compare range or
channel mask settings.
Example
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE2:COMPARE:COPY"
DATA
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:COMPare:DATA
{<label_name>,<line_num>,<data_pattern>|
<line_num>,<data_pattern>[, <data_pattern>]... }
The DATA command allows you to edit the compare listing image for a given
label and state row. When DATA is sent to an instrument where no compare
image is defined (such as at power-up) all other data in the image is set to
don’t cares.
Not specifying the <label_name> parameter allows you to write data
patterns to more than one label for the given line number. The first pattern
is placed in the leftmost label, with the following patterns being placed in a
left-to-right fashion as seen on the Compare display. Specifying more
patterns than there are labels simply results in the extra patterns being
ignored.
Because don’t cares (Xs) are allowed in the data pattern, it must always be
expressed as a string. You may still use different bases, but don’t cares
cannot be used in a decimal number.

FIND
FIND
Query
:MACHine{1|2}:COMPare:FIND? <diff_occurrence>
The FIND query is used to get the line number of a specified difference
occurrence (first, second, third, etc.) within the current compare range, as
dictated by the RANGe command. A difference is counted for each line
where at least one of the current labels has a discrepancy between its
acquired state data listing (difference listing) and its compare data image
(reference listing).
Invoking the FIND query updates both the Listing and Compare displays so
that the line number returned is in the center of the screen.
If <diff_occurrence> is greater than the number of differences, the query
returns the last difference and the associated line number.
Returned Format

RUNTil
RUNTil
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:COMPare:RUNTil {OFF | LT,<value> |
GT,<value> | INRange,<value>,<value> |
OUTRange,<value>,<value> | EQUal | NEQual}
The RUNTil (run until) command allows you to define a stop condition when
the trace mode is repetitive. Specifying OFF causes the analyzer to make
runs until either the display’s STOP field is touched or the STOP command is
issued.
There are four conditions based on the time between the X and O markers.
Using this difference in the condition is effective only when time tags have
been turned on (see the TAG command in the STRigger subsystem). These
four conditions are as follows:
•
•
•
•
The difference is less than (LT) some value.
The difference is greater than (GT) some value.
The difference is inside some range (INRange).
The difference is outside some range (OUTRange).
End points for the INRange and OUTRange should be at least 8 ns apart since
this is the minimum time resolution of the time tag counter.
There are two conditions which are based on a comparison of the acquired
state data and the reference listing. You can run until one of the following
conditions is true:
• Every channel of every label has the same value (EQUal).
• Any channel of any label has a different value (NEQual).

SET
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:COMPare:SET
The SET command sets every state in the reference listing to "don’t cares." If
you send the SET command by mistake you can immediately send the CLEar
command to restore the previous data. This is the only time the CLEar
command will not replace "don’t cares" with zeros.

LABel
LABel
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:TFORmat:LABel <name>[,<polarity>,
<clock_bits>,[<clock_bits>,]<upper_bits>,
<lower_bits>[,<upper_bits>,<lower_bits>]...]
The LABel command allows you to specify polarity and to assign channels to
new or existing labels. If the specified label name does not match an existing
label name, a new label will be created.
The order of the pod-specification parameters is significant. The first one
listed will match the highest numbered pod assigned to the machine you’re
using. Each pod specification after that is assigned to the next highest
numbered pod. This way they match the left-to-right descending order of the
pods you see on the Format display. Not including enough pod specifications
results in the lowest numbered pods being assigned a value of zero (all
channels excluded). If you include more pod specifications than there are
pods for that machine, the extra ones will be ignored. However, an error is
reported any time more than 22 pod specifications are listed.
The polarity can be specified at any point after the label name.
Because pods contain 16 channels, the format value for a pod must be
between 0 and 65535 (216−1). When giving the pod assignment in binary,
each bit will correspond to a single channel. A "1" in a bit position means the
associated channel in that pod is assigned to the label. A "0" in a bit position
means the associated channel in that pod is excluded from the label. Leading
zeroes may be omitted. For example, assigning #B1111001100 is equivalent
to entering "......****..**.." through the touchscreen.
A label can not have a total of more than 32 channels assigned to it.

TTRigger (TTRace)
Qualifier Rules
The following rules apply to qualifiers:
• Qualifiers are quoted strings and, therefore, need quotes.
• Expressions are evaluated from left to right.
• Parentheses are used to change the order evaluation and, therefore, are
optional.
• An expression must map into the combination logic presented in the
combination pop-up menu within the TTRigger menu.
Examples
’A’
’( A OR B )’
’(( A OR B ) AND
’(( A OR B ) AND
’(( A OR B ) AND
’IN_RANGE1 AND (
C
C
(
A
)’
AND IN_RANGE2 )’
C AND IN_RANGE1 ))’
OR B ) AND C’
TTRigger (TTRace)
Selector
:MACHine{1|2}:TTRigger
The TTRigger (TTRace) (Timing Trigger) selector is used as a part of a
compound header to access the settings found in the Timing Trigger menu.
It always follows the MACHine selector because it selects a branch directly
below the MACHine level in the command tree.
Example
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE1:TTRIGGER:TAG TIME"

ACQuisition
ACQuisition
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:TTRigger:ACQuisition
{AUTOmatic|MANual}
The ACQuisition command allows you to specify the acquisition mode for the
timing analyzer.
Example
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE1:TTRIGGER:ACQUISITION AUTOMATIC"
Query
:MACHine{1|2}:TTRigger:ACQuisition?
The ACQuisition query returns the current acquisition mode specified.
Returned Format

Example
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE1:TTRIGGER:ACQUISITION?"
BRANch
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:TTRigger:BRANch<N>
<branch_qualifier>,<to_level_number>
The BRANch command defines the branch qualifier for a given sequence
level. When this branch qualifier is matched, it will cause the sequencer
to jump to the specified sequence level. BRANch functions like the "else on"
branch of the front-panel sequence level.
The terms used by the branch qualifier (A through G and I) are defined by
the TERM command. The meaning of IN_RANGE and OUT_RANGE is
determined by the RANGe command. The edge terms are defined by the
EDGE command.

TTRigger (TTRace) Subsystem
BRANch
Within the limitations shown by the syntax definitions, complex expressions
may be formed using the AND and OR operators. Expressions are limited to
what you could manually enter through the Timing Trigger menu. Regarding
parentheses, the syntax definitions on the next page show only the required
ones. Additional parentheses are allowed as long as the meaning of the
expression is not changed. Figure 12-2, on page 12-11, shows a complex
expression as seen in the Timing Trigger menu.
Example
The following statements are all correct and have the same meaning. Notice
that the conventional rules for precedence are not followed. The expressions
are evaluated from left to right.

CLEar
Terms A through E, RANGE 1, EDGE1, and TIMER 1 must be grouped together
and terms F, G, and I, RANGE 2, EDGE2, and TIMER 2 must be grouped together.
In the first level, terms from one group may not be mixed with terms from the
other. For example, the expression ((A OR IN_RANGE2) AND (C OR G))
is not allowed because the term C cannot be specified in the F, G, and I group.
In the first level, the operators you can use are AND, NAND, OR, NOR,
XOR, NXOR. Either AND or OR may be used at the second level to join the
two groups together. It is acceptable for a group to consist of a single term.
Thus, an expression like (B AND G) is legal since the two operands are both
simple terms from separate groups.
CLEar
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:TTRigger:CLEar
{All|SEQuence|RESource}
The CLEar command allows you to clear all settings in the Timing Trigger
menu, clear only the sequence levels, or clear only the resource term
patterns. Cleared values are set to their defaults.
Example
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE1:TTRIGGER:CLEAR RESOURCE"

EDGE
EDGE
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:TTRigger:EDGE<N> <label_name>,
<edge_spec>
The EDGE command allows you to define edge specifications for a given
label. Edge specifications can be R (rising), F (falling), E (either), or "."
(don’t care). Edges are sent in the same string with the rightmost string
character specifying what the rightmost bit will be.
The <edge_spec> string length must match the exact number of bits assigned
to the specified label. If the string length does not match the number of bits, the
"Parameter string invalid" message is displayed.
<N>
<label_name>
<edge_spec>
Example
{1|2}

FIND
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:TTRigger:FIND<N> <time_qualifier>,
<condition_mode>
The FIND command defines the qualifier for a given sequence level. The
qualifier tells the timing analyzer when to proceed to the next sequence level.
When this proceed qualifier is matched for either the specified time or
occurrence, the sequencer will proceed to the next sequence level. In the
sequence level where the trigger is specified, the FIND command specifies
the trigger qualifier (see SEQuence command).
The terms A through G and I are defined by the TERM command. The
meaning of IN_RANGE and OUT_RANGE is determined by the RANGe
command. The edge terms are defined by the EDGE command. Expressions
are limited to what you could manually enter through the Timing Trigger
menu. Regarding parentheses, the syntax definitions below show only the
required ones. Additional parentheses are allowed as long as the meaning of
the expression is not changed. See figure 12-2 on page 12-11 for a detailed

RANGe
RANGe
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:TTRigger:RANGe<N> <label_name>,
<start_pattern>,<stop_pattern>
The RANGe command allows you to specify a range recognizer term for the
specified machine. Since a range can only be defined across one label and,
since a label must contain 32 or fewer bits, the value of the start pattern or
stop pattern will be between 232−1 and 0.
When these values are expressed in binary, they represent the bit values for
the label at one of the range recognizers’ end points. Don’t cares are not
allowed in the end point pattern specifications.

SEQuence
SEQuence
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:TTRigger:SEQuence <number_of_levels>
The SEQuence command defines the timing analyzer trigger sequence. First
it deletes the current sequence, then it inserts the number of levels specified,
with default settings. The number of levels can be between 1 and 10 when
the analyzer is armed by the RUN key.
In timing analyzers, the trigger is always the last level.

TERM
TERM
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:TTRigger:TERM <term_id>,
<label_name>,<pattern>
The TERM command allows you to a specify a pattern recognizer term in the
specified machine. Each command deals with only one label in the given
term; therefore, a complete specification could require several commands.
Since a label can contain 32 or fewer bits, the range of the pattern value will
be between 232 − 1 and 0. When the value of a pattern is expressed in binary,
it represents the bit values for the label inside the pattern recognizer term.
Since the pattern parameter may contain don’t cares and be represented in
several bases, it is handled as a string of characters rather than a number.
Eight of the 10 terms (A through G and I) are available (terms H and J are
not available) to either machine but not both simultaneously. If you send the
TERM command to a machine with a term that has not been assigned to that
machine, an error message "Legal command but settings conflict" is returned.

INSert
INSert
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:TWAVeform:INSert [<module_spec>,]
<label_name>[,{<bit_id>|OVERlay|ALL}]
The INSert command inserts waveforms in the timing waveform display. The
waveforms are added from top to bottom up to 96 waveforms. Once 96
waveforms are present, each time you insert another waveform, it replaces
the last waveform.
Time-correlated waveforms from an oscilloscope or another logic analyzer
module can also be inserted in the logic analyzer’s timing waveforms display.
Oscilloscope waveforms occupy the same display space as three logic
analyzer waveforms. When inserting waveforms from an oscilloscope or
another logic analyzer module, the optional module specifier must be used.
1 through 10 corresponds to modules A through J. If you do not specify the
module, the selected module is assumed.
The second parameter specifies the label name that will be inserted. The
optional third parameter specifies the label bit number, overlay, or all. If a
number is specified, only the waveform for that bit number is added to the
screen.
If you specify OVERlay, all the bits of the label are displayed as a composite
overlaid waveform. If you specify ALL, all the bits are displayed sequentially.
If you do not specify the third parameter, ALL is assumed.

OPATtern
OPATtern
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:TWAVeform:OPATtern <label_name>,
<label_pattern>
The OPATtern command allows you to construct a pattern recognizer term
for the O marker which is then used with the OSEarch criteria and
OCONdition when moving the marker on patterns. Since this command deals
with only one label at a time, a complete specification could require several
invocations.
When the value of a pattern is expressed in binary, it represents the bit
values for the label inside the pattern recognizer term. In whatever base is
used, the value must be between 0 and 232 − 1, since a label may not have
more than 32 bits. Because the <label_pattern> parameter may contain
don’t cares, it is handled as a string of characters rather than a number.
<label_name>
<label_pattern>
string of up to 6 alphanumeric characters
"{#B{0|1|X} . . . |

OSEarch
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:TWAVeform:OSEarch <occurrence>,
<origin>
The OSEarch command defines the search criteria for the O marker which is
then used with the associated OPATtern specification and the OCONdition
when moving markers on patterns. The origin parameter tells the marker to
begin a search from the start of the acquisition, the trigger, or the X marker.
The actual occurrence the marker searches for is determined by the
occurrence parameter of the OSEArch specification, relative to the origin.
An occurrence of 0 places a marker on the selected origin. With a negative
occurrence, the marker searches before the origin. With a positive
occurrence, the marker searches after the origin.
<origin>

TLISt
Selector
:MACHine{1|2}:TLISt
The TLISt selector is used as part of a compound header to access those
settings normally found in the Timing Listing menu. It always follows the
MACHine selector because it selects a branch directly below the MACHine
level in the command tree.
Example
OUTPUT XXX;":MACHINE1:TLIST:LINE 256"
COLumn
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:TLISt:COLumn <col_num>
[,<module_num>,MACHine{1|2}],<label_name>,<base>
The COLumn command configures the timing analyzer listing by assigning a
label name and base to one of the 61 vertical columns in the menu. A column
number of 1 refers to the leftmost column. When a label is assigned to a
column it replaces the original label in that column.
To insert time values, use the label name "TAGS". When the label name is
"TAGS," the next parameter must specify RELative or ABSolute.
A label for tags must be assigned in order to use ABSolute or RELative time
tagging.
<col_num>
integer from 1 to 61
<module_num>
{1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10}
<label_name>

OPATtern
OPATtern
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:TLISt:OPATtern <label_name>,
<label_pattern>
The OPATtern command allows you to construct a pattern for the O marker
which is then used with the OSEarch criteria when moving the marker on
patterns. Since this command deals with only one label at a time, a complete
specification could require several iterations.
When the value of a pattern is expressed in binary, it represents the bit
values for the label inside the pattern recognizer term. In whatever base is
used, the value must be between 0 and 232 − 1, since a label may not have
more than 32 bits. Because the <label_pattern> parameter may contain
don’t cares, it is handled as a string of characters rather than a number.
<label_name>
<label_pattern>
string of up to 6 alphanumeric characters
"{#B{0|1|X} . . . |
#Q{0|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|X} . . . |

OSEarch
OSEarch
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:TLISt:OSEarch <occurrence>,<origin>
The OSEarch command defines the search criteria for the O marker, which is
then used with associated OPATtern recognizer specification when moving
the markers on patterns. The origin parameter tells the marker to begin a
search from the trigger, the start of data, or the X marker. The actual
occurrence the marker searches for is determined by the occurrence
parameter, relative to the origin. An occurrence of 0 places the marker on
the selected origin. With a negative occurrence, the marker searches before
the origin. With a positive occurrence, the marker searches after the origin.
<occurrence>
<origin>
integer from –1040384 to +1040384 (HP 16554A) or from –2088960 to

RUNTil
RUNTil
Command
:MACHine{1|2}:TLISt:RUNTil <run_until_spec>
The RUNTil (run until) command allows you to define a stop condition when
the run mode is repetitive. Specifying OFF causes the analyzer to make runs
until either the display’s STOP field is touched or the STOP command is
issued.
There are four conditions based on the time between the X and O markers.
These four conditions are as follows:
•
•
•
•
The difference is less than (LT) some value.
The difference is greater than (GT) some value.
The difference is inside some range (INRange).
The difference is outside some range (OUTRange).
End points for INRange and OUTRange should be at least 2 ns apart since
this is the minimum time between samples.

DATA and SETup Commands
Introduction
The DATA and SETup commands are SYSTem commands that allow
you to send and receive block data between the HP 16554A,
HP 16555A, or HP 16555D and a controller. Use the DATA instruction
to transfer acquired timing and state data, and the SETup instruction
to transfer instrument configuration data. This is useful for:
• Re-loading to the logic analyzer
• Processing data later
• Processing data in the controller
This chapter explains how to use these commands.
The format and length of block data depends on the instruction being
used, the configuration of the instrument, and the amount of acquired
data. The length of the data block can be as big as 20 Mbytes
(HP 16554A), 40 Mbytes (HP 16555A), or 80 Mbytes (HP 16555D) in
a three-card configuration.
The SYSTem:DATA section describes each part of the block data as it
appears when used by the DATA instruction when DBLock is set to
UNPacked. The beginning byte number, the length in bytes, and a
short description is given for each part of the block data. This is
intended to be used primarily for processing of data in the controller.
This description is for data downloaded in UNPacked format. Data sent to a
controller with the DBLock mode set to PACKed can be reloaded into the
analyzer. It is highly configuration dependent, and so is not documented for
post-processing. Data sent to a controller with the DBLock mode set to
UNPacked cannot be reloaded into the analyzer.

Data Format
To understand the format of the data within the block data, there are four
important things to keep in mind.
•
•
•
•
Example
Data is sent to the controller in binary form.
Each byte, as described in this chapter, contains 8 bits.
The first bit of each byte is the MSB (most significant bit).
Byte descriptions are printed in binary, decimal, or ASCII depending on
how the data is described.
The first ten bytes that describe the section name contain a total of 80 bits as
follows:
Byte 1
Byte 10
Binary
0100 0100 0100 0001 0101 0100 0100 0001 0010 0000...0010 0000

DATA and SETup Commands
SYSTem:DATA
SYSTem:DATA
Command
:SYSTem:DATA <block data>
The SYSTem:DATA command transmits the acquisition memory data from
the controller to the HP 16554A/HP 16555A/HP 16555D logic analyzers.
The block data consists of a variable number of bytes containing information
captured by the acquisition chips. Since no parameter checking is
performed, out-of-range values could cause instrument lockup; therefore,
care should be taken when transferring the data string into the HP 16554A/
HP 16555A/HP 16555D.
The <block data> parameter can be broken down into a <block length
specifier> and a variable number of <section>s.
The <block length specifier> always takes the form #8DDDDDDDD. Each
D represents a digit (ASCII characters "0" through "9"). The value of the eight
digits represents the total length of the block (all sections). For example, if
the total length of the block is 14522 bytes, the block length specifier would
be "#800014522".
Each <section> consists of a <section header> and <section data>.
The <section data> format varies for each section and may be any length.
For the DATA instruction, there is only one <section>, which is composed
of a data preamble followed by the acquisition data. This section has a
variable number of bytes depending on configuration and amount of acquired
data.
Example
OUTPUT XXX;":SYSTEM:DATA" <block data>
Do not load UNPacked data into the instrument; it may cause the HP 16500 to
lock up. If this happens, cycle power. Only data saved in PACKed mode can be
reloaded back into a logic analyzer.

format depends on the type of data
The total length of a section is 16 (for the section header) plus the length of the
section data. So when calculating the value for <length>, don’t forget to
include the length of the section headers.
Query
:SYSTem:DATA?
The SYSTem:DATA query sends block data to the controller. The data sent
by the SYSTem:DATA query reflect the configuration of the machines when
the last run was performed. Any changes made since then through either
front-panel operations or programming commands do not affect the stored
configuration. The format of the block data depends on the current setting of
the DBLock parameter.
Returned Format
[:SYSTem:DATA] <block data><NL>

DATA and SETup Commands
Section Header Description
Section Header Description
Because block data may contain multiple sections, this description numbers
bytes beginning at the section header. The initial 10 bytes of the block length
specifier and any other sections are not included in the numbering.
The section header uses bytes 1 through 16 (this manual begins counting at
1; there is no byte 0). The 16 bytes of the section header are as follows:
Byte Position
1
10 bytes - Section name ("DATA space space space space space
space" in ASCII for the DATA instruction).
11
1 byte - Reserved
12
1 byte - Module ID (34 decimal for the HP 16554A and HP 16555A/D master
boards, and 35 for expander boards)
13
4 bytes - Length of block in bytes that when converted to decimal, specifies
the number of bytes contained in the data block.
Section Data
For the SYSTem:DATA query when DBLock mode is UNPacked, the
<section data> parameter consists of two parts: the data preamble and the
acquisition data. These are described in the following two sections.
When DBLock mode is set to PACKed, the format is highly configuration
dependent. Because of the complexity and because it may be changed
without notice, it is not described here.
Use UNPacked format for data you wish to post-process, and PACKed data
for measurements you may want to load back into the analyzer module later.
17–6
DATA and SETup Commands
Data Preamble Description
Data Preamble Description
The UNPacked block data is organized as 574 bytes of preamble information,
followed by a variable number of bytes of data. The preamble gives
information for each analyzer describing the amount and type of data
captured, where the trace point occurred in the data, which pods are
assigned to which analyzer, and other information.
The preamble (bytes 17 through 590) consists of the following 574 bytes:
Byte Position
17
4 bytes - Instrument ID (always 16500 decimal for both the HP 16554A and
HP 16555A)
21
4 bytes - Revision Code
25
4 bytes - number of acquisition chips used in last acquisition
29
4 bytes - Analyzer ID (0 for HP 16554A, 1 for the HP 16555A/D)
The values stored in the preamble represent the captured data currently
stored in this structure and not the current analyzer configuration. For
example, the mode of the data (bytes 33 and 103) may be STATE with
tagging, while the current setup of the analyzer is TIMING.
The next 70 bytes are for Analyzer 1 Data Information.
33
4 bytes - Machine data mode, one of the following decimal values:
−1 = off
0 = 70 MHz (HP 16554A) or 100 MHz (HP 16555A/D) State data, no tags
1 = 70 MHz (HP 16554A) or 100 MHz (HP 16555A/D) State data with tags
2 = 70 MHz (HP 16554A) or 100 MHz (HP 16555A/D) State data with tags
3 = Fast State data, no tags (HP 16555A/D)
4 = Fast State data with tags (HP 16555A/D)
5 = Fast State data with tags (HP 16555A/D)
10 = conventional timing data on all channels
13 = conventional timing data on half channels
State data includes data acquired by State Compare and SPA machine types.
There is no change in the data format.

DATA and SETup Commands
Acquisition Data Description
Acquisition Data Description
The acquisition data section consists of a variable number of bytes depending
on the number of cards in the configuration, the acquisition mode, and the
state tag setting. The data is grouped in rows of bytes with one sample from
each pod in a single row. The width of the row is based on the number of
cards in the system. Each card has four pods with two bytes of data per pod.
The clock pod data (four bytes) is always first in the data row. The first two
bytes of the clock pod data are unused. The total number of bytes in a data
row for the various card count configurations is:
Cards
1
2
3
Clock Pod Bytes
4 bytes
4 bytes
4 bytes
Data Bytes
8 bytes
16 bytes
24 bytes
Total Bytes Per Row
12 bytes
20 bytes
28 bytes
The sequence of pod data within a row is the same as shown above for the
number of valid rows per pod. The number of valid rows per pod can be
determined by examining bytes 253 through 256 for pod pair 3/4 of the
master card and bytes 257 through 260 for pod pair 1/2 of the master card.
The number of valid rows for other pod pairs is contained in bytes 213
through 252.
A one-card configuration has the following data arrangement (per row):
<clk pod 1> <pod 4> <pod 3> <pod 2> <pod 1>
A two-card configuration has the following data arrangement (per row):
<-----expansion card ------><-------master card-------->
<clk 1><pod 4><pod 3><pod 2><pod 1><pod 4><pod 3><pod 2><pod 1>
A three-card configuration has the following data arrangement per row:
<- high expander -><-lower expander -><---master card--->
<clk 1><pod 4>. . .<pod 1><pod 4>. . .<pod 1><pod 4>. . .<pod 1>
If the data block is unloaded without first using the DBLock command to specify
UNPacked data, this data block description does not apply.
Unused pods always have data, however it is invalid and should be ignored.
17–11
DATA and SETup Commands
Acquisition Data Description
The depth of the data array is equal to the pod with the greatest number of
rows of valid data. If a pod has fewer rows of valid data than the data array,
unused rows will contain invalid data that should be ignored.
The clock pod contains data mapped according to the clock designator and
the board (see below). Unused clock lines should be ignored.
Clock Pod 1
exp2 exp1 mstr
< xxxx MLKJ MLKJ MLKJ >
Where x = not used, mstr = master card, exp# = expander card number.

DATA and SETup Commands
Time Tag Data Description
Example
A three-card configuration with 516096 valid rows
First data byte = byte 591
Last data byte = 14,451,278 [591 + (28 × 516096) - 1]
Time Tag Data Description
If tags are enabled for one or both analyzers, the tag data follows the
acquisition data. The first byte of the tag data is determined as follows:
591 + (bytes per row × maximum number of valid rows)
Each row of the tag data array consists of one (single analyzer with state
tags) or two (both analyzers with state tags) eight-byte tag values per row.
When both analyzers have state tags enabled, the first tag value in a row
belongs to Machine 1 and the second tag value belongs to Machine 2.
If the tag value is a time tag, the number is an integer representing time in
picoseconds. If the tag value is a state tag, the number is an integer state
count.
The total size of the tag array is 8 or 16 bytes per row times the greatest
number of valid rows.
SYSTem:SETup
Command
:SYStem:SETup <block data>
The SYStem:SETup command configures the logic analyzer module as
defined by the block data sent by the controller. It is not affected by DBLock.
There are three data sections which are always returned. The strings which
are included in the section header are:
"CONFIG
"
"DISPLAY1 "
"BIG_ATTRIB"
17–13
DATA and SETup Commands

1 byte reserved
1 byte for the module ID code (34 for the HP 16554A and HP 16555A/D
logic analyzer)
4 bytes for the length of the section data in bytes
<section data>
format depends on the type of data. The total length of a section is 16 (for
the section header) plus the length of the section data. So when calculating
the value for <length>, don’t forget to include the length of the section
headers. The format of the setup block is not affected by the DBLock
command setting.
Example
OUTPUT XXX;"SETUP" <block data>

Making a State Analyzer Measurement
Making a State Analyzer Measurement
This state analyzer program selects the HP 16554A/HP 16555A/HP 16555D
module, displays the configuration menu, defines a state machine, displays
the state trigger menu, sets a state trigger for multilevel triggering. This
program then starts a single acquisition measurement while checking for
measurement completion.
This program is written so that you can run it with the HP E2433-60004 Logic
Analyzer Training Board. This example is the same as the "Multilevel State
Triggering" example in chapter 9 of the HP E2433 Logic Analyzer Training
Kit.

Making a State Compare Analyzer Measurement
This program example acquires a state listing, copies the listing to the
compare listing, acquires another state listing, and compares both listings to
find differences.
This program is written so that you can run it with the HP E2433-60004 Logic
Analyzer Training Board. This example is the same as the "State Compare"
example in chapter 3 of the HP E2433 Logic Analyzer Training Kit.

Transferring the Logic Analyzer Configuration
Transferring the Logic Analyzer Configuration
This program uses the SYSTem:SETup query to transfer the configuration of
the logic analyzer to your controller. This program also uses the
SYSTem:SETup command to transfer a logic analyzer configuration from the
controller back to the logic analyzer. The configuration data will set up the
logic analyzer according to the data. It is useful for getting configurations for
setting up the logic analyzer by the controller. The SYSTem:SETup
command differs from the SYSTem:DATA command because it only transfers
the configuration and not acquired data.

Checking for Measurement Completion
Checking for Measurement Completion
This program can be appended to or inserted into another program when you
need to know when a measurement is complete. If it is at the end of a
program it will tell you when measurement is complete. If you insert it into a
program, it will halt the program until the current measurement is complete.
In this example, the module installed in slot B is being checked for
measurement complete.
This program is also in the state analyzer example program in "Making a State
Analyzer Measurement" on page 18-5. It is included in the state analyzer
example program to show how it can be used in a program to halt the
program until measurement is complete.

Sending Queries to the Logic Analyzer
Sending Queries to the Logic Analyzer
This program example contains the steps required to send a query to the
logic analyzer. Sending the query alone only puts the requested information
in an output buffer of the logic analyzer. You must follow the query with an
ENTER statement to transfer the query response to the controller. When the
query response is sent to the logic analyzer, the query is properly terminated
in the logic analyzer. If you send the query but fail to send an ENTER
statement, the logic analyzer will display the error message "Query
Interrupted" when it receives the next command from the controller, and the
query response is lost.

Document Warranty
The information contained in
this document is subject to
change without notice.
Hewlett-Packard makes
no warranty of any kind
with regard to this
material, including, but
not limited to, the implied
warranties of
merchantability or fitness
for a particular purpose.
Hewlett-Packard shall not be
liable for errors contained
herein or for damages in
connection with the
furnishing, performance, or
use of this material.
Safety
This apparatus has been
designed and tested in
accordance with IEC
Publication 348, Safety
Requirements for Measuring
Apparatus, and has been
supplied in a safe condition.
This is a Safety Class I
instrument (provided with
terminal for protective
earthing). Before applying
power, verify that the correct
safety precautions are taken
(see the following warnings).
In addition, note the external
markings on the instrument
that are described under
"Safety Symbols."
Warning
• Before turning on the
instrument, you must connect
the protective earth terminal
of the instrument 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. You must not
negate the protective action
by using an extension cord
(power cable) without a
protective conductor
(grounding). Grounding one
conductor of a two-conductor
outlet is not sufficient
protection.
• 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
of fire hazard.

• Service instructions are for
trained service personnel. To
avoid dangerous electric
shock, do not perform any
service unless qualified to do
so. Do not attempt internal
service or adjustment unless
another person, capable of
rendering first aid and
resuscitation, is present.
• If you energize this
instrument by an auto
transformer (for voltage
reduction), make sure the
common terminal is
connected to the earth
terminal of the power source.
Safety Symbols
Instruction manual symbol:
the product is marked with
this symbol when it is
necessary for you to refer to
the instruction manual in
order to protect against
damage to the product.
Hazardous voltage symbol.
• Whenever it is likely that
the ground protection is
impaired, you must make the
instrument inoperative and
secure it against any
unintended operation.
• 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.
• Do not install substitute
parts or perform any
unauthorized modification to
the instrument.
• Capacitors inside the
instrument may retain a
charge even if the instrument
is disconnected from its
source of supply.
• Use caution when exposing
or handling the CRT.
Handling or replacing the
CRT shall be done only by
qualified maintenance
personnel.
Earth terminal symbol: Used
to indicate a circuit common
connected to grounded
chassis.
