VX4287
Appendix F: Performance Verification
Self Test
The VX4287 includes a built-in self test function (BITE) which runs automatically each time the power is turned on and when the internal self-test (IST) is
executed.
BITE uses internal routines and reference circuitry which verifies all input
thresholds to within 5% of their required accuracy. It also verifies the integrity of
on–board RAM, NVRAM, processor, and custom gate arrays.
In addition to BITE, the front panel indicator lights display the current status of
module power, self test results, and the assertion of SYSFAIL*. If the module
loses any of its power voltages, the Failed light will be on, the Power light will
be off, and SYSFAIL* will be asserted. Following a successful VXIbus system
startup sequence, the green PWR light on the VX4287 front panel indicates that
the self test has passed and that all power supplies are operational.
NOTE. If you experience an error indication from the VX4287-under-test, or any
other VXIbus module, investigate and correct the problem before proceeding.
Common items to check are logical address conflicts (primary and secondary;
see Table 1–3), breaks in the VXIbus daisy chain signals, improper seating of a
module, loose GPIB cable, or loose or blown fuses.
Performance Verification Tests
The tests in this procedure may be performed in any order. Although the
sequences are structured for a system configuration as described in Table 1–3,
you may use any VXI system which meets the requirements specified in
Table 1–2. If your VXIbus system uses a different Resource Manager, you must
substitute commands specific to that Resource Manager-Controller to achieve the
equivalent results of each section.
NOTE. If at any time you do not observe the expected result, check the front panel
ERROR light. If it is on, perform Err? queries until you receive a response of
“00, NO ADDITIONAL ERRORS TO REPORT..”. The ERROR light should then
be off. To quickly clear all errors, send the reset (rst) command.

Requirements
Digital Oscilloscope (item 1)

Coaxial Cable, two (item 6)
BNC T Adapter (item 7)
BNC female to Clip Lead Adapter, two (item 8)
BNC to Probe Tip Adapter (item 9)
Prerequisites
All prerequisites listed on page A–22
1. Attach the DD50S interconnect Adapter to the VX4287 P4 connector.
2. Attach a BNC-T connector to the function generator Output. Attach one end
of a coaxial cable to one side of the BNC-T and attach a BNC to Clip Lead
adapter to the opposite end. Connect the red Clip Lead to the 0-to-7
positive (+) inputs of the VX4287 and the black Clip Lead to 0-to-7
negative (–) inputs (see Figure 5).
3. Using a second coaxial cable and a BNC to Clip Lead adapter, connect the
other side of the BNC-T to the VX4287 STB/ARM input. Connect the red
Clip Lead to the STB/ARM input and the black Clip Lead to one of the
GND pins on the P6 connector.
4. Set the function generator for a square wave with a frequency of 185 kHz, an
amplitude of 2.0 Vpp, and an offset of +1.0 V. Select Burst mode and set the
number of bursts to one. Enable the output.
5. Connect the channel 1 probe of the oscilloscope to the VX4287 0-to-7
+ inputs. Connect channel 2 to the EQU OUT signal (P6, pin-F). Attach the
probe ground clips to pin 42 (GND) of the DD50S interconnect Adapter.
Setup the oscilloscope as follow:
a. Position the channel 1 zero reference trace to the center horizontal
graticule and the channel 2 trace to the first horizontal graticule above
the bottom of the display.
b. Set both channel 1 and channel 2 to 1.00 V/division and 20 MHz
bandwidth limit.
c. Set the horizontal to 50 µs/division.
VX4287
A–31
Appendix F: Performance Verification
d. Set the trigger source to channel 1 and the trigger level to one horizontal
graticule above the center of the display (i.e. to trigger on a 1.0V signal
level from channel 1) Reset the trigger mode to Normal.
6. Using the commands below, setup the VX4287 to the power-on default state
(Analog mode, 1.4V threshold level for Inputs 0-to-31 and STB/ARM), to
close the isolation relays for the channels specified, to set a trigger equation
to capture signals on Inputs 0-to-7 (this also specifies which channels are to
be enabled for collection in the Event buffer, in this case 0-to-7, and enables
the front panel EQU OUT signal to pulse concurrent with data capture.), to
assert a VXIbus Request True interrupt on EQU true, to be armed by a
positive pulse on the front panel STB/ARM pin, and to request data from the
Event Buffer, and reenable channels.
7. Check that the front panel ARM light is not on, then perform a serial poll
with the command below and verify a response of 0x0. This response
indicates that there is no VXIbus Request True event pending.
(Observe: Poll: 0x0 (decimal:0))
8. Clear the oscilloscope display (force manual trigger button), then press the
manual trigger button on the function generator and verify that the ARM
light is now on.
9. Press the manual trigger a second time and verify that the function generator
input pulse on channel 1 of the oscilloscope is approximately 2.7 µs and the
corresponding negative EQU OUT pulse on channel 2 is approximately
2.4 µs. The EQU OUT pulse occurs about 200 µs after the function generator
input pulse.
10. Perform a serial poll with the VX4287 and verify a response of 0x41. This
response indicates that a VXIbus Request True event is pending.
(Observe Poll: 0x41 (decimal:65))
11. Perform two Event Buffer queries and observe the Time Tag and Channel
Data similar to the example below, followed by “NO ENTRIES”.

The VX4287 Module must be calibrated every twelve months for the module to
meet its published accuracy specifications. Calibrate the VX4287 Module at the
temperature at which it will be operating. Calibration to the published accuracy
specifications has been performed at Tektronix Inc. prior to shipping. Allow a ten
minute warm-up period before performing the calibration.
