qualified service personnel
Do NOT block vents and fan exhaust:
To ensure adequate cooling and ventilation, leave a gap of at least 50mm
(2") around vent holes on both sides of
the chassis.
Do NOT operate with empty slots: To
ensure proper cooling and avoid damaging equipment, fill each empty slot
with an AXIe filler panel module.
Do NOT stack free-standing chassis:
Stacked chassis should be rackmounted.
All modules are grounded through the
chassis: During installation, tighten
each module's retaining screws to
secure the module to the chassis and
to make the ground connection.
Operator is responsible to maintain
safe operating conditions. To ensure
safe operating conditions, modules
should not be operated beyond the full
temperature range specified in the
Environmental and physical specification. Exceeding safe operating conditions can result in shorter lifespan,
improper module performance and

Step 1: Unpack and Inspect the Module
Step 1: Unpack and Inspect the Module
The module is shipped in materials which prevent damage from
static. The module should only be removed from the packaging in
an anti-static area ensuring that correct anti-static precautions
are taken. Store all modules in anti-static envelopes when not in
use.
ESD
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage or destroy electronic components. All
work on electronic assemblies should be performed at a static-safe work station.
The following figure shows an example of a static-safe work station using two
types of ESD protection. Purchase acceptable ESD accessories from your local
supplier.
- Conductive table-mat and wrist-strap
combination.
- Conductive floor-mat and heel-strap
combination.
Both types, when used together, provide
a significant level of ESD protection. Of
the two, only the table-mat and
wrist-strap combination provides
adequate ESD protection when used
alone. To ensure user safety, the
static-safe accessories must provide at
least 1 M of isolation from ground.
Inspect for damage
After unpacking a module, inspect it for any shipping damage. Report any
damage to the shipping agent immediately, as such damage is not covered by
the warranty (see warranty information at beginning of this document).
To avoid damage when handling a module, do not touch exposed
connector pins.

chassis BEFORE you power up the PC. When you power down
your chassis, Shut Down the PC BEFORE you power down the
chassis.
For embedded controllers:
If you are using an embedded controller, complete the following steps:
1 Install the embedded controller module into a compatible PXIe chassis. The
Keysight M9037A PXIe Embedded Controller and Keysight M9018A PXIe
Chassis are recommended. Please refer to your embedded controller and
chassis documentation for further details.
2 Connect peripherals (mouse, keyboard, monitor).
3 Power up the chassis.

Step 3: Install the Software
Software installation procedure
1 Install the Keysight IO Libraries Suite from either the Keysight IO Libraries
Suite CD provided in your ship kit or get the latest from the web at:
www.keysight.com/find/M9195A (go to Visit Technical Support > Drivers,
Firmware & Software). Follow the installer prompts to install the IO libraries.
Keysight IO Libraries Suite is required to run the DSR driver
software, including the DSR Soft Front Panel.
2 Install the M9195A product software:
a
Using the Keysight M9195A PXIe Digital Stimulus/Response Software and
Product Information CD (M9195-10002), launch the installer.
b When the Install Wizard starts, click the Next button.
c Follow the installer prompts. Read and Accept the License Agreement.
Click Next.
d Choose a Complete installation to install all software and documentation.
Click Next.
e Click Install to begin the installation.
3 Power Down the host PC and then the chassis if using a remote controller PC.
If you are using a remote controller, power order matters:
• When powering down, first power down the PC (before the chassis)
• When restoring power, first power up the chassis (before the PC)
Keysight M9195A PXIe Digital Stimulus/Response Startup Guide
17
Step 4: Install the Module
Step 4: Install the Module
When you restore power, power up the chassis first - before you
power up the host (controller) PC.
PXI hardware does not support “hot-swap” (changing modules
while power is applied to the chassis) capabilities. Before
installing or removing a module to/from the chassis, power off the
chassis to prevent damage to the module.
Chassis requirements for temperature control
The following chassis requirements assure optimal cooling and proper operating
temperatures for the DSR module:
- Any empty module slot in the chassis should be fitted with a slot blocker (from
kit Y1212A) and EMC filler panel (from kit Y1213A).
- If a PCIe Cable Interface module is used in place of a controller, the open area
to the left of the interface module should be filled with the filler panel and
bracket (from kit Y1214A).
- All lower and side vents should remain unobstructed.
- Set the chassis fan speed to HIGH. The fan switch is on the rear panel of the
M9018A chassis.
The use of a Keysight M9018A Chassis and the above accessories will optimize
module temperature performance.
When powering-up the PXI chassis and during the first DSR driver
initialization after power-up (from the IVI API or from the M9195A
Soft Front Panel) make certain that no device–under–test (DUT) is
connected to the M9195A module.
18
Keysight M9195A PXIe Digital Stimulus/Response Startup Guide
Step 4: Install the Module
Module installation procedure
The module can be installed in any PXIe or hybrid PXI slot marked with a
peripheral slot compatibility image. Suitable slots will have a solid black circle
with a number inscribed. A PXIe slot is represented by a solid black circle (for
example,
); a hybrid PXI slot is represented by a solid black circle with the
letter H in the upper right (for example,
). For best performance, install the
module in a x8 hybrid slot; in the M9018A PXIe chassis, this is slot 2, 6, 11, or 15.
1 Make sure that the chassis line cord is plugged into an established earth
ground and that the chassis power switch is in the Off (Standby) position.
2 If the chassis has multiple fan speed settings, ensure that the fan switch is set
to AUTO.
3 Position the chassis to provide ample space between the chassis fan intake
and exhaust vents. Blockage by walls or obstructions affects the air flow
needed for cooling. (Refer to the chassis documentation for more information
about cooling).
4 If you are using an remote PC as the system controller, install the System
Interface Card in slot 1 of the chassis.
5 Before inserting the module into the chassis, back the mounting screws out to
ensure that there is no interference between the screws and the mounting
rails.
6 Holding the module by the injector/ejector handle, slide it into an available
PXI (or hybrid) slot, as shown in the figure below.
a
Install the module into the
slot of the chassis by placing
the module card edges into
the front module guides (top
and bottom).

c Slide the module completely into the chassis. When you begin to feel
resistance, pull up on the injector/ejector handle to fully inject the module
into the chassis.
7 Secure the front panel to the chassis using the two module front-panel
mounting screws. Performance may suffer if the screws are not tightened
properly.
8 Verify that the PXI chassis fans are operable and free of dust and other
contaminants that may restrict airflow.
Keysight M9195A PXIe Digital Stimulus/Response Startup Guide
19
Step 4: Install the Module
9 Install all filler panels after installing the module. Missing filler panels may
disrupt necessary air circulation and prevent proper cooling of the chassis.
10 If you are using a PCIe Cable Interface module, such as the Keysight M9021,
connect the Cable Interface in the chassis to the PC host per the instructions
that came with the Cable Interface.
11 Power up the PXI chassis.
12 Reboot the PC host.
13 Proceed to Step 5: Verify Operation of the Keysight M9195A PXIe Digital
Stimulus/Response module (“Step 5: Verify Operation of the M9195A Module”
on page 21).
20
Keysight M9195A PXIe Digital Stimulus/Response Startup Guide
Step 5: Verify Operation of the M9195A Module
Step 5: Verify Operation of the M9195A Module
In this step you will verify correct operation of the Keysight M9195A PXIe Digital
Stimulus/Response module. Before running Self Test or Automatic Corrections,
ensure that all required software is installed, the chassis is powered on, and all
front panel cabling is removed.
Check the Status LED
Check the M9195A front panel Status LED.
- When power is first applied, the LED starts in the Off state and then changes
to Green a few moments after PXI enumeration takes place.
- In general, when the Status LED is solid green, the module is working
correctly.
- Refer to the “Status LED” table on page 35 for the complete list of the LED
colors and their meaning.

Step 5: Verify Operation of the M9195A Module
Conduct a Self Test
Now the M9195A is ready to run Self Test from the Soft Front Panel.
Before you initiate the Self Test,
(a) Disconnect all cables (for accuracy and to prevent damage)
(b) Save any data that you need (waveforms, cycle instructions,
etc.), as Self Test will erase the memory in the module.
Be prepared for the Self Test to take several minutes to run.
1 To start the Self Test, click Utilities > Sel f Test... and the Run Sel f Test... button.
Follow all screen prompts.
Click Yes when all cables have been removed.

Step 6: Execute Automatic Corrections
Step 6: Execute Automatic Corrections
Before you run Automatic Corrections,
(a) Disconnect all cables (for accuracy and to prevent damage)
(b) Save any data that you need (waveforms, cycle instructions,
etc.), as Auto Corrections will erase the memory in the module.
Be prepared for Automatic Corrections to take several minutes to
complete.
Automatic Corrections is initiated from the Soft Front Panel. Automatic
Corrections executes a function that automatically calculates corrections for the
M9195A. It does not require a calibration fixture or measurement equipment. The
name of the specific function is Execute Automatic Corrections.
Before calling Automatic Corrections, all cables to external fixtures (inputs to the
M9195A) must be disconnected from the M9195A.
The Automatic Corrections Needed function returns True if the current module
temperature has deviated by more than 5oC from the temperature where
automatic corrections were last calculated. With this deviation of over 5oC, the
measurement values from the PPMU may not be within specifications.
You should Execute Automatic Corrections at these times:
– When the test system is initially set up (when you first receive and install
the M9195A in your PXIe system).
– If there has been any change to the test system environment.
– On a regular schedule as necessary; for example, you may want to perform
the Automatic Corrections daily, weekly, or monthly.
– When the module temperature has changed more than 5oC from the
temperature at which automatic corrections were last calculated.
Keysight recommends yearly calibration to guarantee
specifications and to maintain the highest level of performance.
The module calibration may be performed by the service center or
by self-maintainers with the optional Keysight Y1252A Calibration
Kit.
Refer to the M9195A Service Guide and the Soft Front Panel Help
for more detailed information.
24
Keysight M9195A PXIe Digital Stimulus/Response Startup Guide
Step 6: Execute Automatic Corrections
Automatic Corrections procedure
1 Turn on the M9195A system, and allow it to warm up for a minimum of 30
minutes.
2 Remove all cables from the front of the M9195A.
You must remove all cables from the M9195A before executing
Automatic Corrections. Failure to remove all cables will result in
inaccurate adjustment and could result in damage to the M9195A
and anything attached to the cables (such as your DUT).
3 Start the Soft Front Panel (SFP) by clicking Start > All Programs > Keysight > MDsr
> MDsr SFP.
4 The SFP will ask to connect to an instrument.
In the Connect to Instrument dialog (see Figure 1 on page 21), connect to the
M9195A module for which you want to execute Automatic Corrections.
5 Select the Instrument tab in the Soft Front Panel as in Figure 4.

a
If the Automatic Corrections Needed field contains False, Automatic
Corrections are not needed; you can skip to the end of this procedure.
b If the Automatic Corrections Needed field contains True, proceed to the next
step to execute the automatic corrections.
8 Select an Averaging Mode.
– Average64 is a good default if your system does not have power line noise.
– Use Window50Hz if you notice power line noise and your local power is 50
Hz.
– Use Window60Hz if you notice power line noise and your local power is 60
Hz.
9 Now, to run Automatic Corrections,

API Overview
IVI Drivers
Keysight's IVI drivers simplify the creation and maintenance of instrument control
applications in a variety of development environments; they allow programmatic
control of instrumentation while providing a greater degree of instrument
interchangeability and code reuse. IVI drivers currently come in two basic types:
IVI-COM and IVI-C.
Although the functionality offered by both types of drivers is very similar, the
fundamental differences in interface technology results in a very different
end-user experience. The IVI drivers support compiling application programs for
32-bit or 64-bit platforms.
Supported Application Development Environments (ADEs)
One of the most important considerations in comparing IVI-COM and IVI-C
drivers is the end user experience in various ADEs. Since IVI-COM drivers are
based on Microsoft COM technology, IVI-COM drivers typically offer the richest
user experience in Microsoft ADEs. Users working in Visual C++, Visual C#, Visual
Basic.NET, and Visual Basic 6 benefit from a host of features, such as object
browsers, IntelliSense, and context-sensitive help.
Resources
When you install the DSR software, resources are also installed for your
convenience. Below are typical locations where you will find these resources.
– IVI driver files are installed in the standard IVI Foundation directories.
Typical location: C:\Program Files\IVI Foundation\IVI\Drivers\KtMDsr
– Example programs are provided to demonstrate most driver functionality.
Typical location: C:\Program Files\IVI Foundation\IVI\Drivers\KtMDsr\Examples
Example programs are also posted online with M9195A support resources.
- Reference material for the driver functions (a Microsoft HTML Help file)
- The Help file is installed with the IVI driver; it is also available from the Soft
Front Panel (SFP) by clicking Help > Driver Help.
– The KtMDsr driver Help is integrated into Microsoft Visual Studio's
IntelliSense prompts for easy access as you code.
– You can also access the Help file directly from the Start menu: Start > All
Programs > Keysight Instrument Drivers > IVI-COM-C Drivers > KtMDsr Digital
Stimulus Response > KtMDsr Documentation.

Keysight M9195A PXIe Digital Stimulus/Response Startup Guide
A Quick-Start for Programming the DSR
Programming model
The programming model for the M9195A PXI Digital Stimulus/Response (DSR)
module is influenced by the Standard Test Interface Language (STIL, pronounced
“style”). This language defines the digital signals applied to a Device Under Test
(DUT), and describes the test pins, voltage specifications, timing specifications
and test patterns:
Block name
Defines
Signal
The Pin signals (only one definition allowed per pin)
Timing and WaveformTable
The signal timing and waveform formatting
DCLevels
The DC signal levels applied to and expected from the DUT
Pattern
Defines the Test Vectors on a fixed time-period. The data
within each vector then specifies the action on individual
pins during that fixed time period.
These individual parameter sets are linked together by other STIL format blocks
to define the complete set of parameters needed to execute a set of test vectors:
Block name
Purpose
SignalGroup
Groups together various pins such as control signals and
buss lines.
PatternBurst
Links together one or more Pattern blocks into a sequence of
patterns
PatternExec
Ties together a PatternBurst block with the appropriate DC
levels and timing sets.
In general, it is easiest to understand the basic architecture of the M9195A PXI
DSR by first understanding STIL. STIL is the basis for the software architecture.
After understanding STIL, then it is much easier to understand the IVI commands
and how the components fit together.
While it is beyond the scope of this manual to fully describe the STIL language,
having a knowledge of STIL will help you understand the module and its
features/functions and how to program it. You can also use the M9195A Soft
Front Panel (SFP) to learn to use the module. Refer to the User Guide for the
chapter on “Using STIL”.

M9195A Module Level Troubleshooting
Status LED
When power is first applied to the M9195A PXIe DSR, the LED starts in the Off
state, and then changes to green after a few moments when PXI enumeration
has taken place. In general, when the Status LED is solid green the module is
working correctly. The following table lists the states (colors) of the Status LED.
Status LED color
Description
Off
Power not applied. Or, a failure could have possibly occurred in the power
supplies or fundamental hard ware.
Green - solid
Power OK. Successful PXI enumeration. Driver not initialized.
Blue - solid
Driver initialized, without error.
The LED remains solid blue until the driver (or SFP) is closed, at which time it
will change to green.
Blue - blinking
The Instrument Identify operation has been activated from the API or the SFP
(by setting Instrument Identify to True). The LED remains blinking blue until
either Instrument Identify is set to False or driver is closed.
Red - solid
Error condition. Analog power supply shut down due to over-temperature or
excessive current draw.
If PXI enumeration fails, the module may still be functional, so try
the following:
1. Locate the module in Keysight Connection Expert or
2. Start the M9195A driver either through your own program or by
starting the Soft Front Panel.
Either method should cause the Status LED to turn blue if the
module is operational.
