Measurement Signal Flow
The signal produced by Agilent E5037C/D Data Generator Module is inputted to the head
amplifier, with a specified amount of write current, data is written to the media.
3. Chapter Title
•
When reading the data, as specified by the amount of read current, the read data is
amplified by the head amplifier and inputted into the Filter Matrix Module.
The signal received by Agilent E5038B Parametric Measurement Module, Agilent
54845A/B Oscilloscope and Agilent E5041A Dual Counter Module will be filtered out
from this module. The filtered signal received by the parametric module is calculated by
this module whose results are displayed by the PC. However, for the Spectrum
Measurement (Agilent E5040A or 4395A or E5040A+E4402B ) and Agilent E5039B/C
Bit Error Test Module, the signals received are non-filtered. The signal is simply
pre-amplified as it passes through the filter matrix module.
Chapter 1
19
5. Chapter Title
Under normal measurement operation the data generator is used to produce the signal
needed for measurement. The Agilent E5039B/C Bit Error Rate Test Module on the other
hand, writes and reads its own signal. In other words, it produces its own signal and writes
its own data. The written data passes through the filter matrix module to be filtered out
before sending it to the bit error test module. A read channel IC in the bit error test module
reads the written data and checks what fraction of the total bits of the written data are in
error. Refer to the system block diagram as shown in Figure 1-3.
4. Chapter Title
The Agilent E5036A Filter Matrix Module then filters out the signal before sending it to
each measuring instrument.The Filter Matrix Module is equipped with four filters. The
user can set any of the four filters as desired.
Overview
System Overview
Control (PC) System
The commands for each measuring instrument and spinstand all come from the PC. The
commands being sent by the PC to each module of the VXI mainframe passes through the
IEEE-1394 interface.The triggers synchronizing with the index signal are generated from
Agilent E5035B Spinstand Interface Module to all modules and instrument. The Agilent
E5037C/D Data Generator Module of the VXI mainframe sends its write data as controlled
by the Write Gate to the head amplifier from Agilent E5035B Spinstand Interface Module.
The same procedure applies for piezo, HLM and head amplifier. The command passes
through the Agilent E5035B Spinstand Interface Module.
The box type measuring instrument (Oscilloscope) is controlled by the PC through GPIB
cable. Also, the trigger to start measurement from Agilent E5035B Spinstand Interface
Module are received to start measurement.
The stages of the spinstand and spindle as controlled by the spinstand controller, this is
controlled by the PC through RS-232C.
NOTE
If your E5023A has Windows 95 operating system, you must turn off the power
management mode to avoid performance (speed) deterioration. For Windows 2000
operating system shipped with the latest version of the E5023A, you don’t need to care the
power management mode because Windows 2000 does not have such mode.
Software
The PC of Agilent E5023A uses an English version of the Windows 2000. Windows
98, Windows Me, Windows NT, Windows XP and other language version of
Windows 2000 are not supported by the system.

Agilent E5023A Measurement Library
The Agilent E5023A Measurement Library is a dynamic link library designed to facilitate
measurement programming. This creates an environment that makes the Agilent E5023A
into an integrated system rather than a rack-and-stack set of instruments, which allows the
instruments to perform at a higher level as a system.
The configuration information for head amplifiers and HGA cassettes is stored in the
directory “c:\Program Files\Agilent\e5022\config” as XML files (or “c:\Program
Files\Agilent\e5022\bin” as DLL files).
Agilent I/O Library
Agilent I/O library is a general I/O library to control the instrument. This includes Agilent
VISA library. It is not necessary to care about this library because the Agilent E5023A

measurement library controls this.
Agilent VEE
Agilent E5023A VEE is a powerful visual programming language, which allows you to
control the instrument, make quick measurements and display the system settings. This
software controls the system by calling the Agilent E5023A measurement library.
Agilent E5023A Test Environment (VEE-based graphical operating program)
2. Chapter Title
The Test Environment is a user interface, it is constructed in Agilent VEE which allows the
user to make quick measurements and display the system settings. It controls the system by
calling the measurement library from the VEE. Since the internal structure of the Test
Environment Program is open to public, one can use it as a reference for visual
programming.
Agilent E5023A Sample Program (Visual Basic)
Agilent E5023A sample programs in Visual Basic are provided to help the user make his
own program. As VEE is not suitable to explain how the program works due to its visual
programming structure, the Visual Basic is used for an application of sample program
although the Visual Basic is not installed at factory shipment. The sample program shows
you the example procedure for measurement to understand the programming.

Perform System Initialization
In this section, inspect initialization of the system.
Launch the pre-installed Agilent E5023A Measurement Software and confirm if the system
can initialize itself properly in the initialize routine of the program. This achieves by
calling initialize function at the beginning of the program.
Start the program and watch for the following events in this order.
1. Select Start - Programs - Agilent Hard Disk ReadWrite Test System - Test
Environment (RunTime Version) from the task bar of Window 2000 to launch the
program.
2. Agilent E5023A Measurement Software Main Menu will appear and start to initialize
the system. Until initialization is completed, the menu is inactive.
3. The spinstand (E5013A) starts homing to initialize itself. In homing, the stage moves to
an end of stage travel where the limit switch is turned on, then initialize the position.
The stage is fixed by the servo motor after homing. The T-plate stage starts homing
first, and the puck stage is next. (For the E5010C Spinstand, the HLM stage starts
homing first, and the spindle stage is next.)
4. After the initialization, HGA Parameter Setup dialog box will appear. Click Close.
5. The Configuration and Measure buttons become active. It takes about 60 seconds for
the program to initialize.
If the system initialization is not completed correctly, continue the trouble isolation to refer

Perform Measurement System Verification
Perform Measurement System Verification
The measurement system verification verifies the E5023A’s basic measurement functions
through the write and read signal measurements using the verification fixture. This
verification does not verify the head amplifier.
Required Equipment
The following equipment is required to perform the write portion and read portion
verification:
•
P/N E5023-65600 Verification Kit (commercial HA-type)
or P/N E5023-65601 Verification Kit (UHA-type)
•
Oscilloscope (This oscilloscope is used to perform the write portion verification.
E5023A option 103 oscilloscope can be used.)
•
Verification Kit Setup Files (Those files are provided through the internal web site of
Agilent Technologies’ Component Test Division - Kobe. Contact your nearest service
center to obtain those files.)
Table 2-6 and Table 2-7 show the contents of P/N E5023-65600 and P/N E5023-65601.
NOTE
These verification kits are designed as service tools for verifying the basic operations
(connectivity, etc.) of the Agilent E5023A Hard Disk Read/Write Test System during its
installation, trouble isolation, or repair work. Use for other purposes (such as a
measurement performance evaluation) is not supported.
You must follow the procedure descried in this manual when you use these verification kits.
Incorrect use is dangerous and may cause a system trouble or spinstand crash.
These verification kits should be used only by qualified personnel who took Agilent’s
official service training.
After completing the verification, the setup files you placed in the folders should be deleted.
You can order required verification parts individually or use required parts of your system
temporarily (if they are not used during the verification).

Perform Measurements
This section helps you to isolate a problem in the system through actual device
measurements. In brief, the Hard Disk Read/Write Test System consists of a data
generation instruments, measuring instruments and the spinstand mechanical part as shown
in Figure 2-42 and Figure 2-43 (Agilent E5023A does not include the spinstand). These
figures are useful to isolate a defective assembly in the system. For example, TAA, PW and
Baseline measured data which are measured at the E5038B are wrong in spite of the other
data such as Narrow Band TAA is good, it is assumed that the E5038B gives problem.
Especially, in case of the measurement instrument such as the E5038B, E5040A and
Oscilloscope gives problem, it is easy to isolate a defective instrument. However, if one of
the E5037C/D, E5035B, Head Amp and Spinstand gives problem, it is difficult to specify
the defective instrument. In this case, to replace the instrument except for the Spinstand in
sequence is the best method. And, when you encounter the measurement data does not
return or ‘Timeout occurred’ error message appears, it is assumed that the trigger line stops
causes this problem. In this case, to check the trigger line on the E5035B and Spinstand, or
to inspect the status LED on the VXI instrument is the best method. Refer to Appendix B,
“Measurement Paths,” on page 157 which describes the matrix with measurement paths
and measurement parameters. If you have any problems as shown in Table 2-11, “Trouble
Isolation Hints,” on page 63, it is possible to roughly isolate a defective instrument.

problem. Firstly, check and replace
the E5037C/D, Head Amp, E5035B
and E5040A in sequence. Still, if you
can not isolate a defective instrument,
refer to “Troubleshooting” chapter of
spinstand service manual.

TAA is unacceptable in
spite of the PW and
Baseline measurement
data are acceptable.
Check the SMA - SMA cable
connecting ‘Fltrd Out 3’ connector on
the E5036A and ‘Signal In’ connector
on the E5038B. If cable connection is
good, replace the E5038B. (The
E5038B consists of three separated
measurement part as TAA
measurement part, PW measurement
part and Baseline measurement part.)
PW is unacceptable in
spite of the TAA and
Baseline are acceptable.
Baseline is
unacceptable in spite of
the TAA and PW are

To Guess the Cause of Problem
Narrow Band TAA
Measurement
Check the SMA - SMA cable
connecting ‘Thru Out 1’ on the

‘Ext Ref In’ connector on the
E5040A. If the cable connections are
good, replace the E5040A.

Overview
Head amplifier is a module that enlarges signals from the hard disk head. Head amplifier
differs depending on what IC is used in the hard disk that the head is going to be installed.
This section describes a method to replace a head amplifier.
Tools
•
T10 TORX driver
Removal of Head Amplifier
Step 1. Shut whole system down.
Step 2. Disconnect cables from the head amplifier.
Step 3. Using TORX driver (T10), remove screws fixing the head amplifier. See Figure 4-4 for
locations of screws.
Figure 4-4
Onstage Buffer Unit and Connection Board
Attachment of Head Amplifier
Step 1. Attach a head amplifier to the HLM with TORX driver (T10) lightly. Pay attention that all
guide pins of the head amplifier are properly inserted into the HLM.
Step 2. Attach an HGA casette to the HLM and see that all pogo pins of the head casette has good
102
Chapter 4
contact to the electrode pattern on the head amplifier. If contact is bad, make a fine
adjustment on the positioning of the head amplifier after attachment.
1. Chapter Title
Assembly Replacement and Post-Repair Procedures
Replacement of Onstage Buffer Unit and Connection Board
Step 3. Fasten screws and fix the head amplifier to the HLM tightly.
Inspecting the Pads Condition
Four sets of this are furnished with the system as spares. When you need them more, order
PN E5029-65001. It consists of 20 long pads and 10 short pads.
Performance Verification
2. Chapter Title
The life time is approximately 100,000 contacts. However, improper operation might
damage the wire on the pad. This causes the short circuit between the terminals on the
connection board.
Follow steps below and check that the head amplifier is properly attached.
Step 1. Start the system up and prepare for head measurement.
3. Chapter Title
Step 2. Attach a head, that is know to be working properly, to a casette and measure DCR. If the
result of the measurement is correct, the head amplifier is properly attached. If the result is
clearly wrong (for example the result is clearly big or 0), the head amplifier is not properly
attached. That means, pogo pins on the casette and electrode on the amplifier has bad
contact. In this case, return to the section “Attachment of Head Amplifier” and check
contact.

Removal
Step 1. Remove all cables (GPIB cable, IEEE-1394 cable, and serial cable) from the PC.
Step 2. Remove GPIB card from the PC.
Step 3. Remove IEEE-1394 card from the PC.
Replacement
Step 1. Install the Agilent E5023A software including Agilent I/O Library into the PC. See
Chapter 5, “Software Recovery,” on page 133 for the installation procedure.
NOTE
You must install Agilent I/O Library into the PC before installing the GPIB and IEEE-1394
cards.
Step 2. Install the GPIB card which was used for the old PC into a PCI slot of the new PC.
Step 3. Install the IEEE-1394 card which was used for the old PC into a PCI slot of the new PC.
NOTE
Generally, you can install a PCI card into any slot in the PC. However, the card position
might cause the problem in case of combination of GP-IB and IEEE-1394 cards.
From the rear view, the IEEE-1394 card must be installed in the most upper (or left) slot
and the GP-IB card must be installed in the second slot from the top (or left).
There is a cable on the IEEE-1394 PCI card to supply power from the connector on the
FDD or the CD-ROM drives. The cable has 4-pin-female connector on one side and has a
4-pin-female and another 4-small-pin-female connectors on the other side in order to split
the power. The 4-small-pin-female is connect with IEEE-1394 card. When you replace the
IEEE-1394 card, you have to remove the cable from the defective PC, too. Then install
them into a new PC.
Step 4. Connect GPIB cable, IEEE-1394 cable, and serial cable to the PC. See “PC (System
Controller) Replacement” on page 104 for how to connect those cables.
