SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS
GENERAL - This is a Safety Class I instrument (provided with
terminal for protective earthing).
•
Do not install substitute parts or perform any unauthorized
modification to the instrument.
OPERATION - BEFORE APPLYING POWER verify that the
power transformer primary is matched to the available line
voltage, the correct fuse is installed, and Safety Precautions
are taken (see the following warnings). In addition, note the
instrument's external markings which are described under
"Safety Symbols.·
•
Adjustments described in the manual are performed with
power supplied to the instrument while protective covers
are removed. Energy available at many points may, if contacted, result in personal injury.
•
Any adjustment, maintenance, and repair of the opened instrument under voltage should be avoided as much as
pOSSible, and when inevitable, should be carried out only
by a skilled person who is aware of the hazard involved.
WARNING
I
•
Servicing instructions are for use by service-trained personnel. To avoid dangerous electric shock, do not perform
any servicing unless qualified to do so.
•
BEFORE SWITCHING ON THE INSTRUMENT, the protective earth terminal of the instrument must be connected to
the protective conductor of the (mains) powercord. The
mains plug shall only be inserted in a socket outlet
provided with a protective earth contact. The protective action must not be negated by the use of an extension cord
(power cable) without a protective conductor (grounding).
Grounding one conductor of a two-conductor outlet is not
sufficient protection.
=
CapaCitors inside the instrument may still be charged
even if the instrument has been disconnected from its
source of supply.
SAFETY SYMBOLS
Instruction manual symbol. The product will be
marked with this symbol when it is necessary for
the user to refer to the instruction manual in order
to protect against damage to the product.
&
!
Indicates hazardous voltages
•
•
If this instrument is to be energized via an auto-transformer (for voltage reduction) make sure the common terminal is connected to the earth terminal of the power
source.
Any interruption of the protective (grounding) conductor
(inside or outside the instrument) or disconnecting the
protective earth terminal will caus~ a potential shock
hazard that could result in personal injury.
Earth terminal (sometimes used in manual to indicate circuit common connected to grounded
chassis).
•
Whenever it is likely that the protection h~s been impaired, the instrument must be made inoperative and be
secured against any unintended operation.
•
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 or fire hazard.
•
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.
I
The WARNING sign denotes a hazard. It
calls attention to a procedure, practice,
or the like, which, if not correctly performed or adhered to, could result in personal injury. Do not
proceed beyond a WARNING sign until the indicated conditions are fully understood and met.

SECTION III
PERFORMANCE TESTS
3-1. INTRODUCTION
The procedures in this section test the HP
16515A/16A 1 GHz Timing Analyser's electrical performance using the specifications listed in Section
I as the performance standards. All tests can be
performed without access to the interior of the instrument. At the end of this section is a form that
can be used as a record of performance test
results.
3-2. RECOMMENDED TEST
EQUIPMENT
Equipment recommended for performance tests is
listed in table 1-2. Any equipment that satisfies the
critical specifications given in the table may be substituted for the recommended models.
3-3. TEST RECORD
Results of performance tests may be tabulated on
. the Performance Test Record (table 3-1) at the end
of the procedures. The test record lists all of the
tested specifications and their acceptable limits.
The results recorded on the test record may be
used for comparison in periodic maintenance and
troubleshooting or after repairs have been made.
3-5. PERFORMANCE TEST
PROCEDURES
All performance tests should be performed at the
instruments environmental operating temperature
and after a 15-minute warm up period.
3-6. TEST CONNECTOR
The performance tests and troubleshooting procedures require connecting pulse generator outputs
to probe assembly inputs. Figure 3-1 is a test connector that may be built to allow testing of multiple
channels (up to eight at one time). The test connector consists of a BNC connector and two
lengths of wire. Connecting more than eight channels to the test connector at a time will induce loading of the circuit and true signal representation will
degrade. Test results may not be accurate if more
than eight channels are connected to the test connector.
The Hewlett-Packard part number for the BNC connector in figure 3-1 is 1250-1032. An equivalent
part may be used in place of the Hewlett-Packard
part.
3-4. PERFORMANCE TEST INTERVAL
Periodic performance verification of the HP
16515A/16A 1 GHz Timing Analyzer is required at
two year intervals. The instrument's performance
should be verified after it has been serviced, or if
improper operation is suspected. Further checks
requiring access to the interior of the instrument
are included in the adjustment section, but are not
required for the performance verification.

HP 16515A/16A - Replaceable Parts
SECTION V
REPLACEABLE PARTS
5-1. INTRODUCTION
• Description of part.
This section contains parts and ordering information for the HP 16515A/16A 1 GHz Timing Analyzer
Module. Table 5-1 lists the reference designators
and abbreviations used throughout this manual.
Table 5-2 lists all replaceable parts by reference
designator.
• Check digit.
5-2. ABBREVIATIONS
Table 5-1 lists abbreviations used throughout the.
manual. In some cases two forms of the abbreviations are used, one in all capital letters, the other
partially or not capitalized. This was done because
the abbreviations in the parts list are always all
capitals. However, in other parts of the manual
other abbreviation forms are used with both lower
and uppercase letters.
5-3. REPLACEABLE PARTS .LIST
Table 5-2 lists replaceable parts and is organized
as follows:
• Electrical assemblies in alphanumerical order
by reference designation.
• Chassis-mounted parts in alphanumerical
order by reference designation.
• Electrical assemblies and their components in
alphanumerical order by reference designation.
The information given for each part consists of the
following:
The total quantity for each part is only given once
at the first appearance of the part number in the list.
5-4. ORDERING INFORMATION
To order a part listed in the replaceable parts table,
quote the Hewlett-Packard part number, check
digit, indicate the quantity required, and address
the order to the nearest Hewlett-Packard office.
To order a part that is not listed in the replaceable
parts table, include the instrument model number,
instrument serial number, the description and function of the part, and number of parts required. Address the order to the nearest Hewlett-Packard office.
5-5. EXCHANGE ASSEMBLIES
Exchange assemblies are available when a
repairable assembly is returned to Hewlett-Packard. These assemblies have been set up on an Exchange program. This allows the customer to exchange the faulty assembly with one that has been
repaired, calibrated, and performance verified by
the factory. The cost is significantly less than that
of a new assembly.
Exchange assemblies are listed in a separate section in the replaceable parts table. They have a
part number in the form XXXXX-695XX (where the
new parts would be XXXXX-665XX). Before ordering an exchange assembly, check with your local
parts or repair organization for procedures.
• Complete reference designation.
• Hewlett-Packard part number.
• Total quantity (Qty) per instrument.

HP 16515A/16A - Replaceable Parts
5-6. DIRECT MAIL ORDER SYSTEM
Within the USA, Hewlett Packard can supply parts
through direct mail order. The advantages are as
follows:
• Direct ordering and shipment from HewlettPackard Parts Center in Mountain View,
California.
• No maximum or minimum on any mail order
(there Is a minimum order for parts ordered
through local Hewlett-Packard offices when
orders require billing and invoicing).
5-2
• Prepaid transportation (there is a small handling charge for each order).
• No invoices - to provide these advantages,
check or money order must accompany each
order. Mail order forms and specific ordering
information are available through your local
Hewlett-Packard offices.

THEORY OF OPERATION
6-1. INTRODUCTION
This section contains Information for servicing the
HP 16515A/16A 1 GHz Timing Analyzer Module.lncluded is a block level theory and procedures for
module level self diagnostics and troubleshooting.
If the module or a probe assembly is determined
faulty, procedures are provided for module and
probe assembly replacement.
6-2. SAFETY REQUIREMENTS
Specific warnings, cautions, and instructions are
placed wherever applicable throughout the
manual. These must be observed during all phases
of operation, service, and repair of the module.
Failure to comply with them violates safety standards of design, manufacture, and intended use of
this module. Hewlett-Packard assumes no liability
for the failure of the customer to comply with these
safety requirements.
The following paragraphs contain block level
theory of operation. This theory is not intended for
component level troubleshooting, rather it is to be
used to help isolate a module failure to card level.
For component level troubleshooting, the HP
16515A/16A Service Data Supplement is required.
This supplement contains schematics, component
level theory .of operation, component locaters and
a parts Iistforthe HP 16515A/16A 1 GHz Timing
Analyzer Module.
The HP 16515A 1 GHz Timing Analyzer Master
Card is a one board, 16 channel timing analyzer. It
can sample data at up to a 1 GHz rate and be expanded by 16 channels to a total of 32 channels
when a HP 16516A 1 GHz Timing Expansion Card
is added. See figure 6-1.
6-3. RECOMMENDED TEST
EQUIPMENT
Table 1-2 lists recommended test equipment. Any
equipment that satisfies the critical specification
given in the table may be substituted for the recommended models.

TIMEBASE, TRIGGER AND MEMORY
INTERFACE AND 1MB
The timebase is comprised of three major interactive components. Collectively they generate
sample clocks and control prestore and poststore
delays.
The microprocessor interface circuits include the
system data transceiver, decoders for module controllines, a card 10 latch, and intermodule bus
(1MB) circuits. The 1MB enables the timing analyzer
module to trigger/arm other modules or be triggered/armed by the state of another module in the
mainframe.
PROBES
The probes are a passive design. Each of the two
probe pods contains 8 data input lines with grounding at the probe tips.
POD LOADING AND COMPARATORS
Input data from the probe pods are loaded by an
RC network and compared to a pod threshold. The
comparators then translate the Input signals to
ECLlevels.
8 CHANNELS
PER POD
r
INPUT DATA
)
v
The two 8 channel acquisition circuits are identical
except for the operation of the trigger circuitry.
One acquisition chip is the designated control
chip. While pattern and edge detection is performed on unsampled data for each 8 channel
data slice, the results are combined in the control
chip. The control chip then performs duration
count and final trigger detection for the module.
Data is sampled on both edges of the sample
clock. The maximum sample clock rate of 500
MHz will in effect sample at 1 GHz. After sampling,
the data is slowed down by a factor of four and is
stored in memory.

TRIGGER AND MEMORY
INTERFACE
The two 8 channel acquisition circuits are Identical.
Pattern and edge detection are performed on unsampled data for each 8 channel data slice and the
results are transmitted to the control chip on the
master card.
The microprocessor interface circuits are minimal.
They include a system data transceiver and a card
10 latch. The clock and control lines are brought
onto the expansion card through the intercard connect cable or decoded from the system backplane.
PROBES
The probes are identical to the master card probing scheme. Each probe pod contains 8 data input
lines with grounding at the probe tip.
Data is sampled on both edges of the sample

6-5. SELF TESTS
Self tests for the HP 16515A/16A 1 GHz Timing Analyzer Module will identify the improper operation of
major functional areas in the module. They are not intended for component level diagnostics. If there are
multiple timing modules, each must be selected for testing at the main Test System menu.
All self tests can be run without access to the interior of the instrument. If a failure is found, the
troubleshooting flowchart in paragraph 6-6 will instruct you to change one ·or both cards in the module, a
probe assembly, or the intercard cable.
The following procedure outlines how to access, run, and exit the self tests utilities. One test is used as an
example in the procedure. Individual test definitions appear at the end of the test procedure.
The effects of ELECTROSTATIC DISCHARGE can damage electronic components. Use grounded wriststraps and mats when performing any kind of service to this instrument or the cards in it.
Self Test Access Procedure:
1. Disconnect all inputs and turn power switch on.
2. From the startup screen shown in figure 6-4, touch Configuration field, then touch Test.

Test Descriptions:
Some individual self test screens show run/failure information for the mainframe slot followed by the pod
number. An example of this is, mainframe slot D and pod 1 will show up on test screen as D 1. Self test
failures for circuits or components common to all probe pods will be registered under their own description as well as a slot/pod failure.
Fanout Test:
This is a functional test of the acquisition chips, memory chips, comparators and timebase system. At
sample periods of 1 G, 125 M, 6.25 M, and 312.5 k samples/sec, the threshold is set to minimum and a full
memory is acquired and read back. Then the threshold is set to maximum and the procedure is repeated.
Memory chip failures are shown by physical location with the lower case letters a through d. Test information on memory chip location, timebase, and phaser is used by the HP service center for more detailed
failure analysis.
Memory Test:
This test checks the memory chips ( eight on 16515A and eight on 16516A) by clocking a checkerboard
pattern into memory at a 1GHz rate. The CPU then reads the memory to verify the appropriate pattern
stored. Memory chip failures are shown by physical location with the lower case letters a through d. Test
information on memory chip location and the phase generator is used by the HP service center for more
detailed failure analysis.
Pattern Trigger Test:
This test checks the pattern trigger capabilities and consists of three parts.
1. Each data channel in succession is programmed to detect a "1" while the other channels are "don't
care".
2. Each data channel in succession is programmed to detect a "0" while the other channels are "don't
care".
3. Data channel 0 of pod 1 is programmed to detect a "not equal 1" while the other channels are "don't
care".
Failing channels are designated by a "#" (pound) while those passing will be indicated by a "." (dot).
Status bit information and the trigger numbers next to the 16515 label are is used by the HP service center
for more detailed failure analysis.
Edge Trigger Test:
This test checks the edge trigger capabilities and consists of two parts.
1. Each data channel in succession is programmed to detect a rising edge, while the other channels
are "'don't care".
2. Each data channel in succession is programmed to detect a falling edge, while the other channels
are "don't carel!.
Failing channels are designated by a "#" (pound) while those passing will be indicated by a "." (dot).
Status bit information and the trigger numbers next to the 16515 label are used by the HP service center
for more detailed failure analysis.
6-8
HP 16515A/16A - Service
Duration Trigger Test:
This test checks the greater than and less than pattern duration circuitry and consists of two parts.
1. Data channel 0 of pod 1 Is programmed to detect a "1" pattern of greater than 20 J.1.s duration.
2. Data channel 0 of pod 1 is programmed to detect a "1" pattern of less than 20 J.1.s duration
Pvd (prestore valid) bit and Imc Oow measurement complete) bit information is used by the HP service
center for more detailed failure analysis.
Intermodule Bus Test:
This test exercises the intermodule bus interface. The timing analyzer is programmed to trigger on "don't
care", armed by the 1MB. The 1MB is then triggered by the CPU. Pvd (prestore valid) bit and Imc Oow
measurement complete) bit information is used by the HP service center for more detailed failure analysis.
Pattern And Edge Test:
This test ensures that the pattern and edge detectors interact properly. Data channel 0 on pod 2 is
programmed to detect a "1" pattern. Data channel 0 on pod 1 is programmed to detect a rising edge. The
sample rate is set to 1 Gsamples/sec and duration is set to minimum. A trigger should occur on the
second rising edge of channel 0 on pod 1. Lmc Oow measurement complete) bit information is used by
the HP service center for more detailed failure analysis.
Pattern Edge Duration Test:
This test ensures the pattern, edge, and duration interact properly. The triggers are programmed the same ~
as in the pattern and edge test, with the greater than duration set to 20 J.1.s and a sample rate of 80 ns. Pvd
(prestore valid) bit and Imc Oow measurement complete) bit information is used by the HP service center
for more detailed failure analysis.
Timebase/Clock Test:
This test exercises the operation of the oscillator, timebase, and sync/mux chips. The test consists of two
parts.
1. At a clock rate of 625 Hz, the high time and low time of the sample clock is recorded and the delta is
compared to nominal.
2. The prestore counter is loaded with 30000 and the sample clock is set for 16 ns period. The time
until the pvd (prestore valid) bit comes true is measured and compared to nominal.
All 16515/16 Tests:
When this test is selected, all tests are run automatically one time.
6-6. TROUBLESHOOTING
