Upgrading your system
Your product can be easily upgraded after the initial purchase. Most PXIe VSA options
are controlled by a licensing key and can be quickly upgraded by the user.
How to upgrade your M9393A PXIe performance VSA:
1. Contact your Keysight representative to place an order for an option upgrade.
2. For frequency upgrades, return your PXI VSA to a Keysight Service Center
3. For all other upgrades you will receive your hardware entitlement certificate via
email.
4. Redeem the certificate online by following the instructions provided to receive a
license key file.
5. Install the license key file using the Keysight License Manager.
6. Begin using the new capability.
Using a non-Keysight chassis
The M9393A (with M9300A frequency reference) can be successfully installed in a
non-Keysight PXI chassis. Please use the
following guidelines.
–– Ensure that the chassis has 4 consecutive PXIe or PXI-H slots which can be used by
the M9393A (6 slots if using M9169E) and an additional slot for M9300A.
–– Ensure that the chassis and controller supports peer-to-peer PXI Express I/O switch
topology.
–– Ensure that controller selected is compatible with chassis.
Please contact your Keysight representative for more detailed information. For technical
assistance with non-Keysight equipment, please refer to the equipment manufacturer’s
website.
