Using an M9290A in a non-Keysight chassis
The M9290A 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 M9290A.
–– 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.
1. At the time of manufacture, the hardware related to many of these options was fully adjusted and the option performance was verified to be within its
warranted specifications. Within one year of the initial calibration date of the analyzer, this option is fully calibrated with no further adjustment or
verification testing.
2. If this analyzer has been adjusted as part of a repair or calibration during its first year, or if the analyzer is more than one year old, additional adjustment and
performance verification tests are required to ensure that some newly installed options are functioning properly. However, the completion of these tests
does not guarantee that the analyzer meets all warranted specifications.
