Hewlett Packard 8175A Generator
Digital Signal Generator
is a digital signal Generator
which can deliver
parallel and serial data with programmable patterns and
pattern durations. It can interact with a device under test
and so provide simulation of a wide range of data paths in
digital systems. Some key features of the 8175A
are as follows:
Parallel data patterns Serial data streams
Virtual Memory Expansion
Programmable Pattern Durations
Interaction with DUT
Most logic families
Fine Timing option
Manual and automated operation
24 ch. / I kbit ea. / 50 MBit ea.

(Service related information is located in the corresponding
sections of the complete manual set).
Figures 1-1 and 1-2, show the mainframe, the Accessories
supplied with each and those available.
The contents of this manual are as follows:
Chapter 1 covers instrument identification, description,
, specifications and other basic
Chapter 2 provides installation instructions for the 8175A
and its Accessories
. It also includes information about
initial inspection and damage claims, preparation for use,
packaging, storage and shipment
Chapter 3 is sub-divided into several sections, the purpose
of the chapter is to familiarise you with operation of the
8175A. Manual operation of the 8175A
is covered with the aid
of a "Getting Started" section which includes several worked
examples. The section is designed to help you learn the
basics of instrument operation as quickly as possible.
Comprehensive descriptions of all Main Displays, their
menus, edit capabilites and how to use them are included.
Remote (or programmable) operation is described, also with
the aid of several worked examples.
Appendices A-l and 2 Describe all display messages which may
appear on the Generator
screen during operation (A-l) and
Appendix B explains how to control a printer.
Appendix C explains how to control the disc memory accessory.
Chapter 4 details performance testing of the instrument.
