Re: 2465B Parametric Freq Measurement Error
The parametric measurements use the trigger hybrid extensively,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
and their performance is directly related to how well that hybrid
performs. Some are better than others.
After successfully calibrating my 2465B, it reports "All tests passed" on start up. The question marks are all gone! My issue is with the parametric measurement of frequency. When I attempt to measure the frequency of a sine wave at frequencies higher than 10 MHz, the scope reports the frequency as 35.62 kHz. Any test frequency above 10 MHz gets the exact same report, 35.62 kHz. Below 10 MHz, it reports various incorrect values (i.e. a 4.89 MHz signal is reported as 6.35 MHz). At about 500 kHz and lower frequencies, the scope reports the correct frequency. I have replaced the PAL at U975 - no change. Any suggestions?
