Re: 7904 - Very Dim Trace

Jim McIntyre
 

Thanks all for your ideas and responses,

To David - My HV probe is a bit suspect. I didn't want to apply 3kV to my Fluke, so I ginned up a voltage divider. It's spot on at 100V, but maybe the carbon resistors misbehave at higher voltages. Thanks for bringing this up. I'll poke around and see if I can find a decent HV probe.


To Marian and David - XY deflection is OK - certainly not off by more than a few %.


To David - Yes, U1635's output measures 0.6 - 0.9V.


Please keep noodling on this - I'll get back in here with a better measurement of the cathode voltage...




Thanks again,


Jim

Re: OT: Win 8.1 and 10?

Win7 (as well as others) have detection of various hardware as DRM. How well does that work in the VM realm?

I did one project (FAA approved software) where everything had to be kept for a very long period, including source and executables, and had to be able to be recompiled with the exact bitwise match. I chose a VM environment to do this and always wondered what would happen if the VM files were tried many years later on a different machine. Would Microsoft DRM block operation?

So what about all the scopes with Windows in them? Upgrading those is probably a non-starter.

It helps if you keep your old o/s around indefinitely...

One option that may be worth considering is to make a
fresh install of your old OS "inside" a "guest" virtual machine.
Many applications will run successfully, the major exception
being those that need 3D graphic acceleration, e.g. games
and some CAD.

My approach is to create:
* VM1: a plain vanilla install + updates
* VM2: install + common applications and libraries
* VMx: take VM1 or VM2 as appropriate, and install
another application

Note that so far as the "host" o/s is concerned, each VM is simply a
set of (large!) files that can be backed up and copied in the usual way.

Well, "copied" isn't quite the case but the end effect is the
same: the VM software has tools that enable a VM to be
"cloned" to one with a different name. That's the way
multiple VMx can be created starting with VM1 or VM2.

The VMs survive changes of host o/s including from a
Linux host to a Windows host and vice versa, and reputedly
from one VM manager to another.

Jim,
That is what I am going to do. There are a lot of new things in
8.1. I am also going to look for a book. I have plenty of horse power. I
am using an AsRock EP2C612WS motherboard. Two Intel E5-2603 1.6 GHz, 6
core processors. 32 GB of ECC Crucial ram. To eventually be expanded to
128 GB. One AMD Profire W5100 graphics card with 2 GB of 256 bit, GDDR5
ram. Eventually I will have two of these cards. These will be setup in a
SLI configuration. There is 6.3 TB of hard drive space. Eventually
there will be 18.3 TB of drive space. That is the core of the system and
this is installed in a Thermaltake Core X9 case.
Right now I am use air cooling. I am going to eventually use liquid
cooling and I will have a second X9 that will enclose the cooling
system. I have also installed a TV card and USB 3.0 card. I am waiting
on an Adaptec U39320 Ultra 320 SCSI card. This will interface my tape
drives to the system. I am still installing the application software and
this will probably take me a week or so. I am have to update the
software as I am going as a lot of my programs are ten to twenty years old.
Thanks,

Since you had Win8.1 to install, it suggests that you have install

back up all your data to CD, delete it from your HD, and then install
Win10. Monitor the installation and limit data access and delivery to
the cloud, naturally. Then put your data back and play with it some more.

I did a similar build a few years ago for my son. Having a choice
between the rock-solid but soon to be discontinued Win7 and the brand
new but untested Win8.1, I gave him 8.1 and when the update offer came
along I made sure he knew about it.

The system was powerful enough for mega-gaming and the video card was
good enough to mine for bitcoin. I found that when I built it, I
developed a deep-seated hatred for 8.1; since then I've come to
believe that 10 is a much better choice in every respect.

I was hoping my son would confront this opportunity to choose.

And choose to format everything and install a *nix distro like Ubuntu.
Then run his games in a virtual machine.

Dave,
I think that I am going to stick with Win 8.1 for now. I went with
8.1 because it was only $5 more than 7. Notice that I waited for 8.1 and
didn't go to 8 first. I did have to get all new hardware which I
wouldn't have to have done with 7. But in the long run it was worth it.
I look at pre-built systems but there was nothing that gave me the
combination of speed, expansion abilities, and upgrade options. Of
course none of them gave with the OS disk, only a recovery disk.
Thanks,

Re: 7904A Basket Cases

 

I think you are referring to my description of what happens to a 7603
if the PDA (post deflection acceleration) is disconnected. If the
lack of PDA from the multiplier is a problem, then the beam finder
should still have an effect and I verified this on my 7603.

On the 7904A, one of the poles of the beam finder switch disconnects
the focus control at the display control board as shown on schematic 2
while the other controls the horizontal and vertical deflection so
unless there are two different problems, either the beam finder switch
is bad or a connector to the display control board is not connected.
At least that is where I would start.

On Tue, 09 Feb 2016 01:01:32 +0300, you wrote:

...
The other is more interesting, powering up with a display,
collapsed and unfocused like the beam finder was stuck on. Messing with the
beam finder button has no effect. Obviously the beam finder switch could be
stuck or shorted internally, or components associated with it could have failed, but
what concerns me is the possibility of a failed HV multiplier. I read somewhere
that symptoms somewhat like this could be a result of the multiplier failing.
I'm looking at the schematic and theory of operation and it's not quite "clicking"
in my brain. Does the fact that the beam finder switch does nothing narrow
it to issues in that neighborhood, or am I possibly going to need lessons in
multiplier construction?

this is sure to take me just about forever, if I ever get it done, so don't
hold your breath.
Here at least <http://www.ni.com/pdf/manuals/320045.pdf> is an old-style
service manual for the NI GPIB-PCIIA card. It seems to contain schematics
for the ISA card as well as suggested test sequences phrased in IO reads
and writes.

Hey y'all,

I've seen a couple of threads on EEVBlog and the Tek forum where people
claim to have hacked dosemu to emulate the NI GPIB card(s). Presumably
this
forwards the GPIB calls to Linux-GPIB.
This would allow running TekMate and the TDS field adjust software on
contemporary hardware. I've tried to contact the people who made these
claims a couple of times without success.
I've looked into what this takes a little bit, and it looks pretty
trivial
to emulate the hardware, but I'm too much of a GPIB noob to make headway
on
the translation by myself.
I've mainly played with this because I'd love to be able to take a look
at
TekMate hooked up to my 2430, and one day I'm sure I'll have to run the
FAS
at my TDS784D :).

Have any of y'all done this, or know of code drops related to this that I
could work from?

Siggi
Siggi,

Well, now that my move to Grayling, Michigan is complete, it's time to
start setting up the shop again. Since I run strictly Linux/Unix here,
I'll be following this with you. I've got a GPIB card that'll be going
in a CentOS system, so I'll be interested to see how this works. I'm
typing this from an Ubuntu laptop, so until I get the shop set up, I may
be able to do a little here on this computer, though I can't hook up a
GPIB card to it.

Still unpacking boxes and setting up the place though, so it may go in
spurts. ;-)

Mark
