Agilent / HP / Keysight 16522A
16522A 200 M Vector/Sec Pattern Generator Module
The Agilent / HP 16522A pattern generator can simulate a circuit initialization sequence and then signal the state or timing analyzer to begin measurements. The compare mode on the state analyzer must be used to determine if the circuit or subsystem is functioning as expected.
If only a few analysis channels are needed to do device substitution or functional testing, the Agilent / HP 16522A pattern generator is the best choice.
The Agilent 16522A or the 16720A can be used as a substitute for missing boards, integrated circuits (ICs), or buses instead of waiting for the missing pieces.
Up to five, 40-channel Agilent 16522A's can be interconnected within a 16700 Series mainframe or expansion frame. This configuration supports vectors of any width up to 240 bits with excellent channel-to-channel skew characteristics (see specific data pod characteristics in Pattern Generation Modules Specifications starting on page 95 of the data sheet).
The Agilent 16522A will operate at 200 MHz in half channel mode, with 20 channels of stimulus.
For the 16522A, the internal clock is selected as a clock period from 5 ns to 250 ps in a 1, 2, 2.5, 4, 5, 8 sequence (4 KHz to 200 MHz). A Clock Out signal is available from the clock pod and can be used as an edge strobe with a variable delay of up to 11 ns.
The Agilent 16522A supports an ASCII file format to facilitate connectivity to other tools in a design environment. Data in this ASCII format is limited to 258,048 Vectors in the 16522A.
The Agilent 16522A pattern generator requires a single slot in a logic analysis system frame. The 16720A and 16522A cannot be intermixed, but they can be configured in systems with up to five of each card for a total of 240 or 200 channels of stimulus, respectively.
