A bit disappointing.. very few details, and what about low frequency and DC calibration?
Or is there a 4th part pending?

But anyhow, there were many 3458A in every place.

No 4th part, you get what you get.

Interesting, that they also have/had(?) some Rohde & Schwarz gear next to the phase noise measurement cubicle. I wonder what that stuff does in an Agilent lab?

One day this gear will end up in Graysonline, or in Keysight's eBay shop  ;D

For the volt and ohm nuts, the interesting stuff was across the hall in the standards lab.
working instruments :Keithley 260,261,2750,7708, 2000 (calibrated), 2015, 236, 237, 238, 147, 220,  Rigol DG1032  PAR Model 128 Lock-In amplifier, Fluke 332A, Gen Res 4107 KVD, 4107D KVD, Fluke 731B X2 (calibrated), Fluke 5450A (calibrated)

Dave,

I wanted to update this comment as I saw the standards lab video after I made the above comment. The standards lab tour was disappointing as I do not dabble in time and/or frequency. My hobby lab is all SMUs, voltage references and calibrated resistances, DMMs, nanovoltmeters, picoamp source, nanovolt source, etc.

Your host mentioned the "cells" across the hall. I think he was referring to their voltage standard boxes. Probably Fluke 732Bs.

If you get a chance to re-visit this standards lab, please ask for some discussion and eyes-on of the voltage and resistance standards.

cheers....
