Title: software for HP-33120A generator ?
Post by: peterp on May 24, 2019, 03:58:57 am
Hi all,

I've checked that the HP34811A BenchLink Arb software for this generator is no longer available. Are there newer
versions of HP (or other) software that can be used with the 33120A ?

Hi,

Do you mean 34811a or 33120a?
And for which operation system?

For windows I use this softwarebundle with my hp 33120a:

A software, called: "FuncGen_25Aug_a.exe". This is the main install software package.
You also need the agilent/keysight IOLibSuite with an Agilent USB-GPIB Converter or a NI card with the NI driver. (I am not sure what is necessary for communicatian via serial link)
Further there is a plugin for pulses, "WFE_PulseAddin and a pattern editor called PatternEditorInstall_4.0msi".

This sofware is rather old, but is still working, even with the latest Windows 10 64bit version.

Thanks for the info.

I think the 34811a refers to the software that is no longer available.

I googled "FuncGen_25Aug_a.exe" ... is it part of the IntuiLink Waveform Editor ?

Hi,
I am not 100% sure but I think it was indeed part of  IntuiLink Waveform Editor.
