The HP 16500C is a mainframe of the HP Logic Analysis System. It offers a modular structure for plug-in cards with a wide range of state, timing, oscilloscope, and pattern generator capabilities. This allows the user to configure the system with only the necessary modules for a particular application.

When the instrument is powered up, pre-determined values are automatically assigned to the different fields of the menus to configure the instrument for basic measurements. This allows you to make a basic measurement by turning on the instrument, connecting the probes, and touching the Run field. Often only minor changes are needed for more complex measurements.

With the intermodule capabilities of the Logic Analysis System, you can make interactive measurements between modules. This allows you to configure modules to interact with each other using the triggering capabilities of one module and the acquisition capabilities of another.

The LAN interface provides direct connection to computers located on an Ethernet local area network (LAN). The LAN interface enables you to upload measurement data for post-processing and easy access to data files.

  • Options:
    • The HP 16501 is the add-on mainframe for expanding the module capacity of the HP 16500C. When the HP 16501 is connected to the HP 16500C, they function as a single ten-module system which is turned on and controlled by the HP 16500C. The HP 16501 forms a tightly coupled system with the HP 16500C, permitting each of the two mainframes to arm or trigger any module from any other module
    • The HP 16505 Prototype Analyzer acts as an analysis and display processor for the system. It works in concert with the measurement modules to provide a complete analysis environment, and allows you to set up measurements by manipulating icons. Its windowed environment also lets you see your setup and data simultaneously
