    Repeat steps 3 - 5 until the AFG returns 0 (zero) for the current calibration point: NOTE The AFG will cycle through calibration points 1 through 14 until the readings are within range. The AFG signals that the calibration has been successfully completed by returning a 0 (zero) for the current calibration point.

    AC Flatness Adjustment Procedure Description An AC adjustment is performed on the AFG by reading a series of voltages output by the AFG, then entering those values back into the AFG. After all measurements have been completed, new calibration constants are calculated and stored in non-volatile memory.

  • Page 68

    Adjustment Procedure 1. Reset the AFG: *RST;*CLS 2. Set up the AFG to output a 1 V peak, 100 kHz sinewave: VOLT 1VPK; :FREQ 100E3 INIT:IMM 3. Set the power meter expected frequency to 100 kHz and measure the AFG output. Convert the reading to RMS volts and note the result for use in step 5.

  • Page 69

    7. Trigger the DMM and send the result to the AFG: <reading> CAL:AC:POINT? The AFG will return, in order, the current calibration point and an error code. Any non-zero error code indicates a problem. 8. Connect the power meter to the AFG Output as shown in Figure 3-2. Repeat steps 9 through 11 until the AFG returns a current calibration point of 0: NOTE...
