HP 16500 Logic Analyzer

HP 16500 Logic Analyzer

HP 16500 Logic Analyzer


Has anyone used this analyzer before?  I'm trying to monitor the state of a processor.  Any quick references or links to where I can learn how to use this?  


RE: HP 16500 Logic Analyzer


Try these links, they are for a 16500C. If you have a B then change the name of the file eg the first link is
16500cug.pdf    change it to 16500bug.pdf for the B version

Good luck :

The above link is the user guide

The above link is the user reference

The above link is the service guide

The above link is the programmers guide

The above link is 1 day course

Any help ?, yes no let me know.


RE: HP 16500 Logic Analyzer

Yes, helpful.  Now that I know how to use it, how can I save the data on a floppy?  I can save the data on the hard disk, but I am unalbe to save the data on a floppy.  I read the user manual and reference and it doesn't help at all.  I am using the HP 16505A prototype analyzer along with the HP 16500C Logic Analyzer.  The 16505A is a unix based software, but I'm having problems saving configs and data onto a floppy disk.  Any suggestions?


RE: HP 16500 Logic Analyzer

If the 16500C is like the 16500B, then when you attempt to save, press the harddisk key and you should be able to select the floppy disk (flexible disk).

RE: HP 16500 Logic Analyzer

Yes, I did try that but when I first save onto the hard disk, the file size is 6MB.  It doesn't fit onto a floppy.  I want to save not only the config and data files.  More importantly the data files, but I found out that inorder to view the data files the config has to be viewed as well.  I did get the 16505a to save onto a floppy.  I figured out a way to do so.  Is there a way to save the files from the 16500 to a floppy.  I read the manual and it did say there is a pack file function, but I am unable to find it.

eBook - Mastering Tolerances for Machined Parts
When making CNC machined parts, mastering tolerances can be challenging. Are general tolerances good enough? When does it make sense to call out for tighter tolerances? Do you need a better understanding of fits, datums, or GD&T? Learn about these topics and more in Xometry's new e-book. Download Now
eBook – How to Choose the Correct Corrosion Testing Method
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
