    The 853A is a digital display for use with the HP 8557A, 8558B and 8559A spectrum analyzer plug-ins. Signals are displayed on either of two independently stored digital traces. Display processing capabilities include maximum hold, digital averaging, and trace normalization for extended measurement capability. A built-in microprocessor manages the display operation and provides access(via the front panel) to built-in routines for display calibration.

  • Traces: dual trace, digitally stored display with resolution of 481 horizontal by 801 vertical points per trace.
  • Signal Processing: maximum hold, digital averaging, and trace normalization.
  • Internal service routines: front-panel buttons access test routines for maintenance of digital hardware.
