HP 8566B Spectrum Analyzer and Oscillator Frequency Response
Software engineer Kerry D. Wong continues his exploration of his 1980s/90s-era HP 8566B Spectrum Analyzer.
In this video, I demonstrated using a spectrum analyzer and a signal generator to trace the frequency response and determine the resonant frequency of a filter or oscillator. This technique is useful when tracking generator is not available. The spectrum analyzer used here is an HP 8566B and the RF signal generator used is HP 8642B.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
