NewScope-6 is an LCD retrofit kit to replace the monochrome CRT displays used in HP® 8560A and 8560E series portable spectrum analyzers:

  • 8560A 8561A 8562A
  • 8563A 8561B 8562B
  • 8560E 8561E 8562E
  • 8563E 8564E 8565E


  • Bitmap font with better clarity over the original vector font on an LCD screen
  • Display items are differentiated by colors, similar to later models of the same test equipment family
  • Four display schemes selectable by the Focus adjustment
  • Enlarged marker in distinct shape and color
  • Resolution enhancement takes advantage of the 600 point original resolution of the 8560A/E display and gives a smooth curve with reduced jaggedness
  • Zero span fast sweeps <30ms are digitized. The X axis is timed with a crystal oscillator that requires no adjustment.
  • The LCD display is powered from the source that was used for the CRT high voltage module
