NewScope-8 is an LCD retrofit kit to replace the CRT display subsystem in the HP 85662A spectrum analyzer display used in:

  • 8566A, 8566B Spectrum Analyzer
  • 8568A, 8568B Spectrum Analyzer
  • 8567A Spectrum Analyzer


  • Supports VGA LCD panels (XGA resolution requires special order)
  • Bitmap font gives better clarity over the original vector font when rendered on an LCD panel
  • Enlarged markers in user configurable shape and colors
  • Resolution enhancement takes advantage of the 1024 point original resolution of the 85662A display and gives a smooth curve with reduced jaggedness
  • Four display schemes selectable by the align pot
  • Sweeps of 10ms down to 1us are now digitized and stored in trace A memory, which can be captured via GPIB. The X axis is timed with a crystal oscillator and requires no adjustment
  • Compatible with existing GPIB automation software
  • The LCD back light is powered from the power supply used for the CRT high voltage module
