Hi!

I recently bought an old 8590A on eBay. It works fine, but the HPIB/GPIB connector and cable are missing. The cutout has a adhesive blanking plate over it so it seems that the cable was advertrntly removed at some point. The card is there and appears to be working as the analyzer recognises it. The cable is a standard IDC 24 pin to GPIB as far as I can see. Pinout of the IDC connector is not the standard GPIB one though, but I have traced the connections and documented. I have two questions:

1. Does anyone have a schematic of the board or cable so I can verify what I have documented?
2. How is the cable supposed to be routed inside the unit? There is not an awful lot of free space.

Thanks in advance!
