Determine Your PNA's CPU Version

 

Many items related to support depend upon knowing the type of CPU that is installed. This page helps you determine exactly which version of CPU your PNA has installed. The CPU is visible on the rear panel. Be careful with CPUs shipped since 2011 as three different versions may look identical. See notes below.

cpu2000 (20K)

Note: The 2000MHz Core Duo, 2000MHz i7, and 1870MHz Celeron CPUs look identical except for the part number label on the i7 and Celeron CPUs only. See note below.
CPU:
2000 MHz Core Duo

W1312-60068 - non-RoHS W1312-60190 - RoHs
(System CPU Version 5.0)

cpu2000-2sp (20K)

Note: The 2000MHz Core Duo, the 2000MHz i7, and the 1870MHz Celeron CPUs all look identical except for a label (on the i7 or Celeron CPU) containing the part number of the board. The label may differ slightly in appearance from what is shown above. All N522xA products were shipped with the i7 CPU even if no label is present. Some other newer PNA's may also have this i7 CPU, but with no label. If unsure, look at the yellow part number label on the bottom shield of the CPU Assembly. Alternately, right-click on My Computer, and click on Properties; the CPU type will be displayed. All new PNA-L models (N5231A thru N5239A) have the 1.87GHz Celeron CPU.

Not all CPU assemblies are usable on every instrument. For example, the 1.6, 2.0, and 2.2 GHz CPU boards are only compatible with the PNA-X and newer families.
The 266MHz CPU was only used on the E8356A, E8357A, and E8358A.
Certain CPUs may have a minimum or maximum limitation regarding firmware revision.
While the pictures show the hard drive tray installed, ordering CPU part number does not include the hard drive or tray.
*The 2200MHz CPU must use a drive tray with a grey plastic frame. Use of a tray with the older black plastic frame will physically damage the CPU!
