Thanks Steven. I'd definitely be interested in anything you can turn up. It
is part of an ex-university rescue consignment I'll be picking it up on
Tuesday (I may also be getting an Axil 320 and an AS2000).

Altavista threw up the following reference for the 1640a:


The suggestion that it was released in 1978 doesn't fill me with a lot of
hope, but serial protocols are pretty simple and HP test gear is (was) well
known for its quality. So fingers crossed.
