Nick,

When HP step their product version, usually it is some significant 
changes to how the product is built. Some optional/new features 
sometimes get integrated in the process.

I don't know why the TI-averaging feature of the Option 040/041/042 
isn't available in the B version. Could be that when they got that far, 
they felt they had other products providing that feature and it was not 
widely used anyway. There can be many reasons why things get's dropped 
along the path.

Would be fun to have a GPIB interface in the HP5328A. :)

Cheers,
Magnus
