Flex 6400 Spec confusion

The documentation for the 6400 doesn't mention SCU's, it just says two independent receivers. I assume that the 6400 is similar to the 6300, 1 SCU with up to two slice receivers. Has the concept of SCU's and slice receivers changed in the design between the 6300 and 6400?

The 6400 specs are only one antenna connected at a time (one SCU) with a maximum of two panadapters and two slices maximum. Same as the 6300.

Slices are independent receivers.  The 6400 has one SCU (RF digitizer).  

In the 6400 Specs, the 2nd and third line say:
 
Spectral Capture Units (digitizers): One (1) Maximum Slice Receivers: Two (2)

Tim,

Thanks. I failed to see the Specs tab on that page, I was just looking at the Features tab.
