If you get the "Sorry, the file cannot be displayed.

The Tektronix 7A42 is a four-channel 350 MHz plug-in for 7000-series scopes.

It was specifically designed for logic signals (TTL, ECL, CMOS) and supports triggering based on Boolean conditions of the four inputs.

A fifth trace, "Trigger View", displays the trigger function output or external clock input.

The input V/Div setting can only be seen in the mainframe's readout.

Tektronix recommended the P6131 10 MΩ probe, and the P6230 variable-offset 450 Ω probe for ECL circuits.

Specifications

Bandwidth 350 MHz
Deflection
  • 0.1 / 0.2 / 0.5 V/Div (TTL mode)

  • each direct or through 10:1 probe
Input impedance 1MΩ or 50 Ω
Max. input voltage
  • at 1 MΩ: 25 V DC+peak AC below 36 MHz, down to 3 V AC at 300 MHz
  • at 50Ω: 5 V RMS during any 1 ms interval
Trigger level
  • -1.27 to +1.28 V (TTL mode) in 10 mV steps
  • -254 mV to +256 mV (ECL mode) in 2 mV steps (or ×10)
Hysteresis 40 mV (TTL), 8 mV (ECL) (or ×10)
Features
  • NiCd battery to preserve front-panel control status
Weight 2.8 kg / 6.2 lb

Internals

The 7A42's functions are controlled by an 8085A microprocessor.

Each of the four input attenuator circuits contains five miniature relays. The bistable relay coils are wired in a 4x5 matrix.

The 7A42 contains its own switch mode PSU, based on an SG3524 controller, that generates +5 V, -2 V and -5 V from the mainframe's +/-50 V rails.
