If you get the "Sorry, the file cannot be displayed. There seems to be a technical issue ..." error when trying to view an image, a workaround is to click on the cog icon in the upper right side of the media viewer, and then select "Disable Media Viewer". We are aware of the problem and are looking for a solution.

The Tektronix Type A is a single-channel preamp introduced in 1959 for 500-series scopes. A 545 with a Type A has a system risetime of 18 nanoseconds. The plug-in uses a 12AU6 in the front end as a cathode follower. This input stage drives the second stage, a differential amplifier made of two 12AU6 tubes. The second stage drives the output stage, a pair of cathode followers made of both halves of at 12AT7 tube. The plate of each output tube is connected to the cathode of the other output tube by a 0.005 microfarad capacitor. This is intended to improve high-frequency balance.
