The Tektronix T5610 is a CRT used in the 561A and 567.

Revolutionary at the time, the T5610 incorporated many “firsts” that would remain through most of Tek's analog scopes to follow:

  • a rectangular faceplate allowing for a more compact CRT
  • a ceramic CRT envelope which provided more mechanical precision than a blown glass tube
  • a separate face plate made from a flat glass panel
  • graticule markings printed on the phosphor side of the faceplate, totally eliminating parallax errors, and allowing for better edge illumination
