A modified 3A74 MOD 730A (with a charge pre-amplifier on channel 1 to accommodate piezoelectric pressure transducers) was part of the Engine Analyzer package.
|Input impedance||1 MΩ // 47 pF|
|Deflection||20 mV/Div to 10 V/Div in 1–2–5 sequence|
Each input signal passes through switchable input attenuators and then into a cathode-follower made from a 7586 Nuvistor triode driving a PNP differential amplifier. The output of this differential amplifier, for each of the four channels, passes through a diode-based analog signal switching network (multiplexer). The output of that multiplexer drives the output amplifier, which is part transistor, part tube. The one-hot select line signals for the multiplexer are generated by a transistor-based ring oscillator, a four-state cyclic state machine. This allows each of the input signals to be traced on the screen, one after another.
The 3A74 contains a total of eight 7586 Nuvistors.
