The Tektronix DC5009 is a 135 MHz programmable frequency counter plug-in for the TM5000 system. It is internally similar to the DC509 which could be converted to a 5009 through an upgrade kit.

The DC5009 uses reciprocal counting with an internal 100 MHz clock phase-locked to the reference oscillator. An R6504 microprocessor (28-pin variant of a 6502 with 8K addressable memory) performs the calculations.

Opt.01 is an OCXO for improved stability.

Rear interface

  • 14A − Ext Clock in (1, 5 or 10 MHz, ≥3 V into 1 kΩ)
  • 14B − Prescale; when low, counter divides readout by 16

  • 16A − CH A input (50 Ω, ≤10 VRMS) (GND return on 17A)
  • 17B − CH B input (50 Ω, ≤10 VRMS) (GND return on 16B)
  • 22A − Trig Level CH A
  • 22B − Trig Level CH B
  • 23A − Shaped Out A (GND return on 23B)
  • 24B − Shaped Out B (GND return on 24A)
  • 26A − Reset in (active low)
  • 26B − Remote Start
  • 27A − Arming in (TTL, active high) (GND return in 28A)
  • 28B − Gate Out (TTL, active high)
