Tektronix designed and fabricated its own integrated circuits for use in Tek instruments.

Part numbers 155-xxxx-xx and 234-xxxx-xx ICs were Tek-made.

In 1994, Tektronix sold its internal IC fab (called the Integrated Circuits Operation, ICO) to Maxim while keeping it located on the Beaverton campus. This deal provided Maxim with its first own fabrication facility and important bipolar design expertise, and Tektronix with better utilization of the fab.

Maxim eventually stopped making Tek-specific chips because of lack of volume.
