This is the "Plugin Sidebar" template.

If you have come here looking to edit the page for a particular instrument, you took a wrong turn – please do not edit this template.
Instead, please go back to the instrument's page and edit that.

This template is for generic plug-in modules. We have specialized templates Template:TM500 and Template:TM5000 for the respective plug-in series. Where applicable, please use these specialized templates instead.

This template should be invoked in the following format: Example:
{{Plugin Sidebar
|manufacturer=
|series=
|type=
|summary=
|image=
|caption=
|introduced=
|discontinued=
|designers=
|manuals=
}}
{{Plugin Sidebar
|manufacturer=Tektronix
|series=500-series scopes
|type=XYZ
|summary=Amplifier
|image=Picture of XYZ Plugin.jpg
|caption=Description of the above picture
|introduced=1966
|discontinued=(?)
|designers=John Doe;Jane Doe
|manuals=
* [[Media:070-1234-56.pdf|Tektronix XYZ Instruction Manual]] (PDF)
}}

manufacturer= should be a page name, series= should be a page name (of the series or model this plug-in is compatible with), designers= a semicolon-delimited list of page names.

This template adds [[Category:Introduced in (year)]] to the article. If the introduction or discontinuation year is unknown, please use (?) in its place, e.g. introduced=(?).

This template adds rows to the table "Products", which is declared by the template Product. View table.
