Re: Tektronix Technical Briefs (or whatever they're called in 2020)


 

Hi Roy,
In the 1970s and 1980s they were known generically as Application Notes. Tek changed their numbering system several times for various reasons.
* In some cases they were published by the group that created the instruments (Spectrum Analyzer articles came from that group for instance).
* In some cases they were created by the marketing person for a particular product line (like the TM500 instruments).
* In some cases they were created by a separate division of Tek (like the TV Instruments, or Laboratory Scopes divisions).
* In some cases they were articles written for trade publications which Tek had permission to reprint.
* Some excellent articles were written for Tek Periodicals such as Service Scope, Handshake, etc.
As if that wasn't confusing enough the same Application Notes were printed with different numbering systems when Tek tried to place all of these things under one group within the company.

So to answer your question: There is no rhyme or reason for how Tek did it.

For several decades, Tektronix has released these "Technical Briefs:" a.k.a. Technical Documents, Application Notes, and possibly other names.
Is there a single point(s) of curation for them?
