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


These are a small fraction of the total number of Application Notes that were available from Tek. I accumulated this list because they have something to do with the 7000 Series of Scopes. This list was assembled from many different sources because they were of interest to me.

Subject: [TekScopes] Tektronix Technical Briefs (or whatever they're called in 2020)

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?
