Re: Prism 3002 TekLink 174-1391-00 or 174-1152-00 cable data needed

Been just looking through my 6 Various Tektronix Prism Logic Manual when I came across a VERY interesting WARNING against using theo the 174-1391-00 at 9 inches verses the Teklink cable 174-1152-00 at 4ft On page 14 of Tektronix Publication 070-7696-05, July 1993 titled 'Application Module & Expansi...

Re: Prism 3002 TekLink 174-1391-00 or 174-1152-00 cable data needed

Well I got to briefly talk by phone to a retired Tek engineer, that was involved with Logic Analyzers. Sadly he really did not wish to offer any support not information. I tried to explain my Teklink problem, but he re said he could not help. My final comment to him was "I cannot even make a cable a...

Re: Prism 3002 TekLink 174-1391-00 or 174-1152-00 cable data needed

By the way I would appreciate some feedback for those reading this post. even if its general in nature. I would have though if your reading a post in such a very specific focused forum group, then you would most likely have or use a Tektronix Logic Analyzer or have some interest in owning one. And w...

Re: Prism 3002 TekLink 174-1391-00 or 174-1152-00 cable data needed

Well I just ordered a couple of the following 26 pin connectors to prepare to make a interconnect cable, between the 3001 main frame and my 3001E expansion frame. Its going to be hit and miss, since I have NO idea of the 3001E Texlink plug pinouts. Just wish I could get data on these TekLink 174-139...

Hi all, Well I am beginning to think that the number of these Tektronix Logic Analyzer 3001E expansion boxes sold with the teklink cable must have been very low. I have had zero response to my question in this or any of the other forums I have posted in. Guess over the coming month, I will try and f...

Hi all, Doing further research on the IDE interface for the Prism 3002 and 3001, I found the following disclaimer in the "- version" Tek Service Manual ((070667601.pdf)) for the Prism.

Re: Tek PRISM 3002/3001 ST-506 & IDE Hard Drive interface pcb -

Hi Lee,

I now have the Circuit of the IDE interface and over the coming weeks will work out the GAL logic. Then it should be possible to make a couple of trial boards.

Is there anyone else in need of HD interface Board ?

Keep in touch

Hi Lee I am going to get my 3001 out of storage today Sunday 30th April. Cannot recall if it has an HD installed or not. I mostly use my 3002's, which I have, in a separate thread on this forum, posted photos of the Hard Drive interfaces they use. Will be interesting to see if the 3002 Hard drive in...

Re: 3001GPX refurbishment

Dont bin (scrap) your Prism. The software and manuals are available on web. Just requires some searching. Maybe try Bitsavers or Ko4bb dot com Also it maybe possible to add back a HD to the unit. They had 2 variants. ST506 and IDE drives. The trick is to find the small printed circuit board that is ...
