1240D1--Channel 100 MHz Data Acquisition Card.
The 1240/D2 18-Channel Data Acquisition Card is a 50MHz plug-in for the 1240 Logic Analyzer.
Uses P6460 Data Acquisition Probes
"The Tektronix 1240 Logic Analyzer is a portable, general-purpose digital design and troubleshooting tool. The 1240D card supports high-speed hardware analysis with nine acquisition channels @ 100Mhz (10ns) and 5 ns glitch detection."
The 1240 and 1241 are the HP1630/50 of Tek logic analyzers... Relatively easy to setup and use for a beginner, but they can go to "ridiculously complex" if you really want to. They have ROM cartridges that allow for mnemonic disassembly and state analysis of most processors. (Hmmm, I should probably make some "multigame" mnemonic cartridges since they're impossible to find for sale.) The 1240/1 also support serial ports, printer ports, etc. You can "program" the capture module to get the most use from the memory-- when doing video work recently I'd do things like have the Tek count occurrances on my "hblank" line (to get to a certain line on the screen), and then trigger and grab the data I wanted. You can do all sorts of "wait for this, then count this N times, then wait for this, then look for this, and then grab all the data" nesting and whatnot.
