The 7912 high speed digitizer was introduced in September 1973 and achieved a bandwidth of 500 MHz with a 7A19 vertical amplifier plug-in and 1 GHz bandwidth by accessing the CRT deflection plates directly with a 7A21N plug-in.  This description of the R7912 is from the August 2012 issue of the Tektronix Retirees News.

The 7912 is described in the November-December 1973 issue of Tekscope.  Click on the image to view the PDF.
