Here are some publications regarding IDD products.


Plot-10 was advanced graphing software subroutines written in FORTRAN IV to provide high level device drivers for interfacing to the Tektronix 4010 family of graphic terminals.  It was designed to meet the needs in a wide range of problems encountered in business, scientific, and engineering environments to generate a variety of common plots and specialized graphs.  It was also the interface layer for other software products offered by Tektronix.  This 1971 brochure describes the features and benefits of the Plot-10 software.  Click on the image to open the PDF.

Tekniques was an application newsletter for IDD graphic products.  This particular issue from Fall of 1982 has articles on the 4010, 4020, 4050, and 4110 series of graphic terminals as well as options and other peripherals.


Here is a scan of a tablet of paper with a very light washout of a graphic showing the price performance range of the Tektronix graphic terminals.  We believe this pad is from 1988 as the 4209 was introduced by then and the 4211, replacing the 4111, was introduced the following year.  Monarch, at the bottom was the IBM PC add-in card for Tek graphics.
