We know this very stylish and flat housing from the TI-1755 introduced one year earlier. This TI-1002 succeeds the earlier TI-1001 and seems to be identical with the TI-1036.
We are not positive why this calculator was brought to the
market as TI-1002 and TI-1036. Probably the TI-1002 was sold only in Canada
while other countries received the TI-1036.
Dismantling the TI-1002 reveals the typical construction of this era:
| A single-chip calculator IC in a conventional housing
A small printed circuit board (PCB) fixed with heat-stamping in the housing
The LC-Display connected with a flat cable
