TI-1002_Back.jpg (128475 Byte)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. 

TI-1002_PCB.jpg (188293 Byte)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
