The TI-1100 II followed the short-lived TI-1100 introduced in 1983 and features an enhanced keyboard.

Dismantling this TI-1100 II Prototype manufactured in October 1984 by Inventec Corporation in Taiwan reveals a clean design centered around a Toshiba T6985S single-chip calculator soldered on a single-sided printed circuit board (PCB) and powered by a LR43 battery. Please notice that the original TI-1100 used a single-sided PCB too, while the final design of the TI-1100 II switched to a double-sided PCB.

Inspecting the PCB of this TI-1100 II Prototype calculator brought our attention to two small marks reading ITI1100-02A respectively ITI1101-02A and we started compiling a list of the PCB-Marks on calculators manufactured by OEMs for Texas Instruments.
