TI-1706+ got again a rounder shape and different keys compared to the earlier TI-1706+
introduced three years earlier. This design theme was
introduced with the TI-503+.
Dismantling this TI-1706+ manufactured in June 1996 by Nam Tai Electronics, Inc. in China reveals a typical design of the 1990's centered around a single-chip calculator circuit hiding under a black epoxy-blob.
In contrast with the original TI-1706+ based on the TI-106 this second edition sports a "TI-1706+ only" printed circuit board (PCB) inside.
A similar housing with a tiltable display was used with the TI-1766+.
