TI-1706_I0384_Back.jpg (109760 Byte)The third design of the TI-1706 looks at first glance identical to the second design but deciphering the Date codes suggests Inventec Corporation in Taiwan as contract manufacturer of the calculator. Earlier calculators were manufactured by Compal Electronics in Taiwan.

Dismantling this TI-1706 manufactured in March 1984 reveals a completely different internal construction compared with the previous TI-1706

Later calculators removed the "LIGHT POWERED" sign, don't miss the 4rd design of the TI-1706.
