Texas Instruments introduced with the TI-1726 in 1998 a very basic calculator with solar cells and a memory.

This TI-1726 manufactured in October 2000 by Kinpo Electronics, Inc. in China uses chip-on-board (COB) technology, while the original design still used a conventional IC-housing for its Sharp LI3154 calculator brain.

In 2003 Texas Instruments introduced with the TI-503SV, TI-1706SV and TI-1795SV a new calculator design style and reshaped the TI-1726 slightly. 

This TI-1726 is one of the 6 calculators that were awarded with the Blue Angle environmental label. But Texas Instruments never decorated the calculator with the logo.
