Texas Instruments introduced already in 1990 with the original TI-1775 a calculator using a foldable housing. The TI-1775+ added a simple clock to the basic calculator functionality and matches the styling of the TI-307+ and TI-2200+.

Dismantling this TI-1775+ manufactured in January 1997 by Cal-Comp Electronics in Thailand reveals a rather simple construction based on an unknown single-chip calculator circuit mounted in Chip-on-Board (COB) technology on a double-sided printed circuit board (PCB) and powered by four small solar cells and a LR44 backup battery for the clock.

Inspecting the PCB of this TI-1775+ calculator brought our attention to a small mark reading CL7-13 and we started compiling a list of the PCB-Marks on calculators manufactured by OEMs for Texas Instruments.
