TI-506_PCB.jpg (43976 Byte)The TI-506 was one of the very cheap calculator sold by Texas Instruments. A small, slanted housing, rubber keys and solar cells enhanced by a colorful type designation. That's it ! 

A similar calculator with batteries instead of the solar cells was introduced with the TI-502.


The TI-506 is featured in the Texas Instruments Incorporated bulletin CL-888 dated 1986.
