Texas Instruments introduced in the United States of America in 1986 a family of three very similiar calculators:
|• TI-1796: Basic desktop
calculator with 10 digits display capability and "Dual Power" feature
• TI-1798: TI-1796 with added clock module
• BA-20: TI-1798 with 6 added keys for COST, SELL, MARGIN calculations
this TI-1796 manufactured in November 19986 by
Inventec Corporation in Taiwan
reveals indeed a printed circuit board (PCB) with the designation
"IOTI-1796-01A" - known already from the TI-1798.
Don't miss the TI-1796+ introduced about 10 years after this first generation TI-1796.
The BA-20 Profit Manager is featured in the Texas Instruments Incorporated bulletin CL-885 dated 1986.
