The TI-5018SV was introduced in 2001 ahead of the stylish TI-503SV, TI-1706SV and TI-1795SV calculators. Compared with the original TI-5018 we notice a different keyboard layout and a new coloring schema.
The main features with an easy to read 12-digit SuperView display, a backspace key for easy corrections, a percent key and Grand Total (GT) and Mark Up (MU) keys are identical. Both decimal and rounding settings are still selectable with a sliding switch.
this TI-5018SV manufactured in April 2001 by
Kinpo Electronics in China reveals
a standard Far East design with a huge printed
circuit board (PCB) for the keyboard and some smaller remaining components.
This first generation of the TI-5018 was centered around a Sharp LI3164AR single-chip calculator circuit, the second generation hides its genes under a small epoxy-blob.
Inspecting the PCB of this TI-5018SV calculator brought our attention to a small mark reading D86T-10-2 and we started compiling a list of the PCB-Marks on calculators manufactured by OEMs for Texas Instruments.
