Texas Instruments introduced with the TI-5315 in 1988 the unique combination of a printer-less 12-digit commercial desktop calculator with a built-in clock. Compared with the TI-3510 introduced almost 15 years earlier, added the TI-5315 much more functionality into a slightly larger package.
Dismantling the TI-5315 reveals a clean design centered around a NEC uPD75206 4-bit single-chip microcomputer.
Originally developed for VCR controller and similiar applications, matches the architecture of the uPD75206 perfect the requirements of the TI-5315:
|6k Byte program memory|
|369 x 4 bit data memory|
|Integrated watch circuit with 5 uA standby current|
|Integrated drivers for VF-Displays|
|0.95 us instruction cycle time @ 4.19 MHz crystal frequency|
printed circuit board (PCB) of the TI-5315 doesn't mention its manufacturer, but
the label on the backside of the calculator gives two hints:
The Date code with the leading "Z"
identifies Zeny Corporation in|
Taiwan, ROC as the contract manufacturer of the TI-5315.
|The UL-File number E42662 of the
calculator reveals it as a product|
manufactured by Toshiba TEC Corp.
Don't miss the database of all known UL-File numbers found on Texas Instruments calculators.
Texas Instruments continued the design language of the TI-5315 and introduced in 1989 the sibblings TI-5322 and TI-5332 sporting a printer but missing the clock.
