The TI-EC7 Pro+ replaced in 2007 the TI-EC7 Pro introduced only one year earlier.
At first glance the only changes are a new up-to-date design but Texas Instruments addressed the owners of the original TI-EC7 Pro with an important product update:
|EC7 Pro Product Update
We have recently become aware of a computational issue with the EC-7 calculator. This does not affect the EC-3 or EC-5 models, or any of TI’s other calculators. When inputting figures less than 1.0 on the EC-7, you must input a zero before the decimal. Otherwise the answer will be incorrect. For example, in the EC-7 100 – .5-.5 = 100; 100- 0.5-0.5 = 99.

the TI-EC7 Pro+ reveals a
printed circuit board (PCB) 100% identical with the TI-EC7 Pro and we assume
that the fault was corrected by a software update of the single-chip calculator
circuit hidden under the small black epoxy-resin blob.
