The TI-5028 uses a much simpler hardware than the original TI-2800 Paperless Printer

TI-5028_BACK.jpg (297516 Byte)Instead an external RAM to store up to 99 lines of calculation results the TI-5028 uses a single-chip microcomputer. The drawback is the reduced storage capacity of only 45 lines. 

Like its predecessor makes the TI-5028 use of two individual LC-displays.

The TI-5038 received the same cost optimization, compare it with the later TI-5038 II.




The TI-5028 is featured in the Texas Instruments Incorporated sales catalog CL-1233 dated 1994.
