The TI-5032 was the first battery operated printing desktop calculators introduced by Texas Instruments. 

The design fits neatly to the other desktop calculators of the time:

TI-5008    Pocket-sized, thermal printing
TI-5010    Small-sized, standard paper
TI-5032    Desktop-sized, battery option
TI-5130    10-digits, standard paper
TI-5142-III 12-digits, standard paper
TI-5020    Non-printing, solar powered

The housing and internal construction of the original TI-5032 was used with a complete line of very similar calculators:



Integrated Circuit



1983 Mitsubishi M58349P 10 digits
TI-5030 II 1984 Mitsubishi M58345AP 12 digits
TI-5032 1983 t.b.d. 10 digits
TI-5032 II      
TI-5035 1985 Mitsubishi M58347P 12 digits


The successful TI-5032 line was manufactured from 1983 till 1988 when the TI-5029 and TI-5033 were introduced.
In the year 1991 the design was changed but the idea kept. View the later TI-5032 here.
